Inspired :: Stormy Summer Afternoon

August in Florida means regular afternoon storms, which (if you're lucky) means a lazy couple of hours losing yourself in a novel or drifting off for a nap. These times when the skies dim and we retreat indoors have inspired me to pull together an ultra cozy, moody kind of retreat...

When the storms roll in, the typically pale blue sky transforms into a palette of darker, smokier blues with striations of grays and highlights of silvery whites. The waters reflect steel gray and the white sands on the shoreline deepen. With this bedroom, I'd start with this beautiful, grayed down sea blue wall color and paint the ceiling a lighter shade of the same color, creating a shadowy atmosphere.


This dreamy bed in dark gray upholstery evokes a cocoon-like feeling.

I love a large table pedestal table in place of a regular night stand. One this size allows for plenty of room for this fabulous mercury glass lamp and collection of novels.
