home again, but not for too long

We got home from a great vacation in Maine on Monday. It was lovely! We had beautiful weather and Aiden was so good on the long drive, which was one thing I was really worried about. But, it is always nice to come back home.

I've been doing lots of thinking and planning about our bedroom and closet projects, but I'm not going to be able to start anything real soon. We leave for the shore in another 2 and a half weeks, which are already filling up with busyness. I am hoping after our shore vacation that things will slow down. Aiden is going to be starting pre-school 2 mornings a week in September, which will open up more time during the week to get some things done.

So, here's something a little random, since I have made no progress on my project. In this month's "House Beautiful", I was immediately drawn to this article about this little beach bungalo...

I love the beach, and I always dream about having a little bungalo to decorate. I always feel that in a vacation home, you can do something that maybe you wouldn't necessarily do in your own home.

Which is why I love this space. All the pattern and color, I find it so charming.

I love how everything else is white, the walls, the cabinets, so that she could do whatever she wanted with everything else.

I love this wallpaper in the kids' room

I'm not sure that I will ever have a little beach bungalo of our own, but my wishful thinking makes me think maybe some day, someone will want me to help decorate theirs
