SHADES OF SUMMER HOME TOUR WITH BEAUTIFUL BLUES AND FRESH GREENERY

Don’t you love Summer? There’s nothing like the laid back days and stress-free schedules of easy living. Welcome to my Summer home and the Shades of Summer home tour – I’ve teamed up with a very talented group on this tour –  you’ll be so inspired to bring Summer into your home by the time you’re finished visiting all the tours! You can find all participating bloggers linked at the bottom of my post. If you’re new to my blog and visiting from Ann of ON SUTTON PLACE, I’m so happy you stopped by…I love welcoming new readers to CitrineLiving – I hope you enjoy my home and blog and stay a while! If you’re a regular visitor, you know how much I love to have you here! I’m so excited to share how I’ve brought some summer touches to our home. As a blogger, it can be challenging finding new ways to reinvent our homes to bring you freshness with each new season. Since blue has become a signature color year round in our home, I decided to keep my color palette and layer verdant touches to celebrate the season and the surrounding outdoors, with layers of beautiful blues and fresh greenery. I hope you enjoy and get inspired! 

Large entryway with transom details lead to an open concept floor plan. Summer decorating with blue and white accents and fresh greenery keep the look light. I have to start off with an apology! My camera is in for repair and I’m using one that’s on loan – I had so much trouble with the lighting – please excuse the image quality and grain in some of my shots! This is the view from the front door as you enter our home. We have an open concept floor plan, and most of our living spaces are visible to one another. I’ve been building my collection of blue and white pottery for about 4 or 5 years now, and I love to add anything to the roster that I can use on tables, shelves, bathroom counters, dressers, you name it. Blue is such a versatile color and is a neutral, and although it adds punch, it goes with any other color (as all colors do)  and is always soothing to the eye.Large entryway with transom details lead to an open concept floor plan. Summer decorating with blue and white accents and fresh greenery keep the look light. Brass lantern style lighting and starburst mirror, a black and white graphic patterned rug help bring a sophisticated look.I’ve kept some of my blue and white pieces on our console table since February (I had mostly neutrals in the Fall and Winter) – I didn’t change much except add some new pieces and bring my conch shell lamp out of storage for the warm months ahead. I also tried a few different floral and greenery arrangements in here for these shots – something about the simple fresh cut greenery speaks to me…which one is your favorite?Large entryway with transom details lead to an open concept floor plan.

You can read my post on 4 different ways to style a console table here – it’s full of many great tips, you’ll love it – I often will use it as a reference for myself!

Let’s move over to our dining room, which is on the left of our foyer – again, an open concept space that helps to enlarge our home visually, and it also helps with the addition of natural light.

Tailored, custom white and grey pinstripe drapes add a traditional element.I’ll start off by talking about our new chairs I recently purchased – many of you know I’ve waited seven years – yes, seven long years for chairs to finish off this space. Although they’re not the style I was looking for, they were too good of a deal  to pass up, and I am seriously in love with their classic, timeless style and elegant detailing. I’ll come back to that in a minute.

You can link to these pillows right here. They’re so versatile and current, yet classic with their beautiful striped pattern. Speaking of stripes, I layered many different ones in this room, and there’s something else that’s new in here…Sophisticated and elegant dining room with transom details.

The tailored styling and rich details were the perfect addition to our dining room, and they compliment the other upholstered pieces beautifully.

Building on the blues I already had, I wanted the pillows to feel casual and comfortable, and since I moved some of the others to the dining room and bedroom (you’ll see that further down), I decided on a layered, mixed approach, for a relaxed vibe.Elegant, open concept living room, with with grey sofas and drum shade pendant lights create a neutral backdrop of layers of beautiful blue patterned pillows and blue and white pottery.

I can’t have enough of them – I have about 14 in total (I honestly lost count) and I use them all over the place, inside and out! I have a fabulous roundup post here, where you can read all about how, and where I love to use them. All that to say, I’m still on the hunt. I borrowed these ones from my mother, for this shoot, and unfortunately I’ll eventually have to give them back – she loves them dearly! So do my sisters, so it would not go over well if they accidentally went missing somehow…

Palm plants, hydrangeas and more fresh cut greenery from the yard bring Summer to this room, and I am in love with all the vibrant hues happening in here. This is the first time I’ve ever owed palms – they’re for the back patio makeover we’re working on – stay tuned for that one, coming a little later – and they’re amazing in here too. I’m praying I can keep them alive, I have no green thumb, that’s for sure!

Even though the room appears large, due to 11 foot ceilings, it’s not huge and we have a lot large pieces in here. To keep the ceiling-height shelves from looking overwhelming and cluttered, I keep the look clean and somewhat minimal.Summer decorated living with layers of beautiful blue patterned pillows accented with fresh palms.

    Love your home! You have a great eye for color and texture. Really inspiring! May I ask the source of your blue/gray table lamps in the living room. I’m on the hunt for a similar pair.
