Summer Treat



Every summer I buy myself a new home decor book to pour over outside while I am watching the little one or just relaxing on the patio. 
This year this is what I chose. Vintage Chic from Cabbages and Roses. I had to pre-order it as it has not been released yet but I just can't wait to see it.  Best part the book was $19.77 and I had $15 dollars in my Amazon account from Swagbucks so I didn't have to pay much for the book at all.


Here is the Amazon description:
The Cabbages & Roses look is simple to achieve, welcoming and versatile. Popular as never before, romantic country style is here to stay. Vintage Chic inspires you to create this timeless and accessible look in your own home. Exquisite textiles in delightful faded colours and patterns are used to great effect to create a mood of living that evokes memories of old roses, charming ancient cottages and endless summer days. Masterminded by Christina Strutt, owner of textiles firm Cabbages & Roses, the room-by-room tour of the best of this new decoration shows hundreds of ideas on how to make the most of fresh colours, faded fabrics and junk market finds. Moving through the main living areas of the home, from summer living rooms splashed with soft florals, to family kitchens overflowing with mismatched glass, crockery and cushions through dreamy rose-pink bedrooms, the book also includes romantic hideaways and retreats; entertaining in the country garden, a converted train and even a child's secret treehouse.
