A statement wood pendant lamp adds texture to this modern dining room in Portugal.

Although today felt like the first day of fall, I know Atlanta weather well enough to know that next week the heavy humidity will return. Although I’m ready for the cooler temperatures (well, to an extent), I’m not ready to let go of easy summer living! And speaking of summer living, this house is filled with it. It’s bright, easy-going, but is full of unique elements that set it apart from the regular old beach house. I absolutely love the bursts of color and variety of prints on the wall (especially this one in the living room). Are you ready for cool weather or still clinging to the summer like I am?

I love how much personality just a little art and pattern give the room. The ottoman’s trim pulls the pink from the print towards the center of the room, and adds a very simple large-scale thin striped pattern for an airy, but geometric accent.

What a serene porch! I love how the thin curtains add a dreamy enclosure to this dining area, and the blue wall brings a new color to the home’s palette on the outside. It’s quite the idyllic Portuguese escape!

  3. I’m definitely ready for cooler weather, to an extent as well.

    This house.. just a little bit jealous. The ceiling in the living room? Too good. And I’d love a bathroom with all that natural light!
