Summer Soiree Inspired by Chevron Tile

When I first spotted this purple and white subway tile chevron print, I became short of breath.  Not only am I obsessed with chevron (probably in large part due to Missoni), but how often do you see purple tile?! 


The bold color and pattern immediately made me envision a pretty market in Barcelona or perhaps a hotel lobby in Cabo san Lucas.   With the bold color and summery feel, I used this tile pattern to inspire a summertime soiree...




The soiree would be a casual affair held in a pretty backyard.   There would be tea candles lining the table and lots of red wine on hand.

To sit in: Wooden picnic chairs lined with a vine of pretty flowers
To sip: Blackberry champagne cocktails (get the recipe here)
To snack on: Figs with gorgonzola
To wear: A classic lavender tee with a pencil skirt, paired with a messy bun and pearls.

I love when a simple image can spark a whole new idea.  I hope to create interiors one day with elements that inspire!
