Happy Memorial Day! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday :) Sorry I'm late with this post...better late than never! This was one of my favorite homes to tour, which is funny since it was also the smallest, but it was just beautifully done. I would like to snatch every piece of furniture and plop it down into my house right now.

Let's start with the kitchen. This was one of very few white kitchens I saw on the tours I've been on, which is odd since I thought white kitchens were definitely on trend and in high demand. I guess the mass public doesn't seem to like them :) But, of course, I do and I looove this one. I love the country feel of this.

 And these tiles are beautiful. It really brings in a vintage touch to the kitchen.

 The dining room...these chairs and this table are beautiful. Once again bringing some old world charm into the home.

 And I can't get over this living room. Those mirrors kill me. I want them right now! I want all of the furniture actually.

 Here's the guest bath. I've started noticing that in every guest bath that the walls are a huge statement piece. They have all been covered in wallpaper or painted an intense color. I think I have some daring plans for our little bath :)

 One of the guest rooms. This canopy bed is beautiful. I would love to do something like this for my daughter one day.

 This third bedroom was turned into a cute reading room. I could totally imagine sipping some coffee in here while reading a book. I love the shabby chic-ness it has.

 The tile in this bathroom is beautiful. I love the marble tile in our house, but if I ever built something one day, I may consider this.

 Here's the family room. I love the map gallery wall and the super spacious seating this area has.

  1. I'll be honest, I don't love the tile in the kitchen, but the rest of the room is beautiful.

  2. I like your idea of choosing a paint that comes close to the wood. I'm glad to see your Interior designers orange county with kitchen Remodeling services. Very attractive design I like it. I will visit your blog everyday to look if there is an update, keep sharing.

  3. Such a beautiful room! Absolutely love it!

  4. I love the simplicity of the kitchen and how the kitchen island looks. Cabinets are great too but a bit of color have been nice! Overall great blog, great work!

  5. Many great ideas, including wall paper on the bathroom walls. The right wall paper can change a room completely. Also loved the Shabby Chic look in the bedroom


happy DIYing! Alicia
