I know that Summer is still a hop, skip and roughly a mere month away, however, I am anxiously awaiting its arrival.  I love a long summer's day filled with sun drenched afternoons sipping fresh squeezed lemonade and warm evenings with just the slightest cool breeze.  During the summer I tend to feel sea-inspired, switching out my spring table linens to nautical napkins or textural woven placemats.  Also, I strategically place my hurricane candles to give off a fabulous glow and taking out my seasonal shelled accessories is a must.  Pottery Barn is peppered with fabulous finds that make it easy to bring the deep sea indoors.

How cute is the PB Seahorse pillow on the left?? (the fish is darling too)

This PB pillow says Nautical all over

Even if you are miles from the beach, you can easily bring the  beach to you with these fun and fabulous items.
