You know I’m usually decorating with blue and white, and this year’s summer kitchen decor is no exception! I kept it very simple this summer season, playing off of my recent spring kitchen decorating and I added a quick update that I am sooooo in love with.

Can you spot it? You guessed right – that gorgeous new blue and white striped fabric on our kitchen bar stools

Our newly recovered stools are fresh, crisp and coastal – updating fabric is a super quick and easy way to transform the look of any space!
