Summer Style in the Living Room

While most bloggers are already talking about Fall decor...this girl is still deeply enjoying SUMMER!! Why are the seasons rushed??? It's not FALL until September 21st people...until then I will be thinking and living SUMMER!

I badly needed to do some dusting around here, since we've spent the better part of the last month working outside on the pool area.  Now that it's complete, I really needed to pay some attention to the inside of my home.

Today's project was cleaning the built-ins in the living room.

Here's what they looked like  a few months back.

And here's what they look like now...

A calmer, more subdued look.

Less cluttered, less color...more texture.

More neutrals with just a touch of gold and green.

I'm loving the look and the simplicity of it.  To me, it screams summer...

...where things are a little more laid back and easy.

The sun is bright here today and it's a little cooler and less humid.  I've got the windows open and the radio cranked up, enjoying the great summer breezes.

Hope you enjoyed a look around our living room today.  McG and I are getting outside today to celebrate with family and friends.  Thanks for stopping by!
