The Loveliest Looks of Summer Tour

I am so happy to announce that I’m participating in the Loveliest Looks of Summer Tour hosted by Summer Adams & A Blissful Nest. We will all be sharing how we’ve added touches of summer to our home decor – and of course some summer fashion. We all have different perspectives, so I know you will find some new summer inspiration on this tour.  Scroll to the bottom of this post to see all of the bloggers!

To bring a little Summer into my home I decided to style my kitchen for the season. I’ve been loving blue and white this Summer so I brought in these beautiful blue and white jars. I placed them in front of my windows to highlight them – and honestly they look great on their own. However, you can style them with fresh flowers for a party to spice things up a bit. Don’t they look stunning?!

Full disclosure – I had these flowers in my dining room (they are fake!) and wanted to see how they would look in these jars. Turns out they worked perfectly. Fake flowers are a great long-term option that you can carry through the other seasons as well.

To continue this theme throughout my kitchen, I filled this blue and white antique pitcher with some oak leaf hydrangeas from my yard. I thought it looked great but at the same time was so effortless! The fern on my island is real as well. Next, for a pop of color, I threw in this large jar of clementines. I love the bright orange mixed with blue! Also, having this jar out only encourages my kids to eat more fresh fruit!

    Love your ideas but your countertops are incredible. Are they actually Calcutta gold or something else? Would love to have your ideas pop off light countertops.

    • 8.3.18
      jesscathell said:

      They are Calcutta gold and I know that marble is high maintenance with stains and ring marks, but I love it and went with it anyways.

        Marnie Ward said:

        I love it too!
        We are remodeling ours currently. Have you had any issues with the countertop??
        We had looked at it previously, but have reservations because it’s marble…. it the exact colors we are looking fir.

        • 9.22.21

          I’m mindful to wipe up citrus and wine after I spill it. It’s not going to stay pristine, but I love the look of it too much to
          not have it. If you do honed, it wears better than a polished marble. I’ve put this in 2 houses and I’ll do it in my next I love
          it so much!!

    ARe your countertops calacatta oro marble? How do you keep them looking so beautiful? What product do you use? Did you have them sealed?

    • 9.19.18
      jesscathell said:

      They are Calcutta gold marble, and they will stain. We have a ton of water marks on them from glasses and stuff, but if red wine//oils//acidic fruits spill you must wipe up right away! They are polished and our pantry is honed. I forget if we had them sealed, but I just use Meyers organic spray on them and it all works out!

    • 9.27.18
      jesscathell said:

      They are reclaimed wood beams, so basically they were taken out of a really old barn. Reclaimed wood always has so much more character, they are my FAVE!

        Thank you so much! We’re trying to do steel windows in our next reno but it more than doubled our budget due to the extensive amount of glazing we have. We’re looking at Aluminum alternatives but would love to price a different steel manufacturer if you like yours!

      Hi, thanks for following! It’s Calcutta marble. It is a hight maintenance stone, but it’s so pretty! The stone is honed not polished, so it’s a little easier than polished.
