Welcome to my summer house tour part 2. If you want to see part 1 you can check that out here. I really tried to pull my colors together and go for that coastal vibe. I used various shades of blue to complete the look. The beach is one of my favorite places and I had a lot of beachy decor that I thought would go well with my existing pieces. This summer tablescape can be used for outdoor entertaining or a beautiful coastal theme dinner party.

I love these themed dishes that I purchased a year ago from Pier 1. Aren’t the little fish shaped bread plates just the cutest? It’s fun to have some themed dishes to spice up your white set.
I always start with my white casual set of Emma dishes from Pottery Barn and decorate my table from there.
These blue candlesticks and the centerpiece were items I found on clearance at Pier 1 a couple of years ago. I love finding awesome pieces on clearance.
I found this shell set from At Home. They also have the best scent. It makes the whole kitchen smell like fresh linen.
I found The blue tinted glass jug, the blue vase, and the blue coral at Home Goods. They were such great finds. Things fly off the shelves at Home Goods so you have to purchase it when you find what you want.
I tried to pull together accessories with different shades of blue that have a natural, beachy vibe. If you think you’ve seen that driftwood garland before you have. I used it on a client’s Christmas tree last year. I did a coastal theme in a Virginia Beach office and used it as a garland. It was that natural piece I needed to bring the final details together. It’s one of my favorite trees so If you didn’t get a chance to see it you can check it out here.
If you are in the Hampton roads area and are looking for a photographer for senior sessions or family portraits I use Jason Williams at Elite Photography. He has been doing our photos for the last 6 years.
I hope you enjoyed both of my summer tours. Later in the month I will be revealing my outdoor summer kitchen and fire pit. It is the best upgrade we have done to our house. We are definitely more casual entertainers. We enjoy throwing parties and entertaining around our pool. I think that is what home decor is all about. Making your home a place you want to be at and entertain others there as well.
