Where has the summer gone? Eeeek. It has been a whirlwind. We just got back from a summer National Parks road trip last weekend (I’m working on a blog post about that) and then were briefly in LA, and right before all that, we took a kid-free getaway to Ventura and stayed in a vintage trailer at Waypoint Trailer Hotel. It was such a fun alternative to a hotel and utterly adorable! A cute trailer without any of the baggage. This was trailer #9.
Here’s a few quick summer links while I get my life organized enough to put together some posts…
Did you catch this AMAZING DIY wood screen by Robert Maurer???!!! It is like our front yard screens but on steroids. My mind is blown forever. You can read a great article on his backyard at Atomic Ranch (or his entire house in the latest issue!) and see all his innovative home projects on his blog, Mid-Century Maurer, which I can’t recommend enough. It’s hands-down one of the best blogs I read!
I’m pumped for the reveal of Emily Henderson’s Lake Arrowhead house this week! I have felt very blah about “mainstream” design feeds/blogs/etc lately but think this house might be inspiring. From the first post today, it looks like it will be a sweet mix of minimal and vintage. I want that weird tri-leg table bad.
I got another Circa50 chair cover for another vintage butterfly chair frame that I acquired and couldn’t let go of. Reminded of how much I love their products! See this post of mine for more info if you too need a butterfly chair cover.
Remember before blogs when magazines were a thing? It’s been awhile, but $5 subscriptions on Amazon convinced me to get back to my first love: Sunset Magazine! (Better Homes and Gardens and Martha Stewart Living are also 5 bucks!) Awaiting the arrival of glossy paper.
If you too head to Ventura for a vintage trailer fix, don’t miss the tiki bar downtown. I’ve been trying to convince my son to let me tiki up his room floor to ceiling ever since. With no luck. Can I design a home tiki bar/room for someone out there??? Hit me up!
