Parting shots of summer

Hamilton Design Associates

Cool summer breezes blows through the white billowing draperies into all the crevices of the living room, swirling around the fireplace and through the wicker chairs whose shapes undulate with the motion of the wind.

Wild flowers brighten your tables from kitchen to patio and whisper sweet nothings to you at every glance.

The soft bed adorned with silken pillows and cozy cotton awaits your heavy head. You wake to the warm whisper of morning coming through the French doors.

The cool taste of sherbet on your tongue refreshes you on a hot summer afternoon and makes you feel like a kid again.

Laing on the floor, putting your puzzle together, you realize that hours have passed and that you haven’t worried about a thing except where to place that next piece.

Morning peeks around the curtains into your private breakfast area. As you sit sipping your tea, you ponder how you are going to make it out of your pajamas this morning.

Floral patterns bring back childhood memories of slipping into your bed in the evening, listening to the crickets outside and falling asleep to the rhythms of nature.

Your summer novels are piled high in great anticipation of long evenings by the open window, letting the wind gently blow your pages one by one.

I hope your summer has been as wonderful as mine.

I'd love to have ceilings like the ones in the first photo- beautiful collection of pictures!

Wow! I'm in LOVE with that first room. The focal wall above the fireplace and the texture of the carpet are gorg! And of course, I love that hot pink chair :)

Love that first bedroom and the living room with the stripedy rug. Looks like they're in the same house too... someone keeps leaving their beach bag on the floor!
Summer WAS wonderful here until the past few weeks... weather in the upper 90's and 100's just sucks the life out of me. Fall is coming though... I can see the light changing and feel it in the air (when I dare to actually venture outdoors!)
Have a happy weekend!
