Early Summer Great Room Updates

I wanted to jump right into my early summer decor but couldn’t pass up an opportunity to show my peonies ;) These flowers just keep getting prettier, even as the petals fall.  We are so excited to make the transition to warmer days.  Our summers are short here in the PNW so if there is good weather planned we always take advantage of that!

As the weather warms I instantly feel like creating a coastal vibe in our home. Most of my summer decor consists of items I already have  simply repurposed or relocated from a different area of our home.  I found the French linen pillow covers on Etsy, a wonderful resource for so many items.

We purchased a new valence for the kitchen and window panels for the French doors.  Both are fully lined an I’m pleased with the way everything looks.

A quick and inexpensive update idea for the kitchen is to drape a new linen over your sink.  I use these bar mops for daily spills and the linen towels for draping over our farm house sink.  If you purchase good quality linens they wash well and you’ll have them forever.  Vintage cutting boards can be purchased here or here and look so pretty tucked away in corners or in groups to make a statement.

A wood tray was added to contain a few of my daily cooking supplies along with a vintage framed picture, adding soomething that’s a bit unexpected.

We desperately needed to update our coffee table!  I found this contemporary oak table that was within our budget and I totally love it.  The extra storage below is perfect for baskets and books.  Pillows are an easy, inexpensive way to elevate the mood in your space.  I added French Linen covers to my pillows and replaced my winter throw with a machine washable acrylic throw.  I also have two Karima print pillow covers that are gorgeous and currently on sale.

Our entry is small and has always been a challenge to work with.  Currently I have a dark wood hunt board and an antique French mirror there to ground the space. I finally found a table lamp that works with coastal style and space limitations. We also added a  pretty and functional leather catchall, book, candle, and an orchid planted in a clam shell for a bit of whimsy.
