Decorating & Design
July 19, 2010
Well, guys, I’m on vacation. I’m filing this blog early because, when you read this, I will be deep in the throes of rest and relaxation. Summer is a busy time at House & Home (Christmas in July anyone?) so I’m going to relish my lack of schedule. Instead I will:
Take walks around the neighbourhood and get inspired by dream houses like this. This is actually my neighbour’s place!
Dip my feet in a stream (also near my place)…
Take a stroll in my local park… and maybe bring a picnic lunch…
Savour the sweetness of some local produce. These are Ontario strawberries in a vintage dish. Love the fresh green and berry red together, don’t you? Click here for some delicious strawberry recipes.
Enjoy the fruits of my gardening labour. These annual salvias came from my garden. Also, I just painted this room Farrow & Ball’s Teresa’s Green (236), and I’m loving it!
Ahhhh summer vacation…
