Traditional styles with modern touches and inspired designs are what we associate with Haynes-Roberts Design. From layered patterns to stark decor, these designers put a fresh spin on everything they do. Take a look at these pictures. We think you’ll agree that these rooms are in good taste.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a wonderful Tuesday!
Tory Burch’s Home via Vogue Hi, friends! We hope you all had an amazing weekend! We had the privilege of spending it with our extended family at the beach. We’re all full of sun and sand and family! After being thoroughly stressed watching Nik Wallenda walk a wire across the Grand Canyon without a net (Did y’all see that?!) we need to RELAX. These gorgeous rooms are sure to do the trick. Besides their fabulous furniture and chic finishes, we think the spheres adorning these rooms are the perfect touch.
Gray is so serene. Our favorite use of a monogram is to tie in the room’s colors on plain white bedding — starched, please.
I MUST get this for Will. We have half of a cow coming our way, so he’s going to be doing a lot of grilling… (Yes. I said half a cow.)
Monograms aren’t just for prissy rooms. This bolder font goes beautifully in a room with a masculine feel. Side note: Chaises are one of our favorite things in life, and it’s so tricky to put them at the end of beds. They totally pulled it off!
My wedding napkins 🙂
Love these monogrammed pillows in my living room!
Little Will’s bathroom towels.
This is the bedding in Will’s nursery. I love this Old English monogram. It’s sweet but boyish enough that he can have it for a few years. This duvet took an entire roll of thread!
These are the shams. And Cloud the Cat. Will LOVES Cloud. For the first time since he was born, Will is longer than Cloud. It sort of makes me sad.
Mom and I just had a bridesmaid’s luncheon for one of my sweet friends. I wasn’t sure about monogramming the cake, but I think it turned out cute. Plus, how can you not monogram the cake when the bride’s new monogram is MRS?
What do you think about monograms? Are you a fan or no?
And now our days of lounging by beautiful pools like these are coming to a close, for this year anyway.

On the bright side, with three weeks until the baby is due, hanging around in a bathing suit is becoming lower on the priority list.

Although, floating around weightlessly in a chilly pool is quite a welcome relief.
SLC Interiors Whether you’re lounging poolside in the warmer weather or bundling up on chillier days, a beautiful pool house is such a fabulous addition to a backyard.
Quogue Hamptons Architect There are some truly spectacular ones in my small town neighborhood that rival any I’ve ever seen anywhere. (Mostly drawn and built by my husband’s very talented grandfather.)
decorpad As is so often the case, it’s the landscaping that lifts the lovely to the level of spectacular.
Life of Polarn Per Unfortunately, Hurricane Irene was unconcerned about our Labor Day barbecues, leaving a substantial amount of clean up left to do before any poolside retreats are back to their former splendor.
But that won’t keep the barbecue from tasting just as good. We hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
I apologize for the lack of posting this week. We were without power and internet for days and days. We hope you all stayed safe in the storm!
While as a clothing choice they’re said to be unflattering, as a design technique horizontal stripes are anything but. From subtle tan to bold black, horizontal stripes on the wall are unique, eye-catching and fresh. We think you’ll agree that, from the shower to the dining room, these stripes completely steal the show.
