The sweltering dog days of summer are here which makes night time the right time to be outside. While it may be too hot to be outside during the day there is every reason to be outdoors once that fireball sun sinks behind the horizon. Imagine how fancy you'll be enjoying cinema al fresco while you luxuriate on your open-air daybed rather than sitting inside on the couch watching tv in your sweats.
It's all about context, baby.
We're anticipating the coming of Fall and dreaming of cooler days and longer nights. Slate blue has been drawing our attention lately; it's that perfect combination of cozy yet still refreshing. Maybe it's because it is reminiscent of the much needed dark storm clouds that have not been seen here in California for several years now. Wait! I think we may have just set the world record as the first interior design firm to be inspired by the drought! Bring it, El Niño!
Whatever the case is, we're smitten with this color.

We wouldn't be so eager to hit the snooze button if we had this delightful breakfast nook filled with wit and charm to welcome us each morning. This room is all about the juxtaposition of the pieces in it. We have polkadots, stripes, watercolor florals and a geometric motif all mixed with the kooky Fornasetti wall plates. Even though we have lots of different patterns going on here, it all works because of the calm color palette. That's worth getting up a little extra early!
