Blue Summer Living Room & My Win!

Good day everyone!

Finally, after or month long travel,  and weeks of settling back in, I'm finally ready to share with you 
our Summer Living room!

Blue, yellow/brass & green all around

The Last Time I probably get to use this coffee table for a while... :-(

I moved all my blue and white collection into the living room from the Dining room, and the plants all around made the room feel fresher too!

Piano Vignette

Symmetry is key

Our sitting area is all yellow

In love with this lamp!
I was very fortunate to WIN this beautiful Beige Chinoiserie Scene Lamp from 

 after participating in a raffle from the awesome blog...

I love it so much and have gotten so many compliments on it already!
There's so much more beautiful items available at The Enchanted Home Online Shop, from porcelain to silver, all their items are well-curated and all equally exquisite, you should check it out HERE soon!

Check out our thriving Fiddle leaf figs too!

Just beautiful
My mother-in-law pruned the tips last winter and look at all the new branches and leaves that have sprouted! They are just a joy, eliminating my 'black thumb curse' hopefully once and for all! ;-)

Our simple mantel

Doses of Blue and white in the media center as well

Our simple entry displaying my Cricket Box collection now
There you have it folks!
Hope I didn't bore you with all the details. 

This will also be probably the last time I get to use our old coffee table for a while since we will be switching to an ottoman soon! Thank you for all your suggestions on our Ottoman Search, it was truly a tough choice, but my hubs and I made the decision already and will explain and show you the 'winner' in the next week or so!

Hope your having a jolly Summer day!



  1. As always, Vel - your room is stunning! There are so many layers of perfection and the colors...beautiful. So sophisticated, but it still has a charming, homey feel. I think it's a good call to switch to a softer ottoman while Sophia is a toddler. It's such a short time and who knows, you might end up liking the ottoman more than the coffee table. Have a great week! Jane

  2. Vel I love how the tole lamp looks in your home that you won from my giveaway from The Enchanted Home!! Perfection!! Thank you so much for the shout out!

  4. Oh boy pretty girl...that blue and white collection is growing by the minute!!! Gorgeous, I love it!
    All your vignettes are lovely, specially the artwork in the piano, also in B&W.
    B&W is great for any season.
    Have a fun week sweetie.

  5. Congratulations on winning the lamp--it looks great in your living room! Can't wait to see the ottoman you picked!

  6. It all looks so fresh and summery! Love those cricket boxes too!

  7. I love your summer colors, Vel. Blue and yellow is such great combo. Your home is beautiful! Congrats on winning the lamp. It's adorable! ...Christine

  8. Vel, your room is beautiful!! I just love the way you layer items and colors...which is something I really need to work on. That lamp is amazing.

  9. Very elegant living room. Great mix of classic, ethnic and modern.

  10. Your blues, greens and yellows are just beautiful together and are so very fresh -- perfect for summer. Your home always looks so lovely, Vel!

  11. Such a pretty summer room, Vel! Congratulations on your win, just lovely!

  12. Looking so gorgeous, fresh and summery! I think blue and white is timeless! Congrats on your win - what a lucky girl :)
    Cheers from Maine!

  13. Vel,
    Your blue and white additions within your living room is gorgeous!!!
    I am quite smitten with the gray chairs and yellow pillows, too!!!
    The vignette atop the piano is nicely done, dear one!!!
    Thank you for inviting us into your lovely home!!!

  14. As always, everything is just beautiful!!! Love those chairs! XO

  15. Your touches of blue and white are lovely. The green leaves of the plants add wonderful punches of color and that comfortable feel to your living room. Your room is lovely, your sofa is the style I am looking for. The low tract arms and squared off loose cushions are a great look for this room. What is the name of the wall color, it looks very similar to SW's Kilim Beige (I have in my living room).

  16. Love, love the Summer look of your living room. The blue and yellow together looks beautiful! xxx Maria

  17. All looks perfect for summer. Your collection of brass cricket boxes is great.

  18. Vel I love your pretty summer color scheme and how you have the ability to switch things up in your living room thanks to that neutral palette! The blue floral pillows are gorgeous - would you mind sharing your source?? Also your new lamp is lovely - how to fun to win that!

  19. It's gorgeous Vel, and the sunny pops of yellow are perfection! You know I share your love for blue and white and all grouped together to make a pretty statement is one of my favorites! Lovey job, sweet friend!
