"You know when you're at the beach that first day and the sun is shining and it's warm and you feel relaxed and comfortable? I want that same feeling," she says. "We're not at the ocean and it's not our second home, but I want it to feel that way all the time."
This quote is from a Washington Post article, If You Can't Have a Beach Cottage…Bring the Beach to Your House and the person being quoted is Lauren Russell, of Russell & Mackenna, a company that creates hand made, cottage-style furniture.
I could tell from the quote that Lauren shares my love of the beach and when the company contacted me to see if I would be interested in offering my readers a 40% discount on their painted and upholstered furniture, I knew I had to check them out. Discount? I love discounts and knowing that you probably do to I went to their website to see what their furniture looks like and to find out more about the company. I think you'll be as pleased as I was. Here's a few of my favorites:
Russell & Mackenna carries both upholstered and painted furniture. You have your choice of 33 colors for the painted furniture and the upholstered furniture is available in 53 fabric selections. You can also purchase the fabric by the yard! I love this! The company has been in too many magazines to mention here, but they do include some of my favorites such as, Coastal Living, O At Home, Southern Living, Ocean Home and House Beautiful. You can see the complete list here.
Now if you've been following me for a while, you know I want to live in a beach hut. When I saw this photo on the website, it made me wonder if I could become a 24/7 lifeguard and just live in one of their stations? Of course, I'd want one of these chairs and a hunky lifeguard to go with it. (And no, I'm not talking David Hasselhoff here.)
Maybe this one on Miami Beach

Oh sorry, lost my train of thought, back to the furniture.

The reporter from the Washington Post said about Lauren's home, "One step inside and you feel surprised that the surf and sand are not right outside the door." You can find that same feeling in your home and the furniture from Russell & Mackenna might just help you along.
