50 DecorBook Ideas : 32. Quick Summer Update

posted on

Don't you love the month of August?  No holidays.  No expectations.  That got me thinking.  Why not celebrate August like we're living in a beach house?  And, since I was missing my blue&white stuff, yesterday was the day to "go to the beach."  Let's see what happened.
Here's the view from sunroom into living room.  That's a blue and white Ikat rug (from Target) on the sofa arm.  All the "decorating" was bringing stuff up from the basement with one exception.  I forgot I had a fabric remnant (from Joann's - a good deal if I could work around the oil spots) and decided it was now or never to make 2 pillow covers.  I also cut some white burlap, fringed the edges and put in a table top tray (see top photo). The rest was just fluffing pillows and arranging some summery stuff.   
Have to admit that Saturday did get off to a rocky start as my sewing machine had a melt down.  It turned out it was me - I had pressed something on the screen that locked it up.  
All finished - 26" squares.
Summer fireplace screen (from Ross Stores, originally painted yellow with a garden scene) and shells on the mantel.
Mantel close up.  Love to put out summery postcards from friends.
Living room to entry way.  Those blue pillows were originally a Target shower curtain.
Guest bath counter top.  
Entry table - glass balls under the table.
Old necklaces on my friend in the entry way.  That headpiece is my new $20 shell necklace from TJ Maxx.  
Entry way bench topped with a traditional Moroccan towel (Thanks, Ruthie!)
Even Jimmy is decked out in blue.  Enjoy your rooms this August!
