The past few months have been crazy, people. Baby E was born in February (as you know), we had family visiting till mid-March, we spent most of April in the UK, we moved house in May, and we just got back from a week in California. Both kiddos have now met their grandparents, uncles and auntie and all six of their living great grandparents, which is awesome. Still, I am more than happy not to have to get on another plane for the foreseeable future!
We rented a cute little cottage in Laguna Beach while we were visiting family nearby…
The decor wasn’t anything to shout about, but it was cute. The breakfast nook in particular was bright and beachy.
The house had great bones – I’d love to decorate a beach house.
I got a bit of inspiration from a store in downtown Laguna called Tuvalu. I’d have snapped this amazing chair up in a second – it was super sculptural and (surprise, surprise) I loved the nail head trim.
I also loved this turquoise glass lamp…
