Summer Color {my home}


Some changes have been happening in the living room....
I've turned up the color quotient even more from Spring, and it's here to stay!


New green and white floral "Rosalie Chair" from Pier 1 and also a new "Redmond Stripe" rug from Pottery Barn.  The rug that was in here before has moved on up (like The Jeffersons) to the Master Bedroom.
{Daisies from the garden in a vintage milk bottle, and if you look carefully you will see a "present" in the form of Minnie Mouse on the side table in the background, compliments of my daughter}

{Love this new chair!}

A view of the other side...
{Do you spy a pennant pillow?}

The red chair had a white slipcover on it and used to be in my daughter's room.  I bought the new red cover at IKEA (the chair is from there).  The rocking chair that was in it's place is in her room now.

 {Always inspired by Cath Kidston style and colors}

This is my most favorite "look" I have done in the house so far, I feel it is truly "me"!


The whole room...
A little nook...

Hope to share some pictures of the dining room, attached to this room, soon...it has undergone some changes from spring too!

It has been a busy summer so far with events, family, and friends...wishing there was more time in the day for projects, blogging, and blog reading!  I did carve out some time for a fun project recently with the talented Kris at Junk Chic Cottage!  She had me {Cottage Industry} photograph her home and we will have some exciting news about that whole project soon to share!!  I've got some other fun events/projects I have been working on and plan to share soon as well...

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

XO,
Stacey

Love the sweet cottage feel of this room! It has that kick off your shoes and curl up with a good book feel! And I just might have to get that chair for my bedroom - super cute!

Bronwyn said...

Oh Stacey! These jolts of colour shout "summer!" The red is the best. I love how it adds zing yet compliments all of the other things in the room. Great mixing of patterns, too.

Stacey, your living room looks so cozy and inviting. I love color too, so it's nice to see how much warmth and comfort it brings to a room. Your ladder is perfect to bring height in the corner. Great idea to use it for books.

Holly- Cutie Pie Cottage said...

Oh yes! Bring on the color! I love the soothing feeling of a quieter color scheme but color just makes me feel happy. Soothing can happen while we sleep- right?

Love the addition of Minnie. :) A future sylist in the making.

Can't wait to see what you're up too with your friend. ♥

Tricia said...

What a bright and cheery room, Stacey! I love what you've done :)

Junkchiccottage said...

Stacey your pictures are beautiful!! I have been in this beautiful home of yours and it is stunning and so beautiful how you put the textures, prints and colors all together. Stunning is an understatement. Thanks for taking all the pictures of my home I can't wait for the reveal!!!!! I love love love that chair from Pier One!!! It is all beautiful.

Vicki Shead said...

I LOVE IT ALL! I need this look in my home! I bet you could come and arrange/move things in my home to add some extra cuteness... email me your pricing, I'd love to save and have you come in the fall for a fun weekend. Let me know if you're game!

TJ said...

I love the chair, too! I've got a chair that I would love to reupholster in that same fabric!

Art and Sand said...

I am a color girl so I love your living room changes. I had to laugh because we obviously have similar tastes. I have the Cath Kidston book on a little table next to me right now and the Cottage Style book is across the room in a basket. I am busy hunting down fabric to make new sofa slipcovers. I might just go with white and spice it up with colorful pillows.

Whoops! Cath Kidston! I was way off the mark on that one :) Can't even blame it on a typo ;)

It's perfect! I love how your home is such an expression of YOU!

Erin said...

Okay, Stacey, we're gonna have to have a little chit chat. You can't keep doing this to me! Every time you post photos of rooms in your house, I go completely ga-ga over how exquisite everything is!! :)

I love how you effortlessly mix cottage, farmhouse, and vintage elements and create these utterly breath-taking spaces. You are so talented!

And I'm terribly curious to see what changes are afoot in the dining room...

So glad you're enjoying the summer. I've been scrambling to find time to blog and leave comments too, but that's how it goes this time of year. Gotta enjoy summer while it's here!

Take care,
Erin
