Another Lovely Home Tour






This home renovation just makes me smile. I love the fresh clean colors, simple but ever so lovely furnishings, and I especially love the outdoor area. I could image myself living out there. My husband and I have certain things we want for our next home and I always say that the garden is what will sell me. I can make any home lovely, but a beautiful yard and garden are much harder to start from scratch. What is your must have for a home?

I would also love to say thank you to Everything Fabulous and Sweet as Candy for One Lovely Blog Award and Blue Hydrangea for the Splash Award. I am honored.

Great home tour! There is nothing cold or stark about this modern beauty. I particularly love the mix of vintage furnihings with many fun and accessible IKEA pieces. But the kicker for me are those curtains in the little girl's room...color me happy!

Love the outdoor area and I am jealous of that little girls room...how fun is it?

Jennie Bee said...

what a great kids room! I love the colors! The out door deck is gorgous also!

Jennifer said...

yes, the garden is much harder to get going -- and possibly more expensive! next go-round I'll look for a more-established yard :)

I really want my next home to have a fireplace. And bigger closets. And another bathroom. That's all! I am serious about the fireplace though. I love those curtains in the kids room.

Oh my goodness--I love this home! So crisp and clean without being cold. And that outdoor area with the paper lanterns is just fantastic.

i've decided i want a river :) is that too much to ask? I just KNOW I would love to sit by a beautiful river (or stream I can compromise) and listen to it as I read or nap or think....just everything! so I want a yard with a stream/river :)

I love this house. I'm living in my first house (as opposed to an apt.) as an adult and I have to say that having a garden is pretty great. Especially this time of year when I can have my morning coffee and dinner parties outside. It is a lot of work though. I have lots of weeding in my near future!

I am so jealous of that kitchen! My #1 need for a house is lots of windows - something I am currently lacking...

Kristin said...

I'm lusting after a wrap around porch!

Ohh my I love. I can't wait until I can decorate my own house one day (Yay!). A reasonably big backyard would be a must. Mainly so I can get a swimming pool put in =)
