Happy Monday, dear readers! I hope your week is off to a great start. Today, I want to invite you inside where it is nice and cool for a summer living room tour. Please join me for a glass of iced tea and a nice visit as we celebrate summer.
As you know, I have a terrible addiction to pretty blue and white pieces. A few more blue and white treasures have found their home in my living room.
A new coffee table vignette was in order for the summer season. White tulips placed in a blue and white tulipiere and trinkets arranged on a gold mirrored tray create a fresh look. The lamps on the sofa table got an update with new lamp shades from Ballard Designs.
Below is a view of the living room looking toward the sitting room.
Additional blue and white pieces are grouped together on the pastry table. I think when collections are assembled together, they create an impressive and more impactful look. The chinoiserie lamp also received an update with a new scalloped shade from Ballard Designs as well.
The Jersey cow lamp below is a favorite of mine. I come from a long line of cattle ranchers and dairy farmers. Accompanying the lamp are hydrangeas from my garden placed in a willow vase. We had an early freeze last fall so; this year I haven’t had many blooms. However, the blooms I have been fortunate enough to receive have been enjoyed.
The view below looks toward the back of the house. Because we are high on a ridge and surrounded by trees, I often feel like I am in a tree house.
The blue and white lamp sits on a recent French antique piece that I picked up at an auction. I adore its shape, brass accents, and painted scenes.
If you look closely, you may spy Miss Ruby sitting in the wingback chair in front of the fireplace. She is my faithful companion, and I love her dearly! She loves cuddles and kisses and thinks she is a human. I may be to blame for that though, because I spoil her rotten!
Thank you for your visits and kindness, dear friends. I hope that you have a most joyous and blessed day!
