Today, I am excited to join 30 other bloggers sharing their summer inspiration. This is my Summer Simplicity Home Tour.
In the busyness of summer fun, I crave a calming vibe in my home.
Here’s how I cut back on my home decor to create Summer Simplicity in my home.
Today, I am so excited to be participating in the Blogger’s Best Summer Home Tour 2022 hosted by my sweet friend Kelly from the Tattered Pew.
She always brings such amazing and talented bloggers together and it’s a joy to see all the inspiration everyone shares.
If you are here from Lora Bloomquist’s blog, then welcome to Noting Grace. I am a fellow vintage decor lover. And her cabin style decor made me want to escape to a cabin for a quick vacay!
Summer Simplicity Home Tour

My oldest is home from his first year at college and it’s already been a fun whirlwind having everyone under one roof again.
Since I am finding we are busy and on the go spending time together, when I come home, I want to be welcomed with calm.
So I have pared back on my decor to invoke a come sit down and rest a while feeling.
Recently, I found some wonderful items at Walmart and gave my living room a quick update for not a lot of money.
This old trunk came from my father-in-law and I just love how low profile it is.
Plus, he built a frame with wheels so it’s super easy to move!
Woods and Whites are on the scene in this room with small hints of gray.
I decided to keep my mantel decorated with just a few, neutral items.
I just shared how we rearranged our furniture to create a keeping room.
Since this room is adjacent to our kitchen, this has helped make this room flow all the more.

Keeping with Summer simplicity in my home tour, my kitchen is pretty low-key.
Clear counters (except when the boys pile my sink with dishes!), plain tablescape and open space are key.
I’ve had these woven hyacinth placemats for the past few years and they still are my favorite.
It adds texture without being too busy.
And keeping things simple, I opted to leave silverware off the tablesetting.
Again – the goal is calm summer simplicity.
This old pottery pitcher is a vintage find of mine.
I filled it with faux tulips and love how it adds some whimsy to the space.

My favorite room is right next to our Living Room and Kitchen.
Come and sit a spell in my sunroom.
This room is filled with lots of woods, whites and greenery.
Some are real, but most are faux.
This old dresser is an old DIY project from years ago, but it’s still one of my favorite pieces.
Even with the missing drawer!
The two smaller vases are my latest crafts I’ve completed using baking soda and acrylic paint.
I love the textured look the vases add to the space.
On the other side of the room is where I start my day.
I’m working on being more intentional with my time, creating a slow start before the craziness of the day takes over.
The sun streams in late in the afternoon which makes the sunroom rather warm.
But I still love to steal a moment or two in this room posting to instagram, taking a phone call, or simply resetting my mind between tasks.

So that wraps up my Summer Simplicity Home Tour.
I hope this inspired you and encouraged you to hopefully find a moment of calm if you have a busy summer like we do!
