Cabana Summer

We've been having beautiful weather for the past few days ... making me wish that summer lasted forever!  I'm especially enjoying the extra sunshine in our secret garden-esque backyard - which seems like it was perfectly designed for those long lazy summer days!  From our sparkling pool to the serene atmosphere of lush bushes and trees ... it's almost perfect expect for the small eye sore of a spot around the corner of the left side of our house.

Our house came with quite a surprise - a built-in wooden pergola with an above ground spa jacuzzi hidden inside ... what's wrong with that you may say ... I guess not much other than a probably disease infected 15 year old jacuzzi and a rotting deck underneath ... Once removed, it's actually the perfect spot for my dream cabana oasis!

All of our resources are 100% dedicated to the interior of our home ... so for now a little dreaming will have to go a long way ....

Can you think of a more perfect way to spend a summer afternoon than taking a mid-day nap underneath a whimsical canopy? ... did I mention warm fuzzy kittens included?

What could be more fun that having brunch or some afternoon drinks with your favorite people in this ultra sexy coral oasis!

Although these rainbow cabanas are breath taking ... I think I would prefer the simple sophistication of white and black for my own backyard!

In particular, I've had my eye on this bold black & white stripped beauty from ZGallerie -although the pattern is very in your face ... it's still very classic and would go well with any color palette.
