Pale Pink

Pale pink is trending right now…  Maybe it’s just in my head.  But if y’all don’t like these pale pink pretties then you don’t know what’s good. ;)

Rockin Moroccan

I just bought this rug from Ikea a few weeks ago.  It fits perfectly next to my bed.  My feet love landing on it first thing when I get out of bed in the morning.  Especially in this cold weather.

If I had more rooms in my apartment I would definitely want to invest in one of West Elm‘s Moroccan inspired rugs for my living room (and move my sisal rug to another room).  And I would walk around barefoot all the time.

And they even have a few rugs that are handmade in Morocco…

On a side note, I continue to be impressed by the new designs that West Elm has come out with recently.  [I even devoted a blog post to it! And mentioned their pretty lighting in another post.]

Anyway, let’s look at some rooms that rock Moroccan rugs…

Those Moroccans make some pretty funky rugs, don’t they?

Barcelona Chair

When I was in college I took a lighting class.  One of our biggest projects was to design and build a lamp.  The lamp design had to be inspired by something else – a piece of furniture, an animal, an object, whatever, I can’t remember… Anyway, I chose to base my lamp design off of the Barcelona Chair.  The Barcelona Chair is probably one of the most famous chairs ever designed.  It was designed by Mies van der Rohe for Knoll 85 years ago.   I wish I still had a picture of the lamp.  It was probably the most frustrating project I ever had in college. My poor mom helped me with it (thanks, Mom!). I wish I had a picture of it.  Actually I’m glad that I don’t because it wasn’t my best work and it would just frustrate me to look at because I nearly pulled my hair out trying to put it together.

I would love to own a Barcelona chair one day, if I ever have $5000 to spare.  A vintage one would be even more amazing.  The value of the chair will only increase with time.  Barcelona chairs are kind of like tulip tables because they are classic contemporary pieces that can be incorporated into traditional or modern spaces.  I’m not crazy about any of these pictures but you get the idea…

I also love the ottomans… How chic do this pair look in this closet?  What a perfect place to sit and put your shoes on.

Cafe Curtains

Cafe curtains are a great way to add privacy without blocking a pretty view or natural light.  We’ve used them often in bathrooms.  I just love the look!

A makeover!

Summerfield has a new look!  What do y’all think?  It was sort of an impulsive decision that I made on Friday.  I’ve had the thought in the back of my head for a while, but I decided to go ahead and make a change – it has been a year after all!  Hopefully there will be more pretty changes for Summerfield in the near future.  Any feedback is appreciated, as always :)  Let me remind you that I am definitely not a computer/blogging expert despite the fact that I’ve had this blog for over a year.  There are so many things I still don’t know how to do.  And I’ve had no help from anyone else… except for one of the computer technicians that works with my dad (he kindly helped me with the picture logo – it took him no time at all to do what I had been trying to figure out for days).

And now for a photo of the day.

Red and Pink

In honor of yesterday being Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d share some lovely pink and red pretties.  Actually, I forgot to make a post for Valentine’s Day.  I wish I could say I’m still getting used to this blogging thing, but that doesn’t work anymore since Summerfield is more than one year old (still can’t can’t believe it!  I still feel challenged in the blogging area… maybe you can tell, haha).  Therefore, no excuses.  I will remember my Hallmark holidays and plan my blog posts accordingly from now on ;)

By the way, this is my Valentine.  He is the sweetest, cutest, most loving Valentine in the whole world!  His name is Gus and I’m so sad we didn’t spend Valentine’s Day together.  XO

Happy Anniversary!

On Saturday, I got a surprising notification from WordPress congratulating me for one year of this blog.  I can’t believe it has been an entire year (I honestly thought the anniversary was in March… oops).  I don’t really know how to celebrate except to share some pretty design pictures with you.  Enjoy!

Lee Radziwell

For those of you who have been following my blog since the beginning, you are aware of my infatuation with Jackie Kennedy Onassis (really the whole Kennedy family).  Through all of my reading and learning about Jackie and her family, I honestly don’t know much about Lee Radziwell, her younger sister.  I’ve always thought that Lee was very private.  I was so excited to read T Magazine‘s article and interview of her (I heard about the article on Habitually Chic, one of my favorite blogs).  Lee and Jackie were pretty different, but they both have that timeless style about them.

I loved watching the video of her being interviewed.  I can’t believe she’s 79 years old.

Obviously, the best part was seeing her Paris apartment.

If you want to read an awesome, informative post about Lee, check out Cote de Texas, where there are pictures of all of Lee’s homes over the years.  I love that she has kept so much of her furniture, accessories, and art over all these years.  It just confirms what Miles said.  Except I bet Lee didn’t cry when she bought the best.
