A Cottage Kitchen






I posted this home when it was recently up for sale in my area. I was beyond excited when I started flipping through the March issue of Southern Living and found the same kitchen featured. The home is owned or was owned by the features editor Jessica Thuston. She really created a kitchen of my dreams. Yes, it's small, but I prefer small. Oh, and seeing another view of the dining room has me wanting a table just like that to paint. This issue is definitely worth picking up if you don't already have it. There hasn't been a day that has gone by that haven't picked up since receiving it in the mail.

A Victorian Cottage








Style at Home editor Erin McLaughlin made this gorgeous cottage into her own after a gut renovation. Although I shy away from bold colors I love how her pieces look in otherwise neutral spaces. I would welcome the sofa with open arms. The use of art adds such a personal touch that I just adore. Most people would have used the kitchen nook as a place to dine, but I love how she made it an area to relax. We currently did this in our own home and it works perfectly for us. Well, I am sure I could use the word "love" again and again for this space so I will just stop while I am ahead.

Oh My...



I know I so sweetly asked my husband if I could paint the cabinets, well, I am second guessing myself. My husband has almost given me the go ahead, but also so kindly reminded me that I said no big projects for this year (except tiling the backsplash and reupholstering our dining chairs). At first that didn't matter, but the more I ponder the more I realize how big of a project this really is. I then came across these images with cabinets the same shade as mine (although mine are not as fabulous) with the white subway tile and I love them. Maybe for the time being I should just be happy with what I got, my cabinets are only a few years old and in great condition. Oh, how my mind can change so easily. Let's just see how I feel next week.

New Mexico










I rather like this years HGTV home in New Mexico. Normally I find the homes to be too over done especially in the color category, but this one fits me to a tee. Wouldn't it be lovely to sit around that outdoor fire pit?

Flat Living












I am a huge fan of having a yard, but if we had the money to own a flat like this then I would be more than happy to call this place home. Besides I am sure the kiddos would love to play on the swings on this roof top terrace. Of course this isn't any old loft, this is a 2 story penthouse designed by the owner/designer. I really wish the listing said who the designer was. The wall of shelves and that kitchen oh my.
