Summer Lovin'




 


 

 


Summer love


When I think of summer my favourite things come to mind -

freshly caught seafood
ice-cream treats
lazy Sunday mornings
falling sleeping to the sound of crashing waves
pretty summer dresses and 
relaxed days on the beach.

An Afternoon By The Pool





 





I couldn't think of a more perfect way to while away a sunny afternoon
than spending it by the pool in my Hamptons backyard!
That would certainly suit me down to a tee.
I am also loving the idea of no sand and no waves to contend with!
Now don't get me wrong I love the beach
but I could easily see myself lounging chicly by a pool
complete with pool house and an ice bucket full of champagne!

Beach House Textures











Beach House Style with Beige & White Stripes


 



These beach houses all have one thing in common
and that's their use of textured materials.
 There's sisal rugs, exposed timber beams,
pine lining boards, textured pendant lights
timber floorboards and seaside finds.
 These elements all contribute to a relaxed and understated coastal feel.
These colour palettes have all taken their cue
from their natural surroundings and 
have been inspired by the colours of the 
beach, sand dunes, clifftops and ocean.

A Touch Of Aqua












Aqua Homewares



As most of you have probably already guessed
I'm a little obsessed with the colour aqua!

Therefore I am loving these fun, painted pieces
and aqua homewares.
My beach house is filled with pops of this colour
which gives it a fresh, beachy vibe ...
even on the dullest of days!

The Taste Of Summer














Just the word ice-cream” brings back happy childhood memories
 of long, lazy summers. 

I have fond memories of 5 cent lemonade icy-poles at the beach, home-made popsicles and queuing up at the 'Mr Whippy' ice-cream van on a hot summer's day with the other neighbourhood kids! These days I try to resist the temptations of ice-cream but there's the odd perfect day when I simply can't resist!
