I hope it is starting to feel a little Spring-y in your neighborhood too! Suddenly I am dreaming of sun, sand and cool blue water. To hold us over, and keep us dreaming of the sunny days ahead here are some breezy dining rooms that are dripping in style.
How fun is this room???? Totally unexpected but it works!

These rooms are all a little more traditionally beach-inspired. Don't you wish you could just take a little from each room?

I think I may have to try striping a table top like this one. Maybe on a desk?

These drapes are so airy and light. And what a view!

Yet another dreamy view! I think I could live on a porch this cozy.

A little more traditional, but I would LOVE that bench!!

This is the pinnacle of beach style for me. Pure bliss.

Siiiiigh. Now I have beach fever! Those are gorgeous. So light and airy. My Dining Room needs a SERIOUS make-over!

I've had beach fever for awhile. I've also been thinking about painting those same stripes on a sewing machine table that I have. It needs something!

Looking at these images I can *almost* feel the sunshine on my shoulders and smell the sunscreen in the air!! Ahhh...I could definitely get used to calling any one of those places home!

Just beautiful. Summer has just ended here in Australia so these pics will have to do me until next year!

Beautiful rooms! I was driving on some country roads today & was noticing how green some of the fields are. The Kwanzan cherry trees are blooming here, too.

I love that first one too! It's in my inspiration basket. I mostly want that bulletin board!

Rachel said...

I am such a sucker for long tables, so the last one is my fav! Every time we have people over for dinner I feel so cramped! haha I think that's why I covet tables with seat so many!
