Let’s get started!
Today’s tour is of two areas in our home that are places of comfort
to get out of the fierce South Texas summer heat:
the living room and our kitchen sitting area.
It is no surprise that I love blue and white and flea market finds.
In our living room,
I didn’t need another dining table , but when I saw the one above at a church rummage sale
several years ago, I couldn’t resist.
It has often served as an extra dining table when needed, but recently, I have used
it as a library table.
I added some of my favorite design and garden books and of course more blue and white,
The living room has always been a challenge to arrange because it is
long and narrow. My philosophy about design challenges in our home is
After talking the problem to death with our three daughters,
I just ignore the problem and do what I like.
This spring and summer
that has been the addition of hot pink to match my favorite bougainvillea
Earlier this summer, I also added apple green in our
kitchen sitting area, and I love how the green looks with blue and white.
This is the perfect place to read books from my ‘library’,
and it also the perfect place to call Daughters #1,2,and 3 on the phone and go a bridge too far with
my decorating questions.
I always know when that has happened because they begin by saying,
“Mother, we talked about that…”
And then I get off the phone and do what I want.
Thank you for stopping by my blog and home and thank you to Terri for including me in the
Sunny and Bright Summer Homes Tour.
Don’t forget to visit everyone!
