Are you familiar with the work of New York City interior designer Fawn Galli? Her work has been featured in House Beautiful (March 2012 cover story), Domino, O at Home, New York Times and Wall Street Journal. I'm impressed with her use of color and her ability to mix old and new. As an aside, I can't seem to hear the name Fawn without thinking of the movie character Fawn Leibowitz. That really dates me, but there it is. So, do you see anything here that you like?
I know you've seen these T. Keller Donovan images before, but I love them and what better time of year to feature his interiors than now? They just exude summertime don't they? I love his simple, crisp, fresh rooms. The contrast of the blue and white is always gorgeous. I was surprised to see the stair runner in the last photo. It's the same as the rug in my family room! What do you think about T. Keller Donovan's work?

My post today is all my daughter's idea. She's out of school and thought I should have lovely swimming pool photos the day after Memorial Day to start off the summer. She also named the post with a song title she thought was amusingly ironic with these beautiful images. Happy Tuesday!

The five images above are from A Passion for Blue and White by Carolyne Roehm.
The two above are from Alberto Pinto's Table Settings.
I hope you are enjoying the long weekend. My daughter graduated from eighth grade Friday and we are so happy to have some long overdue down time for our family. So, would you prefer to be in one of these Carolyne Roehm settings or the beachside Alberto Pinto table?

If you've been here before, chances are you've seen that I have a big interest in abstract art. I used to not like it, but now I LOVE. I'm wanting to freshen and update my staid interiors. Some abstract art is just what I need to add some fun and color. I've been a fan of Kerry Steele's work for a while now, and as I've thought the colors she uses are beautiful, they didn't work for my house. Until now. Yesterday, I was checking out her work and saw these two. The colors are perfect for my family room. I snapped them up just as fast as I could, and I can't wait for them to arrive at my door. Do you have anything you're looking for that you know is just what your room needs? What is it?
