Reminiscent of the ocean water, Hawaiian water especially, this precious garden boasts my absolute favorite blues and greens. Soothing yet, cheerful this little hideaway is rich in texture and color. Speaking of gardens.. the newest editions to my own garden are baby aloe plants that I just received from one of my best friends. Looking forward to nurturing them and my other plants well enough to get a photo up. The lanai is by far one of my favorite spots in our home, stay tuned for photos of it to come! ;)

Weekends in Hawaii.... beach bliss. Crystal clear water, steady salty breeze and plenty of sunshine is what you will find here on the islands. All you need is a cute suit and a pair of posh shades. Ready, set, beach. See you on the flip side ;)

Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams sofa, Chester
Blue and green are some of the sweetest companions. These two homey hues not only offer the reminder of the ocean but ooze the calming effects of the waves long after the sand leaves your toes. Don't just take my word for it...

Last Christmas I received this from my incredibly insightful husband. He knows I adore digging deeper into the history of design and that of course includes fashion design. This read is ultra posh and brilliantly unique....
'In this extraordinary collection, the glorious life of the incomparable Coco Chanel shines again through the insider photographs of renowned photographer Douglas Kirkland, who was sent on assignment to photograph the aging genius in 1962 and ended up living with her for three weeks. COCO CHANEL: THREE WEEKS IN 1962 reveals these never-before-seen photographs in all their vibrancy, shedding new light and life on one of the world's most enduring, multifaceted, and bestselling fashion legends of all time, names by Time magazine as one of the one hundred most influential people of the twentieth century.'
