Seize the day





The roof terrace is tiny but man, does it take time to organize it.
Either we're busy with other things, either it's too hot up there to bring it to life.
This evening at last, Monchéri put a sofa-bed which I covered with a pale green fabric. I'm still looking for an old trunk to use as a coffee table.

And we still have to build a little pergola up there. I'm making small mirrors with driftwood (well I'm trying to).
Little by little, we'll make a cozy nest.

But just for now, I placed some beach mats on the tiled floor and threw a couple of Moroccan cushions for us to sit
and enjoy a pink Martini on the rocks with the leftovers of a taboulé salad.

Summer is too short not to seize the day !


ps :
my vision of the roof terrace is : straw mats on the floor, no table, poufs, white veils with yellow and turquoise small tassels, small mirrors with driftwood, a little pergola with a canopy of palm tree leaves over the sofa bed, low Moroccan tray-tables and a general palette of pink, orange and turquoise and pale green.....
this is all I think....Wish me Bon courage because as you can see, I still have way to go!

Lala--truly sometimes you are my muse! LOL
I have been trying to "seize the day" at every turn this summer--to make it a life of joy and color.
My patio, however, is lacking and I haven't tackled it for a variety of reasons...too hot...and etc.
But you are right...one must seize it at all costs before it is gone. August will be the month of the patio!!
Thank you as always for your inspiration! :)
