Whether on the beach or in the backyard, summertime living is made up of warm, lazy afternoons. And while you’re kicking up your feet, you may as well have a good book to enjoy. Our summer design reading series offers a break from the typical beach read and the chance to be inspired by beautiful interiors.

Wall brackets are just the sort of thing you don’t know your walls are missing until you have a pair. They’re dimensional, decorative and functional. They’re incredibly versatile, and they work in small spaces and large. And if you get tired of them in one room, put them to use in an entirely different way in another room. What’s not to love?

Get the look of this fun, beachy breakfast area with our help

The color blue is one of the most versatile shades in our crayon box. We love the way it can feel sophistication, masculine, beachy, and even feminine! And it’s also fun to mix different shades of blue together in one space to create a balanced, interesting room. That’s just what we did here. We combined indigo with our favorite shade of spa to create a little breakfast area that feels perfectly coastal.
