You might have seen this Hamptons beach house before in House Beautiful, but I’ve just come across and love its casual, relaxed style. It wouldn’t even need to be near the beach – I can imagine this as a country cottage opening onto a beautiful garden, where you can keep the doors open all day as you cook, read, relax and potter about outside. I love the faded reds, the antique rug, the kitchen’s chequered tile floor, the toile chair – I’m still a fan of this fabric, and you can’t have a country cottage without a bit of toile!
It’s bold Africa meets China, and I love it! I just can’t seem to get enough of chinoiserie wallpaper at the moment, I know I keep going on about it. And red – I used to love it, then went off it in favour of pinks and greens, but now I think it’s back in my good favour – especially when paired with a zebra rug and blue-and-white porcelain!
I’m trekking across town for various appointments today (funny how just driving across the city can feel like a trek!), so hope the traffic is kind to me. Have a great Tuesday!
