Hello, summer! How amazing would that retro polka dot look from Carolina Herrera be for a summer wedding? I'm loving it, but this budget-friendly find could be a great reality- adjusted option.
The texture and knotted fringe of this rug are also speaking to me and it doesn't hurt that it is on sale for the 4th of July.
I lost a piece of my heart to this whimsical umbrella stand that would be a cheery addition to any entry or I also see it burgeoning with a colorful bouquet of flowers. Again, ON SALE!
As we are looking ahead to a move out of our old family home up north I am thinking of ways to give our new downsized house those head-turning elements of style like these modern house numbers.
Sometimes it seems as if I keep seeing the same things over and over on the design blogs, so when I saw these old world, lace curtain inspired shutters I was totally intrigued. I liked how they were mixed with more ubiquitous plantation shutters because a whole house of this look would probably be too much. You can see the entire home tour here.
This vignette from Jane Coslick's color-infused Chu Cottage just makes me happy. Her ebullient design never fails to inspire me and this time it is the mix of colors and that periwinkle and flamingo fabric. I'm totally smitten.
And finally, because I seem to embrace all design styles, I am shifting from the elegantly coastal look I like for our home in Florida to a more rustic farmhouse look up north. These swivel stools made my heart skip a beat and will make a nice contrast to some of the more modern touches I have brought into the space.
I've taken a bit of break from blogging this past month so now I have so many posts in my head that I need to get to, but seeing that it is already the first of a new month, I figured I needed to start back with my June's Latest Loves. If you missed some of the earlier posts in this series you can find them here.
And please visit again as I reveal our new front doors, both here and up north, our choices for exterior paint colors, hints for a successful move, kitchen updates, and kitchen organizational ideas. When things work for me I just like sharing them and it feels so good to hear from you that you found something here to inspire, resolve an issue, or just discovered something new. Thanks for visiting.
