Splash into Summer!

From modern to traditional...there's nothing like a "cool" pool to jump start the summer season. Here are a few that make us want to dive right in...

After a long, cold winter, we could all use a few lazy days by the pool to lift our spirits. Below is mine, and where you'll find me most afternoons.

In honor of the season, check out "Pools," a hardcover book, which looks great on the coffee table and makes a great gift. Originally $75, now $55. Contact to purchase.

We are thrilled to share photos from one of our all time favorite interior designers, Amanda Nisbet. Her style is top-of-the-line chic, and right up our alley. We love how she pairs colors and mixes the modern with the traditional. Amanda was nice enough to let us showcase her work throughout our website to help everyday people like you and me get ideas on how to make our homes fabulous. How lucky are we? Here are few of our favorites spaces, that happen to feature one of our favorite vendors, Oly Studio.

Less is More

Sometimes all it takes is one new item to freshen up your surroundings. Much like shopping for your wardrobe and updating your look with a new pair of shoes or belt, the same holds true for your home. One new rug, lamp or chair can make all the difference when it comes to keeping things current. And in economic times like these, that's good news for all of us.

Luckily our favorite design aesthetic is clean and simple; here are some examples to get you thinking...

Zebra rug ties it all together. These Dining chairs small on budget, big on style. Desk and chair in a simple white bedroom with touches of light blue. Love it!

All white kitchen with touches of green light fixtures make it fresh!
