It’s crummy weather today where I live and it’s kind of depressing. Freezing rain is not quite what I imagined for mid April weather. No wonder I’m vitamin D deficient right now! I’ve been daydreaming of warm weather and being outside in the sun so when I pinned this picture on Pinterest I had to share.
Everything about this image screams outdoor entertaining and outdoor living. I love the mint green cushions with a dash of orange as the accent. The organic feel of the tree stump side tables doesn’t make this area too precious or perfect.
Yup, I’ll be daydreaming about this outdoor oasis all day today…….what about you?
Have a fabulous weekend!
Hopefully it’s the former versus the latter. I’ve been having some major issues publishing blog posts through windows live writer, which I use to compose my blog posts. In addition, I’m in the process of updating some portfolio pictures in a new format into my style book but its been nothing but headache after headache. So lets just say me and my laptop have not been getting along lately.
In the short term I will try to blog from my iPad but things may look wonky sometimes. So don’t forget about The Glam Blog. I promise I will be back!
When I look at this beach inspired dining room, I feel happy and serene. All the different variations of blue make me think of the beach which is exactly where I want to be right now.
Here are the 7 things I love about this dining room designed by Mabley Handler.
1. The fabulous chevron-y like fabric on the drapery & chairs by Jonathan Adler for Kravet. (Pattern: Wabash, Color: Aquamarine)
2. The Juicy Jute Grasscloth Wallpaper in Blueberry from Phillip Jeffries.
3. The Madeline Weinrib: Haveli Cotton Flatweave Rug in Turquoise. I have always loved her rugs and this one totally grounds the space.
4. This absolutely stunning linen drum shade light fixture embellished with silver nailheads and Swarovski crystals. It was designed by Michelle Hatch New York, and Chad Jacobs of Bone Simple Design.
5. Love, love, love the Dunes & Duchess 4-arm Candelabra.
6. I am currently obsessed with étagères and this one simply takes my breath away. In silver-leaf, it is from Worlds Away.
7. The pacific blue seeded glass table lamp from Rumrunner Home provides additional light on the buffet/bar area. I love how the designers used only one on the buffet versus two. I’m a big fan of symmetry but in this case one lamp works.
I thought I would keep my list to seven, but I also love the coffered ceilings and all the tabletop dishware. Do you love this beach inspired dining room as much as I do?

I don’t know about you, but I am so sick of winter! The month of February has been a horrible month for me on a personal level and I am ready to give it a fierce kick in the ass!
At the beginning of the month my dad was hospitalized with chest pains. However, after going through multiple tests lasting almost a week, it was determined that his heart and lungs were just fine. So that’s great news. The bad news: his prostrate cancer has spread to the bone in 2 areas which was causing this pain in his chest and lower back.
My dad has been fighting prostate cancer successfully for over 25 years but this latest news has really put me in a funk. I’ve been finding it very difficult to concentrate on anything. I start crying at the slightest thing and basically have been ignoring my blog because I haven’t been inspired to write about anything glamorous or beautiful for you. That is why you have only heard from me twice so far in 2013.
I really hate feeling like this because normally I am such an energetic go-getter kind of gal. So I have decided that I need to kick myself in the butt and get out of this dour mood.
From here on in, I am only going to think and write about pretty happy things. And that starts with Spring – a season of regrowth and rejuvenation. My dad needs that and so do I!!
Starting today, in my world it’s going to be spring already and that is all I am going to blog about for the next little while.
Thanks for listening and I totally appreciate YOU — my blog followers sticking with me!!
Happy Day!! I hope you get to share this day with someone or something you love.
