Warm & Lovely Coastal Dream House

Beautiful Kitchen - JS Interiors Kitchen Trent Bell photography

I was sitting by the fire last evening, pretending I had nothing to do (you know when you are REALLY busy but can’t take a day off so you just pretend you have nothing to do? Or is that just me…). I REALLY needed to get some work done.  So naturally, I found myself on Pinterest. And while sometimes I can justify that as part of my job, last night it was just a way to be a work-avoider. Or so I thought.

Then, I spotted this lovely waterfront home (via House of Turquoise), designed by the talented Justene Spaulding of JS Interiors (photographed by Trent Bell). There are a lot of houses on Pinterest. A LOT. But every once in awhile I come across one that has something special about it. Something worth taking another look at. This was one of those houses.

JS Interiors Living Room

It’s tastefully done, a beautiful combination of rustic, traditional, coastal and cottage. And I love the color palette in the kitchen and living area (on the ceiling, too!). The water color shades of teals and greens mixed with the dark and lighter woods, white woodwork and beautiful gold fixtures is fresh and pretty but still warm and cozy. My favorite combinations. Love.

I adore that rug and the barley twist legs on that cute bench!

That cabinetry. The lights. The walls. The wood work. The tub.

Of course, I’m all about the planked walls. Mark my words, my house will be all planked some day. Or at least mostly.

And so much texture on those floors! Beautiful.

So, I guess that is the hazard of having a job doing exactly what I love. You just can’t stop yourself. Even when you are trying with all your might to be a work-avoider, what do you do? You scroll Pinterest and end up dreaming about houses again. If you want to follow along with my housey pinning sprees, you can find my Pinterest boards here.

Happy Monday, my house-loving friends. Do you find yourself daydreaming on Pinterest when you should be working, too?
