Martha's Vineyard

Beachy, yet warm and inviting for all seasons! Went to Martha’s Vineyard last weekend with Kara where not only was it a great time but I stayed in her house that I was fortunate to decorate! Wonderful hospitality, as always, wish I was there right now!!.

Aqua colored walls reflect the cool ocean while wood tones warm the space. One large room satisfies dining and leisure. After a day at the beach or one of Kara’s gourmet meals the comfy sectional beckons!





"My Bedroom" (sorry Dana Evan) is yellow and peach, am I not lucky?
Kara found and purchased on island a CD of the band, Nouvell Vague, whose soothing song she heard on a blog. Unlike that song, this CD contained dramatic songs like “Bella Lugosi Died” and “The Human Fly” that sound like the names imply. Made for fun listening on the ride home. thanks~ buzz buzz buzz….

*added the "Human Fly" song to the bottom of my playlist*

First time visitor to your blog and enjoyed your posts from the Vineyard. Having moved away from the Cape, always appreciate a little taste of home.

You do have some lovely things going on in your blog space, thanks for sharing the creative inspiration.

Hi there. Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I just have a min, but I will be back later today to visit your wonderful blog.

My Mother has a silky terrier...when he was bought he was supposed to be a yorkie. So those little faces always melt my heart.

Beautiful home Karen - Great job! I love Martha's Vineyard - it used to be an annual spot for me...it's been a long time. I may have to drag my son there this summer:)
