My Summer Home Tour

These summer home tour decorating ideas will have you making your own home a cozy place to be in summer.

Love this summer home tour - it's bright, fun, eclectic and gorgeous!


The days are longer, warmer, brighter and just all around happier.

Plus I love a good bomb pop from the freezer (and an ice cold margarita).

It’s also the perfect excuse to decorate my house, so without further ado, my summer home tour …

Love the wall rack used as a plate rack on the kitchen wall

It’s a bottle drying rack but I don’t like being told what to do so I display plates on mine.

Love that huge numbered pantry wall in this gorgeous white kitchen

There’s nothing I like better than a buttered baguette but this bread box holds my dog’s treats.

A couple of vintage Julia Child cookbooks are waiting patiently for me to whip up a pot of boeuf bourguignon.

Love this kitchen - the old step stool with the bread box - such charming touches

I’m loving the white on white so I filled up my open shelves with HomeGoods finds.

I love this mix of open kitchen shelves with closed cabinets and she has the best displays

I went a little crazy with these cute mugs from HomeGoods in my favorite industrial tray.

Love everything about this white kitchen - the marble herringbone tile, the red stove, the wine cellar sign ...

The trophy goes to me for being a mediocre cook!

If you’re going to cook, you might as well have fun utensils like these from HomeGoods.

Love the huge tray on this red ottoman - perfect for display

I have a small tray obsession – perfect on an ottoman.

Love this bright and cheery family room, the tray on the ottoman and that gorgeous plant

I also have a pillow addiction and always find the best selection like these from HomeGoods.

I went a little crazy at Ikea and love the way this philodendron brings life to a corner of my family room.

Love this breakfast nook/family room combo

Let’s talk about the elephant in the room.  That cute little white elephant from HomeGoods holds our phones while they charge.

  1. love the Monograms on reclaimed wood. What really caught my eye was the music notes and words to” you are my sunshine”Thats the song I sing to my senior adopted horses every morning when I feed them. I lost my 25 year old American Paint Mare on May29 unexpectedly. I love her so much, it broke my heart ..Her 2 pasture mates are still sad to, but I continue to sing to them so we feel better.I adopted them from a rescue 4 yearsago and they changed my lifeforever. They were neglected ,abused and malnourished. I was determind to make whatever time they have left filled with love,good food and hay and kindness and trust. I have a special place in my tack room I could put the song if I win, right over the little door that opens into their stalls so I can see them and give them a sweet treat.

  2. Oh Kelly what can I say other than your home tour is eye candy for the soul….your interiors are fun, just like you. Love it when someone decorates and fills their home with the things they love and create spaces that are a true showstopper. I feel as though your home is like Happy Hour all day long. Enjoyed your Summer Home!

  3. Hey, you don’t need to bribe me with Vodka to get me to take the tour Kelly, but if you are wandering around with the drinks tray anyway, pass me a glass! I love that your home always oozes vintage charm and a clear passion for your amazing collections. Your style is fun and sassy… and very energising. And I love that you don’t follow rules Such a great home tour. Pinning and sharing

      1. I have a couple of printed on glasses (a pirate scene and a circus scene) that I will put in the DW but they aren’t frosted. I don’t know if a frosted glass would survive.

  4. Hey, Kelly, your house always looks great! I think I love your kitchen the best, well except for your front porch, which I blatantly copied on my house. You do such a great job displaying your treasures. Enjoy the summer with your girls!!

  5. Love,love,love your house tour, your dining room is fabulous,
    Can you tell me what the boxes are in the dining room that hold the wine, I am loving those.

  6. Your style is one of a kind and your home reflects that…what an amazing tour! Thank you for joining our Open House…relax and enjoy the rest of the summer!

  7. Your home is always so warm and inviting, no matter the season. It makes me want to visit, sit and chat awhile! Love what you do Kelly! I wish I could find such treasures. Seems I’m always a little late, or in the right spot at the wrong time. Hey, a girl will keep on trying. : )

  8. Kelly, it’s always a treat to tour your old home that you have lovingly decorated. You are the best at incorporating vintage finds into your decor. Those flamingo sheets are just too darn cute!

  9. Kelly your home from top to bottom is truly unique and such a reflection of you and your family. There is so much to look at and enjoy and I am sure everything has a story. That’s what I love! I enjoyed your tour so much.

  10. I found your link on Instagram…. What a treat it was to peek into your charming home. You have inspired me to recreate some of my spaces at home! Cheers! Bhome user name leann

  11. Stunning eclectic!

    The past means a lot to you. You embrace control and order but secretly you are a hippy at heart. You have a multifaceted personality that – under the stricter appearance – is anything but boring. You are also very, very playful.
    This is what your house tells me about you. How wrong did I get it? 🙂

  12. Love your home and your style, I’ve been following you on Instagram for a while now. I LOVE the kitchen towel with baskets of fruit, where did that come from, please? And, your aqua metal breadbox on the counter is adorable, I’ve been to the nearest Home Goods (an hour away) a couple of times, but they don’t have it, so sad…

    Last, I’m guessing you’re from the Cape Cod/Nantucket area? I see a lot of influences from there, and am guessing. We just came back from a vacation there yesterday. I still have Newport Beach sand in my shoes, and a stack of shells picked up on the Cape Cod seaway. It was my favorite part of our entire New England vacation – such a great place to unwind!!

    1. Thanks Jennifer! The dish towel is from HomeGoods and so is the aqua box on my kitchen counter. I’m actually from NJ – a friend gave me those vintage state glasses. I did take a vacation last summer in Cape Cod and loved it and I love Newport too! I need to go back soon!

  13. I absolutely love your home! It just is so creative and inviting and I just love how you’ve used so many vintage things. Unfortunately bHome isn’t available for android yet so I don’t have a user name — I hope that doesn’t exclude me from the give-away!

  14. I love your style,you have a wonderfully warm inviting home and that is exactly your personality.

  15. Enjoyed your new house tour; always like to see what you are up to.
    Especially interested in the love cup utensils holder on your stove…does it say Trenton,NJ?
    I am a Jersey Girl and live right outside of Trenton in Lawrenceville NJ

    Rgb49 or Coramae635, not sure which I use on bhome

      1. OMG I live about a mile and a half from Rider. I attended Rider when it was Rider College (class of 1971 – tells you how old I am)

        Thanks for the reply. Again I love your style and the blog

  16. Wow, you have so many awesome accessories and such creative ways to display them 🙂 Love the hydrangeas and the wood monogram and the white ceramic whale. But the one piece I love most of all is your gorgeous blue float! It still makes me sad that I missed out on the two big floats I wanted to buy in South Carolina, but the stupid store never opened!

  17. Kelly, your home is as unique as you! I love your eclectic, fun style, and I am crushing on those wine cubbies in your dining room. What a great addition! And did i spy some little Boston bull terrier salt and pepper shakers in your kitchen???

  18. I love every single detail in your beautiful home friend!!! I’m always dying over your collections, but for real those hedge hog measuring cups! Oh my word – LOVE!!! XO

  19. What so many pictures of such a beautiful are so talented..thanks for having me by today

  20. Love it all Kelly & how you find such clever ways to repurpose things – like the crystal ice bucket paper towel holder! Happy Summer my Friend

  21. Beautiful home! Very inspirational! But, how about a giveaway opportunity for non-smartphone users? 😉

  22. I love the drying rack in your dining room! The link doesn’t work and I was really wanting to know where you got it. Thanks!

  23. EEEKK!! Oh, how I love your style, Kelly. You make vintage so chic. Sorry it took me so long to get ‘here’ ~ I think it would have been faster if I had walked.

    I hope you’re having a wonderful summer ~ I’m so happy to have been a part of this bHome tour with you.

    hugs, mb

  24. i love every single relaxed and beautiful summery touch you’ve added to your gorgeous home Kelly! So fun to be a part of this home tour with you- happy summer! Xo Heather

  25. Hi Kelly,
    I am totally drooling over your vintage state glasses! I have lived my whole life in MA and would LOVE to score those glasses! Beautiful pics! I love everything!

  26. Love all of your pictures, Kelly. Can you give me some information about the red and khaki chair shown in the picture with the white tub tray? Thanks you!

  27. Love your home, and the kitchen is my favorite by the way. So beautiful. Especially the triple decker industrial circle display on the counter. Where can that be ordered?
