Today, Marlene celebrates summer vacations
She has great ideas for how to incorporate travel and culture in your life and home
All of her suggestions are shoppable through text-widgets
Wonderful, colorful 100% cotton beach towels are packable and terrific in the park, backyard or to take to exotic locales! Great gifts for every age!! Spread them for picnics, beautiful sandy beaches or garden lounges at home!!
Enjoy Brazil, Costa Rica, California, Florida, France, Greece, Hawaii, Italy, Maine, Massachusetts, Mexico or?? … we LOVE them all!! Bring them home…
Enjoy your deck, garden and home with settings of charming dinnerware and objects d’art that capture the serenity, designs and beauty of the world!!
Many patterns have been inspired by the art and architecture of the country. Vietri’s Italian Santorini and Juliska’s Bamboo Collections honor entire cultures and are wonderfully - mix and match!
Enhance each tablescape or table setting with little treasures you have picked up on your travels…no matter how small!
They may be beach glass from a Monterey excursion, little tiles from Mexico or Portugal, linens or textiles that speak to you from the South of France, Florence or Turkey!! Everyone collects something special ~ something that touches spirit, heart or memory to make us smile.
Tout la monde enjoys beautiful blue and white color schemes ~ so classically natural, tranquil, uplifting and charmingly reminiscent of sea and sky!! Any color can be an accent!
Travels in your mind count too. Maybe you have not made it to Newport, Paris or Venice…yet the joy of beautiful photography, books, recipes and designs transport you. They allow you to appreciate and enjoy the world and her many cultures!!
Assouline has the most gorgeous travel, cocktail books imaginable…almost like being there!! From Capri, Ibiza, St Moritz to Palm Springs and more!
Entertaining at home, using travel themes, is lovely. Maybe you are hosting a bon voyage or welcoming friends or newlyweds back home!! Let’s enjoy the world and all her incredible beauty!!
Menus, drinks and accessories make “traveling” accessible and easy…yet not too precious! Framing special photos from vacations past or planned are fun…little voyages on their own!!
Summertime...and the Livin' is Easy.
Until next week ~ Cheers!!
Enjoy your Summertime travels, real or imagined these special days, where ever they take you!!
