Hello hello and happy SUMMMAH! I am so glad you are here. I love sharing tidbits around my home as the seasons and temperatures change. Today I am also joining other bloggers sharing their summer homes and I hope you find lots of inspiration for your own home. I’m honored to have teamed up with Marty from A Stroll Thru Life along with 29 other talented bloggers to share our summer homes with you this week. If you are coming over from Lori at the Stonybrook House, Welcome!
I always love connecting with this great group of bloggers and if you’ve been around here long you know I always “greet” you at the door to kick things off on my seasonal tours. So here is this summer’s front door “hello”! This year, I’ve got sweet Piper joining me on the tour who will help show you around.
Awwww, let’s just take a moment to say hello to sweet Piper. She’s a new addition since last tour, and you can read up on her HERE.

WELCOME: Home Sweet Home – Our Summer Home Tour
- To catch up on all past tours click here.
- If you are new here at Southern State of Mind- WELCOME! I’m Heather, the crazy-crafting-iced-coffee-drinking-mom behind the blog. My husband and I live in Atlanta with our two boys – ages 7 and 10. I have been blogging for around 7 years, ever since I was fortunate to stay home with my youngest.
- This blog brings me so much joy and I am so glad you are joining me today to have a look around! One way to catch up with me is to read my Front Porch Coffee Talks where I share what’s on my mind on Friday mornings just like friends chatting over coffee.
- Last but not least, I share my day to day over on Instagram @ SOUTHERNHEATHER and I would absolutely love to see you over there!
So with that, grab your iced coffee or margarita (with salt please) and let’s take a look around at our summer home sweet home!

KITCHEN: Home Sweet Home – Our Summer Home Tour
The next stop on our tour is the heart of our home- the kitchen. Orange you glad it’s blue hydrangea season? I am always drawn to blue hydrangeas and citrus this time of year so I did a new twist! I will be sharing a full post on this next week to see how I made this!
We got the back porch all cleaned up last weekend and I was excited that my Amazon pillows arrived just in time and I love the pretty blue and white floral pattern. I rounded up lots of designer inspired pillows HERE if you want to grab some. We love spending summer nights out here and enjoying the big table for family meals. Nothing matches out here and it is still quite the collection of what I like to call “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, and Something Blue”… but hey it works. Maybe someday we will finally decide on some new seating for out here.

DINING ROOM : Home Sweet Home – Our Summer Home Tour
So now let’s all take a peek at the dining room. It is always one of my favorite spaces in my home because it usually has zero clutter and is so peaceful! Sometimes in the summer I just walk in here to take a breather when I feel overwhelmed with the “mess” of having the kids around all day. The main change I made in here for summer was to add a huge faux orchid as the centerpiece. Would you believe I thrifted that for $12? I love how it’s simple and bold all at once.

GUEST ROOM: Home Sweet Home – Our Summer Home Tour
If you’ve been around here the past two months then you already know I just whipped our Guest Room into shape as part of the spring One Room Challenge. With a “Southern Boutique Hotel Room” vision in hand, I added statement wallpaper, new lights, curtains, art and bedding. Even the bathroom got a fresh new look!

Alright, that does it for today. I think Sweet Piper needs her walk and I probably need to go make a meal. Seriously though, why do they want dinner every night? 🙂
Now please be sure to check out my blogging bestie Rachael at This is Our Bliss. While I have never physically been to her house, I talk on the phone with her almost every day so I feel like I am always there in spirit. 🙂

Your bedroom and bathroom refresh are so beautiful. I know your guests will feel like they are in a luxury hotel. Every time I see your amazing back yard I drool. Love that amazing space. I think that is where you would find me my any time of year, such a great place to sit, relax and entertain. Thanks so much for joining the tours again this season, your home is so welcoming and inspiring.
Adorable Piper is the perfect tour guide to your beautiful home. Love everything so much!

Hi Heather. Your home is just lovely with all of the summer touches that you added. I love the combination of orange slices in your hydrangea arrangement!
Christy @ 11 Magnolia Lane says
Can you believe it’s been seven years? Time flies! You just keep getting cuter, by the way. Your home is amazing, as always–that zebra wallpaper is perfect! Happy Summer, Heather!
Kim | Shiplap and Shells says
I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed your summer home tour over an iced coffee, however, I thought about the margarita! Your outdoor spaces are absolutely amazing! I especially loved your bedroom with that zebra wallpaper. You have such a great style. So happy to be touring with you this week.
That zebra wallpaper is the best, so SO pretty! Well, I was also drooling all over the gorg outdoor space and dining room. I don’t remember seeing Piper during the previous tours, he was being a good host, adorable! 🙂
Heather, I love your beautiful home so much! Your bedroom and bathroom are gorgeous and you are too! I always love to tour your home…happy summer!
