You know those days where you had things all planned out and in your mind the day was going to go so well, but then this and that happened and the day just turned out entirely differently than you expected? Yeah. Like those days when your husband loses his iPhone and you spend the whole day looking all over town for it and calling to report it lost it because it is probably gone forever. Those days.
So, what can you do with those sorts of days except to ESCAPE to the internet looking for something beautiful to bring a little lift to the otherwise crazy day! Instead of what I originally had planned for today, prior to the iPhone incident, I thought we would spend some time drooling over this 2010 Green Home from HGTV. I’d seen the pictures online earlier, but hadn’t taken the time to properly enjoy them, so let’s do that, shall we?
I always stretch my design appreciation when I study pictures. I sometimes see things I wouldn’t have thought to do and it makes me think outside of my normal decorating box. Or, I see things I would have done myself, but thought they were “outdated” or I hesitated for some reason, and then suddenly I feel empowered by my own instincts!
This is a lovely house. I am not sure that it is my absolute favorite dream house ever, but you just can’t argue with the timeless beauty of a white farmhouse. They are all good. I would not complain about winning this house one teeny bit. And this one has some lovely features. I of course adore all the wood and architectural chunkiness (my favorite kind of architecture, the chunky kind).
This bathroom is fun, I love the light from the windows and I really like the touches of black.
I can’t help but swoon when I see bookcases in a white farmhouse kitchen. A great combo. Dreamy. The vertical wood on the walls (and the ceiling!) give just enough interest without needing many accessories. More and more I am feeling the love for “less is more.” I need less clutter and less STUFF.
What a happy space! A blue wood ceiling? Oh how I love. Lately I’ve been really thinking about having my own office again. I’d have to do some room juggling but it might just happen! There is something so inspiring about a fresh and pretty dedicated work space all your own.
And I’m loving the painted treatment on the walls and the crazy fun upholstery on the chair. Let’s look at another angle so we can see more of the walls!
The red white and blue is really striking and fresh!
Well, hello lovely sliding barn doors that open up to an amazing BBQ.
I hope you enjoyed the tour as much as I did, and if you want to win the house (and why not give it a try, you never know…someone will win!) you can enter the contest here!
You can find many more photos of this lovely home right here!
I’ll be back later with the Friday Inspired By linky! How is it possible that it is already Thursday?
