Serena & Lily wicker chairs in Beaufort beach house


Good morning, dear readers! We are thinking of you so much as we all social distance and are so grateful for the connection of our online community now more than ever. What a gift it is to be able to communicate with all of you every day!

We are encouraged by the generosity and selflessness of our friends, of the way communities are pulling together for the common good, by the arrival of spring and by the promise of summer, right around the corner.

We are using this found time to catch up on some decor projects around our houses, namely organizing, streamlining and sprucing for the warmer weather ahead! Case and point? This sweet bedroom nook got a springtime facelift with these natural chairs, pillows, throws and darling basket from one of our very most favorites, Serena & Lily.  We adore the chic yet relaxed look of these cozy chairs and have already spent so much time curled up with them. This has already become our favorite home school spot!

The fun thing about natural seating is that it doesn’t have to be terribly involved. Just adding a chair or two lends an entirely new look to a whole room without undertaking an entire makeover.

We couldn’t love our chairs in the natural shade any more,  but this indigo is positively fantastic also.

This is one of our favorite chairs in Serena & Lily’s current line. It is such a throwback to a classic beach house, updated for today.

And these stunning chairs completely define this dining room, making every meal an event.

We are big, huge fans of hanging chairs anywhere, but especially in places like this where seating is needed but a view needs to be preserved.

We love this piece so much…

That we featured this natural bench in our guest room. It lends an instant beachy look and is a piece we have loved more and more as time has passed. It is durable, convenient seating that created an instant sense of “finish” at the end of this bed.

Natural fibers couldn’t be more perfect anywhere than in a nursery. They are wonderfully gender neutral and make the transition from nursery, to toddler room, child to teenager, effortlessly. How many pieces can say that?

We have to say, we couldn’t love this swing (And pillows! And basket! And floor pillow! And throw!) any more in our playroom. A hanging swing made a difficult-to-decorate attic slant easy and whimsical, perfect for kids and adults alike. As we hunker down in our houses and spend more time here this spring, what could be better than that?


Thank you so much for dropping by during this chaotic time, friends. We’ll continue to be here to (hopefully!) make your days a little brighter, a little more beautiful and take you somewhere new, if only for a little while!
