Share Your Style #15

Hope you had a great Memorial Day Weekend. Ours was wet and soggy, but we spent that time getting some work done around the house. I'm so glad you're here to join in on Share Your Style. Let's see what happened last week.

Robin from Happy at Home is my feature post this week, where she shared her new wall grouping in her Living Room. Her wonderful hand made "Flowers" sign and two botanicals that she framed, look perfect here. 










Last week I posted about an easy way to lighten up a Living Room for Summer,  Painting a Jelly Cupboard to fit into my space, and then how a little serendipity reunited me with an old family cemetery. 


Now, here's Ron, our host this week:

Hi y'all!

It's my turn again to host this great weekly soiree. I hope you will continue to Share Your Style with us.




I spent the Memorial Weekend in my "happy place", Grand Isle. The unofficial start of summer is here, and I am most excited that my summer will be here in just two days.







This is me and my cousin Monique outside Kajun Kastle at age 7, 40 years ago!!!! Do you like my flowered raft???




Do you have summer plans? This summer I have trips planned to Perdido Key, Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, and Palm Springs. I cannot wait to share the adventures of Uptown Acorn coming soon....

Thanks to all of you who shared your style with us last week. Here are a few of my favorites:

Southern State of Mind shared her beautiful foyer transformation. 




You must see this chair redo from Decor to Adore.




I am a lover of white flowers and silver. Ramon of Rowhouse Blog shared his favorite combination with us.




Meatloaf and Melodrama shared this idea for summer cookies, flip flops. I adore these so much. Brilliant!




Who doesn't love a good summer cocktail? Life In My Empty Nest shared the delicious sounding Simple Cranberry Margarita. Cheers!

Pillow Change-up for a Summer Look

Sometimes, just a few small change-ups can make a space more seasonal. And since you all know that I'm a certified pillow fanatic, that's just what a pillow switch accomplished. Last week we had one of the warmest days so far, so I thought I might need to put away the furry leopard print pillows and the animal print PB throw. Instantly lighter and more "summery".




These next few pics were taken at Christmas, 
and I think that's the last time I even shared photos of the Living Room.




This was before we had much up on the wall.
We still don't have a lot, but there was even less at Christmas.


This is why I love a neutral space,
it's so much easier to change things up.



I made these very simple floral pillows for both sofa's
 a few years ago as an option at the old house.




This one is a hand lettered calligraphy pillow from The Feathered Nest.



These are from Restoration Hardware a few years ago.






My sis made this monogrammed pillow for me for Christmas
a while back with her Silhouette Machine.


Funny, I hadn't even thought about these pillows until I was rummaging
around in my quilt and pillow storage.
 Having things visible makes it so much easier to see what might work.



If I had limitless funds,
 I'd buy these same rugs in the mushroom color too,
 for a lighter Summer look.




A large sisal rug would be an option, but with chewing kitties,
I think I'll stick with the ones I have.

Hope you all had a great weekend,
We worked in the garage and storage room downstairs,
still unpacking wayward boxes and organizing.
