i love my home.

There are some people who just don't understand decorating. It kills me to walk into someone's house and see bare walls and plain furniture. Your home should at least convey some sort of feeling, or be a hint of your personality.

I feel like I'm the polar opposite of these people. I love finding something for my home and knowing exactly where its place will be. I love painting walls, and I am not afraid of colour!  My home is a special place to me because of every ounce of time and detail I've put into it to make it that way.  Welcome to my little photo tour... take your shoes off, stay a while!



I just had to include that last pic because it's probably one of my favourite features in my house... part of my huge premium denim collection inside my closet. Am I crazy? Probably...

D and I started working on a new table creation this weekend. I will post about it when it's complete. Right now we're taking a break because D thinks I am insane for wanting this thing in my house. Boys *sigh* they just don't understand decor.

p.s. how cute is Bear holding onto his toy while he's sleeping? I almost squealed when I found him like that.

What is your favourite feature of your home?

  1. My favorite part of my house is everything about my bedroom! After years of living in college apartments, having a house I could actually paint was a dream come true!! I love laying in my calming blue grey room and reading surrounded by art and dolled up garage sale finds. I cant imagine being back in a house with white walls again.

  4. I so wish I could do all that. We purchased this townhouse going on two years. And we are miserable here. We are victims of Association corruption when it comes to Condo Assocations in NJ...which is a big problem here sucks out all the cash in our pockets. So we are afraid to invest into it now. We stopped painting walls after we did our daughter's room. Hopefully we will move to a HOME home....one that feels permanent and we can put our trademark into it :)

    Love the puppy picture too lol I would just about die if Charlie did that.

  6. You should love your home! It's amazing! I love the coloring. And I agree, I dont like walking into a house or a room with plain white walls and nothing on them. It's like..really? This is your place to change and transform to your liking, where no one can say otherwise. Unless you can't paint that is. But there are tons of alternatives! Like hanging wall curtains to add color and texture. Anywhoooo...Im rambling. But I love chandeliers, they add such a sophisticated look. Plus I love the way you take pictures=] Every single one is beautiful and intriguing. Thanks for sharing!

  7. I so agree with you, I have to have some color on my walls or I feel like I'm in a dorm room. My husband is as we speak finishing up my new kitchen and bedroom, and I can't wait to go home and see how my color choices turned out. I love the colors in your home, a girl after my own heart!

  17. I am totally one of those people that doesn't have a clue about decorating! I always call my mom over to help - her place looks like something out of southern living. My place...not so much.

    Your place is GORGEOUS!

  25. i completely agree with you! i do not get how some people just "'move in" to a space and never give it a personal touch! i'm all about decorating while there are still boxes packed! :) and seeing the room with every little detail in place before anything is even arranged or on the wall..... love interior design. and love your home!
