Cool, Relaxed, SUMMER Rooms!

In my last post I gave you some ideas on how to create a summer look in your homes.

Today I am going to share with you some images of rooms that say.....
...... “S-U-M-M-E-R!”

Notice the display on the shelves and the mantel. Great pillow choice for a summer look.

The rough wood of the coffee table reminds me of the color of driftwood.

A simple shell display on the shelves makes each shell more important. 

Good choice in painting the back of the shelves a darker color so the white shells show up!

Baskets always add a great textural element to any room, but especially in a summer room!

By adding a small ocean inspired piece of art, this setting becomes Summerized!!

You can find all of the above images and more on my Pinterest board……

Hi Kathysue,
Thank you so much for your kind words on my blog post. I always enjoy your posts.
I love the mint green walls in the first picture. I just painted one of my client's daughter's room in this color and it came out fresh and cheery. Really livable.
Hope you have a great week,

Love how fresh and breezy it all feels...reminds me of being near the water and/or beach. Love a light colored room and agree baskets are always a good idea!

Beautiful Kathysue! The pop of black in each room gives another dimension!

In addition to being beautiful, these rooms are all so soothing! Summer is here, and I'm ready to relax. We have temps in the 90s all week.
