Summer Home Tour

Happy Monday!

I’d like to welcome you to my Summer Home Tour!

This year I have completely embraced the beachy/nautical theme. Even though I live in Indiana… beside a cornfield. One can dream, right?

You have already gotten a glimpse of a few of my summer-themed projects. And you know I’m a fan of color 🙂  So now I’m thrilled to show you how everything came together!

Welcome to the Purple Palace Summer Home Tour!

DIY Summer Wreath

What says “welcome to my home” better in the summer time than a beachy-themed wreath?

This year I created my own envelope throw pillow covers. I just love the summery vibe they bring to my sofa!

I used some of the leftover pillow fabric to create these summer-themed silhouettes.

And this little clam shell is probably going to go down in the history books as one of my all time favorite Goodwill purchases. I can’t get enough of it!

I had the best time updating my patio furniture this year!

Patio Chair Update

And to think the inspiration for this make-over came from a similar chair that I saw at Target.

Don’t you just love the bright, cheery feeling summer brings!?

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my colorful Summer Home Tour 🙂

    Where did you get that adorable mermaid?

    • I found it at Gordmans, Cia. Then I sprayed painted it yellow. I’ve also seen it in gift shops where they sell nautical/ocean themed pieces. 🙂
