SUMMER DAYS FILLED WITH COLOURS AND DECOR

Hello!Finally it seems that we’re well placed in our brand new home, I’m satisfied! Summer is arrived and, as you surely know, I’m in a good mood ’cause it’s my favourite season of the year: I never get tired of sun, sea and sunsets. Of course also in our home we could bring a little piece of summer… how? With the ideas that i found searching on the magazines and in Internet, they’re quite simple after all, but really suggestive!
Since I was a child, for me summer was strictly connected to searching seashells on the seashore… and with my mother, I took the habit to collect them, and store them in small pots on the cupboard.

Small pots of fruit compote are perfect for build some homemade decoration: I use often sand (also coloured), pebbles, pieces or cutted rope, seashells, starfish, and so on…isn’t it a stylish and simple decor idea?

Also building a starfish and seashells garland is a good idea: you can place it on a door, on a panel in a corridor, as centerpiece…and also you’ll not miss your souvenirs of some special holidays.

Like always, cushions are great protagonist of our home: why not refresh our home style with brand new “marine” cushion? I found these on “Pottery Barn”site, they have a bunch of beautiful decorations: really inspiring, I’m all worked up in these days thinking at the best choices for my own home.

Surfing on the net, i found also some beautiful vases, with the colours of the waves of the ocean, they reminds me to last year in Fuerteventura: i’m totally in love with them. They’re really elegant and in different shapes.

In the end, last but not least, the original navy, or coastal style must have some blue-striped element: beautiful carpets and cushions, but also bedcovers and curtains, to recreate a piece of seaside in a corner of our home: soo relaxing and refreshing!
