Memorial Day 2017


memorial day is the official start of summer. are you ready? i am! … and nothing says summer like an east coast shingled cottage. 

it’s been fun seeing everyones memorial day weekend get aways on instagram. the east coasters are heading to the hamptons, nantucket, cape cod and newport. it’s most likely if you are going to one these places you will be heading to some type of shingled cottage.

i’m decorating a shingled cottage in newport, rhode island (the coastal living show house). we are installing in a few weeks. i’ll be heading to the east coast very soon and i will officially be starting my summer…and i will be starting it with a shingled cottage. 

happy memorial day!!!
