Who’s ready for summer? Me!!! While it doesn’t quite feel like it on the outside here in New York, we’re starting to cultivate the beach vibe on inside. I’ve been tackling a few projects here and there, trying to gear up for the house tours, so thought I’d share my modern coastal nook first.
The print is from Cider House Studio and I love how playful the palette is for summer. It fits right in with the aesthetic of my house. The print is Aquinnah and the size is 24″ x 36″. Nancy, the artist is preparing to sell prints on her site but for now she can create a custom listing if you see a piece you like.
The frame I bought off Amazon from Art to Frames and the pillows are from my shop, minus the vintage mud cloth.
The built-in floating bench I DIYed many years ago, you can find the tutorial HERE. I struggled with this area for the longest time when we first moved in and gave it a great deal of thought before pulling the trigger.
It love that it is sleek and modern but also rustic, a nice juxtapose.
I have a little secret to share. See that shiplap in the background? Well it’s not actually shiplap, it’s PENCIL! And it will be getting a refresh soon.
I also wanted to give you all a book update. I have an interested agent, I’ve had a few, along with a tremendous amount of highs and lows. I still have a two full manuscripts out and one partial that went to a very well known publisher. If I told you, you would scream but I’m not holding my breath. I’m also trying to get a thicker skin when it comes to all of this, but it’s very difficult at times. I’m also working on a non-fiction book proposal to submit, which I’m really excited about but also terrified.
Have a happy day friends!
