When I was switching my youngest son out of his crib to his “big boy bed”, I turned to a local talent, Julia B. Years later, I am still enthusiastic about the results of his daybed and his monogrammed linens.
After taking a short break and closing that particular boutique, Julia returned with her gorgeous linens at the New York Internatioanl Gift Fair in January. I now see that she is carried by numerous retailers around the world, including some favorites of mine. Circa in Charlotte, NC & Madison in Dallas, TX!
Julia’s cocktail napkins were just profiled in House Beautiful in May!
Her online boutique should be up and running this summer, but in the meantime she has a few of her offerings available by email or phone. Love how these would elevate even a glass of lemonade!
What’s your summer beverage of choice? I’m partial to iced tea, lots of ice!

Elizabeth, your sons daybed is dreamy and GORGEOUS!! I can see why you still love it..its perfect. This is a great reminder of a wonderful resource for monogrammed goodies…..I personally am a monogrammed nut (thats the southerner in me, so I get it honestly:) Just beautiful!
Enjoy your day….
Things That Inspire says
I am developing a small obsession with cocktail napkins, especially monogrammed ones!
My favorite summer beverage – same as you, iced tea – always with a lemon. I have weaned myself off the sweet tea that is so prevalent in the south, but still like it unsweet (maybe with a dash of sweet and low).

What a darling room for a handsome young man! Love those houndstooth pillows!! Aren't swing arm lamps THE best??!! Really, really cute Elizabeth!! XO, Kelly
Love your son's daybed! I love anything w/ a monogram. I am a big iced tea drinker in the summer too. Have you tried the shaken iced tea from Starbucks? Yummy! xo

Susie @ Maddie's Nest says
Love your son's daybed and the rug! I am a sucker for monograms and love to give cocktail napkins as hostess gifts. As for drinks….love iced tea with lemon….or lately, just big glasses of water!
I Dream Of says
Make mine a Lillet Blanc over ice with a twist of orange in a pretty glass along with a monogrammed cocktail napkin, please! I love monograms and I think you can never have too many monogrammed napkins and guest towels around the house. Your son's bed is looks like such a cozy little nest!
Happy June, Elizabeth! XX
Iced tea with lime and lots of ice! Would love to meet JuliaB!

Sandy at Ooh La Frou Frou says
These are beautiful!!! I love collecting beautiful entertaining pieces, and monogrammed linen beverage coasters would be gorgeous!
Stephanie @ La Dolce Vita says
I love the way the bed looks – so charming! Favorite beverage of late has to be the Arnold Palmer, half lemonade, half iced tea. Which we MAY have dressed up a bit after the kids weren't around!
traci zeller designs says
Definitely iced tea! By the way, guess who just purchased a Peony Blanche candle from Nest? I'm blaming you for that … 😉
Hi – I love your son's upholstered bed, would you be so kind as to share the source?
Gorgeous textiles too!
THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE says
Oooh I love your son's daybed! And loving these linens too. They would work very well with a lemonade or an iced tea. I'd take either 🙂 xoxo
Privet and Holly says
I love iced
tea but am
as well : )
What an adorable
I love anything with a monogram. Your son's room is gorgeous and I love his linens!! My fav. drink in the summer is a cranberry spritzer. Half cranberry juice half sierra mist with a twist of lime. You have to drink it out of a pretty glass with a fun straw, taste so much better that way.
I posted my playroom reveal today, would love for you to come by,Kathysue
