Perusing our outdoor rated textiles yesterday and this happy stripe from Janus et Cie caught my attention. Doesn’t it just make you crave summer?
A few of us are relaxing in the triangle for the holiday and Molly & Ashley are headed to the beach (lucky!)
This photograph by Paul Octavious at 20x 200.com will be this weekend’s inspiration. Yes, please. Bring on the summer.
Hope you have a fabulous holiday!
I’ve selected the palette below
as my favorite paint colors for this summer’s Color Event
A play on traditional Americana red, white, & blue,
I could see these colors ending up inside or outside of a Loire Valley Chateau,
Outside the chateau or your house- I love the idea of eating al fresco with these beautiful table linens or bistro dining chairs (for sale at our studio)
The paint color combination of pale grayish blue, deep red, steamed milk, and a brown so dark its almost black becomes more invigorating when energetic stripes are added in-
Chocolate and Cream Striped beach umbrellas are to me the equivalent of summer on a stick.
The gorgeous photograph above is from the Mariette Hines Gomez collection for Soicher Marin
