It was one of those weekends that was so filled with activity I didn’t sit down. All of it was good, we had a lot of friends and family popping in and several family obligations to attend to, also I spent two nights out on the town, and with all the activity I could barely catch my breath. I meant to post this Saturday but my weekend got away from me. Anyway… here goes another round of ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ featuring a few favorite spaces and projects spied around the web.
Stephanie at Cre8tive Designs remodeled a kitchen with white IKEA cabinets, it’s such a dramatic difference from the before!
It’s going to rain for a week straight starting tomorrow. I have no complaints we need the water out here on the west coast, but I am anxiously awaiting warmer weather and long summer nights spent lingering outdoors.
Taking a nap outdoors feels like such a luxury. Actually, taking any kind of nap feels like a luxury :) But one stolen outdoors is extra special, I insist on one whenever I go someplace warm on vacation, I affiliate an outdoor nap with ultimate relaxation.
We have a large sofa in our courtyard but it’s hard to catch zzzs there since the space is pelted with afternoon sun in the summer. My neighbors have an outdoor bed I envy, it’s a carved wood bed that has weathered over time, and she dresses it in exotic textiles and colorful pillows every summer. Their yard is so inviting, I await my annual invitation to share sangria just so I can lounge on that outdoor bed. My neighbor tells me she’s fallen asleep on it countless times on summer evenings while her husband strums his guitar in an adjacent chair. Isn’t that the most romantic lovely thought?
We saw a lot of outdoor beds on our trip to Fiji, destination resorts with views excel in the lure of the outdoor bed. Enclosure + mattress + pillows = bliss.
