Bougainvillea Love :)

How are you doing? My apologies for missing in action. I have family over from England and its been super busy. We are having an incredible time! Summer is such a great time to just slow down, enjoy some family time and spend time outdoors. We are going through heat wave which I am not enjoying at all. 
Seattle is not geared up for this kind of weather and we are baking :) However, the views are gorgeous. The skies are blue, the lakes are sparkling, the days are endless....the mountains look picture perfect and the sunsets are magnificent :)

 I wanted to share a few images of this stunning 15th Anniversary party featured on Style Me Pretty!. A party with a Mexican flair and pretty bougainvilleas. I could not help but smile as I went through all the images. Do you have a flower that reminds you of a special time or special someone?? For me, bougainvilleas remind me of my childhood. I spent many years in Rajasthan and bougainvilleas were the only flowers we ever saw. The pink and red hues dazzled against the sandy backdrop. I always feel nostalgic when I see them. You can see clearly why I am drawn to the pretty vignettes and spaces below! 

What is the flower that fills your head with memories??

MDC Summer Series : A Renovated Spanish Farmhouse

Happy Tuesday! I have a lot on my plate these days and therefore it been hard for me to be regular with my posts. However, I have not forgotten my summer home series and this home fits that description perfectly :) 

 We are in Spain at a renovated farmhouse with my favorite elements...white washed walls, exposed beams, rustic elegance, vintage charm and just about everything I adore :) Its the little touches in a home that call out to me,  and this one oozes charm, warmth and character. 

I feel like I could step into this space and unwind instantly. A beautiful summer escape....filled with flower and light!

These are a Few Of My Favorite Things Part 1 : Vintage Tea Posters

I have been a busy bee off late :) With the kids school getting over soon..... its been a series of play dates, tea parties, breakfast mornings.......you get the drift. I have been meaning to share these images for a while so here goes..... 

If you remember a few months ago, I had talked about creating a space in my home with the theme" these are a few of my favorite things" Remember the song from Sound of Music? I have watched that movie a gazillion times. I even went on the Sound of Music tour in Salzburg, Austria :) 
The room is slowly coming together! It has antique store finds, renovated furniture, pretty plants, it showcases my love for tea, photography, travel and has a few personal treasures. The room sounds fancier than it looks but I am pleased with the result :)

 Here is a quick peak into what the space is filled with. I took a few pictures with my phone of the vintage tea posters that are up on the wall. I hope to share the entire room next week. Its personal, its quirky and its all about me :) Go on.... quickly make a  list of ten of your favorite things. Think of the possibilities :) Watch how quicklyyour space will come together. trust me, no design ideas or design trends are required :)
