1930’s Cottage Style Summer Home Tour

| |

Hey friends! Today I want to share our cottage style home with you during my favorite season of the year – summer time!

YouTube video

Maybe you’ve noticed, maybe not – but I haven’t shared anything here on the blog since late June. I hate to say it’s because “I’ve been so busy” or that “I haven’t had the time”…while both of those things are partially true, I guess I definitely could have made the time. I just chose not to.

Hydrangeas are the perfect way to make your home feel like summertime!

At the beginning of summer I was bound and determined to continue sharing here and creating new content, but something happened and I decided it was okay to take a small break. This is the only summer that my boys will be 6, 3 and 1…the only one.

So we’ve been busy alright…busy fishing, busy swimming at the pool, busy going for bike rides, busy visiting grandparents, busy going to the park, busy playing on the beach…you get the idea, ha! Looking back, I don’t regret it. 🙂

I recently found this rustic antique crate from an old greenhouse - I just love it on my table as a centerpiece!

Anyway before the summer ends I want to share our home with you guys, after all this is my favorite time of year. I know it’s backwards and I should have shared this back in June, but that’s okay.

Grab some lemonade and come on in! Hope you enjoy! 🙂

A three tiered basket is the perfect place for keys and mail in an entry - I love to add stems to the top tier in the summer time for a pop of green!

One of my favorite cottage combinations - woods, whites and stone!

I don’t think I’ve shown you all our new (to me) coffee table yet. I plan to write a post about it, but it was a FB marketplace find! I stripped it down and I just love the beautiful patina it has now!

I love to combine rustic textures with bright white to create a clean cottage style!

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I made the sign above my couch earlier this spring. I had the wood in my basement already, and I always thought it would make such a great sign! “Francavilla” is our last name and since we have three boys, “& Sons” just seemed to fit!

I made the sign above our couch with an old weathered piece of wood and some stencils I already had on hand!
I love how my DIY sign really personalizes our living space
An old minnow bucket is the perfect place for summer stems!

I get asked about our white chairs all the time – so I wrote a whole post about them!

I recently found this old crate at an antique store, isn’t it beautiful? The owner said it came from a greenhouse nearby. I love using it as a centerpiece on my table!

This vintage cow print was a $7 estate sale find, you need to head over to Instagram to see the before photo! It was damaged and torn but I love how it shines in this new frame.

This vintage print has beautiful summer colors - I love the blues and greens it adds to our dining space!

    1. Hey Kelsey!! Thank you so much! 🙂 They are the original plaster ceilings from when the home was built, I’m not sure of the name! I was told that a mold was used to get the coved effect. It’s pretty neat isn’t it? I love ours! 🙂
