Island Style Essential #1

Cabana Details
This pool umbrella is so retro-chic it looks like it came straight from a Mad Men set. Not only is the pink color a beach club trademark, but its squared-off scalloped edge is a classic cabana detail. The treatment isn’t limited to outdoor furniture. Try the same edging on a drapery valance or bed skirt. Shop the look: Umbrella, Santa Barbara Designs
