It's almost here! Our favorite season - SUMMER. We are already dreaming of paddle boarding on clear blue lakes, playing tag with the Pacific Ocean, concocting fresh iced beverages, and sunning ourselves in the sand. 

We are so lucky in the Bay Area to have such a lovely climate year-round. In San Francisco in particular, June can be a little hit or miss weather-wise. During the several years we've lived in the city, I've seen hot days where everyone is out in their summer best, enjoying happy hour outside and living up the sunny days. I've also seen plenty of the notorious Karl the Fog. On weekend where the weather prediction is cold and cloudy, there are so many easy escapes to the warmth- North to Sonoma or the beach, east to Lake Tahoe, and so many lovely places South (we favor Cambria and Santa Barbara).

Design-wise, I'm focusing on some small summer refreshes (check out my post on new decor accents at Target) and designing our second bedroom. Sara is in full design mode with her recently renovated backyard and upcoming dining room transformation. Be sure to follow us on instagram as we take on these summer projects.
