Summertime ..summertime ...

I am of the opinion that shade is very underrated. In the summer , in the south, we have so much humidity that I have come to call SHADE...  my special friend. It  is 99 degrees today and I have been working in and out of the heat for several hours. Forget looking calm , cool and collected. A hot mess is what is the agenda for today… Welcome to summer.!!!
This past spring, I worked on an interesting vacation home on a quite shaded street in the middle of Tybee Island. I helped them finish the upstairs rooms and create a wonderful library with great  comfortable white leather chairs and fun and funky little touches. I keep thinking about this special place because it has wonderful shade and I would love a cool quiet corner of the world  right about now.

a great large open space with lots of room for yoga , art projects , naps and cocktails 

I fell in love with this little truck and it inspired me for the room

It is pet friendly with great porches, high ceiling and LOTS of shade…...

The architecture and the windows are all placed as if you were in a tree house. I watched it being built and was so delighted when I had a chance to go inside when it was finished.

Here are a few photos of the interiors and the very relaxing and cool sleeping porch….Shade  shade shade.. wonderful shade
welcome to
All DEY SANCTUARY  we are a pet friendly retreat

How delightful is this space and how interesting with the mix of natural elements

a wonderful place for alone time...

for pondering the universe  or for having a "Big Chill ' party with old friend or new

the perfect place for a diner party…..I call it "Bed and Breakfast"
It is rented by Tybee… there are great photos on the website of all the great spaces and details. All Dey Sanctuary 1115 Solomon Ave.   Enjoy!!!
