Inspired: Under Parasols at the Beach

I've been feeling really inspired by watery, oceanic blues, neutral hues, and my beloved persimmon palette. And maybe it's the return of Mad Men, but I've been dreaming of life in the '60s. My favorite midcentury style isn't the prim and proper Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce secretary look, though . . . it's the delicate, elegant Givenchy wardrobe of Audrey Hepburn in films like How to Steal a Million and Breakfast at Tiffany's.

So when I came across this 1963 Vogue photograph by Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Under the Parasols at the Beach ($149 and up) in the Condé Nast Store, I instantly gravitated toward it — those hats are so Audrey! I thought the image would be the perfect inspiration for a calm, cool, and warm little sitting room. From the rouge notes and oceanic art to the swimsuit-inspired x-based stool and both wicker and knit materials, I've dreamed up a beachy haven of my own. Click on each of the product images to shop this look. Enjoy.
