things I like this week

1.  Ballard Designs has striped sheets that are perfect for summer. I like the ties on the duvet.

2. The grey wallpaper stripes in this foyer paired with a white painted staircase and sharp black banister has a Hamptons feel.

3. What a pretty spring rustic table with apple blossoms.

4. I would love to catch a glimpse of this curious looking shore bird with an upturned beak along the coast, it is an American Avocet. We have been enjoying bird watching in the Low Country.

5.  We brought this sweet bouquet home from the farmer's market last weekend....scabiosa, coreopsis and sweet peas.

6.  A delicious twist on a margarita, add St Germain liqueur, recipe here. 

7.  Stripes are always perfect on the floor of a coastal house, these are from Ballard Designs.

8. We want to add casual hooks in our foyer. The white walls, cute totes and vintage horse painting make this peg rack special.

9. West Elm makes these striped sheets, add a monogram for a preppy touch.

Are you a fan of stripes like I am. Isn't everyone? They are perfect for warm weather living.

Thanks for visiting!


  1. Can I tell you how much I've missed these posts ~ not only are they so pretty, but you have exquisite taste and I always see something new to me that I love! Thanks cute friend!!

  2. Yes, I'm a fan :) Using lots of stripes and ticking in Maine. BTW, I hope you and Arvind will visit Castine again. We'd love to host you. xo

  3. You really can't go wrong with stripes! I also like dots of all kinds; the Garnet Hill dot sheets are our favorite. And a favorite for striped rugs is Dash & Albert!

  4. I like the striped foyer next to the staircase. It gives a nice cool effect for the summer. The black of the railing is a good contrast too. I could really use this idea in my house.
