Summer Eclectic Home Tour 


Welcome if you're new here!  Even if you aren't new, you're in for a treat today as I partner up with some amazing eclectic bloggers to bring you a summer home tour!


The past few months have been a bit of a blur.  With design work, Hubby changing jobs, still hunting for flip house #6, and getting this new website together all while helping plan my sister-in-law's wedding this past weekend, I'm not sure where 2016 has gone so far!  I'm ready to freshen things up a bit and jump head first into summer!


I'm in simplification mode.  My style often swings between maximalist and minimalist.  I'm pretty sure my little house has reached max capacity, so I'm on a "get rid of all the things" kick.  Anything that's not currently in use (any maybe some things that are) are in danger of getting sold at a tag sale in a few weeks.


Part of my simplification also involved painting over my turquoise striped living room walls just a few weeks ago.  It's amazing how a simple wall color shift changes the entire feel of a room!  I'm excited now to be able to bring in some more vibrant colors and patterns that having turquoise striped walls just didn't allow.  Well, I mean I could have before, but I really didn't want to give myself or my guest's a headache from design over-load.


I will begrudgingly admit, almost half of my house is different grays now, but when I do color, I do COLOR- just check out our dining room.  I naturally have some projects planned for the dining room, but never fear, purple is not going anywhere.


If you know me at all, you know I love the story behind a home and my own home is no different.  The MCM dining chairs were a side of the road find and the piano, while it's seen better days, was my grandmother's piano that I grew up playing.


I'm not sure I've even photographed the bedroom as a whole in the past year since we uncovered and and had the original wide plank pine floors refinished.


Between the 116+ year old floors and my $10 tag sale rug, I could stare at this all day.




I was able to sneak up on an unwitting model as she slept.  #putacatonit
