Coastal Style Fabric Bundle – This week’s giveaway!

#bedroomstyle giveaway at www.aprilrosenthal.com

Is your style Coastal? Do you love whites, and blues, and sea foam green, and aqua, aqua, aqua? Does the salt air make you swoon, and the rough texture of rope catch your eye?

In my new book, Bedroom Style, Perfectly Pieced, coastal style is one of 5 featured design styles–and I give so many tips on how to achieve that beachy coastal style you’ve admired on your favorite blogs and home decorating shows. Coastal style is beautiful, and extremely popular right now, so jump in make your room the perfect shoreside oasis.

I chose a beautiful fabric bundle from Kate Spain’s upcoming Paradiso collection for Moda to give away this week–so you can make your very own Breaking Tide quilt. A simple pattern with big impact, Breaking Tide is the perfect complement to your bedroom.

And look at the beautiful accessories you could win to complement your new coastal quilt!

Monday morning.

I know a lot of people have a hard time with Mondays.

Turns out I really like them. I mean, of course it’s not fun to clean up from the fallout of the weekend. But I enjoy being able to have a fresh start, see how much better this week can be than the last one. I guess it’s like starting a new year, only on a smaller scale. A more manageable scale. So! Today, my plan is to take back some library books, return a swimsuit (or two!) that just don’t work (thanks Costco!), dream up some new projects in the hammock while the kiddos ride some bikes, and hopefully (crossing fingers) put a few plants in the ground. I know it’s crazy late, but the weather has been so ridiculous around here, I’m only now starting to trust that the snow might not come back for a few months. Send some good weather vibes my way, would ya? I’d really like some flowers in my flower beds, and a few veggies in my garden. (And NOT what happened last year.)

What are YOU doing on this lovely Monday?
