I've said it before, house hunting is hard. However, this time around I confess it is also a little fun. The busybody in me relishes seeing the insides of all those different houses, and imagining how I would set things up if it were my home.
I can't take you into the houses I saw on my trip, but I'll gladly share with you some of my favorite inspiration homes and decor.
|Brookleigh Daybed from Rosenberry Rooms|
I'd set Emily up with this daybed in a heartbeat. Sadly, she's not that into it.
|Smeg Refrigerator from West Elm Marketplace|
Ben has already agreed this is the refrigerator for us!
|Tiny Victorian cottage in the Catskills|
I'm pretty sure Emily needs a little something like this in our backyard. She agrees saying it would be"perfect for a sewing studio."
|Flor tiles in "Just Plain Folk" and "Lanyard"|
I first read about Flor tiles in 2007 on Dooce.com. I liked them then, but I fell in love when I saw this great rug on Brooklyn Limestone. I'm still working to bring the rest of my family around.
|Powder room on HOUSEography|
In DC powder rooms are in practically every house. At least one of ours will have dark blue walls and a gold ceiling. I'm doing it, there's no stopping me, don't even try.
|English Farmhouse sink in a kitchen by Hallie Cohn Designs|
I fully intend to have a farmhouse, or apron-front, sink someday.
And you? What's going on in your dream-house tour?
