    Let's put it this way: We've been spending a lot of time on Pinterest, searching the term "cabana." But, in truth, we don't even have a pool. That doesn't mean we can't dream, right? Amid exploring countless color-soaked boards, we knew we'd found the perfect combination of summery and beach chic when we caught wind of this fresh Spring '12 Moschino look. It's the ideal inspiration for our fantasy poolside chill chamber!

    But intersecting organic down-to-earth neutrals with streaks of black and white doesn't have to be confined to our pipe-dream pool house. This graphic palate is also a great foundation for one's current L.A. interior to keep things feeling warm, light, and just dressed up enough all year long.

    The key is to pare things down with neutral weaves and kick it up with just the right amount of sleek ebony to keep things feeling crisp. So, if when that fantasy hilltop Mid-Century modern becomes a reality, your d├ęcor will be prepped and ready to move right in!
