My Late Spring Early Summer Farmhouse Dining Room

| | |

I am sharing a beautiful tour of my dining room decorated in a rustic glam farmhouse style for summer.

I think it’s high time that I added a bit of color to my farmhouse dining room and summer is the perfect time to do so!  I kept this room on the neutral side for Christmas and the winter, but now I’m ready to brighten things up a bit.

I already use touches of blue in other parts of my home, so it was the perfect color for me to bring into the dining room too.  Plus, blue reminds me of my favorite place to be in the summer – the beach!

I was totally inspired by these blue beachy salad plates that I ran across.  The colors of the stripes remind me of the sand on the beach and all of the shades of blue in the ocean.  Summer place setting with blue and white dishes and cutlery.Pin

I used them as part of an easy breezy summer tablescape.  The gray and white checked napkins are actually tea towels that I found on clearance at a local shop a couple of years ago, but THESE are very similar.

With so much going on over on the sideboard, I needed to keep the centerpiece for the table on the simple side.  I “stole” the open metal piece from my spring mantel and added cylindrical clear glass vases filled with a combination of candles and artificial greenery.  BTW – I would NEVER light the candles while the greenery is there.  This is just for looks.  😀

I also used the striped salad plates in the baskets below the hanging lanterns.  I am so in love with the ocean blue in this room and I think that all of the greenery brings the room to life!

Dried floral hydrangeas and a couple of other blue accents are all that was needed on the opposite side of the room.

There are two armchairs in grey and white just off the dining room.Pin

I found these global inspired pillows at a local store.  They have the most wonderful nubbiness and texture!  Similar pillows can be found HERE.  They aren’t the sort of thing that I would normally place against the buffalo check fabric, but I love the totally different look they give the chairs.

I’m always fascinated by mirror reflections, so I’ll close with my very favorite shot of the entire summer farmhouse dining room.

  2. Your diningroom is lovely. I also like blue. I want to get started at bringing summer into my home. Thanks for the great ideas.

      I have always loved blue and used it around my house both in our guestroom with yellow and white accents and our livingroom with beige and white. Just a few years ago we did a new master bath and I used blue and grey. I have snowy white towels for accents and love the color combination. Blue goes with everything.

  9. Your dining room looks great with the blue accents and the greenery. Blue reminds me of the beach also, a place I love.

  10. Love the shade of blue you you choose….

  11. It’s gorgeous. Love the touches of blue. Did you use sticky tack on the bottom of the tapers to get them to stay? Love this idea.

    1. Hi Lauren. I fully expected to have to use some sticky tack, but when I put the candles in the vases they stood up by themselves. 😀 If you look closely though, you can see that one of them started leaning mid-photography and I didn’t notice.

  12. I simply adore the blue and greens you have decorated with! Perfection!!

  13. Love the blue. Looks perfect. Thanks for inspiration.

  14. Hi Suzy…Love love love the refreshed look….I have decorated our new home in a very neutral grey and white palette throughout and use blue touches here and there…I think you have breathed refreshing ‘new life’ into your home ! my all time favorite post is of your home hosting your daughter’s wedding….BEAUTIFUL ! Thanks for all you do…

  15. I LOVE beachy colors — alternating blue and white (porcelain pieces) with more teal-tones when I switch from winter to summer. Pairing blues with gray is a little unexpected, but looks fabulous!

  16. LOVE the pops of blue!!!
