Awning Envy

I am very much loving these black and white window awnings.  I have no place for them but perhaps one day when I have beach house these awnings just might grace the windows.  Really, it is like the house is wearing a cute skirt, isn’t it?

    I know, isn’t it just sweet with the stripes! There is a little shop on Lincoln that had the black and white awnings, but sadly the awning is gone! The shop is still there, they have cute gift items but the awning is how I found it!

    I always have adored awnings, to me they are like “lampshades!”

    Those awnings are so fun and chic… and they look great with the green trees

    oh, aren’t they just the greatest things!!! – I live in a four storey apartment block – I think it would look super cute if all our windows had black and white awnings… x

    I secretly love awnings too, but would be scared they might be too hard to take care of. Maybe?

    Precious. I swear this is my best friends house. She has great black and white stiped awning and even looks like the cute girl in the doorway. Very chic and very Dorothy Draper those black and white stripes!

    Oh my gosh, how lovely are these? If only I lived somewhere with the sunshine to justify having them!

    They have a quaint retro charm. They remind me of my grandparents’ home in the suburbs and my aunties’ homes in Chicago. Very 1950s, but very cool, especially the black and white combo.

    I think you’re right about that Chris. My grandparents had a black and white house in Chicago and I think these would have fit perfectly.. maybe that is why I am drawn to them!

    My parents had forest green and white striped awnings like this at their old house, very chic, kind of has a glamorous beach-club feel!

    I’ve saved this picture so I go and get some quotes before next summer turns my daughters bedroom into an oven again. They are so stylish.
