Take The Plunge

"Oh the wild joys of living! The leaping from rock to rock...the cool silver shock of the plunge in a pool's living waters." -Robert Browning

Happy weekend, all! Are you ready to jump into June? This morning I'm thinking of a friend who gets the keys to her new home today.  She's got a little bit of a project ahead of her, but she's starting the work in the just the right place--plunging into the pool and landscaping.  

 The Backyard Oasis

I can't wait to lounge poolside and catch up on all the girl talk when it's done! Her projects always come out beautifully, so it's sure to be gorgeous. She's a sworn member of the "never-too-much-blue-and-white club", so I'm picturing graphic navy paired with classic white.

Here's to taking the plunge! For more poolside inspiration, Barbara from Haus Design treated us to two fantastic pool posts this week. 

Will you be plunging headfirst into any big projects this month? Or do you plan to kick back by the pool?

  1. My life feels like one big project:) But yes many small ones on the front and back burners, but hoping to turn it down a notch so I can enjoy some time relaxing this summer, thats what its about afterall, right? Love the images and your friend from the never too much blue and white club sounds like someone I could become fast friends with:) Have a great weekend!

  3. Luckily we have a very nice town pool so that's where we'll be hanging and I'm pushing off the kitchen renovation until next year! Looking forward to a cool, calm summer! Happy weekend, Jeanne, and see you soon.

  4. No pools around here but we do have lakes but to cold right now. Funny but I have a friend who just got the keys to her new home last night. It's exciting to see what our friends will do with their new abodes.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  8. Love all this blue and white. I can honestly say I am nearing the "kick back by the pool" phase. Everything may not be done...but it's close enough and I for one, plan to enjoy summer!!!

    Hope you get to lounge a bit this weekend!!!
