Lake Bound

And we’re off! It’s the official start of (my) summer.

I’m a late bloomer.

Coastal House in Spain

Jul 28 2011

I seem to have Spain on my mind.

This time from the Costa Brava – still dreaming of my vacation there from a few years back. Wish I had stayed in something like this (who wouldn’t?):

Lovely Catifa chairs!

Clearly this house wasn’t built in North America. No railings!

Colourful Madrid Apartment

Jul 27 2011

I really can’t live without colour. If you’ve been following this blog, you know that I gravitate towards neutral foundations in homes…grey tones, white walls, simple wood floors – but I love adding colour as an accent (i.e. just take a look at my striped runners!).

Seeing this home in Madrid just makes me smile – it feels so carefree and unrestrained.

Country Home in Portugal

Jul 25 2011

This spot outside of Lisbon looks like the perfect kind of place to waste away a gorgeous summer afternoon.

Great use of colourful textiles – particularly love the antique kilim in the shot below:
