Southern Seaside Style








These folks in South Carolina don't exactly live seaside (although according to the map, they're a heck of a lot closer than I am!) but you'd never know it from their charming home designed by Jim Strickland of Historical Concepts, photographed here by Laurey W. Glenn for a feature in Southern Living. I swear I'm hearing waves after looking at all those breezy porches! That swinging daybed?! I WANT ONE! I love all those shutters so much too, you just don't see them up here in Minnesota. We do have screened-in porches though, in fact mine is kinda like that last image. But I love how they have draperies made from waterproof sailcloth in theirs. My cute throw pillows and I could have used those during this nasty storm we had a few days ago! For more on this delightful home, head over to Southern Living! I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! :)

Capri Tiberio Palace












If only I could hop over to Capri twice in one month in real life too! Today we're back on the beautiful island, this time visiting the beautiful hotel Capri Tiberio Palace. This chic five-star boutique hotel just received a stylish makeover by fashion designer turned architect Giampiero Panepinto. These photos taken by Giulio Oriani were recently featured in Elle Decoration as well as Men’s Mentore. I love how they're all touched by the turquoise reminiscent of the amazing views off the private balconies. Have any of you ever been to Capri?? It looks like an incredible place to visit! (And I wouldn't mind to spend my nights here either!)

Annie Ballantine


When I first saw this den designed by Annie Ballantine Designs (straight out of Minneapolis, yay!) I was immediately taken with the fabulous Roman shades. Not only that whimsical fabric (by Cowtan & Tout), but the curved detail and beautiful trim at the base. Of course the wall color (Benjamin Moore “Azores” AF-495) only makes it that much better! Ooh, and that ottoman...love! Check out Annie's site here, but for more good stuff head over to her blog!

Another Dreamy Sleeping Nook




Talk about a lucky girl! Thanks to Sweet Home Style, I didn't miss seeing this adorable space that Apartment Therapy featured belonging to Mary, who is now a freshman in college. When she was young she never wanted to sleep in her own bed. As a solution, her mom and aunt decided to build her this special little sleeping nook for her 8th birthday. Even though the room has a childish feel, she says she never grew out of it. Understandably Mary was recently devastated to learn her parents were selling her childhood home, but was comforted knowing that the family moving in had two little girls who were mesmerized by the beautiful and cozy room. I don't blame them...it's truly mesmerizing, isn't it? Love those floors and ceiling too!

Eastcliff Summerhouse





I was delighted to find this cute cottage on sfgirlbybay! Another gem from Light Locations, this little summerhouse is situated on a pond in the Isle of Wight. Ever since I was little I've wanted my own little secluded cottage in the woods, just waiting for me to escape to. This one is perfect! View more pics here!
