Summer at the Beach

We are now featuring our summer theme, Beach Cottage Retreat, in our room at Poppyseeds.

If you have a party coming up this summer, we have some terrific decor ideas - like using old Scrabble game boards as placemats and Scrabble tiles as placemarkers! (People LOVED that at the show last weekend). You'll find vintage papers and old books to create invitations and banners, as well.

Whether you live near the water on a lake, river, ocean, or stream, or even in a high-rise mid-town apartment, you can surround yourself with the carefree style of a beach cottage all year long. These lighthearted colors and styles make every day a vacation...

From American Country style or Swedish Traditional to Cottage Chic, crisp white with accents of red and blue are a classic look at any time of year. Visit Poppyseeds in Stanwood, Washington to see these products from Retreat.

Next up for us is the late August Sand Point Antique & Design Market in Seattle, and a September Paris Flea Market in Mill Creek. Stay tuned for more info soon... we'll have some lovely fall seasonal decor styles in store for you!
