17 Jun Our Summer Essentials
We ladies of ISABELLA love summertime. We’re excited for summer rituals like weekends at the beach and Saturday mornings at the farmer’s market, even if a little social distancing is required. We look forward to stylin’ in summer dresses and sipping cocktails on the porch. We crave time outside, whether it’s working up a sweat on a good run, playing in the dirt in our gardens, or entertaining our families on the deck. As designers we love to make our living spaces a little more lovely and summer is the perfect time for working on our outdoors (read more inspiration on this blog post).
Are you ready for some summer goodness? Maybe a little alfresco dining on your patio or just taking a siesta in the sun on a groovy beach blanket?
We thought we’d share a few of our favorite summer things with you to greet the summer solstice and the start of this new season.

Once the beach blanket is laid on the sand or grass, it’s time to set up a summer picnic with some yummy drinks and fare. Robin loves Trader Joe’s jalapeño Limeade for the perfect summer margarita, just the right amount of heat and sweet!

Rattan, bamboo, wicker and natural wood are all great textures to introduce to your interior or exterior spaces during this time of year. Bryn‘s summer pick for seating is the chic Sol Dolphin Daybed from Article.
We’re all obsessing over these bamboo hurricanes that just arrived in our shop …
We also have more candles + diffusers to bring you fresh summer feels, available for delivery or pick-up. Patti is currently on the hunt for vintage glass objects for her interiors, inspired by a favorite IG feed.
