We realize that it’s only just spring but let’s be honest here: we’re summer girls. The above vintage Coppertone ad reminded us of that classic Coppertone scent and got us to talking about our favorite scents of summer. Like salty beach breezes. Or that great beach smell that infuses all of the cover ups/towels in your beach bag. Or surf wax. Or a mouth-watering barbeque. Or the faint smell of the pool as you doze in and out of consciousness in a shady cabana. Or coconut in any shape or form. Perhaps a minty mojito (or two).
What scent says summer to you?
It's no secret that Monica loves graphic prints, stunning hardware, and most importantly- color. Take a look at some pictures I snagged of her home from a recent visit. From her swimsuits to her home, Monica incorporates all of her loves and creates her very own relaxing retreat with splashes of textured wallpaper (on the ceiling! Genius!), unexpected color, and hardware chandeliers. Her home is bright, chic, and perfect for entertaining
Hope she likes house guests...cuz I ain't leavin'!
We work hard here in the L*SPACE offices. I mean, if you call playing with fabrics, interviewing hot models, trying on bikinis, and surfing the internet for inspiring blogs work. We find inspiration in almost everything we do and the results are evident in our designs. Take for example our fabulous Eyekatcher and Monte Carlo prints from the 2011 season. Who would have thought that colored pillows or a hardwood floor could serve as inspiration for these two red hot prints? All in a days work.
