Spring 2018: A Wannabe Minimalist Home Tour
Spring 2018: A Wannabe Minimalist Home Tour
Happy home tour day y’all!
If you are visiting from Decorating Delirium, welcome! Isn’t Jennifer’s home gorgeous?!?!
Home tour days is one of my favorites and this one is going to be slightly different! If you have been a reader here at least the first of this year you probably know that I have decluttered and removed some of the decor that I didn’t absolutely love. Well, it’s three months later and I have yet to put anything back.
Today you get to see our home in it’s minimalist state and I have to say I’m kind of loving it! I think we breathe better with more open space and less stuff around. I even toned down my 9-year-0ld’s room quite a bit and he hasn’t complained at all. We’ve talked about decorating more and he’s not that into it (shocker!) so I decided to leave it for awhile, at least until we find decor or a theme he really loves.
I wouldn’t call myself a minimalist just yet but I find that I’m leaning more and more in that direction the older I get. I’m not sure if it’s because I just get tired of putting things away or that it makes me feel more at peace or both. But either way, the more I read about minimalism and study minimalist spaces the more I wannabe one :)
You also probably know that I’m not a huge seasonal decorator. I like to swap out a few pillows and throws here and there, but I primarily bring change through seasonal flowers or greenery or a fun table table setting.
Well, let’s get to it!

I’m a sucker for a good gallery wall and it was my mission to make this one in my master that surrounds the TV awesome!
So what do you think? Can you tell it’s a bit more minimal than usual?

Thank you so much Laura! They definitely run this household lol :)
I love the minimalist and uncluttered look of your gorgeous home Summer! I love how you added the touches of spring in a subtle way and yet feel it all around! As always so honored to share this home tour with you dear! Cheers!
Love your home so much! I’m not a big seasonal decorator either and having to store seasonal items stresses me out. You are definitely on to something :)
Well done, Summer! It makes me want to chuck everything and go minimalist, too, but wow do I have some work to do. The kitties are wonderful and very decorative. :) Happy Spring!
Thank you so much Christy! I agree, the cats are the best decor! xoxo
I am reading a book right now about a less is more approach in the home and I am sold. I agree that it does not feel sparse, but rather the true beauty of the things you have chosen to display comes though. Your home looks so fresh and crisp with beautiful pops of color.
Thank you SO much Jennifer! I am sold too and you are too kind!
Beautiful, Summer! I love your bathroom -stunning! And I guess I missed the coffee bar in your bedroom before, but that is sheer genius!
Aww thanks Jenna! You are so sweet! The coffee bar upstairs was especially crucial when my little man was little :)
What a lovely and serene space you’ve created! Gorgeous! And I love that you’ve included Mr. Grits and Shrimp in your photos. I think Mr. Grits has found a cozy spot to settle in! Lol!
Thanks so much Kim! Those cats are crazy lol!
Hands down your house is my favorite on the tour. I love the simplicity that you have allowing your spaces to breathe.. Beautiful!
Wow LeAnn, what a compliment, this made my day!! I’m so glad you too appreciate simplicity! xox
I love your minimalist look. It doesn’t look sparse, just clean and uncluttered. Your decor is in all the right places. I love your bathroom makeover too, it looks awesome. Thanks so much for joining the tour, it is always such a delight.
Thank you so much Marty! I really appreciate it! Thanks for hosting the tour! I love it every time!
Love the combination of pink and gray! Your furry feline friend is truly charming. Happy spring!
Thanks so much Laura and happy spring to you! They are two crazy cats for sure!
