First off - thank you all so much for your support of Rue! The Twitter, Facebook, and list-serve have grown so quickly, and we're seeing it pop up on blogs everywhere! Thank you, thank you! Believe me when I say we are working our butts off to make sure the premiere issue impresses.
But now, back to Martha's Vineyard. Nate's cousins rented a beach house in Oak Bluffs and it was oh-so charming, I immediately started snapping pictures when I walked in (even though everyone was lounging around eating breakfast - they've seen the blog, they understand).
The old oil lanterns and the thrift store art hung in a column add to the charm of the space. And how great does that dark espresso-colored mantel look against the white wall?
Sign me up for striped floors!
The entire place was painted white with accents in various colors of water - teal, sky blue, grey, etc. Pretty sure the dining chairs are Pottery Barn.
Rocking chairs everywhere! Every Gingerbread house in Oak Bluffs has a row of rocking chairs lining their massive front porch.
Oh, and did I mention the hydrangeas?! How could I forget? As soon as we pulled into Cape Cod, it was all I could talk about.
They are just so BLUE!
And they are EVERYWHERE! I just wanted to grab a pair of shears and go to town on them. What amazing centerpieces they'd be at my sister's beach wedding!
