Summer Eclectic Home Tour – Tricia’s House

Hi everyone – hope your summer is off to a great start! Sorry for bailing on you this week and not posting but there was a good reason for it. I was getting the house prepped to join in with the hippest group of bloggers for a summer eclectic home tour. A big thanks to Jess from Domicile37 for putting all the fun together. You can find links to all the tours at the bottom of the post.

Summer Eclectic Home Tour

Come on in and let’s get this tour started!

Last summer I painted the door Benjamin Moore Wythe Blue and I’m still loving it. I’ve been searching for something to hang on it and I finally landed on this basket filled with succulents. I’m hoping I can keep them alive for most of the summer!

My main winter’s project was painting all the walls Benjamin Moore Simply White. The house seems so much fresher and brighter. Just a couple more rooms and I’ll have the all white house I’m craving.

The other big project in recent months was my One Room Challenge Boho Chinoiserie Chic bedroom. White, bright and big splashes of color. It’s been a month and I still get a big silly grin on my face every time I walk into my room.

Give me white, blue and pops of color and I’m a happy camper. For this tour I took on a refresh of my sitting room and that’s the same direction I went in here: blue, white, brass and turquoise for the pop of color.

The chairs were my grandmother’s and were desperately in need of reupholstering. I just signed up for the tour last week so there was no way that project was getting done in time. I was flummoxed. What do you do when you don’t have time to shop for new chairs or redo the ones you have? Paint! I used Velvet Finishes in Handsome for this project. Don’t they look great? I’ll have more on that next week.

The Serena & Lily capiz pendant light I got on sale last winter. It’s totally transformed the room and I think of it as my baby.

The gallery wall is always evolving – this mirror’s a new addition I just found at Goodwill. Not bad for $13!

The loveseat also got a facelift going from a bright pink slipcover to a white one. And the walls from yellow to white.

Out is the pink striped ottoman and in is the round wood coffee table.

The dining room got an update too.

I loved the light fixture but that color was not a fit with my new capiz love.

It was time to bring out the Liquid Leaf. This stuff is amazing!

The other big change in the room was the addition of what had been my childhood dresser. Enter Velvet Finishes again for the win – this time in Exotic.

The changes in the family room are more subtle. A new old coffee table and a redone Drexel cane chair.

New coral pillows for the Oly Studio chairs and borrowed Loom Decor ones from my room.

And another Goodwill find turned into a home for succulents.

The breakfast nook got a summer look too.

It just took a new table runner and a fresh bowl of lemons.

Flowers and greenery are all the kitchen needs for a fresh summer look.

  4. Blue lovers unite! There are so many different areas of your home that I love. LOVE the front door planter and really, I’m wondering why I haven’t thought of that. Also, such drastic makeovers with paint/upholstery choices. Love the new looks in the dining room and sitting area. Ok, tell me about those hairy ottomans! I need those in my life asap.

    Beautiful tour!

  9. Oh wow, the white walls are so amazing! I keep toying with the idea of all white in the main areas of house and this might have pushed me over the edge! Loving every room in your tour so much.

    Your bedroom makeover is so killer. And I’ve been wanting to make the switch from gray to white walls in our living room. Simple White looks amazing in your house!

    Love your space! Gorgeous home tour!

    Would you be able to let me know where you got your love seat slip cover? I’ve been trying to find one just like that!!

    • Thanks so much Christa! My mom has a seamstress is South Carolina and she got her to make it for me. The couch was covered in a pink linen slipcover and she was able to use the old cover as a pattern for the new slipcover.
