2019 Summer Home Tour for Jeweled Interiors
Has anyone told you lately that you have great taste? Well, if you are joining me from any of my friends in the “Something Different Home Tour”, then you obviously do :). This tour is different than most. You see, it’s a summer home tour for unique and “outside the box” homes. I am honored to participate with so many talented bloggers. Don’t forget to go check out the other participants at the end.
Note: Most of the products listed in the summer home tour were originally sponsored. I appreciate the support of these sponsors, and together we are teaming up to bring you unique design ideas. For a complete source of each room feel free to click the link at the bottom of each section.
I tried some simple swaps in our home for summer, simply because I wanted to keep it fresh. If I’m being honest with you though, I think I may have liked it all BEFORE I changed it all up. Here is my Spring Home Tour if you are killing time and have nothing better to do (sounds like wishful thinking, doesn’t it?).
Tell me your thoughts on mustard… The color that is. I swapped out the eight blue chairs for these sunny yellow ones and I honestly don’t know which I like better…maybe the blue? Check out the old chairs and tell me what you think.
This statement-making Milton and King Viva Tropicana wallpaper is one of my favorite elements in our home.
Our most recent project was our master bedroom for the One Room Challenge. It was a major effort to squeeze this much into 5 weeks, but we pulled it off in the nick of time…. I’m still beyond grateful that this room was chosen by Better Homes and Gardens editorial team. I’ve been pinching myself every morning when I wake up in this beautiful space.
It’s hard to pick a favorite part, but I think it may be the moulding, paint, or chandelier.
We still love our DIY channel tufted headboard. Luckily I have a tutorial for you here.
Here is the complete master bedroom source list and more pics
It’s hard to believe the difference we made in our entryway this winter. We installed Metrie Moulding, scaffolding, wallpaper, lighting, and paint. It is so much fun to be able to make a great first impression.
Did you know that this DIY malachite table use to be an Ikea Malm Dresser? I swear! I’m not pulling your leg.
There is our naughty dog, Alex. When he isn’t stealing people’s underwear and socks, he sits and admires the polka dot wallpaper. There are three good design reasons why I picked this paper.
Sometimes it’s the hardest projects that make the biggest difference. This can definitely be said for the thick chunky Metrie Moulding that we installed in our 17 ft tall entryway. I love value and visual interested added by this project.
Still have questions? No problem. Here is a COMPLETE LIST OF ENTRYWAY SOURCES
I started to switch around a couple of things in the Fall 2019 One Room Challenge room. I took a poll in my instagram stories yesterday and most people liked the way that it looked before I switched out the art. Now I’ve got you curious, haven’t I? 😉
I think I can count on two hands the number of times anyone has played this piano since the last home tour ?. At least the upholstered piano bench looks good. Now it has so much more personality.
Teen Bed Room
My teenager is still enjoying her room, even if we haven’t made any updates in the last couple of months. She was inspired by the teen bedroom designed by Jennifer from Dimples and Tangles, and we used that as the jumping off point for the space.
The DIY headboard was completed in one weekend, and it adds so much personality to the space.

While nothing has changed in the upholstered bunk bedroom either, I’m happy to report that the girls still love it the moulding, chandelier, chair, and all of the other elements.
Let me guess…You have never seen a bunk bed like this before? Good news! I wrote a complete upholstered bunk bed tutorial for you. I think there is one step in there that would really surprise you.
Also, HERE is the complete source list for this bunk bedroom!
My next room is the guest bedroom downstairs. This will be a tricky one to capture (it’s itty bitty with no natural light…DOH) but I have big plans for this little space.
Also, I might be able to squeeze in a sunroom makeover before wrapping up the end of the summer with the Bathroom Primp and Pamper.

Now, if you are anything like me, you might be dying with excitement over the other participants’ tours. I bet that they are going to be soooo good. Let’s go check them out, shall we?
My jaw has been on the floor during this entire post!!!! What an incredible home you have!
I never get tired of seeing your home jewel. I could look at it every day! Love how different the spaces are but everything still feels so cohesive. Can’t wait to see what you do with the guest room!
I love the way you tuft, girl. That DIY channel tufted headboard though!!! You’re a visionary. BTW, I’m obsessed with the sunny yellow cantilever chairs. Infatuated even. And hey, if you’re not as in love with the small decor swaps, it’ll feel oh-so-good when you put back your faves ? Regardless, I love it all, Jewel. You can do design no wrong in my book.
Alright, I have to pick my jaw up off the floor now first! STUNNING is all I can say. Love everything so so much.
That is so kind! Thanks so much Shelley!

Wonderful tour as always Jewel! I love both sets of chairs. How fortunate you are to have two sets to choose from!

Jewel! What a beautiful compilation of your spaces! I honestly can’t pick a favorite they are all so gorgeous!
Thanks so much Tina!
I love the curtains you have used in the dining room as well as your daughter’s room. Where did you get them? That shade of blue is gorgeous.
I don’t know why you took down my question? I really am interested in the curtains and the whole comment was not derogatory at all.
Hi Patty! I hadn’t taken it down, it just needed to be approved first. That system protects my site from spam 🙂
The curtains are dupioni silk from @fabric.com. Our last house had a great-room with 10 windows so I spent a small fortune fabric 😜 and was happy to see that I could still use them in this house too :).
Thanks for following along.
Hi!!! I love every inch of your home. Do you have a tutorial how you made the chinoiserie screen behind your bed?
It is HEAVY plywood, then wallpaper, then trim.
