HOME TOUR // Summer Styling Part Two

| | |

IMG_0684Welcome back to the Easy Summer Styling Blog Tour! As you might have guessed, I had so many photos to share that I decided I needed to break the tour into two parts. If you didn’t catch the home tour yesterday, I basically teamed up with six other majorly talented ladies to bring you the Easy Summer Styling Blog Tour hosted by Kelly from The Tattered Pew.

Yesterday, I shared my dining room, butler’s pantry, kitchen and family dining room (the less formal one). If you missed yesterdays post, you’ll definitely want to check it out along with the six ladies tours which will be linked below!

Now onto part two of the tour!

It’s time we head into my newly redone craft room. If you haven’t seen the “before” then you must click here to see what it used to look like. You won’t believe it! The transformation with white paint was so impactful. I cannot even believe the difference!

My new craft room is where I blog, use my silhouette machine, sew, and basically create all of my make-it-yourself ideas featured on this blog. I found a tall table so I could stand or sit on a tall stool comfortably.


I am really working on a minimalist feel in my craft room and I love this new look!


I bought the table at a flea market and did a make-it-yourself. The table used to be turquoise and looks so much better now. The rug is from Pottery Barn.


Most of my crafts currently involve my sewing machine, embroidery machine or Silhouette machine!

There is a screen door out from my craft room that leads to our back porch.



This covered porch is a perfect spot all year round (one of the advantages of living in Southern California).


The covered area has a fireplace and heaters in the ceiling so it stays very warm in the winter.


The dining table is outside but it has a chandelier above it that hangs from the tree!


We dine out here almost every summer evening!


I set the table with a garden theme. My copper mugs were perfect accents.


And my I love the chalkboard!


This summer already has so many stories!


I can’t wait to show you the rest of our house very soon.

So,  what didn’t I show?

There are a lot of rooms in our house that weren’t included in the summer tour. On the first floor, I didn’t show the entry way, living room and living area in the family room. All of those rooms are in various stages of redecorating and they will be done soon! As you know, it takes time to find the right items and style them to your liking so that it comes together! I am sure they will be featured in photos this fall. Upstairs I was hoping to include our master bedroom. But the fireplace tile was finished while I was in Atlanta and I am still here. (The photos from the tile guy weren’t quite right for my blog-ha!) The boys rooms and workout room will someday be redone but they aren’t even a conversation yet. The third floor will never be shown on this blog. (We have a guest room and bath up there but the main living room is used for storage. My storage. It holds all of the outgoing and incoming furniture and all other décor items that are in-flux.) You know what I mean.

I also have an art studio in the back in our Carriage House. I will share that room and some more of my paintings on my blog soon. In the meantime, you can read a snippet of my life before farmhouse here. Right now I have a lot of paintings in progress that are huge and there is hardly any room to move around. As soon as these are completed and delivered I will give you a tour. I promise! The last room I will feature here someday on the blog is our wine cellar. It’s located in our basement and it has a lot of wine. But it needs a new floor and I have to finish a project on the outside before it is featured here. It’s fun that my home is always a work in progress. And it excites me to be able to reveal more and more aspects to the home that means so much to me. Thanks for coming along on this home tour with me!

  1. Leslie, Your Summer Home Tour did not disappoint!!! Your home is probably my favorite home???? Thank you for inviting us for the tour!!!

    1. Thank you so much, Tina! I’m so glad that you enjoyed it! I had so much fun sharing these photos and taking the photos as well! I think everyone should style their home around a theme for the season because you end up with very different ideas when you have a seasonal theme!
