sweet, unique boutiques. Independent shops that cater to their customers
that they know so well. One such place is right off the 101 in California ...
in the charming, coastal village of Summerland. And it's name?
Rue de Lillie......
Just the name alone tugs at my heart!!
A cottage nestled on the side of the hill that has been converted into a haven
for all things french inspired and vintage. They leave no spot untouched
including where you must park the car. A little gravel area on the side of the
cottage, where you are greeted by a large vintage birdcage, complete with
mourning doves cooing their welcome to you!
A porch that leaves no doubt that you have arrived at a place to find
treasures . Some rustic and some......
.. some high end. It's all in the details, right? That is what makes a house
a home and lets others know that this is your abode. Whispers of your own
unique voice tucked here and there. And that is what you will find at Rue
de Lillie. Inspiration that triggers how you can create an inviting environment.
Treasures spied in every nook and cranny. Have patience. Take your
time and you will make some wonderful discoveries. Such as....
This is just a sampling... something to pique your interest. Perhaps you're
wondering what I decided to take away with me as a memory of having spent
time in this cottage by the ocean. Well, this......
A sweet lumbar pillow that rests on my slipper chair. A lovely piece of vintage
toile fabric sewn on cream colored linen. I love it! Next time I am in the area
I most certainly will drop by this piece of french country heaven again! Just as
I always have....without hesitation!!!
