Welcome to the brand new Summer Colors Home Tour!! Several bloggers are joining together to share how they decorate their home with a favorite summer color. Each day this week you’ll find creative bloggers sharing inspiration – they’re all listed at the end of this post.
My color choice is green in a range of shades. From apple green to forest green, I think I’ve got the spectrum pretty well covered. My inspiration is nature – green grass, leafy trees, green apples, you name it!
In the family room, light weight cotton throws in a cheery yellow green brighten my favorite tufted chair from Pier 1. My little fiddle leaf fig in the corner lends a darker forest green to add some depth and life to the space.
A collection of over-sized apple green pillows from HomeGoods get cozy on the sectional. The first time I fell in love with apple green was when Tom from “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” painted a powder room in this energetic hue. A deep green garland with white flowers frames my architectural print of the Paris train station.
My favorite vintage brown bottles on the coffee table pull in earth tones to complement the greens of nature.
My choice of summer colors continues into the dining room.
Last week I shared a summer table setting in shades of green; now the table is cleared and a new centerpiece has taken over.
You might remember that this white bowl from Portugal was filled with pink and white flowers in my spring family room. It now resides on the dining table and cradles natural spheres in green, cream, and brown twig balls.
If you’re a frequent reader, you might remember my new green bottles that decorate the dining console table.
The sitting room enjoys a few shades of softer greens. I swapped out the gray cabinet for the creamy shabby chic style cabinet that was in the dining room. Soft green quilted pillows pair with a light gray cotton throw. I pulled the colors from the country canvas print on the wall.
New white vases join my green vase for an earthy summer vignette.
The mini canvas landscape prints from my spring mantel moved over here with a few more of my favorite blue-green vases that I found at a local boutique.
I think the smaller cream cabinet fits in this space better. Plus it helps brighten the space a bit.
I hope you enjoy my summer colors of green in a variety of shades. I’ve never used green so much in my decor and find I really love its organic, earthy appeal. Now head to the rest of Monday’s bloggers who are sharing their summer colors. And then stop by each day this week to get the updated links for the rest of my blogging friends!
