Endless Summer at Home

I hope you had a wonderful Fourth of July weekend! It’s funny- the Fourth always seems to signal that summer is officially here and somehow, already halfway gone. I have totally been in summer mode lately, forcing myself to disconnect from work on the weekends and even spending more time outdoors. With summer firmly on my mind, I have been really drawn to beach houses as of late, probably because I am secretly craving a beach vacation. There are elements that are tailor-made for beach houses and outdoor use– wicker, rattan, and other natural fibers, bamboo and coral details, weathered wood, crisp white director’s chairs, stripes and ethnic fabrics and colors like red, white, and blue, of course. The beauty of these elements is that they really work anywhere and at anytime of year. It’s like having an endless summer at home no matter where you are.
