Happy Labor Day Weekend

We've been trying to squeeze every last bit of summer in before September brings thoughts of a new season.  I just got back from a vacation at Bethany Beach, Delaware, and Bethany is still there with her family. (Yes, that's where she got her name! It's been our family's vacation spot since the 1950's.)

Also, I must brag on her and her recent achievement from campaigning her 2 year old English Bulldog, Seamus, in dog shows this summer, culminating last weekend in his AKC Championship in Springfield, Massachusetts!

Presenting CH Peaksview's Shameless James:

I hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day weekend. 
Here's a corner of a room that inspired me lately:

Alexa Hampton's room at 2014 Kips Bay Decorator's Show House-
really out-of-the-box and I love it.
This room has movement, texture, pattern, line, color, balance, contrast; all good things, with an added touch of whimsy. 

See you in September!
