Hola! This summer has flown by and the kiddos only have one tiny little week left before school starts back up. Poor dears! It was a fun summer though—lots of outings to the local beaches and walks on the nearby trail.
I’m blogging in today from the dining room with some styling to reflect the summer’s nearing end. Oh the agony, the horror! Say it ain’t so!
The top of the china hutch has remained mostly empty for the entire summer, mostly because I didn’t get the chance to mess with it.
I wanted to add something in here that looked super casual to help this space look less formal. So I mixed a beach bag, a vintage chandelier, and some ironstone along with some hot pink blooms from the back garden.
We recently thinned out these hot pink beauties growing in the back garden and they’re thriving now. Who knew? We now have fewer plants, but more blooms. And there are many more to come. I guess it could also be from the weed barrier and nice pine mulch we added. We’re still working on that neverending project.
In the picture above you can see the toile and lace drapes, a recent addition in our family room. I’m still so happy with them, and they add a nice warm color to both spaces.
