Searching for Summertime

Late January can be the bleakest time of the year, especially when it's FREEZING cold, your football team's season ended weeks ago, and your basketball team could foreseeably lose to a solid AAU team.  This time of the year leaves me dreaming about sunshine, breezy porches, brightly colored upholstery with white piping, and decorating with seashells.

Meg Braff is one of our favorite designers- she has perfected the beachy chic look.  Her designs are sophisticated and modern, and she isn't afraid to use a little color.  They are just the little pick-me-up we need this time of year!

If you want to add a few coastal elements to your home, here are some that we love:

 A wavy mirror that reminds us of oyster shells

A striped canopy that would be so fab in the back yard of a white brick house

A faux bamboo pagoda chandelier above a breakfast room table

An oversized classic rope knot, perfect to hold open even the heaviest door

Are you as ready for summertime as we are?!
