A Southern Summer Home Tour 2014


Moss Wreath Planter

WELCOME to Georgia y’all!! Where the weather’s HOT and the tea is SWEET! I’m so honored to be following my friend Rhoda, of Southern Hospitality on the 2014 Blogger Summer Home Tour; hosted by my fabulous and talented friend Gina, of Shabby Creek Cottage! Be sure to pay her a visit to start at the beginning of this amazing tour of blogger homes!

We’ve been in our rental house, here in  the Atlanta area, for exactly one year and even though we won’t be in it forever, we’ve worked hard to turn it into a home!

    My goodness Heather, your home is gorgeous. I love it’s brightness & sun-filled spaces. The colors you’ve introduced are incredible. Can I visit? I think I could sit in your breakfast room for hours with a glass of sweet tea :)


  2. says

    Love it, Heather … your summer home is beautiful and so alive with color! I know all who enter feel happy as soon as they step foot in your door. Speaking of your door … what a cool idea hanging the iron piece on there! Thanks for sharing … Happy Summer!

    I don’t understand how some of you guys have the time, money, or energy to make your house look so perfect and magazine-worthy! :) I’m over on my blog trying to turn my crack-house laundry room into livable conditions. HA! Your home is lovely! The blue and white theme is soothing. I’ve recently developed a liking of blue and white ceramics, so I peeped your little collection. Very nice! Well done! If you’d like to see my home, oh you must see my latest post for my 30-Day June Room Challenge ;). It’s on the opposite spectrum from your home. LOL. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous home and summer ideas!

    Your home is gorgeous, I love all the color! Just wondered where the number/letter picture came from? Thanks!

    • says

      Hi Jan! It’s actually a reproduction print that I purchased at Hobby Lobby and then framed. Cheap art! ha! I’ve also seen it at Michael’s. :) Thank you for stopping by!

  5. Mary Alice Kenley says

    Beautiful! Is there any way to find out more information about the bird print in the pillow on the bed? I don’t get online every day, so if there’s a way you could respond to the email, I’d be ever so grateful! Thanks.

  6. says

    Oh my gosh Heather! I am just swooning at your gorgeous home and I am just dying to have a firepit like yours. Did you guys DIY and if so, do you have a post about it? I’ve seen similar ones, but I really liked the small spacers between the larger pieces.

  7. says

    Heather….that was so much fun! I love seeing where you crash. The front door….I am totally copying that. And when I saw your wedding picture I thought, “Hey, why don’t I have my wedding picture hanging up somewhere?!” You’ve inspired me. Lisa~

    Your home is gorgeous, Heather! I love it all – but here are my two favorite things: 1. That front door – stunning, original, eye-catching! 2. That beautiful blue chair – love! Thanks for sharing your home with us!

    Beautiful home! I love the use of bright colours! Question, what pattern/brand are your dishes on your breakfast room table? I love that colour green!

  10. says

    So pretty! Love all the touches of blue. Yes, it is hot here in Georgia. Your wicker and those gorgeous prints from Kirklands would fit in my home very well, so send them on over when you tire of them. :)Thank you for sharing your pretty Southern home!
    Happy Summer!
