Hey! What’s Up? Hello…
As promised, today is the remaining “finished” rooms of my home. For me, summertime means lots of time out of the house. So when we do spend time at home, it’s an escape, a place to recharge and relax. What does summertime mean in your home? Do you decorate differently for the summer months? Or do you simply use the spaces differently?
That’s the fun part of the Blogger Stylin’ Home Tours hosted by Lindsay, the owner, editor and content creator behind The White BUffalo Styling Co. Today and every day this week, you’ll see how some of the best of the best decorate and live in their homes for summer. And I have a spot amongst them, it’s crazy! If by some chance you don’t already know Lindsay, she is also sharing her tour today so make sure you follow through the loop at the end of this post to catch all of the tours today.
Chances are, you’ve already started the loop and you’re here from Jennifer’s blog, Dimples and Tangles. Isn’t her style just the perfect blend of eclectic and glam? I loved her tour! Thanks for making this stop on the line up of tours today. If we haven’t met yet, I’m Corinna and I’m passionate about creating spaces meant for living in. It means my spaces may look a little different than others you’ll see online. And it may be taboo to let the kid’s toys hang out, but this is my real life and you’re welcome to be just as comfortable here as we are. Grab your tea, coffee, water or other beverage of choice and let’s tour!
Walking into my home, you’ll land right in our living room. When we first moved into this house, it was in my early days on discovering Pinterest and blogs and I tried to emulate what I saw in those spaces I pinned. But, at the end of the day it wasn’t me. This is how I’ve naturally decorated and lived my whole life. It’s a little boho, a little cozy, and a lot laid back.
I love to have company so we have lots of seating.
But we also watch a lot of TV, so I’ve worked the room to make TV watching comfortable.
I’m a passionate plant caregiver. I’m not the greatest at caring for plants, but I love it so much I keep on at it anyways.
I’m also a passionate textile collector. Pillows and interesting scarves are my weakness.
The rug is from Target. I get questions about it all the time and it’s right there at everyone’s favorite store 😉
Most of the furniture in my house is second hand. The instant gathered look second hand furniture gives a space gives me life.
Because this is our primary living space (and I say living in many more ways than just the title of the room), we also have a lot of my son’s toys in this space. So you’ll see his practice vacuum and lots of baskets and furniture dedicated to their storage.
Off this room is the hallway that leads to the 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and 3 closets this house has. I would love to have you tour the hallway and my bedroom. You can catch those spaces in this separate eclectic home tour.
The other opening off the living room leads to the kitchen and that connects to the dining room. We’ll bypass the kitchen this time, but let’s tour the dining room next!
This is the first true glimpse of the dining room I’ve shared. I wanted to share an extra special look for those of you who are new.
I just recently put up a faux wainscotting around the room. It’s the first phase of 3 to get the trim in this room to match the mission/craftsman style I covet so much. In the space above the trim, there will be a jungalicious wallpaper.
The light is another new addition. It has a very cool oil slick look to it that compliments the pops of turquoise, pink and purple in this space. I love color and I especially love color in unique pops.
I decided to use a fan back peacock chair on one side for something different. Every guest I’ve had loves it and I feel like a queen when I sit in it, so this decision is still a win for now.
And finally, the pièce de ré·sis·tance is this blue fireplace mantle my husband and I just got up yesterday afternoon!
I’ve been envisioning this for a long time and it’s rewarding seeing the vision come to fruition. Your home should make you happy and work for the way you live. And this makes me happy and gives me a place to display pretty things out of reach of a 4 year old.
And that’s my home. At least, what’s pretty enough to share on the internet. Your next stop is the beautiful Claire Brody. I promise, you don’t want to miss the talent this lady is about to show you.
Check back everyday this week:
