Nine Years of Textiles, Art History, Gardens, and a Little Mental Traveling with Courtney Barnes


Sommers Summer

Fall catalogs are starting to arrive in the mail, but we still have a few weeks of summer left to enjoy. This crisp beach cabana done up by Ruthie Sommers definitely speaks fun-in-the-sun, so I'm posting it again. When the cabana appeared on Coastal Living's cover in 2006, I was drawn to the old school use of symmetry.

The actual cabana structure was designed by architect Tony Gwilliam, who now sells the pavilion in a kit. To order visit, or call 805-646-7355.

I've never seen this picture. I love it! And I love how it ties in color wise with the Hermes box post. Both are great!
