Summer Garden Home Collection | Blue Checks, Green Fleur Block Prints, Pillows, Linens, Striped Ribbon, Wraps & Peony

The older I get, the less concerned I am about trends and the latest, in general. Instead I want our home to feel gracious, comfortable, and tried and true. I like pretty things. Remember pretty?
During the summertime, I like our lives to stand still and away from the rest of the world. I think of that quintessential summer cottage that sits at the end of a shady lane somewhere, maybe next to the water, that is removed from time. I think of bare feet in the grass playing under the cherry tree, the smell of fresh laundry, lush green backyards with rose-scented air, over-stuffed beds with crisp white sheets layered with small print linens, slow mornings spent piddling in the kitchen and late sunset dinners on the patio.
The Garden Home Collection feels like this to me. It is a classic combination of blues and greens with hints of lilac and peony pink. I have baskets full of potted plants (thanks to Tessa of Nine and Sixteen for the inspiration), and cheerful stripes and checks that give that collected, charming look that a feels little country, but fresh and summery at the same time.
Oh happy summer, you are just around the corner.

Striped Ribbon for turns these gift basics into something lovely.

Tessa ( inspired this set up - she's queen of cozy and charming.  I realized I already had all of these items, but putting them together like this makes the coziest little corner.

Green Fleur 20" Medium Pillow Cover
Lake Blue Check 22" Large Pillow Cover

It is all about the mix and match that makes a home feel cozy and collected.  Some of these pillow covers are from collections past, then mixed with the new Green Fleur & Lake Blue Check Pillow Covers - they feel comfortable and fresh.

I use 22" Large Covers on the outside, then two 20" Medium on the inside, or one 20" and one rectangle for accent.

Classic Cream & Sugar Set (Sugar seen, here)

I freshened our guest bedroom with new enlarged 11x14" Botanicals and some Green Fleur Pillow Covers.  The green always looks so nice with our blue guest room.

I love how sweet this room feels - scalloped duvet, stacks of quilts on the chest in the dormer window.

Back down in the kitchen, I moved all of the potted plants to the window to make it feel like a greenhouse in here.

The sideboard is dressed up with Green Leaf Plates for a touch of a garden feel.

Perfect for summer garden entertaining - beautiful color with a graceful patina.  Slightly rustic, but so, so pretty.
