{decor inspiration: endless summer}





. . . can never resist the elegance of french doors, especially when they are flung open to the intoxicating sounds of the ocean and the last fading days of summer -- and every year around this time, striped rugs and ceiling beams and the charm of a quaint beachside cottage is overwhelmingly alluring . . .

The floral carseat cover is proof that when a woman wants to bring beauty with her everywhere, she will find a way!

Have a great weekend!

So pretty and Summery -- that soft blue blanket in the first image is calling my name -- I want to have tea there and dip into a new novel.
