beach house: something's gotta give

It's time for my beach vacation and that reminds me of
my favorite beach house from the movie 'something's gotta give'.
OK, so most of it was a movie set, but still fabulous!

That fantastic kitchen!
...the cozy open great room
...and that desk with a great view!

marimekko bottna print in GREEN

in honor of st. patrick's day!

One of my all time favorite prints is
marimekko's bottna print in green + white.
I love the large scale and how the pattern
is cropped on my large 26" tray.
It's the perfect place to transfer appetizers from
my kitchen to its' next destination.

(the fabric is available, but unfortunately not the tray)

painted gray cabinets

Until my dream kitchen,
I continue to try and improve my not-so-dreamy one.
My husband says even though the kitchen isn't great,
the food that comes out is...which might further the renovation.
Who thought cooking well could be held against you?
My kitchen cabinets are now
freshened up with Sherwin Williams Mindful Gray,
A friend told me it felt french, sounds good to me!
