I’m excited to share our summer home tour today! My blog friend Marty from A Stroll Thru Life is hosting summer tours all week, so be sure to check them out at her site. SO many beautiful blogs and inspiration! If you’re coming over from 11 Magnolia Lane, welcome! Christy and Amy are so talented.
I don’t do a lot of summer decorating specifically, but I have added some lighter touches and a little more color over the past few weeks. And of course, bunches of flowers!
First up, the outside…I planted the front porch planters and window boxes a couple weeks ago. I always go back to my tried and true flower — the petunia. They fill in so beautifully and start spilling over within a few weeks…my favorite!
I always know summer is here when we hang the flag again:
In a couple weeks these window boxes will be twice as full! I added some asparagus fern as well, which grows like crazy and will be spilling over in no time:

The foyer has fresh peonies, thanks to Trader Joe’s! I had some dark pink peonies from my bushes here a couple weeks ago — that color bloomed early for me:
I changed out the light here a few weeks back to a hanging fixture:
I found it at Menards and it was super affordable. I love the flush mount that was here (it’s now in our pantry) but always felt like the foyer needed something larger. I LOVE it.
I recently started a laundry/mud room makeover and I’m so thrilled with it. I don’t “style” my photos often — what you see here is what it looks like all of the time. 😉 But it was fun to add some summer touches because, YAY, the coats are gone for a few more months:
If you’ve been reading for awhile you KNOW how I love a good napkin pillow. 😉 I made the pink pillows with these discounted Pottery Barn napkins. I used a neutral fabric I had in my scrap pile for the back so I could get more than one out of the two napkins.
Pink and blue are so lovely together, right?
My light pink peony bush was STUNNING this year! I cut them a little too late, but they were still so beautiful:
