Summer is upon us so it's time to change your bedding, host plenty of outdoor parties and redecorate with style!
I don't know about you, but I could use this crafty little insert side table for setting down drinks or even a book. It glides seamlessly under your couch and over the cushion.
A wooden radio? Seriously, can you get any cooler? And what a fun house gift for someone who has it all.
I picture this awesome photo of sunbathers in New York in a white frame with or without a white matte. What a way to let the green pop. Plus, it's fun to imagine I'm right there in the sunbathing mix.
Ice cream sundaes just got even cooler in these adorable red vintage bowls. Or if you're feeling a chill, add white chowder with a green garnish in this red bowl and you've got instant style with your meal.
This great linen fabric reminds me of water, which I'm particularly fond of. Plus, I'm super into this blue lately. I can see this fabric on a vintage wing-backed chair or throw pillows on a contrasting couch. Super fun.
I love this print! Mostly because it's close to my heart considering I was born and raised in coastal California. But it's also a great, fun graphic design that would liven up any room.
What a great and stylish hostess gift for all of the summer parties you'll be attending. Great color too!
Can you say fun summer bedding? Just looking at my bed (made or not;) would make me happy!
I love this raffia bowl-basket! How cute would this look on your kitchen counter housing bright fruit?! I think it's a great decorative piece for outdoors too.
If you know me even remotely, then you know that I heart stripes forever. This includes rugs with stripes that can add character to a room on a whim.
Love this masculine, sleek cooler. Great for upping the style ante at your next BBQ. Even a great gift for dad, husband, brother, you get the idea.
Of course you need the leather ice tongs to go with the leather ice cooler! Loving the stitch contrast on the grip too.
You'll have them at "compostable party kit." Entertain in style AND feel good about it.
Love this drink dispenser! Not only does the bottom portion allow some height for your glass or cup to fit for a comfortable pour, but you can add decoration to it. I can see it now ... a bunch of grosgrain ribbon, confetti, fruit, wrapped leaves, etc. The fun options are endless.
Wow. Not sure if a chair gets any smoother than this. It had me at tufted and blue velvet. Love the right angles on this piece.
Cooking just got more stylish with these pot rests. And how cute do these look even on their own? Great hostess gift too!
I need this all weather wicker recliner and ottoman. I love the vintage feel and the idea that it looks like you brought your indoor furniture outside.
I've never seen such a stylish ice cream maker. Have you? Not only would I score domesticity points by making my own ice cream at home but style points as well. The stainless steel against the wood finish is nice enough to make me want to keep this exposed on the counter.
Right now I have an adirondack set in my background that sits perfectly on a slab of cement. I think I just figured out a way to bring more life and dimension to that area with this awesome indoor/outdoor rug. Love the graphic.
