Rain, Rain, Go Away!

I was hoping to have a gorgeous tan right now, after spending my 4th of July break here:

Elle Decor #pool #summer

But that did not work out as I planned.  I ended up spending zero time in the sun because it rained in Atlanta for about six days straight.   At least the rain kept the temperatures down (good for our plants and power bills)!

I’m praying for sun this weekend, what about ya’ll?

Lotus Love

I think I’ve mentioned in a previous post that my new obsession is this Galbraith & Paul wallpaper:

 

It is called “Lotus” and the colorway pictured above is Aqua.  I adore it.  But this pattern is not the only chic pattern that I love from Galbraith & Paul…

 

 

“Birds” is adorable too!!  And these patterns come in multiple colorways!    Color Sage is pictured above and color Ocean is below – and that’s just 2 of the 10 colorways.  How cute?!  How could I ever choose????

 

 

Did I mention that they come in fabrics too?  Ugh, I better start saving $$$!!!  Or else I’ll just drool over these pictures until something else steals my heart away.

Yep, that is Lotus in Pink and Orange (“Tangerine”).  Now where do I get the dress to match? 

 

How perfect are these colors for summer???

Beach Bound

Countdown to spending a whole week at the beach: 4 days!!!  And I cannot wait.  I used to think that living far away from the beach was a good thing because it made beach vacations more special.  Not anymore.  Now I’m convinced I would be perfectly fine living near the beach.  I would never take it for granted.  Maybe one day I’ll make this dream a reality.

Of course I would have these Graham & Green chairs in my breakfast room:

 

 

Or else I would have some bistro chairs like the ones in this dining area designed by Ashley Whitaker:

 

 

I love the pendants in the kitchen below…

 

 

But we all know I can’t resist my beloved Hicks pendants:

 

 

 

I would put these adorable Vineyard Striped Rugs from Ballard Designs in the hallways on hardwood floors…

 

A beach house isn’t complete without an outdoor shower.  How awesome is this one?

 

 

I love this driftwood lamp for a beach house — not sure where its from though.

 

 

 

 

Orkney chairs are very beachy in my opinion, of course my dream beach house has at least one…

 

 

 

 

I would probably go with this AMAZING Lotus wallpaper by Galbraith & Paul in one of the bathrooms… Seriously, this wallpaper is like my new favorite thing EVER.

Still enjoying a little piece of heaven…

On Tuesday, my parents made one of their dreams come true by purchasing this little piece of heaven on Monteagle mountain…

I cannot wait to share more pictures because it is GORGEOUS here! The cabin is located in Sewanee, Tennessee, on the ridge of Monteagle mountain, which is about an hour from Chattanooga. I don’t know how I’ll be able to leave here tomorrow :(

Goal for the weekend: to not melt

The temperature in Atlanta is expected to be around 107 degrees this weekend… Shoot me now.  I am miserable in hot weather.  I literally melt.  I love the sun but not when it feels like I’m on fire.  You can find me inside in the air conditioning all weekend long.  Although I wish I could be enjoying the great outdoors.  What I wouldn’t give for a pool in my backyard to just sit in allll dayyy loooong.   But a pool might just feel like a hot tub in these scorching temperatures.  If I ever have a pool, I’ll be sure to look at these pictures as inspiration…

And I’ll be drinking one (or like four) of these to forget about how insanely hot it is:
