I can't resist sharing a few thoughts and photos from the weekend's home tour! I know I am right in the middle of Exploring Cottage Design but I can't help myself. I have been admiring one of the homes on the tour for almost a year as I pass by on my morning walk. Who would have ever thought I would actually get to go inside and meet the designer? Saturday was such a crisp and beautiful day. I just love Spring in the South!
I am seriously in love with limestone floors!
It was not until I reached the kitchen that I discovered the true genius of this light filled home. The kitchen features a glass window wall with glass front cabinets that give expansive views into the beautifully manicured backyard. There was really no way to take a picture of this design element. The sunlight was so bright coming in through the windows that is over exposed my shot.
Floating glass cabinets and big backyard views are covetable.
A pretty blue bedroom is always appropriate and forever stylish.
Creating little nooks makes a house cozy and functional.
Stark makes a wool carpet that looks like their signature sisal!
Even the most formal house deserves a porch swing.
Pea gravel makes a very elegant ground cover.
By arranging herbs with different textures and colors in a graphic x pattern, you can create an amazing kitchen herb garden with even the smallest patch of earth.
Benjamin Moore Ashen Tan 996 is a very pretty gray paint color.
