Summer Mantel 2015 with Beach/Coastal Flair

Hello, hello!
Is there anyone out here?
(I sound like a Pink Floyd song!)

My goodness, I've been lost to blogland for way too long!
But, I'm back and I'm glad of that.

I hope that it has been a great Summer for everyone, so far.

Let's take a look around today...the Mantel & Living Room are set for Summer.
I went a little beachy/coastal in my decor.

I found this postage stamp sign @ Home Goods and fell in love with it!
The rest of the room was decorated around that sign.  

I had to spread the "blue" love around by making some pillows
and adding blue here & there.

The coffee table got a little nautical treatment,

as did the shelves of the entertainment center.

I love this light & airy feel for Summer!

Have an excellent day and stay cool!

  14. LOVE your mantel, and the colors are perfect for the season. I like the sandy colors and the pops of blue....especially the navy blue!

  15. Loving the coastal theme. So glad you are blogging again my sweet friend. Missed you.


  16. I love the summer decor in your room! I have been drawn to that look lately too but have been working to add some fun to our beach house, that is not on the beach but in a town on the ocean. It has been fun so far and your room has given me some great ideas.

  17. Touches of blue always speak to cool and light decor in my opinion. Love your coastal summery and pretty!

  18. Gina, I am glad to see you back and I love your pretty Summer mantel.

  19. Hi Gina! It's good to hear from you and to see your pretty beach themed room. The mantle looks fabulous and the whole room has such a soothing, laid back feel to it. The whale in the coffee table is the cutest, happy little accessory. It just made me smile!

  20. Hey Gina .. Your ' Beach " theme is perfect summer relaxation ..Love your ceramic whale and the inviting arrangement of your room..Blue and creme are so calming...Lovely post...hugs

  21. Your entire room looks so nice, Gina! The mantel with that adorable sign and the other beachy things here and there are all so charming. But the thing that really caught my eye was the cute little polka dot plate. It's adorable, light, fun and kind of a surprise in that "icing on the cake" kind of way. Happy summer!

  22. Everything looks amazing! Love the coastal touches :)

  23. Hi Gina! I'm still loving your mantel and everything else! Thanks for popping in to see me and hope you're off to a great week.
    Be a sweetie,
