Summer Homes on MDC

Its getting to be that time of the year again....the countdown to summer :) Here in the Pacific Northwest that means short lived....abundant sunshine, happy faces, scenic drives and so much more. I am bringing back the " Summer Home" series on My Dream Canvas. Every week I shall share with you one home that epitomises a summer home for me!

On another note, I am doing up a corner of my home. For once, I have a theme... " These Are A Few of My Favorite Things."  Any "Sound of Music" fans out there ? Stay tuned to see what I mean !!

I will announce the Suzani coaster Giveaway winner later today!!

Design Crush : Designer Lauren Soloff's Home

I love my share of patterns and textiles. However while too much of everything looks divine on paper and in print, for my home home I tend to be a wee bit more conservative :) When a room looks too busy it unsettles me!!

I like texture and colors in layers with a backdrop that makes it pop. I love it when a few pieces draw your attention! For me this room with the stunning rug and the pretty greens against the whitewashed walls are just perfect. My crush of course is on that table :)

The room has as the article rightly said " an unstudied look" which is everlasting and so refreshing! You can view detailed pictures of the home Here

What do you think? How much is too much for you??

Life's Little Moments!

Sometimes a crazy day takes a different turn when you spot something around you that makes you smile. In that instant, that little moment/gesture makes you take a deep breath and you instantly feel relaxed! Even if its brief it can be a wonderful feeling :) 

I have Justina Blakeney's new book " The New Bohemians" sitting pretty on my coffee table. I stopped to admire it as the light came filtering through my windows. This is a lovely book filled with tonnes of inspiration and ideas! I am having so much fun reading this book and admiring the wonderful homes and images captured in this book! 

Have you read it??

On another note, the other reason for my lethargy is this delightful cabin! Its pretty, right? I am missing it a lot! We spent three nights here last week. It was a cabin filled with 6 adults and 6 children. We were there with some of our closest friends and it was a blast. Fun and relaxing..... the best part was listening to the children run around and laugh endlessly :) 

It was therapeutic to get away and just be around people who you are most comfortable with! The cabin was lovely and the views were wonderful! Okay, I need to stop now and head back to work....

See Ya later!

I shall get this sorted out soon!! For now, do enjoy these lovely images from my archives of a delightful Georgian home featured in Period Living. UK.
