The Peaceful Hues Of The Pacific...

We have not had the time to do a complete renovation of The Pearl yet, but I am doing a mini makeover inside. I took down the Shabby Chic rose curtains and replaced them with white linen roman blinds from IKEA.  They were on clearance and we were lucky enough to purchase all that remained, which was just enough to cover every window.    I also removed the Shabby Chic floral bedding and replaced it with a white down comforter and turqoise velvet pillows. I have added white washed camp chairs, a few sea paintings, and always seashells and driftwood.  The camp chairs were purchased from IKEA 10 yrs. ago.  They were natural wood with rainbow striped canvas that I washed in white chalk paint.  I still need to repaint the entire interior in Pure White, including the stove.  After I finish painting I will share more.  The window above the kitchen is the only one that I left a floral curtain in...It is Rachel Ashwell's British Rose.

 The sea wash whites, driftwood greys, and faded blues of the Northern California Coast is my inspiration.  The peaceful hues of the Pacific.

along the misty dunes,
to the waves of the ocean's shore."
