I love summer decorating.  We are blessed enough to live on a beautiful freshwater lake and our décor definitely reflects that.

Lake Cottage Style Summer House Tour at The Happy Housie

So come on in and take the tour!!

I’ve got a fun twist planned for you today…. you get to choose the order you take your tour in! 

So meander through our house at your own pace – we are thrilled to have you here.

And at the end there is a fun giveaway for a Keurig Coffee Maker and Godiva Gift Basket for you to enter as well- make sure not to miss that!!

Summer House Tour at The Happy Housie Front Porch

Our front door leads directly into a small entry hall… this year I had added some hits of pink.

And yellow.  Yellow is always wonderful in the summer.  It makes me feel cheery just to look at it.

From the entry hall you can turn left and head down the hall to the bedrooms, bathrooms, and laundry room or you can turn left and go into the living room.

Now it’s your choice! 

Do you want to come in and see the living and dining room first? 

Or head left down the long hallway and see the bedrooms, bathrooms, and laundry room? 

head into the living and dining room

    Love your house! I have the same IKEA furniture as your living room and was wondering if you made the pillows for the backs of the chairs. I love that look and it gives them a nice look and extra color rather than just small pillows.

  2. Kay Brodine says

    Krista, I love your summer decor! Really like the board and batten. We used that in our river cottage and love the look. Enjoyed it all!

      Thank you! I bought the rugs from a nearby home décor store called Home Sense – if you are in the US then I am told that it is very similar to your Home Goods stores. I love adding a fun hit of color in a simple way – and easy to change up!
