Good Morning! Yesterday I went over to my friends house for a cup of coffee and was greeted with this! Delightful! Iced coffee, home made muffins and a super chic parrot tray? YES! So I snapped a few pictures and promptly informed her that she would be on the blog tomorrow. Later that day, I hit up the antiquated, quaint and kitschy town of Ocean Grove for lunch (Yes, it is all three of those things.) And it got me thinking about New Jersey style. I think New Jersey has been getting a bad rap – It’s not all gilded mansions, and marble mausoleums (Echem, Teresa…) it’s mostly all of the things I grew up around and now associate with Grandma… wicker, white painted furniture with curved legs, antiques, retro signage from a better time, cabana stripes and 70s chic poolsides… Maybe its because I’m so used to it, and the look is so heavily steeped in nostalgia for me, but I really like the “Jersey Shore” style… Seaside country time, meets faded glamour. And so I bring you: Palm Springs by Way of New Jersey: The shop the look edition. Enjoy!
So what do you think? Have I convinced you? Can nostalgia be a viable decorating style?
Have a great day everyone!
