Can't say I wasn't inspired the three weeks I was a vendor at the Show House. The designers were awesome and I could relate to much of the rooms, thinking...
that might work... at my house!
Loved the library. The light was incredible and the designer took advantage of that. The wood paneling glowed and the creamy, beige palate with blues subtly woven in made this room one of my favs.
This chair needs to be in MY future library.
This wall in the breakfast room was another favorite. A modern take on silhouettes pops on the textured, denim blue wall.
Although the stove and tiling is nothing special, it is EXACTLY what I want in my future ( very near future) kitchen.
And this wall in the dining room works for me. The mirrored breakfront is classic.
The house this year was not what you would call a "wow" house. In fact many design house devotees/groupies were disappointed. However most "normal" people were charmed and inspired as the house reflected changes in economy. Things are more conservative these days.
Even at designer show houses!
Yes, this is actually a modern house in the German countryside- with a thatched roof!
We were in farm country and shortly after this photo was taken a horse drawn carriage drove by...
I wish I could have gone inside to check out the kitchen :)
We are on the verge of a major kitchen construction, home re-configuration, and style make-over.
This blog is my living, breathing design file.
Because I am the happiest on vacation with my family, either out in Utah or "down the shore," Our new project will be influenced by the elements found at homes by the water or near the slope.
