Summertime Summerfine

“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.” 

― Henry James

How shallow is too shallow… Manu Bovet, outer islands Tahiti…

“I know I am but summer to your heart, and not the full four seasons of the year.”

“The animal merely makes a bed, which he warms with his body in a sheltered place; but man, having discovered fire, boxes up some air in a spacious apartment, and warms that, instead of robbing himself, makes that his bed, in which he can move about divested of more cumbrous clothing, maintain a kind of summer in the midst of winter, and by means of windows even admit the light and with a lamp lengthen out the day.” 

― Henry David Thoreau

Elsa Hosk

I fell for her in summer, my lovely summer girl,From summer she is made, my lovely summer girl,
I’d love to spend a winter with my lovely summer girl,
But I’m never warm enough for my lovely summer girl,
It’s summer when she smiles, I’m laughing like a child,
It’s the summer of our lives; we’ll contain it for a while
She holds the heat, the breeze of summer in the circle of her hand
I’d be happy with this summer if it’s all we ever had.” 

― Maggie Stiefvater, Shiver

5 Glamorous Bedrooms

Is it time for you to add a little spice in the bedroom? 

Here are 5 fabulous and oh so glamorous bedrooms to inspire you, enjoy.

Yes, I love this one.

A pared-down palette tempers the theatricality of the four-poster canopy bed, creating a space that is equal parts serene and dramatic. While all the pieces are ones you’d expect to find in a bedroom—headboard, bedside tables, lamps, bench—each features dramatic or exotic details that when combined add up to a truly dreamy room to retreat to at the end of the day.

Matching wallpaper and drapes can be modern, says Fawn. “I took that classic idea and did it with a cutting-edge pattern, Timorous Beasties’ Iguana.” Using the pattern in multiple colorways makes for a more layered look.

Corrigan:“Upholstering a bedroom cuts sound and creates a very cozy, intimate feeling.”

Total WOW Factor!

Designer Jeffrey Bilhuber

Dressed in Cote Bosque damask by Owens & Perry, Jeffrey’s bedroom is a riot of pattern on pattern. “Red fills it with atmosphere and dignity,” says Jeffrey. “It’s the opposite of poky. I wanted it to confirm my sense of place and pride—this is where the master is at home.”
