Nesting at the Table!

I set a new Summer table. I wanted to use my hydrangea napkin rings and they go so well with the runner. So, since the runner has birds, a nesting table was made. I also wanted to use these new placemats that I just love!
 I gathered a white napkin with a yellow embroidered flower and blue edge with a plain yellow one.
 The placemat is topped with a clear glass charger, yellow dinner plate, blue and yellow salad and a nest!
 

 Isn't this placemat wonderful?!
 My blue goblets make another appearance. 2 pots with nests are on each side of the centerpiece.
 I kept this runner on the table.

 For the centerpiece I placed a small twiggy wreath that looks like a nest under a large blue bird.


 The bird S and P are in a nest basket.



 I bought some. fresh flowers one day last week so added them to the table

 When the sun made a SHORT appearance, I got some shots!

A New Summer Coffee table vignette

Good Morning! As you read this we are in the Outer Banks, NC with our family. So far little Colleen is having a ball!! Actually I can't keep calling her little Colleen as she is growing like a weed!!!! Before we left a did a new vignette on the coffee table for Summer. I wanted to share it with you today. I brought this water bearer guy from the sofa table. I love the soft colors for summer.
 This saki bottle
has the same similar colors.
 3 shells at this corner of the basket/tray. I like to corral my vignette on a tray or in a basket.
 This is the other one of the lanterns in the set.
 A simple, serene vignette for summer.


 I brought out the jar pillows and added some new pillows.
 I found these blue leopard print pillows months ago but saved them for summer. I LOVE them!

 My blue koi pillow will always be here in the summer.
 I also have had this gold, coral embroidered pillow for years. It is great on this chair.


Thanks for your visit!!! We will be enjoying the sun, surf, pool and lots of good meals. And making wonderful memories. That's what vacation is all about.
XO, Pinky

A Summer Vignette on the Hearth

I am starting to spread some touches of summer around the house. I am using my LARGE collection of shells, placed here and there as a nod to summer. Simple changes take the hearth from Spring to summer. The birds and nests have been taken away and replaced by some shells.
 I added some shells to the lantern, inside and on top.
 The basket still has the greens ring and I replaced the nest with a starfish.
 On the pedestal is another shell, a nautilus.
 2 large shells are on each end.

 The wooden lanterns are on a remote and a timer so they come on several times each evening.
 A favorite shell on top of the lantern, which also is on a timer.


 It doesn't take a lot to take a room from one season to the next. Our weather sure is summer: 3 days of mid and high 90's!
 
Thanks for your visit. It is supposed to be a little cooler today so I hope to get to the pool for awhile. I hope you have a wonderful day!!!
XO, Pinky

Master Bedroom Sitting Area

Good morning my friends. We are having a heat wave, and it has been HOT! I got to the pool yesterday for the first day this season. I sat with my feet in the water most of the time and only lasted a couple of hours.
I shared the master decorated for summer in my last post so am now sharing the sitting area. I have gone for a sort of "British Colonial" vibe in here, as it is a look I have always loved.  Some of the elements of this design are dark woods, rattan and wicker, a touch of the tropics in plants, fabrics and textures, palm trees etc. So this is what I have done. This pillow was purchased many years ago in Fl. I tried to find a match but couldn't.
 On this side of the love seat I have a faux palm in a large wooden vase, a metal lantern, a rattan candle stick with a greens ball on it, the lion and a starfish for a nod to summer.
 The love seat is a favorite piece of mine. We bought it when we moved in here for this spot.

 The footstool is from India and was inherited from my in-laws. The brass and mahogany lamp was a gift from our son.
 The palm tree lamp on this table was purchased in Florida many years ago also.

The artwork above the love seat is a palm tree print that came from the old house.

 I have 2 of these bird and bamboo plates on each side of the windows. They are held by a metal bamboo plate holder.
 I aimed a spotlight on this one to show the detail of the plate holder.

 Candle holders do not always have to hold candles! This is a much better idea for the look I am going for.
 This monkey candle holder is another favorite piece.
 While I was taking photos the other day the birds must have been trying to see what I was doing:):)
 You can also see some of the detail of the brass on the floor lamp in this shot.
 I really think these might have been baby birds that just left the nest and are living in the bush under this window:)
Thanks for your visit.
XO, Pinky
