  5. You summer decor for your home looks so fresh and elegant, Kate! Love that blue/green pillow… did you have a link for that one? I didn’t see it! And that crab is amazing! I’ve never seen anything like that! And I agree that candles/scents are great for summer! Even a melter is a wonderful, no-flame choice! So fun touring with you! Pinned!

    1. Thanks Julie! The crab was a Homegoods find and the pillow is from Dillard’s from their Mrs. Southern Social line I absolutely love. I’m planning to add a link to the post. And great idea about the melter…should have included that tip. Happy summer!

  7. You have a gorgeous home and what a treat to see how it looks with your summer accents. I especially love the green pillows on the neutral sofa. Stunning!

    1. Thanks Michelle! I’m surprised how much I like the color when I got them from Amazon. They may stay on the sofa for a few seasons.

  8. Your home is lovely. I love all your pillows, colors and those textures. Everything looks comfortable, coastal, elegant yet cozy. Hope you enjoy your summer. Glad to hop with you again.

  9. Your home is one of my absolute favorites. I LOVE those mini blue and white elephants on the coffee table. I have collected blue and white for almost 40 years now, I have larger blue and white elephants on our hearth. Where did you get the blue and green crewel pillow? It is gorgeous. Thanks for the tour, I also love your kitchen with the brick and copper. I had a faux brick backsplash in our second home and absolutely loved it. Have a wonderful weekend!!

    1. Thanks so much for the sweet comments Pinky! The little elephants were my mother in laws and she was a huge blue and white fan. The pillow I got at Dillard’s…I need to add that link to the post. And I always wanted a kitchen with a brick backsplash…my husband was not sure about it but we are both so glad we went with it. Enjoy your summer!

  10. You have so many wonderful inspirations. I love the pops of green and blue. Also, the coastal touches for the summer are lovely.

    1. Thanks Kelly! I’ve enjoyed seeing everyone’s version of green and blue too…it seems to be a popular summer color combination even though you do it beautifully all of the time! And I am the one that is SO thankful to be on the tour. THANK YOU again and am looking forward to hopefully hopping with you again in the fall!!

  15. Kate, your home is gorgeous!! I can always tell a Texas-style home… all I think about up here in freezing New England is just how much it would cost me to heat it in the winter!! Have a great day!

    1. Thank you! And it would probably cost the same to heat it up there as it does to air condition it in the summer here, lol. Have a wonderful summer!!

  16. All so beautiful! Love your tips. The green and blue pillows are amazing! I’m also swooning over your porch table! Love the idea of adding Summer Vacation photos! Always fun to hop with you!

    1. Thank you Kristin! I wanted that dining table for my shallow patio for so long because it is extra long but not very wide and the day I scored it on FBMP I did a happy dance!!
