Got me thinking about how serene and calming cottages can be (unless of course you're at the cottage I'm going to this weekend LOL).
Like this one:
Or this one:
Have a great weekend all (be it serene and calming or loud and fun!!

Today, in the heat wave we’re experiencing in Ottawa, this is where I want to be…. floating a chair with my favourite beverage at the ready!

What about you? Hope you are staying cool this weekend.

In my Dabble browsing this week, I came across this fainting sofa from Urban Outfitters. I love it in the aubergine velvet. Just saying “aubergine” and “fainting sofa” in the same sentence is giving me a serious case of the vapours.
“Why, I do declare, I believe I will have to retire to the veranda.
Oh dahling, would you fetch me a pitcher of mint julep.”
OK, I’m done channelling my inner Scarlett :). Have a wonderful summer weekend all! And while you are enjoying your drink of choice on your veranda, make sure to check out the latest issue of Dabble Magazine!

Flipping through the June 2011 issue of Elle Decor, I came across this table in an article about Paul Loebach, a furniture designer.

Read their post on the Watson Table here.
Paul was named one New York Times “Nifty 50” in January of 2010. I like the unique design, a modern piece with a nod to the spiral turned legs of earlier furniture styles. A conversation piece in anyone’s home, I’m sure!
