A Little Extra...

I love {and want} a good {big} upholstered ottoman. It adds a little something extra to the room, whether it is seating, color, comfort, or storage. I like them!

I could enjoy any of these spaces with the near perfect weather we have been having. Now only if the pollen would stop.

Scandinavian Beach House...

This beach house featured in House Beautiful located on Shelter Island, NY looks so well 'lived-in', the photos are so relaxing. I definitely want some whitewashed floors and walls in my home.



Have a pretty weekend!

The revival of this 1875 farmhouse kitchen can brighten any day with its bead-board cabinetry, heart-pine countertops, buttery yellow farm-style sink, awning windows and the yellow and white painted floors.
