i saw this great little fire island cottage on remodelista. i seriously love cottaging- no travel journey is yet to match the feeling i get from chilling with fam and friends in the wilderness. regardless of it being unrealistic, i’m not pining for a mega cottage- for the most part i look at boathouses and assume that amount of space would suffice. i love seeing projects like this on a dime- still done in good taste, working with what you got, freshened up with some white paint, spending on a few key details. i think this couple did a beautiful job, check out the link to remodelista for full deets, and more photos.

natural light at the right price

paper lanterns are showing up in a lot of beautiful photos. when sorrounded surrounded with the right decor elements they’re quite effortless and natural looking- i particularly like them slightly oversized (too small and they can look plain chintzy.) best part is you can head over to china town and grab it for less than a couple of cold pressed juices. alternatively, i’m also digging the koushi lamp by mark eden schooley- it has a simple frame wrapped with cotton- kind of reminiscent of those flaming lanterns ubiquitous on pinterest wedding boards. the real deal runs a few more benji’s but here’s a diy link.
