Schumacher’s Citrus Garden print is another all time favorite of mine, like Samarkand which I talked about here. Every time I’m in the Schumacher showroom pulling fabrics for work I always end up looking at Citrus Garden – it’s just such a fun, happy print. I have a fabric swatch of it at home that I’m keeping in the hopes of one day using it in my future house. I think it would be just so pretty in a kitchen as either a built in bench cushion or some sort of window covering. It’s quite a bold fabric so I think I’d keep everything else quite neutral, though I do like how Taylor Jacobsen used the fabric on a pillow in this room which is already pretty busy. Doesn’t it look great?
I also love how the fabric is used as an incredibly chic tablecloth in one of the images below – isn’t that amazing? I’m kind of tempted now to get some to make into pretty napkins or something. A couple of Etsy shops sell pillows made in both colorways of the print; this bolster pillow would make a perfect pop of color and pattern in a kitchen nook or on an armchair. Thoughts? Do you love it as much as I do? Have a good day!
There’s something so appealing about a lived in space that looks collected rather than decorated, and this former YWCA summer camp turned sprawling Northern California homeis a prime example. Per the Elle Decor article, the first time the couple was shown the space they couldn’t wrap their heads around the amount of work needed and just walked out, but ended up feeling a pull and that they had to own the space. I kind of feel like that about the little beach house we’re planning (hoping? the landlord still hasn’t given us a lease to sign) to move into in a few weeks, it’s like I need to live there and have become a little bit obsessed!
The thing that’s so neat about this house in my opinion is that a lot of it actually had to be built new but the end result flows so perfectly and everything looks like it’s been there forever. The decor is a great mix of flea market finds, gorgeous fabrics (there are a few from Raoul, a really amazing textile company based out of Santa Barbara) and playful accessories which creates an overall effect that looks chic but still cozy and livable. My favorite room in the house would have to be the built in window seat (a few images down). Doesn’t it look like the ideal place to curl up with a book and a cup of coffee?

I have a pretty serious new obsession with beaded chandeliers. I absolutely love the picture above – isn’t that just the chicest little breakfast nook you’ve ever seen? It’s so light and bright and pretty, and the statement chandelier is what makes the space pop, in my opinion. Unfortunately, these gorgeous chandeliers can be extremely expensive; the creme de la creme in the beaded chandelier world are the creations made by Ro Sham Beaux, which run at around $4000. Luckily, there are some really great versions out there that are much less expensive and equally as chic. Some of the best ones I found actually come from the kids sections on interior sites; Pottery Barn Kids makes this really pretty one (only $199), and I saw this one in person at RH Baby & Child the other day, which is a bit pricer but stunning.
