Totally my favorite summer picture book. It's on the top of one stack of books. Easy reach.

2nd favorite "Little Retreats" by Jane Tidbury. Sweet.

Dear Pamela,
I L-O-V-E these....is it Lloyd Loom ? It really looks like it.
I'm so sorry if I've missed some of your posts. The more people that I put on my sidebar...the harder it is to get round to everyone !! When I went to my sisters for a week, I got all behind and I don't seem to have caught up !! We are going to Italy next week, so I'll be having to catch up again !!. Hopefully I shall be back on track this side of Christmas !!!! hehe. XXXX

Beautiful set. Wish you weren't on the other side of the country!
Have a look at the Victorian gems on my shore line. If you are a fan of family houses by the sea you will adore this architecture:

Pam -- My husband and I LOVE this book. If I were to choose only one book for sea-design inspiration this would be it. The houses they feature are just incredible!

Maman de trois petit rois said...

love, love, that book... sometimes I look through it on a cold, windy, February day and it's like a mini vacay.

Love the color. Simply Beautiful!

Something else reminds me of summer like nothing, the breeze blowing through the shutters into a beautiful beach house, lined with furniture like the ones you have on display in this post. I gravitate towards it. I came across your post this afternoon while browsing interior design blogs and the topic of window treatment selection was very interesting to me. It is true that you must dress your windows appropriately to bring out their true beauty.
