and Spring Break dangerously, wonderfully close, we can’t help but get a little touch of spring fever.

What better place to visit (even if it’s only on our computers!) for a little spring dreaming than Naples, Florida.

living room with desk

This gorgeous Naples vacation home is sophisticated and chic, the kind of place where you could live all year round, not just vacation.

dining room

Is it any surprise that one of our favorite designers, Summer Thornton, designed this stunner?


A sleek and elegant kitchen with all the right details is a perfect spot for entertaining. (Because, try as we might, they’re never going to leave our kitchens!)

living room

This color palette feels cozy and warm–and different from anything else we’re seeing right now. We love it!

This piece is so perfect for those spaces where something with a back would feel too closed. Plus, it’s comfy extra seating!

bedroom with 4 poster bed

Each room is a little different from the last but the unifying themes in this home–like the color palette–makes it cohesive.

Wood paneling gives a nod to the beach nearby.

This gallery wall proves that it’s completely possible to do coastal without getting kitschy.

On vacation or just an ordinary day, this tub would feel like a vacation any time!

Because bathroom storage is always at a premium, we’re loving how these baskets not only take advantage of extra space but also add texture.


A settee at the end of a bed is so sweet. And there’s enough seating to have a party in this room!

Florida should be fun! And this porch knows it. The blue and white tiles add a touch of whimsy.

A pretty pool and lush landscaping lend a view worth coming back to.

From the kitchen to the bedrooms to the patio, blue and white porcelain is a unifying theme of this beautiful Naples getaway. If this beautiful coastal getaway doesn’t have you Spring dreaming, we don’t know what would! Where’s your favorite spring vacation spot?

SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE cuts right to the heart of what it means to be a born-and-bred Southerner, complete with the responsibilities, secrets and unique privileges that conveys.

Interior design, family secrets, life on the coast… It’s easy to see why everyone is buzzing about SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE. –Cassandra King, bestselling author of The Same Sweet Girls

If you want to check it out, here’s a link to Tina’s post when she was tagged! But the gist is, you get tagged, you answer ten questions, pick ten new bloggers and ask them ten questions. Pretty fun–and a great way to get to know some good blog friends a little better. We’d love to know how you would answer too! 

If you had to live in one country outside of the U.S. for a year, where would you reside and why?



We both love Switzerland and think it would be such a lovely place to live for a year. It’s so clean, the people are friendly and there’s nothing quite like skiing through the middle of a cow pasture!
