A gorgeous set of photos was posted at Nice Spice, which recently discovered The Beach Studios. It's a good bet if you're looking for glamorous, warm-weather-worthy scenes to inspire you.

In the first, I love the distressed white of the furniture, the slick, shiny white of the floor, and the faded sea blues and greens on the cushions. Still, it could be anywhere inland, with heavy wooden doors that stand open into a woodsy lane or English garden.

he second is so like the Cape or some secluded inlet with distressed wood boards and peeling iron bedsteads. Doors on both sides have only curtains and allow the air to flow through. The writing desk, chandelier, mirrors, and reading lamp are refined and appropriate. I'd love to go to sleep here after a long day swimming in a lake.
