Because Summer time means more time in the water than out of it. Here are last week’s water portraits for week #24. I hope you are having a terrific Summer.
Most of the times I wear the mom hat, a few times the unpleasant referee hat, sometimes the very likable designer hat, and in a few instances the party planner hat. I will most certainly not take any credit for this beautiful celebration my sisters planned for both their Swedish husbands’ 40th birthday. But I can say that I was there giving one too many opinions and snapping a few pictures before the sunset. With a high percentage of rain in the forecast, we crossed our fingers and hoped for a beautiful afternoon to enjoy with good friends, family, and good food.
This garden party took place a few weeks ago. This duo birthday party was celebrated following the wonderful Midsummer Swedish tradition. We decorated the backyard with garland lights, white linens, flowers, a traditional Swedish maypole, and a few Swedish flags sprinkled here and there.
Midsummer is an occasion for large gatherings in Sweden. Friends and family gather for the most typical Swedish tradition of all. This celebration was originally a fertility festival with many customs and rituals associated with the hope for a good harvest the coming fall/autumn. Swedes dance around a decorated midsummer pole while listening to traditional folk songs known to all.
I wish I had taken more pictures of the festivities as the night got darker so I could record how truly amazing this celebration was in more details. My brothers (in-law) were so happy to celebrate with friends that flew in from Sweden, Peru, Brazil, and their local friends we get to see every day. Heck, I say we make this a yearly traditional so we get to taste a little bit of Sweden again and again.

We tackled some new wallpaper photography last week and here is what we have to share. The new Seeing Stars wallpaper design in gray + the gorgeous Hive pattern installed in a kids’ room. All modern, a bit monochromatic and just timeless.
Trendy Peas’ new wallpaper is a revolutionary self-adhesive fabric based medium that does not require pasting and can be used in place of the traditional wallpaper. It can be applied to any non-porous flat surface including walls, doors, and windows. Our paste free wallpaper does not leave residue behind and does not require expert installation, repair or removal. Its low tack, repositionable adhesive backing makes wall covering so easy to install that you won’t need to pay for a professional to do it for you, saving time and money.

Beach portraits are though! The sun was hitting us strong and the sand was all over my lenses. Yuck! But even with the harsh light, I managed to snap a few photos of the gang that I will cherish forever. Not sure if any of these will make to the annual family album, but I still enjoy capturing these moments that are zooming by way too quickly.
Happy Friday! Summer is for beach fun, sticky fingers, chalk sidewalks and off course, lemonade! So please say hello to our new lemonade art print below. This colorful and fruity art print is ready to bring some tasteful design to a playroom, kids’ room, or even your kitchen. We paired the new lemonade art print below with our new fun Streamer wall decal and our popular Grid pillow. Greens and black combined with the perfect hint of lemon yellow make this space feel so airy and very, very fresh.
We are back installing yet another chandelier at the Cancado residence. I am happy to say that this chandelier installation went on without any hiccups. And we are loving this new piece in the newly remodeled Trendy Peas’ office.
If you read this post here, you will remember we only needed the new coffee table and new chandelier to arrive so we could finish the remodeling project of Trendy Peas’ office space. Well, both pieces have arrived and they look amazing. We will do a full tour of the new studio as soon as we can. We just need some time out to organize the fun Summer chaos with all the kids out of school. So before the actual office tour happens, I will just leave you drooling over this gorgeous mobile chandelier. Isn’t it darling? Its antique bronze color is the perfect match for the newly painted gray cabinets. And with its adjustable arms and contemporary shape, this mobile chandelier is bringing a beautiful and dramatic effect into our studio.

Oh, and check back this Friday for a couple free goodies.
It is time to kick off Summer with lots of pool time in the sunshine. Last Sunday the little guy finally got the courage to put his face under water. Quickly the goggles were in place, the floaties were put aside and he started his swim quest by saying: “- Mama, if I go under, you go under.” And we did, over and over and over and over again.
