Ok...so we know that Autumn is just around the corner ...but as much as I am looking forward to cosying up the place by introducing warmer tones and textures ...
I just don't think I'm quite ready to let go of Summer...
Especially not after seeing this super gorgeous little Summer lakeside cottage which belongs to stylist Jenn Cranston.
Jenn was able to keep costs down by purchasing some key pieces at Ikea and others from inexpensive vintage shops.
Objects from nature ..like sculptural branches, driftwood, palm fronds, and even bowls of fresh fruits are such an easy way to add a beachy vibe at little or no cost.She also added a few special pieces like the Mexican textiles made into cushions, a vintage lamp, and favorite pottery to really make the tranquil space sing.
Would you believe that she created the headboard for the master bed from a bamboo screen...purchased at Ikea...yup..thats right!
This rattan lamp shade...again..an Ikea purchase!
A little cramped but so long as its well equipped with all
the little necessities..like alcohol and ice... thats all you need right? ; )
Ubber Ubber gorgeous.
