I have to say that I am currently bombarded online with winter images as all my favourite suppliers, blogs and stores abroad, whether it be London or New York are featuring their winter collections on sale. It is quite bazaar given that we are lapping up the sun, surf and sand here or on holiday.
Yes the weather has been, for the most part dismal but we are trying to be in beach mode. I always look longingly over the summer at images in Design Magazines featuring ‘the beach house’ look, thinking how I can incorporate just a little touch of this into Home. Maybe it is just the token bowl of shells or piece of coral. I yearn for the actual beachhouse where you could do the whole ‘look’ with a palette of driftwood and azure blue, turquoise or inky navy.
However….. it always amuses me just how quickly Autumn creeps up on us and by Easter there is that chill in the air. I always feel a little cheated and that the summer has been all too short.
Having had a taste of the beach while the sun has shone briefly during the last week I am not ready for anything resembling Autumn.
There are of course those who choose to travel to London, Paris, New York or even ski in the Northern Hemisphere, forgoing the summer holiday altogether.
I have to say I do love this interior shot of the mountain lodge…..the ski lodge with plaid sofas, leather and rustic timber finishes. Tartan is divine anywhere, anytime….Ralph Lauren does it best along with Mulberry!!!!!
