You may have already seen it, but I think it is worth the encore.
I am not exaggerating when I tell you that a majority of the fabrics, furniture, rugs, wall coverings, etc. used in this project are cataloged nicely away in the "things I adore" folders on my computer and my hard files. I still can hardly believe that so many of my very favorite elements, colors, pieces are all smushed together to create one. flawless. beachy. bungalow. Hallelujah!
The Balboa Island cottage uses a personal fave--Hable Construction fabrics and pillows--throughout.
Turq and red....a favorite combo of mine, esp. for a child's room.
...oh, and do you spy the Pottery Barn Teen bubble table?
My fave-o Albert Hadley wallpaper, with my fave-o Pottery Barn towels.
Bingo! The pink Smeg fridge in the guest house.
Talked about it here.
Spun fiberglass and butterfly chairs.
Can't cite how many times I have talked about both of those guys.
Always my favorite kiddie wallpaper....Little Whales from Wallnut.
One last shot of the truly cheery bungalow...a perfect seaside retreat!
Type fast to immediately read the full inteview with Krista. She sources many of the great items featured in the shoot, including the shiny cruiser in front of the bungalow (Liberty of London from the Targe, natch.)
As an aside, many of the pieces are truly affordable and can be located and purchased pretty easily and some can serve as inspiration to you, as they are vintage re-dos. Accessibility combined with affordability is always a refreshing treat!
P.S. I am going to try my damndest to avoid radio silence on the blog this week. You see, however, it is my baby sister's wedding, and I truly cannot contain my excitement for her...or myself! We have friends and family coming in from all over the country to sweat and party down in Nola. We have spent the better part of the year planning and designing away. I have slapped my own hand away from the blog, preventing myself from giving you guys sneak peeks...just to protect her privacy (and to keep the surprises going for any blog reading guests). ANYWAY, there will be lots of wonderful pics to share...and hopefully some fun ideas for Gimlet Nation.
