The Pool House Gets A Fresh Look

 The good thing about the 4th being on a Wednesday is that we get to spend five days in Asti Heaven!
Five days to play in the garden and spruce things up for our summer-time guests.
Last evening, I worked on the pool house.

 I brought up new succulents to replace the old ones...

...and the succulent suitcase found a new, permanent home.
Permanent, because it weighs a ton and took two of us to lift it!  

I found this red floral pillow at Homegoods last week.
Only one, so now I'm on a mission to find more.

 After "decorating" the pool house, I had some photoshoot fun with my Canon, playing with the evening light...  



Summer time, and the living is easy!
Today, I'm working on a summer tablescape, so stay tuned!

I'm joining Kim at Savvy Southern Style for Wow Us Wednesday.

Pin It!

Asti is a piece of heaven. How beautiful and serene. I don't know that I could leave once I arrived.
I'm tweaking things around the house this week too. A little change is good!
Enjoy your weekend........Sarah

Your piece of heaven that is Asti certainly looks fabulous, Delores. I love the succulent suitcase and the rug (which I also bought on your recommendation and love it). I am more relaxed just looking at the pictures of your home. Enjoy it.

Love what you did with that suitcase ! I can imagine how heavy it is loaded with succulents...it weighs a ton on it's own!

Love your outdoor space. I just showcased our outdoor space a few weeks ago on my blog. Thanks for sharing.

“Summer time and the living is easy!” – I couldn’t agree more! Summer always spells relaxation and unwinding. And it is also the perfect time to give your pool house a much needed makeover. And I think you did an incredible job in making it more inviting! I, for one, would love to drink some mimosas and take a dip in your pool. That for me is what summer is all about!

Best,
Cathy Newman
