C.Blau Handbags

Everyone deserves a quite respite at the end of the day.  A space to unwind, refresh and just breathe.  For me, this area is usually somewhere outside.  While I would be just as happy to find solitude barefoot under a shady tree, I decided to put together a more sophisticated (yet totally relaxed) getaway on our back patio.  I love the idea of a daybed.  It functions as a sofa, but can transfix to a lofty place of slumber if the mood strikes.  

I found this daybed at World Market.  I was really impressed with the ease of the design and feel like it looks way more expensive than it really is.  Add a few large euro pillows and a throw and you’re ready for a reading OR sleeping spot.  The curtains are also from World Market, although I think they were intended to be used as table cloths.  I added drapery clips to be able to move the curtains easily, depending on the location of the sun.  

I decided to add some shade/part-sun loving greenery to soften to look.  A large fig tree in the corner balances out the draping ferns and begonias.   A hawiian sunset vine creeps up the side wall.  We’ll see where it decides to go once it reaches the top!

Can you find Olive?
