A Summer Goal and Inspiration Pieces...

It's the last week of school before summer. With Seattle temperatures in the 80s and 90s, it definitely feels like summertime!

I'm looking forward to slower mornings and enjoying lots of family time and adventures. Our big trip this year was back in February when we visited Spain and France (and New York City along the way!). So, while we won't be going too far this summer, we do hope for lots of day trips and maybe a few overnighters. 

When it comes to home projects, I hope to get a few done this summer. 

First on the list is re-doing our oldest son Hudson's bedroom. He is 12 years old and could use a bigger bed and some updating in his room. 

There are two pieces I'm using as inspiration for the design of his room.

The first is this amazing 5 x 8 Addison And Banks Flat Weave Licorice wool area rug that recently arrived from Rug Studio

I just love the colors, design and texture. It is the nicest rug we own (truly!), and I think it will look amazing in Hudson's room!

The next item I came across unexpectedly this past weekend. I was driving through a cute neighborhood when what to my wondering eyes should appear?

Some might say it's an old section of fencing. What do you and I see? A perfectly weathered-grey "barn wood" headboard! Right?!

I've been sanding and scrubbing, and will soon be sealing this little treasure.

I really hope Hudson's room will be a relaxing retreat for him, that reflects his style. He loves sports, the ocean and palm trees, and also a bit of rustic outdoors-y-ness. Hmmmm. This will be interesting...

Stay tuned!
