HELLO SUMMER {i'll have a Pina Colada)




Oh what a paradise, the only place in our house that is safe from the terror that is our children. This Summer our bedroom will continue to be our haven, we'll retreat their for icy cold evening beers and drink them with the french doors wide open, sea breeze blowing on our crispy skin.

A light colour palette and subtly printed textiles ensure the early morning sunshine will dance around with glee. I mean, at least something will - Dave and I will be up and at 'em with the kids by half five most days.

I've layered my favourite linen quilt with vintage crochet, hand crafted lace and Pony Rider florals. A mass of over sized patterned linen pillows by Ourlieu provide the prefect amount of fun, I mean, palm trees and undertones of deserted island escapes? Yes please - pass the Pina Colada.

Happy Summer friends! May there be sand at the end of your beds!

WHOOHOOO!

  2. I love the layering on your bed. I also like the 2 different styles of bedside tables. They look so good together! I like the traditional and modern mix of all your pillows.
