Pairing back the layers in time for summer

The window fabric was feeling a little too earthy for me , a little drab, so in preparation for the summer weather that I am sure is upon us I decided to peel back and refresh the feeling of the room by removing the fabric overlay to expose the linen look light and airy romans , immediately the room lightened up .

I love this view of the little playhouse , it is like backyard jewelry.

Those blue chairs in the backyard have been calling me these days , lots of outdoor work to be done.
One more month of school than it is summer fun time , a new above ground affordable pool is in our future , I am imagining me skimming the pool daily , wow what was I thinking ? , oh yeah the kids.

Love the look. And that little fuzzy ball trim is just the right amount of playfulness :)
