Country Carriage House

10.31.2012


Sarah and Todd decide to move to the country and purchase a restored 1840's home with a carriage house. The photo above is of Sarah's art studio in the carriage house. I just love the Murano glass chandelier combined with the more rudimentary decor elements.  

Salvaged wood adorns some of the carriage house walls. 

The combination of the 4 poster bed with the antiques and cowhide rug really makes the guest room pop. I especially love the round mirror that looks like a window - very cool! For the complete story with photos please click here.

Chai Tea

Given that so many people have been affected by Sandy I thought that I'd post this recipe for Chai tea. Chai tea is perfect for warding off colds and warming the soul. If you have any way of boiling water this is the perfect tea for these trying times. Click here for recipe.

Honey Lavender Ice Cream

I like food that is different and I think that this honey lavender ice cream would certainly qualify. Nothing like a little taste of Provence to end a perfect day. For the recipe please click here

Shabby Chic Seduction

I love the mixture of old and new in this kitchen. The gray/white bricks, gilt mirror and antique wooden box filled with greenery sitting alongside a chalkboard, modern bubble chandelier, steel counters and stools is just so cool!

I love the variations of gray in this room and the wood framing and table add just the right amount of warmth.

Indoor Outdoor Living Room

I am in awe of this room with it's earthy tones and spiced orange accents. Makes me want to jump right into my screen. I have been finding a lot of places that contain home libraries lately and they seem to all have a view to the outdoors. Boy I wished I lived somewhere hot! Happy weekend! xxx Tracey

Library Love

10.18.2012

I love rooms that open to the outside and this one contains one of my favorite items - books. I don't know if I'd cover the window with them but I certainly love the idea of reading in that space!

Whole Home Redo

10.15.2012

When I saw this house I knew I had to post it. Built in 1968 the original home was pretty typical of it's time. Small windows, wall to wall carpeting and a Traditional decor. After the renovation there are wall to wall windows, no carpeting and a modern decor that makes this place rock!!  I just love how each room now has a beautiful view (even the bathroom!). For the complete before and after please click here.

Déjà Vu

I find it interesting how two very different kitchen designs can be so similar. Look at the island and window placement to see what I'm talking about. Not to mention the yellow, white and blue stools.

DIY: White Silver Birch Vases

10.12.2012

You will need:
Clear vases or jars of varying heights
Twine or wool
Masking tape
White spray paint
Tea lights

Instructions:
1. Clean and dry your vases or jars
2. Wrap yarn around vase or jar in a crisscross pattern and tape the ends on the underside or the inside so that they stay in place. DO NOT place tape on the outside of vase or jar. 
3. Cover an area with some newspaper and give the jar 3 light coats of spray paint - wait 5-10 minutes between each coat - and let dry. 
4. Remove tape holding yarn and gently remove the yarn. 
5. Add tea light

Now you have a silver birch tree vase!
