A Perfect Fade

My husband is Italian, so we spend a good portion of our summers on the coast of Italy. They sell these great beach blankets that seem to have the perfect sun drenched fade. I loved all the toned petal pinks and lemonade yellows...My little ones loved rolling around on them too. The color and feeling were so pleasing that I brought out a wonderful line of pastels in all tones, grounds and finishes. Thick and thin linens, cottons and chintzes that all look like they have been beautifully soaked by the sun and sea.
Shown above are: Lucy, Ginger, Greta and Panarea

I love how these rooms by Miles Redd and photographed by Paul Costello capture this faded summer feel.


  1. I am longing for that faded summer feel as opposed to this weary winter feel!

  2. That peak of the soft aqua striped wall is stunning! KG

  3. Lulu, fabulous fabrics!! I also love the art in these fabulous rooms by Redd and Costello!
