Between the heat and the rain I'm completely beat - much in need of a nap....This bed looks perfect for the moment.

When I think about seersucker the below image is the first thing that comes to me...seersucker suits are a classic, fresh look in the southern summer heat. But, what about seersucker in the bedroom?
Matouk has a great collection of seersucker bed linens - The coverlets are whisper thin and perfect for summer nights. These would also make great additions to beach homes.
Or, you could simply go for a cool robe in soft colors like white, petal, willow, truffle or blue. It also packs well since it's supposed to be a bit wrinkled and crinkled.
Just be sure to have plenty of this on hand...
Wishing you all a REFRESHING weekend!

Hellooooo gorgeous. This pink room is certainly not for a little girl. I fell in love with this Marblehead weekend home featured in the June's Traditional Home. The entire home is a wonderful combination of soothing clean lines and vibrant colored fabrics. My favorite room, however, is the bedroom. How amazing is this Niermann Weeks iron canopy bed? You get the canopy vibe while keeping things light and open. But the colors, oh those colors...
Here...Take a closer look. The Boston design duo responsible for this room is clearly a fan of Alan Campbell textiles. The "Criss Cross" wallpaper pairs perfectly with the "Saya Gata" fabric used on the shams and table skirt. Recognize the large throw pillow?
The crisp white bathroom stands out against Cowtan and Tout's "Mardale" wallpaper.
The cabana room is sumptuous in soothing shades of pinks, whites and browns.

For the past year or so I've been particularly fond of over sized boudoir pillows centered on the bed. Typical boudoir pillows are 12" x 16" with some slightly larger at 14" x 20." My favorite, however, are the really big sizes (minimum size of 16" x 28"). Think of the length of a standard pillow and about 60% of the height. For a king size bed you can certainly go even larger. A few of my favorite images:

The best thing about early summer in Atlanta? The hydrangeas.
Driving around this afternoon I couldn't help but take in the abundance of the beautiful blooms. There are pink ones...
and white ones. But best of all...
The blue ones!
Speaking of Blue Hydrangeas, if you haven't already you MUST check out one of my favorite blogs, aptly named Blue Hydrangea. I love the new features of readers rooms. Hop on over!
A couple of great yards covered in blue hydrangeas.
Have a very happy weekend!!
