Under $5,000 Beach Room Getaway

Half Moon Bay, California

Summer is around the corner, and summer is my favorite season of all. Longer days, BBQ with friends, warm beach days in the California sun. I normally blog how fashion meets interiors, but this time around I decided to just blog about Interior Design. I decided to turn your bed room into a beach room getaway on a budget, that’s right on a budget…under $5000.00.

Color Blocking

Colour-BlockingColor blocking, one of my favorite types of fashion and interior out there. It is so easy to color block your fashion. It is either one color at a time, for example…pants hot pink or turquoises. Shirt…Orange or Yellow. Jacket. Navy Blue or Red. Simple as that, and of course wedges for summer time with some really cute nail polish.

Looking around color blocking is all around, sofas pillows, fashion, shoes, paint jewelry, accessories, here are some of my favorite color blocking in fashion : (all images are from google images)

Its spring time for the stripes to shine

As the days are getting long and the nights are warm we are preparing for summer. Well maybe not here in the USA where we have having still snow and rain, which in California we desperately need…Water! But enough of what we do need it is what we want…Stripes! I do believe that stripes on dresses, shirts shoes makes me think of my European Summers. Even Interiors can have stripes, the most famous stripe in Interior Design and signature style of Ralph Lauren. It always reminds me of warm summer nights.

What is a stripe?

a. A long narrow band distinguished, as by color or texture, from the surrounding material or surface.

b. A textile pattern of parallel bands or lines on a contrasting background.
c. A fabric having such a pattern.
I am a huge fan of stripes in my fashion closet I do have several pieces of stripe shirts and even a stripe dress. Also, in Interior Design stripes are very popular, in pillows, sofas, dining chairs and even wallpaper. Since the weather is getting “warmer” it is time to dust off your stripes and wear them or design your house with them. A few images that have inspired me to either design or wear stripes ( images are from pinterest and google)

Gingham Style

gingham

Gingham style has no right or wrong side with respect of its color.

When you think of Gingham what pops into my mind, a warm summer day laying outside with a picnic basket with some very close friends laughing and drinking lemonade.

As an Interior Designer, gingham means French country style that is not entirely true. You can mix and match gingham fabrics with other styles. Having the small checks usually black and white, but hot off the New York Fashion week gingham checks are in all different colors. (all images are from google)

For Interiors like I have stated before you can use gingham fabrics in different styles  of homes in different places.
