It’s impossible to think about interior design when the beach is calling. Happy summer, and see you after Labor Day! (-Allie, Moe & Laur)
LOL. That’s all I have to say. (-Moe)

I’ve been hearing about these Fouta bath towels for some time now, and experienced one in action this past weekend at the beach. My friend K brought one along. Not only was it beautiful to look at and soft to the touch, it served as something to lie on, dry off with, AND as a sarong when we finally left (about 2 hours too late—ouch.) The semi-steep price tag is justifiable when you think about how many roles this beach towel plays. It’s even pretty enough to be used as a throw when the cooler weather arrives. Tomorrow, hopefully.

Designed to be a bed for small dogs and cats, this is one example of pet furniture and actually adds style to home decor. I’m jealous. Why can’t humans have beds as rad as these? (-Laur)

Gosh, wonder why this appeals to me so much… (-Moe)

So I have this cool app on my iPhone called, appropriately, Palettes, that lets you take a photo and turn it into a color palette. Because you know how you read a magazine and (I’ve been guilty of this, I’m sure) it’s like, “get your inspiration from nature,” and you’re like, um… so my apartment should look like a blade of grass? The reason this app is so awesome is that it sees all those colors that you don’t even notice—so when I took this snap of the Statue of Liberty on a boat ride over the weekend, it caught all those greys and peaches and dusty blues that I might have overlooked. Neat, huh? (-Moe)
