A Red, White & Blue Summer Home Tour 2017

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to my R-W-B (Red, White & Blue)  Summer Home tour! First of all, I would like to extend a big "THANK YOU" to the lady behind it all, Marty from A Stroll Thru Life! You are amazing in every possible way dear, thank you for organizing, being patient and of course, for including me in this fantastic group of ladies! 

And as the title of this post implies,you kinda know that my Summer Home is filled with these colors. For someone who does not use RED quite often (except for the holidays), this is a big step for me! So come on in and hope you enjoy the tour!

Our simple RWB Front porch
I kinda figured that since the 4th of July is just around the corner, might as well enjoy my patriotic decor early right?!

Now, let's head off to our Dining room, where most of the RWB decor is!

I transferred my huge Matisse print in the dining room and placed some of my blue and white ceramic plates and jar here too.

I love these Red Carnations!

I used my Jonathan Adler plates and brought out my red chargers for the table. The placemat is made from gift wrap I cut to size!

I think my red acrylic utensils go perfect with this setting too! A thrift score from years past.

Red Cherry Blossoms are a score from At Home and the plates are part of a small but growing collection

Now let's head off to the Living Room...

 I didn't spend much for my Summer Home decor at all obviously, since the pillow covers are Christmas staples in my home and the art works are mostly made by yours truly.

I scored this scarf print pillow cover from EBAY and I love the greens on it!

Now, I truly enjoy decorating our console obviously. I did not change much of it from my Spring home tour (which you can check HERE ), except for the giant leaves (Homegoods score) and the Cherry Art print, and the carnations in the pots of course! ;-)

I love this RWB John Robshaw for TARGET throw that I scored years ago. It's light-weight and
of course, perfect for my theme this year!

I have a toddler who likes to keep us all busy so I had to include her small work table -
luckily, it's RED! LOL!

I finally got to use my brass hippo book stands!

Proud to say, all RED ARTWORKS are proudly made by yours truly!

I call this one "Sea of  Poppy"! The chinoiserie art is an original from Kerry Steele

My other set of abstracts

Their called "Dragons I-IV"
We're almost done, let's head on back...

The only space where RWB is no where to be seen.... YET! ;-)

I love all the succulents I planted in my giant Clam shell this year!

My husband added the railing on our back porch himself late last year! And I just finished painting the bottom railing to black (before it was white, dirty white;-)).

I'm getting ready to renovate our Master Bedroom so that's something to look out for in the next couple of weeks, and definitely something that'll keep me quite busy!

I hope you head on now to Linda from "It all started with Paint" and the rest of the group. I posted all the links below in case you've missed the previous days!
