Beach Week: Inspired by Seal Beach






















Our fancy imaginary beach house today is well matched to a few elegant items:
  1. Bathing Suit - Love this sleek gray suit with leaf detail at the neck.
  2. Stationary - Classic Crane's notes with a sailboat design. I had a set of these in ivory once.
  3. Tunic - In crisp white from Steven Alan.
  4. Lamp - Crystal teardrop base with a silk shade.
  5. Book - Sense and Sensibility's coastal setting is just right for beach reading.
  6. Dutch Oven - In copper, an elegant way to roast mussels.
  7. Chair - Directors chairs should make a comeback.
  8. Necklace - A Babylonian piece in lapis from The Met.
  9. Sofa - In elegant light blue from Anthropologie.
When I win the lottery and buy this home, you're all invited over for crab around my mid-century teak table lit with glass oil lamps.
