Summer Updates (Sunny Side Up)

{chenille 3 piece duvet cover set/jute pouf ottomans/similar inhale & exhale prints}

Is it feeling like Summer where you live?  If you live on the coast in San Diego we have what’s lovingly known as “May Gray” and “June Gloom.”  May and June tend to be our cloudiest months and I have to work hard to not let it affect my mood!  I’m hoping it isn’t too bad overall this year, but this week has definitely been on the gloomy side.  To cheer myself up I brought a little sunshine inside this week with some simple summer updates. :)  I can’t wait to get my kids out of school and to have friends/guests over!  I got this fun duvet, pillows and poufs from Walmart and love the summer vibe they brought into our guest bedroom.  Walmart has so many cute options for summer decor right now.. inside and outside!  You’ve probably noticed that I always stick with white bedding in our bedrooms.  It’s hands down my favorite.  White duvets/comforters always look crisp and clean and then I can switch pillows and easily mix things up for different seasons.  These navy jute pouf ottomans are adorable!  A little small for this bedroom so they might end up in our outdoor area.  I’m always tweaking things and playing musical decor.. nothing new around here. :)

{chenille 3 piece duvet cover set/stripe pillow/trellis throw pillow}

When these two pink pillows showed up on my doorstep and I saw/felt them in person I immediately ordered two more in navy!  So soft and a great price.  I love the simple trellis pattern.  They come in lots of colors and are such great staples to layer with patterned pillows on a bed or couch.

Also loving these cute rattan lamps!  Honestly though.. I don’t think I’ve met anything rattan that I haven’t loved.  Ha.

Summer Updates (Sunny Side Up)

I added this white glazed ceramic pot and a simple summer candle to the nightstand and just like that.. summer in the guest room. :)

I brought some simple summer vibes into our powder bath too!

Summer Updates (Sunny Side Up)

Words can’t express my love for this little lemon bath mat.  It’s just ADORABLE.  I have a thing for lemons.  Did you know that?  My mom does too. :)  We’ve always loved them which is why I have lemons at the top of my blog.  I put lemon trees in my yard and nothing makes me happier than a bowl of lemons on my kitchen counter in the spring and summer.

Other than a lemon bath mat in my bathroom. :)   *Mom I bought one for you too!  But you have to come and visit to get it.  I’m tricky like that. ;)

{round woven tray/white glazed ceramic pot/summer candle}

This woven tray was perfect for my bathroom counter and instantly made it feel like summer!  This ceramic pot is the same pot on my guest bedroom nightstand, but the larger 8 inch size and the candle has lemons on it and ties in the bath mat.  Love it!

{paisley bath towels}

I have been so impressed with Better Homes & Gardens Walmart bath towels!  They are soft and extremely absorbent and such a great price.  We’ve been using and loving these diamond bath towels since December so I picked up this paisley set.  I still need to find a cute little hand towel to bring in the yellow in this room!

Summer Updates (Sunny Side Up)

Last but not least I finally bought these fruit prints that I’ve loved on-line for over a year!  I’ll show you what I’m going do with them as soon as I figure that out!  But it will be cute.. and summery. :)

{favorite fruit dip here}

In other fun summer news my favorite divided server plate is back in stock!  This was my most used kitchen item last summer.  I try to toss fruit/veggies on it in the morning so my kids have healthy snacks to grab throughout the day.  It makes me feel better about all of the ice cream, popsicles and candy we eat in the summer.

If you’re a mom who wouldn’t mind easing summer food guilt too, give it a try. ;)

  1. Oh wow, Erin, I love the duvet(? that looks like a bedspread to me). It has a vintage feel to it and I mean that in the best way. So do the pillows. Soft and comfortable. Lovely! You shared some really great finds here. My other favorite is the lemon rug. So fun and unexpected. I do tend to think of you (& smile) when I see lemons. Thanks for sharing all these wonderful finds. Walmart does have some great items and affordable prices. I see your gloomy overcast days and raise you some snow! LOL That’s what we got on Tuesday. (for real) But the storms finally rolled through and we are bright and sunny once again! I remember those gray days and wondering if the sun would come out again. I think you are smart to find ways to bring the sunshine into your home. Thanks for sharing, Erin. Have a great rest of your week. :)

    1. Oh my word.. snow! I’m so happy it didn’t last long! I know.. it’s so gloomy here this time of year. I can’t complain because we have fabulous weather year round, but it does affect my mood when we go days without sunshine so it’s definitely nice to bring a little summer inside for a pick me up. Enjoy May! Colorado is STUNNING in the summer! One of my favorite places to be this time of year so I’ll live vicariously through you.. once the snow is gone. ;) xo

  2. I just love those peach trellis pillows. I hesitate to buy more pillows when the cover can’t be taken off and washed. I accumulate so many pillow inserts that I really wish they would just sell the covers on its own or at least give us an option to buy it with the inserts for the stated price and reduced price without inserts.

  3. How do you keep your lemon trees happy? Any good tricks?
    I have to admit, WalMart isn’t usually my go-to for home decor but I might check out that duvet cover…looks cozy.
    Happy Summer!!!

    1. Thanks Jenni! They have really stepped up their game.. I always find cute things on-line! My lemon trees do best when they are in the full sun! They need good drainage too. I have one that just died and I think it was the soil. I have a few in pots and they do best when the soil is moist but not too soaked. I don’t know if that was much help.. we are all about trial and error over here with plants and I am NO expert.. ha. :)

  4. This bedroom is darling and so reasonable! I ordered bedding and lamps for our daughter’s room. Any plans to do a boy’s room? Love your decorating style and organization!
