Summer time and the livin's easy

Where I live, it's not really summer until the temperatures reach triple digits. Usually, this happens around July. Well, the weather this year has been awfully strange - we had temps around 100 degrees in early June, and then Spring like weather the rest of June, July and August. Until now!! Yesterday was 103 and today it's supposed to be 106 out! While everyone else is calling it the 'end of summer' and preparing for and looking forward to fall, I however am embracing all things summer and holding onto it as long as I can!

Check out this beach house located in Carpinteria, California (which is between Santa Barbara and Ventura.) While the home is located on the Pacific coast, it somehow has a very Atlantic feel to it. I am loving all the white walls, slipcovered furniture and subtle turquoise and blue accents combined with texture, texture, texture! It's a casual beach house with an elegant feel to it, and has my name written all over it!

What about you, are you embracing all things summer related as long as you possibly can? Or, are you looking forward to the arrival of fall?
