Summer Coffee Table with Chairish

Summer is quickly coming to an end ... with only two weeks left to enjoy the long days and lazy evenings.  I know I am not happy about the close of another summer season where evenings can linger in the den for hours around the coffee table with family and friends.  I am doing all I can to soak up every single minute available to us.


Since the transformation of our den we have spent more and more time in the space enjoying the light.  With the long summer evenings sitting in the den has been such a treasure.  The Hubs and I will sit on the couch enjoy a drink (or two) a little snack and then he will head out to the deck to grill dinner.  In the busy world we all live in it is so essential for us to stop and connect for a few minutes.


I love the size of our vintage bamboo coffee table.  It is quite large and holds all of my favorite books, some amazing small items and of course my favorite candle and custom matches.  It also allows us to have a space for our drinks and appetizer.  When we have more than the two of us to serve I can even add it a tray for more drinks.  


My favorite online source for pieces like our table is Chairish.  Hands down the best selection of vintage and antique pieces, easy shipping and incredible customer service.  If only I had come up with this idea on my own.  #right?


Recently when I needed some extra blue and white pieces for our bookcases I immediately searched the site and found more than I could hope for, even struggling to make a final decision.  The prices and the selection was perfect.  I can't wait to receive my new beauties which will be perfect for the top of the bookcases.



I am squeezing in all I can of the last of the summer hydrangeas, adding more of them to the house the minute they begin to fade.  I told you I am not ready to say goodbye to my favorite season.  I also added a few large roses paired with mint just in case we decided our Gin + Tonics needed a little something extra.


Since our lives began together in Florida I refuse to let little tidbit go.  We may live in Georgia but our home is full of Palm Beach chic style.  Since my husband grew up in Palm Beach county we have so many amazing Palm Beach books which feel like home to him.  These Palm Beach frosted glasses from Cat Studio fit in perfectly and I love using them for our cocktail hours.  The colors couldn't be more perfect for our home!



You will find me here every single evening for the next two weeks while it is still too warm outside to truly enjoy the porch.  And I am happy as a clam to soak up the sunset indoors in our den with my better half enjoying our den.

  1. I love the table...and the rug...and your entire house! Your use of color is just mesmerizing to me. I have to have color but you do such a marvelous job of mixing and matching. Enjoy those cocktails! :) I think it's awesome that you two take the time to connect and relax a bit.

    Now I'm a lover of fall and can't wait!! Sorry...
