It is June, at least according to the calendar. Here in Colorado we've had some crazy springtime weather. Yes it is our spring, the tree's have just leafed and the wildflowers are in bloom. However, this is what the weather has been like.
As I said before I decorate the house for the seasons and holiday's. For the summertime I really enjoy moving the furniture around. I take the dinning room and turn it into our living room and vice versa. We eat on our covered porch in the summer and rarely inside, usually because Colorado Springs has such nice mild weather and no bugs so you can eat outside in the nice breeze every night. Hopefully tomorrow!
So here is the house tour. WELCOME!
As you come in the front door I kept the springtime flower arrangement.
But as you can see, I flipped my dinning and living room areas. The dinning room is now by the fireplace -
I decorated the table just with some simple lanterns. I think I may fill them with sand and sea shells but for now they are empty.
The buffet, still with its broken leg (that's how I roll) is along the one living room wall. I decorated it with sea shells, turtles, dragonflies and things that remind me of summer.
If you now turn to your left you can go down the traditional ranch style hallway.
To turn right you would normally find our dinning room, but now it is the living room area.
Here are some details. The end table. The box I got at Target a few months back. The black dragonfly stone I got in Boulder CO in May. The candle is a Yankee.
I also try to decorate my little 'widow' between the kitchen and the 'dinning room' for every season. My husband brought this little guy home from Germany on a business trip, he's an incense smoker and just too cute to not leave out all year long.
Now the kitchen. I didn't do much in here except to make a coffee station. I got the white tray at Home Goods and the Sugar and Creamer is my china, Lenox. The pattern is called Chesapeake.
We live on this porch during the summer. It is covered and cool. If it ever does get really hot (and that means in the 90's for us) we do have a mister on the porch to cool us off.
Directly to the left of the screen door is a wicker piece that I've had for years. I always decorate it in different ways and will move it around the porch depending on my mood.
Till Thursday - have a safe and happy week!
As always thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy what you've seen and might get some inspiration to flip some of your rooms around!
