inspiration of the week: a relaxing retreat from the dog days of summer
here it is…
The dog days of summer are in full swing. It's hot and humid outside, driving most people back indoors. This little sitting room is the perfect spot to escape too on a lazy hot afternoon.
I love all the little details in this room. The moldings around the windows, the painted ceiling in a relaxing shade of blue, the striped draperies with the banding cut on the bias, and the gorgeous hanging lantern. The white slipcovered settee is so inviting.
Can't you imagine yourself in this room with your feet up, a good book, and a glass of ice tea or wine? I know I can! Before you know it Fall will be knocking on our door, so be sure to savor these last few days of summer.
