379th Insire Me Tuesday

Welcome, so glad you stopped by.  Last week Inspire Me Tuesday was replaced with our 2017 Summer Home Tours.  This is where 30 fabulous bloggers open their homes for you to view their beautiful summer decor.  6 homes each day, so it was a wonderful week filled with tons of ideas and inspiration.  Here is a small recap.

2017 Summer Home Tour

Monday – June 12

A Stroll Thru Life - Marty (me) Since moving in 6 months ago, our "Builder Basic" has gone through quite a few changes.

Pink Peppermint Design - Tammy's home is always fresh and stylish with a fun touch of whimsy too.

Cuckoo4Design - Julia mixes color and pattern with her signature black and white like a pro.

Nesting With Grace - Brooke's style is casual chic with tons of detail and always a fresh take on her decor. 

Life on Virginia Street - Sarah's home is modern with a casual eclectic touch.  She takes a soft color pallet and refines it with texture and a little touch of the unexpected.

Decor To Adore - Laura treats her outdoors just as special as indoors.  Her mix of pattern, color and texture is always inspiring.

Tuesday – June 13

Thrifty and Chic - Alicia creates the most beautiful rooms with her soft color pallet and she is the queen of diy.

21 Rosemary Lane -Barbara always pays attention to every detail whether it's indoors or out.  

Decorating Delirium - Jennifer puts chic with a capital
C" into her decor.

The Chronicles of Home - Jennifer mixes pastel, bold and whimsy to create the most interesting rooms.

Hymns & Verses - Doreen takes "Farmhouse" to the next level with her unique personal style.

My Sweet Savannah - Melaine's style is what I call "Quiet Elegance".  Always stunning.

Wednesday – June 14

 Life Love Larson - Andrea's home always reflects her gracious hostess personality.  

Making Home Base - Chelsea is a military wife that has learned to decorate on a tiny budget that always looks like a million.

Inspiration For Moms - Laura's attention to detail means every area inside and out are always amazing.

Duke Manor Farms - Laura mixes modern and tradition with such a keen eye for keeping her spaces up to date.  Her outdoors is amazing too.  I love her new pool.

ZDesign At Home – Bree's keen eye for style makes her home always magazine worthy.  Tons of inspiration. 

Our Fifth House - Carmel loves to be outdoors, so her porches are always designed with the same perfection that she uses inside.  

Thursday – June 15

Life & Home @ 2102 - Vel always creates the most interesting spaces with her updated oriental style.

It All Started With Paint -Linda's color sense is fabulous.  She knows just when to go bold and dark and oh so gorgeous.

Simple Stylings - Summer proves that soft and neutral is never boring.

11 Magnolia Lane - Christy moves often being a military family.  She just recently downsized to 1/2 her previous home.  I love how she creates the most wonderful rooms no matter what size.

Remodelando La Casa - Christina can diy just about anything and definitely put the "S" in style.

Southern Hospitality - Rhoda's take on traditional is always fresh and up to date.  Love her signature blue and green.

Fri – June 16

Refresh Restyle - Debbie has designed an updated "Farmhouse" look for her new home and you should see her outdoor living area.

Far Above Rubies - Anita cherishes and displays family heirlooms in such a delightful way.  Nothing "granny" looking about her home.

Our Southern Home - Christy's home is so welcoming inside and outside.  She adds her special touch to every area of her home.

Simple Details - Pam always inspires me with how she mixes all her eclectic finds to create such interesting and awesome rooms.

Haneens Haven -Haneen is the master of color and pattern.  You will definitely be drooling over her combinations. 

Common Ground – Debra has taken old world traditional to such a fresh new level.  Tons of ideas to check out.

If you missed a single one of these tours, you definitely need to go check them out.  Each home was a true delight.

Ok, let's see what you have for this week.
