Hey y’all…I am so excited that Summer is here! While I must admit I really don’t care for the heat and humidity there is so much more that I do love about Summertime. Get togethers, cookouts, dinner parties, boating on the lake, swimming in the pool, impromptu porch parties and so much more.

I’ve been very busy updating the house since we moved in a few short weeks ago. It has been a lot of work but I have loved every minute of it. I’m excited to share my Summer Lake House Tour with you. You won’t get to see the entire house yet but there is definitely enough here today to show you what I’ve been up to. I warn you – this post is definitely photo heavy. A big thank you to our sweet friend Meg of Green With Decor for inviting us to share our homes. Last week I showed you the outside of my home with my Summer Patio Tour.

So, come on in and take a look around…

Summer Patio Garden Tour

The entryway is right inside the front door. I painted this dresser over 8 years ago and decided that I love the way it looks here. Plus, as an added bonus it offers extra storage that we desperately need now that we have downsized.



Summer Home Tour - Entry Way. Vintage Dresser

I love typography…I created this art and printed it on vintage book pages. It took just 2 minutes to make! You can see how I did that with this post HERE.

Summer Home Tour - Entry way. Vintage blue books and a framed quote printed on vintage book pages.

If you have been reading our blog for awhile, you know that Jenn and I love to decorate with vintage books. I have several navy blue books and they are some of my favorites now.

Summer Home Tour. Love to use vintage books in vignettes.

The vintage brass clips are the beginnings of a new collection. I would really love to add the whale to the group 🙂

These french doors lead to our sunroom. This room is one of my most favorite in the house. We recently painted it in Benjamin Moore’s Hale Navy and it looks beautiful!


The room is flooded with sunshine all day long. The sunroom is wrapped with windows and a Palladian window.


I love the combination of blue and white. The room is so comfortable and inviting. The coffee table is actually a handmade tool box from 1920.


I love that the owner wrote this inscription inside.


Other than the sofa and the coffee table, I painted all of the other furniture in the room – both side tables and the two chairs.












I made the lake picket sign a couple of years ago. You can read that post HERE.







Y’all know I’m obsessed with feathers 🙂 I also have a soft spot for vintage cameras.


This wooden bowl is so rustically perfect. I added a few moss balls, rattan balls and objects found in nature.


The living room is also bathed in light. The mantel is a great focal point in the corner.

This painting is from our former guest room in the old house.


All of these items were found on one beach trip excursion…


…the antique nautical pulley was a $5 antique shop purchase in St. Augustine Beach.




This fabulous canoe was a birthday gift given to me several weeks ago. It became the inspiration piece for the new color scheme and decor for the house.


Cobalt blue glass is so pretty! I just love the bright blue.


All of these bottles are vintage – like this old Bromo Seltzer bottle.


Whew…that was a lot of pictures. Thank you for visiting my Summer Lake House Tour – so glad you stopped by. I will be sharing more and more with you in the coming weeks.

Jenn will be sharing part of her home tomorrow so you won’t want to miss it.
