Summer Living Room and continuing the pillow hoard

Now that I have shared our bathroom, I can leave the door to the bathroom open and show you our summer living space. I put the bright and colourful pillows away and brought in the european neutrals of ticking and stripes.

the green velvet chair got one of my black grainsack pillows but i am super excited about the new to me vintage rug i scooped at a fair for 40 bucks. yup 40 bucks, almost fell over when the lady said that.

the sofas and chair pillows are so calming right now. it is a fantastic retreat from the spring brights and before the fall colours. the large hemp pillows are made from antique linen sheet rolls, the white pillow on the left is an old one from ikea, the corner pillows are my favourite charcoal and grey ticking i use everywhere i can, pottery barn euro white sham and antique indigo. the small lumbar on the right side is the same black and linen ticking from the patio and the large black and linen stripe is a fabric by ralph lauren

our summer mantel. i decided to walk the brass miss america trophy into the house and have her be friends with the tigers when she was still hanging around after the show


Thanks for stopping by today.

I am in the process of putting together a new house tour for next week to update the one from last year as a lot has changed including my camera equipment. I am excited to share our entire space with you again.
