Our Coastal Sitting Room ...

Hi friends!

It escapes me how fast this Summer is going by!  I feel like pumpkins will be replacing our seashells before we know it!

So before that happens, I wanted to share our little "coastal" sitting room, which is the first room you see when you walk through the front door.

I've changed this room around more than I care to admit ... just last week a love seat was parked in front of the windows.  Now, it's been replaced by an accent piece that was in our sunroom, along with two Ektorp chairs that used to be in our sunroom, too.

We had this 4 chair configuration in here for awhile, and I really liked it, soooo I shouldn't be surprised it has made a return appearance!

I left the vintage secretary in its spot and surrounded it with cute shore bird prints from Home Goods.

Our little faux fireplace in its coastal *attire* is making me yearn for the beach!

I'm more than ready to stick my toes in the sand ...

and take the traditional walks on the beach to gather pretty seashells.

"One" of these days, I'd love to put a chunky buffet here with a wall gallery above ... for now, our vintage secretary seems to fill the space.  

Whenever I look at our ship, I always think of the song "Sailing" by Christopher Cross ... nothing like the calming ocean.

Summer, please don't go by too fast! Although, with this crazy heat, is it wrong to admit that I'm "just" about ready for Fall?

Thanks so much for stopping by ... have a great week!
