I have been on the hunt for a low sideboard to separate my dining table from my kitchen. This O’Day Buffet from Cottage & Bungalow would be the perfect solution. I love the vibrant colors and their names–Key West Teal with Mojito Cubby Boxes. I also love the drawer shapes: three wide and three thin with a stack of cubbies. The asymmetry of the drawers adds another layer of whimsy, mixed with the color palette and scalloped frill.

It seems that you can’t turn around these days without running into an amazing outdoor fabric. (Designer Molly McGinness shared a few of her favorites here recently.) I certainly wouldn’t mind kicking back in a pile of pillows covered in Osborne & Little‘s Zancudo fabrics. Named for a Costa Rican beach, they’d bring a bit of zest to any New England patio.

If you happened to catch my post last Wednesday, you can tell I’m on a pillow kick. A visit to the Greenwich, Connecticut, store Tiger Lily almost put me over the edge, though, when I saw the collection of cool accents designed by Samantha Knapp. Equestrian bits, Greek key ribbon and burlap all serve as inspiration for her line, but it was Faboo Bamboo accented with ostrich that I almost couldn’t leave behind.
