THE INSPIRATION BOARD: Spotlight 263 | Bright Summer Fun

It’s definitely summer here in Southern California. We’re having a heat wave and baby it’s hot!! I’m lucky to live by the coast so we should top off today below 90 degrees. I love summer. It’s my favorite season and there were loads of summer home tours linked up – several of them are featured below – plus a bunch of other fun projects. I hope you enjoy the projects featured this week. Don’t forget to stop by tomorrow when we do it all again on The Inspiration Board Creative Party.

First up, here’s what I’ve been sharing lately.

Here are the projects featured this week.
