WINTER










Certain homes evoke a feeling in me. This home for instance screams winter. Grab a cup of cocoa, a good book, and a blanket to wrap around your shoulders and I would be ready to settle in for the cold months. Do certain homes do this to you too or am I just weird?

If you are weird, then so am I! I feel the same way about certain homes.

The furniture is fabulous it looks antique, I like the entire design of the house it looks very beautiful.

I just love the classic yet classy design of the interiors. It’s very elegant and warm and cozy, perfect for winter to keep us sheltered from the cold.

I agree, and this house looks so cozy. It's gorgeous too!

I love the kitchen and that bathtub is lovely

Scattering Lupines said...

Oooh. I love those rich woodtones against the green walls in that living room. I am not a big fan of green... but that just about changes my mind completely!

Melissa said...

This is one i go back and look at again and again. It's so rich and cocoon-y.

Love the pug in the shots! And the coloring! And I need a bubble bath in that tub ASAP.

i REALLY love the kitchen!

and you're right this home does scream winter - but not in a bad way. there's warmth in the home, which is good.

i'll run into that house for shelter from a storm! :)

Cassie said...

I know exactly what you mean - cannot see this house in a full blown summer but perfect in winter. Is it the colours maybe? That gorgeous bath reminds me of the one in 'It's Complicated' and I love the kitchen and carpets. Maybe it's the colours that appear wintery?

Tara said...

You're not weird at all! Although, I could make myself at home in that kitchen every season of the year. :)

I've actually never thought about it like that Paula, evoking a season that is. That kitchen however is my IDEAL kitchen. Dream kitchen, love it.

Joyce said...

A nice home- I get the feel of masculine, warm and inviting. I think I see a cup of cocoa with your name on it by one of the fireplaces. Enjoy! xo

Melissa said...

Certain homes for sure relfect more one season or one purpose (vacation/home). I love this home and it looks super cozy.

Elie's Papel said...

you're right... it's very warm and cozy... perfect for cold weather days...

Sarah's Fab Day said...

Oh my, obsessed with this home. It's gorgeous. I could just move right in and change nothing.

Michelle said...

When I was a kid, I would walk through floor plans, picturing what I would be doing in each room, what time it was, where I would drop things, so it doesn't seem wierd at all!! If I rendered that photo, I would add bubbles!!

Best,
Michelle

This house is about 4 miles from my house and pass it all the time driving the the in-laws; I always wondered what the interior looked like, it is awesome. The exterior color has two camps love it or hate it around here.
