Well hello there, summer! So nice to see you again! Or, is it? Want me to be honest? I’ve always hated summer. Like hated it with a passion. I strongly dislike being hot, I have really thick naturally curly hair that doesn’t get along with this season, and St. Louis humidity is brutal! Fall will always have my heart, but, you guys, I’m kind of digging the start of this summer already. Who am I?
Since Missouri is trying her hardest to skip over spring and fall nowadays, I am trying to make amends with the weather we are left with. Extreme hot and extreme cold, sometimes both in the same day. Welcome to the Midwest! I decided that I am going to try my hardest to enjoy this summer, even if I am drenched in sweat, I’m going to make the best of it. And so far so good. Summer nights are my favorite though, sitting outside with the crickets and frogs, and a cool breeze after a long hot day. The best!
What better way to celebrate the beauty of summer than by joining some of my blogging friends in this Summer Colors Tour, hosted by my sweet friend Jennifer from Town and Country Living! If you are new here, welcome! Let’s get to it!
Let me start by saying, I am a neutrals girl for life! So adding color has always been a challenge for me. I have been on this kick lately with staying true to my style, so the color I added to our vintage inspired guest bedroom was a fun olive green. It’s natural, and goes along with the greenery I use, so it was easy to incorporate without it looking out of place.
I have had a huge love affair with this color for years and years, but was always so scared to play with it. I’ve been collecting finds in olive green hoping one day to finally put them all together or scatter them around my house for a pop of color.
My collection includes an antique green clock, an awesome old metal toolbox, and some vintage books. And greenery is a must in all spaces, so I added my favorite faux stems and potted plants too.
I love this oversized summer bag I found in the dollar spot at Target. I filled it with some stems and it now makes for a welcoming piece for the entry to our guest room.
What colors do you love bring out for summer? I would love to know!
And now the fun begins! Go hop around and visit my friends! Their homes never disappoint!
