After a spring season where the dining room table was set with pastels, eggs and bunny plates, I’m ready for my summer inspired dining space to feel relaxed and uncluttered.
While I was changing out spring décor for summer décor in the living room, I started thinking about how to create an easy summer tablescape in the kitchen. I’m in love with the cabin inspired summer mantle so I wanted to play off that inspiration with an easy summer tablescape.
Every year, my parents would let us go to sleep away camp. I never forgot those carefree days of hiking, horseback riding, crafting and swimming in the lake. These fun filled memories became the motivation for the cabin inspired summer mantel.
We were in the middle of the porch and patio makeovers when I realized we were going to have to get creative with furniture placement. Here’s a look at how we shopped our house and updated the front porch.
We’ve been working on this backyard patio makeover reveal for weeks. I wanted to create a space that felt relaxed and comfortable. An outdoor extension to the indoor living spaces that was a place to laugh, unwind, eat, host parties and grill out.
One of my favorite memories with my sisters happened a few years ago. My middle sister hosted a Kentucky Derby Party that everyone still talks about. We searched for months to find just the right hat and outfit. As soon as I saw the roses in full bloom right outside my office window this morning I started thinking about how that event inspired my Kentucky Derby Inspired Mantle.
Does anyone else feel like Easter snuck up on them this year? In the midst of running around to find new inventory, painting multiple pieces of furniture, restocking the booth with fresh finds and taking necessary counsel from my tax advisor, I’ve almost forgotten to prepare for one of the most important seasons of the year.
