Which are you?

A decorating discussion with a friend the other day leads me to this question... Which style fits you?

Do you prefer more simple, perhaps tailored, matching design where everything has a place a purpose and is clean?


Or do you prefer eclectic design, where things don't necessarily match but they go together...different styles fused into one room..."anthropologie-esque"?

I personally am a mix of both. In master bedrooms, I like symmetry and clean lines and a simple color palette. Bathrooms I feel the same. But in all other rooms I like to mix it rooms, living rooms etc.... it is fun to play with pattern, color, old and new, and quirky unexpected items.

Seeking shade

Summer is here in Carlsbad.....finally! Good-bye June gloom and hello sizzling sunshine! I hope you all beat the heat this weekend and seek some shade ( or pools and beaches to cool down). Here are a few 'shady' outdoor spaces to dream about while sipping some cool lemonade.

Happy weekend!

La Jolla shops

We are moving in a month, and I have made a list of all my favorite things to do in the more. I am hoping to get to them all one more time before we say good-bye.

One of those places is La Jolla. It is incredibly overcrowded in the summertime, but what are you gonna do? It is crowded everywhere in Southern California in the summertime.

Thanks to the direction of Caitlin Creer Interiors, I popped in a few new decor stores (Etceteras and Girard Avenue Collection). They had lots of great finds! A bit overpriced (especially because you can get antiques for way cheaper near my hometown in MD) but lots of fun to browse!

LOVE the train station posters....these are of our very own San Fran (was our own and will be again in a month) and San Diego surf spots. One day I will reproduce it myself....

I have yet to see the movie, but I thought this was pretty funny and am curious to see where in the movie the store (Seaside Home) shows up.

How cute would this be as a dresser in a kids room?

In light of summertime, beach cities, and fabulous antique are some inspiration photos for a beach house. We can dream, right?
