It’s time for my Summer Home Tour and I am very excited to share all of the changes I have made to our house. Overall when I think of summertime, I envision bright and light spaces filled with pops of color; I want to be transported into vacation mode. With that in mind I transitioned some of my favorite rooms from very neutral to more color-oriented, primarily focusing in the blue family. The end result is everything I hoped!!

For today’s Tour I am mostly focusing on our outdoor spaces because this time of year its where we spend all of our time… hanging by the pool, sipping evening cocktails on the patio, and enjoying all the greenery. For a full tour of the first few photos I shared on our patio, see this post.

A little bit about our latest updates… I made a few changes in my family room {the more dramatic change is that I closed in a wall making the room more symmetrical, while the seasonal change was that I added so many fun nautical pillows and accessories}, then there’s the outdoor spaces {this was the biggest transformation of all where I went from elegant (before) to tropical (after)}, and lastly, I changed out our master bedroom bedding which made the room so bright and fresh!! Overall I am loving the colors and texture in these spaces and I am excited to share the highlights as well as endless links to shop the spaces today!

So on to my family room… Summer time calls for a bright and refreshing bar cart and since I am pregnant I stuck to lemonade with fresh lemons! I love greeting guests with a fab display when they enter our family room, and this does just the trick. Then heading into our family room, I have to tell you I am so excited that I finally closed in that awkward corner… the room feels so much more symmetrical now!! {See the before in this post where I had two gold shelves in the corner.} I added matching gold side tables {Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams} with matching lamps on either side of the main sofa which is both functional and beautiful, and then for accessories, I partnered with Pottery Barn to add pops of blue with patterned couch pillows. The room feels much less formal which I love for this time of year!

Then to my bedroom… I am in LOVE with the new bedding in our bedroom! The Alliance design by Yves Delorme with the blue embroidered details is so luxe; I feel like I’m at a French Resort. Also, I updated all of the little trinkets on my gold etagere to pastels {shop them below!}.

Heading back outside I created a whimsical garden tablescape for my summer time guests using potted plants as my centerpiece! {And if you are swooning for this floral “naked” cake, head to this post for a super easy step-by-step tutorial on how to make the cake at home!}.

Last but not least I finally furnished the outdoor space around our pool {in partnership with Frontgate!!}. I love the comfy couch area for watching swimmers, while the Café Round Folding Table and Chairs with the blue and white striped umbrellas above them were my husband’s dream for eating lunch outside with friends. Of course the pool towels match perfectly! And that concludes the tour!! Hoping everyone has a beautiful summer!
