Editor's Note: Today I am wearing eyelet skirt from Anthropologie, silk blouse from Joie, and Vince Camuto sandals.
This weekend I was back at my new routine of going up to the pool and bringing my magazines to analyze. I am loving having this hour and half to myself to be quiet with my thoughts and my magazines. I must say that I have gotten out of the habits that minute they hit the door because life sometimes just gets too busy. I truly love reading my magazines and getting inspired. Here I am with this sassy orange hat that happens to belong to my mother "but I think it will now belong to me" shielding my face from the sun and being able to see the pages better. I took an older Veranda magazine that I have not thoroughly looked out from my bedside to look at the pool on Sunday. I love the article that I am featuring below for many reasons. The article features a home in Palm Beach, FL that the homeowner had a background in design and was inspired by the old time feel of Palm Beach and the modern twist that she loves. Here are some images of her home below.
I love this grand staircase going down to the pool. This house was designed by artictect John Volk in the 1920's. What an amazing job he did!
The mirrored display cabinet in the dining room adds such a touch of elegance and glamour! I love doing monograms on the back of dining chairs and this is a perfect example! The green steam ware on the table gives me steam ware envy!
Another view of the dining room. The colors are so soft and elegant!
I love these pale turquoise walls and upholstery that it is so fresh and appealing!
I also love the collection on the mantle with the big palm leaves!
Another view of the living room. I love the antique furniture mixed with the slightly modern furniture for an all around elecatic mix.
This is another view!
I love the wallpaper and chandelier in this room!
This Clarence House wallpaper is divine!
What a dreamy bedroom!
Another view of the bedroom!
The green on the walls add such a spark to this terrace!
I found these quotes this morning. Love them both!
Dinner was tilapia seasoned with lemon, butter, and Slap Your Mama seasoning cooked on 375 for 20 minutes.
The Caesar salad has grilled corn, pippetias, and Swiss cheese. Delicious!
This song is a tear jerky but has always been one of my favorites!
