Summer time and the living is easy....


"Design is coming to grips with one's real lifestyle, one's real place in the world. Rooms should not be put together for show but to nourish one's well- being."
-Albert Hadley



Recently I have been inspired to restyle my home with the same "attitude" we adapt while vacationing. A place to get away, relax and leave daily stresses behind. Why reserve "escaping" for weekends and vacations when you can have it every day? Breezy white smocked curtains, soft colors of washed aqua and faded blue, washable vintage fabrics, sisal rugs, beaded board walls, screen doors, distressed finishes, straw hats, fluted ironstone compotes overflowing with our collections of seaglass and shells. Nothing earth shattering in the way of design...just our passions infused into each room.
