Indigo Blue Summer Home Tour

Adding my favorite hues to my home decor has made me fall in love with my house in a brand new way. I hope you enjoy this Indigo Blue Summer Home Tour as much as I do!

Remember those times when you were so excited for a certain day? Like a vacation? Or the prom? Maybe that first date…Or counting down the days until the first day of summer?

Well, that day is today for me and I am over-the-moon excited to be joining some amazing Rock Star bloggers as we share snippets of our homes all gussied up for summer.

So if you’re new to Noting Grace, hello and welcome! Let me take a quick second to introduce myself. My name is Jen and I love to take old items from wretched discards to redeemed treasures – thus the name Noting Grace. Noticing grace in the cast off items and loving them back to life, like our Almost Farmhouse. After, moving back to Tennessee from seven years in Vegas, we have spent the last four years making over our dated fixer and I’m so glad you are here.

Grab a cuppa and make yourself at home while I show you around.

Our dog, Ollie must have overheard me talk about this tour and made sure to be in lots of photos. He’s so excited to wag his tail and be the honorary tour guide for you.

But before we get into the nitty gritty, let me send out a huge thank you to Gina from The Shabby Creek Cottage for putting this tour together and for inviting me into the fold. I’m so honored to be included and cannot wait to see what the other ladies share today.

Our Family Room

When you enter our home, you are immediately greeted with our most recent DIYs, our Glass Door Insert and Staircase Makeover.

So if you would have been at my door a year ago, you would have seen neutral decor which was exactly what we needed as we transitioned from our Vegas home. But since I wanted to create a home filled with comfort, love and intention, it was time to add my favorite color – blue.

And I’m amazed at how much it has brought joy to my heart.

Since I love to surround myself with family treasures, I incorporate them in my decor.

Like this plantation desk from my husband’s side and a printer’s tray passed on to me from my momma.

Our couches are our newest decor addition. But I have to confess that these are not my dream couches. I would prefer french settees with all the curves that would make you swoon. But if you’ve been following along on our son’s teen room redo, then you know that we have really tall boys.

And really tall boys don’t fit particularly well on girly, curvy settees -and as if my house of testosterone even wants to sit on those girly, curvy settees. So I’m choosing function over form and it makes my heart happy when we can all sit as a family together.

My drop cloth covered bergere chair and ottoman fulfill that girly, curvy look I wanted. So this is my chair where I start my day with my cup of coffee and devotion. Isn’t that woven pillow gorgeous?! I just purchased that at TJ Maxx and love how it looks in this room.

To update this little corner, I did a quick DIY for this tour and painted my green chicken coop cubbies a fun indigo blue.

I used milk paint and lightly distressed it to be mottled and weathered with hints of the original green coming through.

Since everyone wonders what to put on the TV wall to take away from the black rectangular hole that dominates the space, I had an idea.

So my solution was to frame our TV with my tobacco baskets I found for a steal. A few faux lemon wreaths from Hobby Lobby finish off the look.

And I just love how it looks! I must confess that this Kentucky girl is often staring at those baskets instead of the program we’re watching!

Our Dining Room

So it was these French Doors into our Dining Room that made me fall in love with this house.

And this is the room where I first added the indigo blue last year.

When I painted my Knotty Pine Hutch blue, that’s what began my love for bringing this color into my home.

Vintage blue plates and tarnished silver adorn the hutch and elicit a smile every single time I glance at them.

My ticking stripe wreath hangs on our DIY Barn Door.

This room used to be neutral as well.

But a quick switcharoo of curtains, artwork and decor items updated my master bedroom with my favorite color.

Earlier I dug through the garage and found a side table to paint. I love how it turned out!

A few years ago, I built this Blanket Ladder from scrap wood. I repurposed it into a towel rack for our bathroom. It pairs so nicely with our barn door.

  13. Gorgeous, I love it! I just ordered a new rug on Thursday, but if that stunning blue one comes with that lovable fur baby? I am cancelling my order and getting that one. πŸ™‚

  14. Came over from Linda’s. What a gorgeous home you have created. I adore your front staircase, and looking through the gorgeous glass doors into your dining room. A sweet pup always steals my heart too πŸ˜‰

  15. Thanks so much Emily! It was the chandelier that convinced me to buy this fixer upper – well that and the french doors. Your kind words just made my day!

  16. Girl,

    I think we are decor kindred spirits! ha! Loved all the blues and that chandelier in your dining room! My jaw hit the floor! I’ve been trying to find one like that for months! Maybe one of these days I’ll get my hands on one of those! Your home is just beautiful!

  17. Thank you so much Amber – and I love sharing through linky parties! Thanks for the invite!

    And how awesome is that about our similar backgrounds? I grew up in Northern Kentucky but left to go to college here in Nashville, and then was a gypsy for about 10 years pursuing our music. It feels good to be back here in Tennessee where it all began for us!

  18. Jen this is stunning! I would love for you to come over and link up this post at Thursday Favorite Things today so I can feature you next week! Just leave me a comment with the number of your link up. Also, for some reason I never caught that you are a musician too! I have taught music for over 20 years, but decorating and all things home is my passion as well. Due to some health issues I only teach from home now, but that has given me a chance to pursue my blogging dreams.

    Hope to see you at Thursday Favorite Things!
