My Summer 2012 Living Room Decor

Here is a tour of my current living room as promised! It has been really fun adding a new color that I've never used before and incorporating my summer vacation souviners.
Make sure you look all the way through for a list of sources for things found in this room.

When you first walk in, this is what you see.

This is the coffee filter wreath I made last year and I just switch out the ribbon every holiday/season.

This is another bigger coffee filter wreath I made this week specifically for this space. These curtains were not here during my spring tour, I will post later how we made this extra long curtain rod from scratch! These adorable pillows were the start of it all as far as adding more color into my living room. I'm just loving this pop of aqua!

Added this aqua stripe frame using an old wood craft frame and recovering it with scrapbook paper.

This is where most of my vacation shopping went. Found these lovely blue Ball canning jars, fish plate, votive holders, bowl, and boxwood ball all in one successful trip!

Here are my sand and seashell souviners I collected at a fraction of the Pottery Barn cost.

Standing at the other end of the room, this is what you see.

Here is the funny "nook/ledge/space" I never know what to do with.

Covered decorative balls with aqua tissue paper.

More ribbon to pull in the color.

And lastly, more beautiful sand, seashell, and driftwood souviners from the ocean.
