the textures of summer

I’m so happy that summer’s officially here!

I love pulling out textural pieces
to accessorize the house,
so today it’s all about looking for
new inspirational ways to
change things up a bit at home.

Bamboo, wicker, raffia, seagrass, sisal and burlap
are great ways to add a
 little dimension to your decor.

Isn’t it fab how tropical houseplants
can instantly put you in a summer mood?

And bright and cheerful geraniums
epitomize the warmer seasons.   

Imagine how boring this room would be 
without all the plants and natural textures. 

A simple way to update a front entry,
is to just add a basket or two.

They’ll provide extra storage and
add a little coastal vibe to your home.

I love the zig-zaggy pattern on these!  

Woven wood or bamboo blinds are relatively
inexpensive and look great all year.

It’s easy to create a layered look with these
natural blinds and fabric drapes.

These tall windows look amazing with the striped 
curtains and woven blinds,
and what about those antique doors...


How about this room with texture on
the ceiling, mantel and at the table?

These interesting wicker chairs are a mix of
industrial on the bottom, and beachy on the top!

I love how these vintage chairs are updated
with this fabulous nubby fabric
and whip-stitched detail.

It’s a great idea to add a little pop of color
for a fun element in a room so full
of natural fibers and a neutral palette.

I'm off to mix things up a bit at home!

I hope you guys are having an amazing day,
whatever you're doing.

I'm looking forward to the weekend,
and we're in the last stretch of the week,
so finish it off with something that makes you feel good!

Treat yourself to a little 
something special...


ciao! fabiana
