after the beach




Summer in the west, sand on the floor. I watch the restful Zara Home Autumn/Winter 2015 Campaign Film; it gives a sense that everyone will be home any minute now, and that they will all be fine.

  1. Hello Mise
    Your home looks very welcoming and colourful. Hope you are having a wonderful summer.
    I loved the Zara film. A great store

    1. Dear Helen, I thought of you as we drove through the pretty villages of Cork. I hope your year is taking a turn for the better.

    2. Hello Mise, Please stop in next time you are driving through Cork. I would love to see you and have you for tea. Fond wishes.

  2. Oh Mise, to feel actual sand from a nearby beach on the floor where I live would be so, so much better than to try to identify with the Zara film, beautiful, as it is in its fantasy.

    Of course, I'd also love for at least one more room in my current dwelling place to absorb my increasing clutter. Another reason to embrace the great outdoors this July as NYC seems to be going through a coolish phase.

    Great to see your post. Happy Summer. xo

    1. I'm sure your clutter is of such an individual and artistic nature that the word clutter doesn't even apply, Frances. I picture your apartment as an eclectic salon with homebaked cookies and beautifully bound books, myself perched on an occasional chair being made welcome with the finest tea.

    2. Thank you, Mise. As Julie Andrews (yes, that one) once said to me, "that would be lovely." (I'd offered to gift wrap a present she'd purchased for a friend.)

  3. Mise,
    The Zara-Home-film is beautiful and captures the feeling!
    I just re-moved all our furniture into different rooms (well - two hired men did it - and of course the kitch'n remained the kitchen - but it looks differently, I added some things (e,g, my huge collection of cookbooks) and now it is cozy!).
    I got a lot of inspiration by a young friend whom I visited in Hamburg - he is an artist and a marvel at decorating, and together we "work" through the ample furniture shops in Hamburg. Now I'll definitely look up Zarah home in Berlin.

    1. The rearranging of furniture is the stuff of life, dear Britta. I rarely find people who agree with me but here you are.

  4. A very nice film of domestic perfection-- which, of course, would be instantly ruined if there were actually any people, kids, dogs running around!

    1. They would have to drift around in crumpled linens and chiffons, looking a bit faraway in their thoughts. My own home life, really.

  5. Mmmmmm …. idyllic living, not really real life. I LOVE Zara though, especially kid's clothes. Are they your wetsuits, hanging up to dry Mise ? XXXX

    1. The daughters' wetsuits, Jacqueline. To protect them from the perceived Seaweed Menace.

  6. Dear Mise, I definitely need another dose of the beach before the end of summer!!
    Off to watch the Zara Home film!

    1. Hello Karena. Ceramics are my favourite art form. I am so glad to see that they have come to America.

  7. I do like a lawn given a chance to grow, even if it means more work later, in the mowing. (Impressive vanity plate on the motor, too, though I suspect digital shenanigans.)

    1. Digital shenanigans indeed, Stan, how hastily executed so ever, for the sake of privacy.

    2. A 'so ever' in the wild, and the west Irish wild at that! My day is made.

  8. I could put "beachmobile" over my Golf number plates and sit dreamily at the wheel in the driveway playing Beach Boys tracks. Just like a Zara Campaign Film. Wouldn't it be nice?

    1. It would. You would have to wear flowers in your hair, but that is surely par for the course with you?

  9. Bucolic in a jauntily beachified way ! Looks like a very happy summer, dear Mise ... I'm counting the sleeps until spring. Only 17 to go.

    1. Would that he were, dear Elaine. Would that I could leave a comment on your blog.

  11. That Zara film is scare-y ...
    They've matched the wine to the cushions , for heaven's sake !

  12. Wow the grass grows quick where you live - how quickly it has obliterated any signs of the vehicle having been moved!
