Summer Made Etsy

As Brian and I prepared for our summer guests, we wanted them to feel welcome and comfortable. One way to succeed in this goal was to make sure our guest rooms are bright, cheery and relaxing.

That’s where etsy.com came in handy. As I was putting the finishing touches on our guest room, I discovered these hand painted nautical flag pillows from “Simply Nautical”. Based in Annapolis, artist Jessica Moran creates her hand painted pillows using acrylic paint on canvas. Each pillow case is natural in color and 14 inches by 14 inches in size. All pillows have an envelope closure in the back so you can place or change the pillow insert easily. You can purchase a pillow based on the design you like, or use them to spell out a word or monogram. For our pillows I chose the letter W and the letter E for WatersEdge. 

Another great etsy find were these hand painted directional signs by SweetNCCollective. Usually used for weddings and receptions, I decided to buy two signs to give our guests an idea of where to go during the day. Thankfully, the options are simple. Either head to the beach or to the house for some cocktails! I worked with Meg Lane to create my whimsical signs and when I received them, I coated them with sealant to make them more weather resistant.

As you get ready to host your guests, take a fresh look at your guest rooms and see what you can do to make their stay relaxing and refreshing.
