Happy Friday, y’all! It’s absolutely impossible for us to look at these photos of Celerie Kemble’s Dominican Republic bungalow, affectionately named “Casa Guava,” and not feel inspired by all the curiosities, color, pattern, and surroundings. And did you know that you can actually stay here?!? It’s part of the Playa Grande Beach Club… make sure you take a peek, but fair warning it’s going to give you a major case of wanderlust! We’ve rounded up our favorite finds of the week directly influenced by this charming space!
1. There’s just something so HAPPY about tropical interiors! From saturated colors, to warm natural elements, to touches of whimsy… we are so inspired by homes engulfed with elements that pay homage to the sea, sand, and palms. One way to achieve this aesthetic in your own home is with the use of rattan, playful patterns, and layers of curiosities. Looking to add a touch of the Caribbean to your space? Snap up this white daybed, this sky blue wicker chair, this rattan parasol table lamp and this palm wallpaper!
2. Are you a handbag aficionado like us? We ADORE this white wicker purse, this leather bucket bag, this green woven bag, and this wicker tote with leather handles. Looking for a deal? This embroidered straw bag is on sale for $53! And because every once in a while you need to spurge on yourself we are eyeing this large leather tote (SWOON!). You can shop all our favorite handbags here!
3. Maybe it’s because we just rewatched the Slim Aarons documentary, “The High Life”, on Amazon, but we just can’t get enough of his work! He truly created timeless magic! How amazing would this iconic piece look over a bar, or in a wallpapered powder room? Or this legendary Palm Beach shot over a patterned sofa? A few of our other favorite pieces include this tennis court shot, this snorkeling in the shallows shot, and this bougainvillea beauty.
4. On the hunt for a new hat in anticipation of sunnier days ahead? We adore this tall straw option, this frayed edge Panama hat, and this breezy bucket hat. Want to see what made our jaws drop? We’re crushing on this green Gucci beauty and this sophisticated hat with floral ribbon.
5. Nothing captivates us more than a pretty dress. How gorgeous is this new delicate floral lace midi dress by Draper James?!? We’re also crushing hard on this cotton voile dress, this turquoise maxi dress, this striped faux wrap dress, this tropical hi-low silk dress (currently 30% off), and this printed bow dress. Can you believe that this floral maxi is under $50?
6. In the market for a swimsuit upgrade? We can’t say enough amazing things about this Marysia scallop one piece. It truly is our very favorite! We’re also loving this nautical striped one piece, this scoop-back gingham ruffle suit, and this high-waisted toile suit.
7. With spring just around the corner we’re thinking of all the ways we want to refresh our home! Have you guys checked out The Home Depot’s website recently? We love how they always offer leading brand names, at every day low prices! We are loving this rattan armchair, this natural barstool, this wicker outdoor furniture, and these white side chairs.
8. All of this daydreaming of warm tropical places has us thinking about our favorite source for travel accessories and luggage. Mark & Graham just released this new cosmetic case and we couldn’t have hit “add to cart” quick enough! Speaking of other new arrivals we love this charger rollup in leather - it’s the perfect way to pack all your electronics. And how chic is this convertible backpack? It’s so ideal if you need a piece that can easily transform from day to night. Last, but not least this Italian canvas bag is on major sale - snap it up before it’s too late!
9. Wanting to escape to the tropics, but realistically confined to your couch? Transport yourself to an island state of mind with some of our favorite coffee table books! We adore India Hick’s: Island Style, Bunny William’s: A House By The Sea, Amanda Lindroth’s: Island Hopping, and Slim Aarons: Poolside. Happy reading!
10. You know we can’t resist a chic set of pajamas especially when they are on MAJOR SALE… we are loving this luxe caftan, this floral pajama set, and this mandarin pajama set! And the best part is you can add a pair of fun heels and statement earrings.
Have a fantastic weekend, y'all! Happy shopping!
