A summer retreat

With summer well under way, we can’t help but think about spending all our time in a quaint New England cottage or a sunny Florida beach house. While it may seem like the weekend is still far away (Happy Monday, everyone!), we’re dreaming up the perfect scheme for our very own summer getaway. 10570124_1444589519150978_1543306213_nNHL Cabas R/LL/Soft Blue/Grey (Claremont): This ikat stripe from Claremont makes the room. How beautiful would pillows out of this fabric be on a blue sofa?

Hamma in Ivory (Malabar): A fresh crisp white makes the perfect upholstery for the cushions of a pair of side chairs–we’re thinking some vintage wicker ones will do the trick!

Plumetty Bleu Celeste 13 (Claremont): A fun whimsical print makes the perfect pillows for a pair of occasional chairs, mentioned above.

Utopia in Somerset (Rogers & Goffigon): A sweet blue glazed linen helps ground the room. We imagine this on a chic tuxedo style sofa.

Prima Alpaca in Curry (Sandra Brown via Holland and Sherry): You may be questioning our use of wool in a summer retreat; however, this fabric makes the the most beautiful upholstery for a tufted ottoman that functions both as coffee table and footrest.

Sophie Sheer in Pale Slate (Carleton V): This sheer would make a beautiful Roman shade. We love the detail of the blue stitching. Nothing says summer like a little stripe.

So just one question left to ask–is it Friday yet? Have a great week everyone! Stay tuned for some exciting news to be announced on the blog later this week.
