Summer breezes in…

Well, June 21st has come and gone, and in my neck of the woods it actually brought “summer”, with warm days and beautiful breezy evenings.  With vacations looming and the hot tub delivery today (more to come on that front), we are super busy trying to get all the loose ends finished.  That can make for some crazy busy days, so I thought some calming summer images were in order … enjoy everyone!

  1. Hi Donna, that first picture got me...I need a vacation and soon.
    We are planning two weeks on Vancouver Island in August which right now feels far far away.
    I love Ottawa in the summer, were orginally from Montreal so we use to visit often.
    Thanks for the lovely pictures...
    Regards, Carol Ann

  2. Thanks for the comment on my post
    The black table is very cool, I love it too,
    when I use black I use
    Benjamin Moore ONYX 2133-10 think thats the number? do not have my paint samples at home...anyway the name is right.
    My doors and all our furniture pieces are painted with this color and it is a fab, just right black...I think I original got it from cityline's Brian Gluckstein? He used it on a condos doors.
    Regards, Carol Ann

  3. It's funny how even a picture of sheers in a breeze can make you feel cool! I love those fun "Summer" blocks.

  4. The furniture I used oil based paint, you would have to find out if you can put a varnish over...not sure. Best is to as a Benjamin Moore dealer for how to use and what to buy.
    The doors I used BM__semi gloss Interior Acrylic Latex Enamel and it is 2133-10 I just checked the can. (my walls, ceiling, trim are Shaker Beige and just the doors are onyx)
    My neighbour loved it so much he did the same colors...
    Regards, Carol Ann
    PS any questions at all about design or anything email me anytime...CAM
