Joss & Main: Nantucket Inspiration

Being the partial New England girl that I am, I always have a love for seaside themed decor and furniture. This week Joss & Main is featuring designs by Erin Gates. Her style has a warm and inviting feel with a whole lot of the fabulous rustic beachy feel of a Nantucket cottage.

I don't think there was one piece I didn't love!

Martha's Vineyard

My weekend in the Vineyard was just lovely. The towns of Oaks Bluff and Edgartown were so quaint and filled with beautiful architecture and charming shops and boutiques.

This area was filled with little Victorian Gingerbread houses that were so adorable. Each unique in their own way!

This one was my ultimate favorite. The colors are fantastic and the lush flowers gave this cottage the most curb appeal.

The porches themselves were quite elegant. I was just a little obsessed with the turquoise on the ceiling of the porch with the black shutters against the white clapboard was the perfect touch for these seaside villas.

I couldn't create this post without a photo of the beautiful dock and light house. So perfect!

Happy Friday!

There's something about the drive into work on a Friday morning that just feels.. well, different. It's that feeling that the end is in sight and soon you can be relaxing with your favorite book by the pool or enjoying a day on Martha's Vineyard (which I am lucky enough to be doing this weekend!) with sunshine flooding your personal space. Yeah, I'm so ready for this week to be over.

Sayonara and enjoy!

Getting Back to Your 'Roots'

A few weeks ago we traveled to the easternmost point of Massachusetts known as the beautiful Provincetown, or as it's more lovingly know to the locals, "P-Town". I absolutely love it there. The culture is free and wild, and gives you a feeling of pure liberation. While walking down Commercial St., I couldn't resist but stop in just about all of the little boutiques carrying everything from home furnishings, decor, knick-knacks, and everything in between.

One store that I fell in love with was Roots, located right in the heart of Commercial St. This little shop had the most amazing decor and, given the money, I would have scooped up everything.

The style is a sophisticated seaside version of the traditional Cape Cod approach. 

If you find yourself in the Provincetown area, please check this place out. It's well worth the trip!

There is something kind of magical about iridescent colors. The way they will change as you stroll by and how they glimmer in the sunlight. A pair of shoes I have inspired this post. I can basically wear them with just about anything. It made me think about how that can translate into an interior.

This color transcends so many shades of pink and bounces them off the furniture and floors that it gives the space an overall glow.

The wall color in this space could've been any shade of green or blue and the tiles would have undoubtedly balanced.

First off, I can't get enough of this space. The colors are so cool and crisp and the lighting just compliments the entire thing. There is so much iridescent color in this space from the dining table to the cabinets, I don't even know where to begin!
