This creative dining/reading nook is one of the best we’ve seen. And it makes a lot of sense too. Because reading and food are both essential to life!

In that spirit, we’re giving away a $200 Amazon gift card to celebrate summer and make those days at the beach a little more fun! Purchase a new beach bag, your favorite sunscreen, that sarong you’ve had your eye on… or a copy of Dear Carolina, of course! Or stock up on that interior design book wishlist you’ve been keeping!
