It’s hot. And humid. Some of you are dreaming of pumpkin spice and fall leaves. (Not me, my hydrangeas are just now blooming and I’ll take tropical any day, pumpkin.) Shorter days and bonfire weather are on the horizon, but today’s parade of inspiring interiors and exteriors celebrate rich coastal luxe and barefoot elegance. Love walls of white shiplap and wainscot? You’ll find ’em in these coastal moments. Organic materials, natural woven textures, and delicious color accents? Oui, madame.
