Happy Memorial Day Weekend!!

It's Memorial Day Weekend, the sun is shining and the red, white and blue is being worn proudly! I have always appreciated this holiday, showing gratitude for our men & woman in the armed forces, but now that I have moved to Chicago it has another form of importance as well... SUMMER IS HERE! The beaches and pools are officially and finally open! So after todays excitement of seeing Cubs fans heading to the ball game, people walking to the beaches with coolers straw hats, the smell of grills and the sun brightly shining it is definitely inspiring and makes me think of beautiful summer homes, and crisp coastal inspired interiors...

This living room is feeling very coastal and patriotic. I love the  mix of red, white and blue with this casual interior. 

This coastal interior has a very ethnic traveled vibe to it. 
I love, love, love the refreshing white lacquered floors...

I recently saw this wallcovering (also available in fabric) in the Schumaker Showroom, 
it's called "Katsugi" and I am dying to find a place to use it!! 
Hint, hint... anyone need a new wallcovering or fabric?

This family room is a perfect example of a coastal inspired interior without a lot of color...

You would never have a gray day on this fabulous sunroom!
