You make your home look so inviting and comfortable. The benches are great but it looks even more beautiful as the bed. Is your pool warm? We have to wait until the end of May to open the pool, oh I would so be spending all my day by your pool. I have a question for you, do you garden too? If so, please share pictures. Have a wonderful week.

Simply Beautiful, I love Atlanta Bartlett too! I wanted to add how much I love your choice of linens, especially the pillow shams, and that they have a casual look with the ruffles.

Raffaella said...

Your Easter Day seems a dream... I see the book of Pale & Interesting... I love Atlanta Bartlett and Dave Coote very much... I dedicated some posts to them many times!...

Stacey@A Sort Of Fairytale said...

beautiful! i could lie there all day and indulge in that book...that's my idea of a perfect afternoon!!
i have always wanted to get an army cot like rachel shows in her books, where it's outside piled with pillows and duvets, or on the beach. love how you captured the same look with your lounge chairs! also, i hope you get to stay at rachel's prairie ranch someday...i bet that would be a dream come true for you!!

ShantyGirl said...

It looks dreamy! I love that Atlanta Bartlett book! It does sound like a perfect day lounging by the pool reading decor magazines surrounded by roses!
Have a happy week!

Victoria said...

Mix me up a margarita and I could lounge there for hours!!! In fact, I wouldn't even need the margarita! Your photo's are soooo gorgeous, you're so talented!

Laura said...

I have never seen two hard-wood beds look so comfortable and inviting. Those linen pillow-cases with scruptuous frills are breath-taking. I just love looking at your blog.

There's that purse, suits the book and Pellegrino water wonderfully, Tausha (I'm having a glass now). Thank you for mentioning me and my blog, so sweet of you!

Have a happy night (trying to decide where to put a bistro table outdoors here... too many decisions, but you know!).

Anonymous said...

Thank you!!! I have been to Target and am not having any luck finding JUST pillow shams/cases...do you bleach the oatmeal as you mentioned above? I don't want the bleach to eat mine away! LOL! :)

You home is beautiful and you do a magnificent job decorating it and photographing it. I love Rachel Ashwell and her Shabby Chic-Target or not. I have it in three rooms of my home. You inspire me to do more. I love the chandelier in your bedroom.

Your pale soft pillows look like marshmellows and just as soft. What a perfect place to sit in the sun with all the right ingredients. x

Lecte said...

I love the way the roses are piled up in your pictures - abundant, lush and elegant.
One feels relaxed and pleasantly light-minded just looking at these photos.
Also, the bag caught my eye - such a fine piece. Is it crocheted?

Desi said...

So nice and so elegant!
Very good

Bringing Pretty Back said...

SO PRETTY!!!!!!!!!!!! I am dying to read that book~ I think I shall head on over to Amazon ~ Right now!
Have a pretty day!

Linda said...

Okay, gotta ask because the flowers are just too beautiful...are they real? If they are, you must have the most amazing rose beds.
Your pictures are just dreamy.
Linda

Anonymous said...

I wish, too!!! LOL!!!

Simply Me said...

YES YES YES all my pictures are of real flowers... I had a garden, up until we put our pool in, it was not big but i had Rose tress. roses are the easiest for me to take care of. So now i have to start all over... I buy my flowers, from Grocery Stores, Super targets,and South Florida where i visit a lot, i get buckets filled for cheap...lol It was once my dream to open a flower shop but to sell only in buckets....

Simply Me said...

Now my husband wants to buy me a green House...lol I'm not a very good Gardner, i may kill all of them...then what???LOL

Linda said...

Well, I think your buckets of roses are just beautiful and the color combinations are amazing.
I anticipate checking your blog everyday to see if you have blogged. I'm so intriqued with your blog......so dreamy.
thanks for answering my question.
Linda

Simply Me said...

Thank you so much Linda, and thank you for following me!!! I'm inspired by all of you !!!
