Friday Finds...I love wallcovering {or paper} whichever you prefer...

Lately I've been loving Katie Ridder's leaf + seaweed wallpaper!
Perfect for a nursery or girl's {your} room!

Another project + I would love your help!

Your basic sunbrella fabric

Brighter Turquoise

If an interior designer isn't working on someone else's projects, {he or she} is usually in the throws of a personal creative venture. Back in July as a rookie blogger, I did one of my first posts on the chair below. I found these on my way to the beach one day. I screamed to my husband "stop the car". This isn't a rare occurrence in our lives, as I often find myself picking up stranger's castaways. None the less, he still thinks I'm out of my mind.

I loved the bamboo detailing of these tired chairs. The bottom photo is what they originally looked like. I have since painted one glossy black and now need to choose an outdoor fabric for all seven of them.

That's where you come in!! I can't decide what to do. My choices are above. I love the idea of doing a simple solid turquoise, or maybe even yellow but apart of me thinks the quirky bright green bird print might be fun!! {The website touts it as being very "high-end", whatever that means in the outdoor fabric world - softer I guess} WHAT DO YOU THINK? Oh and these fabrics are all well priced, I don't want to spend a fortune on fabric. I look forward to your thoughts!

Where I'd like to...

I've been very into crisp contrasts lately. Navy blue and white is one of my favorite summer color combos. These two rooms in this vacation home would suit me just fine!
This is a rug, but how cool would it look to paint navy and white stripes on a floor?

I'm guessing most of my reader's receive or purchase Elle Decor. I've been smitten with June's issue all week. It's the best I've seen from them in a while!! If you haven't seen this month's issue. Here's a peek. Enjoy and happy Memorial Day weekend.{I can't tell you how thrilled I am that Summer is just around the corner} These are all summer homes mind you. I'd love to reside in any of these spaces YEAR round!

I love the graphic qualities of pattern and color in this home!

Southhampton {as well}

On the opposite spectrum from the above home. I equally love the
use of natural color and materials in this home!
