Summer Home Love

 Good morning, friends!  I'm excited to welcome you to my blog and share some easy ways to decorate your home for summer.

 In the spring I participated in a fun home tour with a diverse bunch of talented bloggers.  Today we're back!  I'm sharing how I gave a few areas in my house a lighter look for the warmer months.

 If you're visiting from Creekwood Hill, hello!  I'm so happy you stopped by.

 I've added a few seasonal touches to the kitchen.  I love cooking with fresh herbs.  I like to keep a planter with oregano on my counter to clip and add to whatever I'm cooking.  The greenery livens up this area and keeps my kitchen smelling fresh.
 During the summer months we usually start our day with fruit and yogurt.

Nothing fancy!  This is easy when you don't want to cook.

 The shelf in my kitchen is used to display a few of my favorite pitchers.
I love to collect them and group a few together.

They can also be filled with fresh flowers.
I added hot pink and white peonies for a summery touch.
I keep the basket filled with fruit to encourage healthy snacking!

Heading through the doors is our garage turned bedroom.

  Our bedroom is filled with plants and flowers.  Plants are an inexpressive way to decorate your home for summer.

Pink peonies smell so fragrant.

 I like to switch out the candles for a favorite summer scent.

This fragrance smells sweet and pleasant long after the candle is put out.

 I added a few more patterned pillows to my couch.

Pillows are an effortless way to update your space for summer.  The floral pillow is a nice accent.

I clipped a few flowers from the yard and stuck them in a vase on my desk.  If your yard is full of greenery, take advantage and create a free arrangement.

Thank you so much for following along.  Next up on the tour is Farmhouse For Five.

Below is the entire list of participating bloggers.  Be sure to head over to see some amazing inspiration.
