Feel the breeze...

Since we are now moving into Spring and daylight savings is upon us here in So. Cal...I find myself dreaming of outdoor spaces and as the weather gets warmer and the days are longer we always end up enjoying our family dinnertime outside on the are some inspirational fresh air dining spaces I have come across...
These modern, simple lines above are so crisp and calming.
Love, love the concrete table top above in this Tuscan style outdoorsy space.
Great for a small patio the feel of the colors with the textured/aged back wall...
Makes me want to chop some veggies, toss a salad and open a lovely bottle of Pinot Grigio then head out for a relaxing meal with family and friends.

blending of loveliness

sometimes i tend to get caught up in my succulents and all their wonderfulness (see shop), however, i also get swept away by the beauty and simplicity of why not combine the two? this is a pairing with shades of green/hints of silver/blue/purple found in these drought tolerant, easy to care for echeveria succulents with simple white, clean and crisp hydrangea's, who would not love to have this as a centerpiece at a dinner party, a wedding, outdoor dining...anywhere.
