Welcome to the Summer Home Tour.
A big thank you to Marty at A Stroll Thru Life
for inviting me to join some very
talented blogging pals for the tour.
If you arrived here from Driven By Décor ….welcome! Don’t you just love Kris’s beautiful dining room?
We moved into our house approximately one year ago and it is still a work in process. Slowly we are wiping away the builder grade features and making this “our home”
Please come in and I’ll show you around
Our home is somewhat unique as you enter through the screened courtyard and the house is built around it. The front door is at the other end of the courtyard.
There is a separate guest suite located right behind the patio table.
When we moved in there was only the palm tree and one plant in the courtyard. It’s been hit or miss finding plants that will take the extreme heat. The day I took these pictures it was 94 degrees!
It cooled down enough after a little rain shower to have dinner in the courtyard.
The courtyard is one of the most used “rooms” in our home. We eat many of our meals here and it is a great place to entertain.
Please come inside where it is cool.
Step into our living room.
The sofa pillows are a new addition to the room. The coral pillow is from Bealls and the others I purchased from Michaels.
Did you guess my favorite color is blue?
Our dining room remodel was just completed a couple of weeks ago. A wall was removed, new flooring, paint, chandelier and molding added. You can see more of the dining room and the”before” pictures here
The rug is a dark cobalt blue and matches the curtains. This is the third rug I tried and I think this one is a keeper.
Eat-in Kitchen area
We love our salt water pool….no chemicals and very little upkeep! On these hot Florida days it gets lots of use. It is solar heated so actually we use it year round.
You can tour more of our home HERE
I hope you enjoyed the tour of our home and don’t forget to visit the other 29 bloggers participating in the Summer Home Tour.
A special thank you to Marty
for inviting me to participate with such a talented group of ladies.
