A Sweet Welcome











There is nothing unwelcoming or too precious about this lovely home.

It welcomes you, completely blanketed with white, offering a sense of purity of living, and the chance to appreciate texture, lines, detail and depth, beyond color. There are so many details to love about this interior, aren't there? One of my personal favorites is the scallops—offering a true feminine flair... and I really enjoy how fabric has been used throughout to add and play on warmth and ease, whether it be slipcovered chairs, a kitchen with a curtained sink area, curtained entryways into rooms, creating a canopy, or lining the interior of storage areas. A fine idea. Ruffles, scallops, chandeliers, gingerly placed trinkets, artwork, boxes, bottles and such, at every turn... What a home for the romantic of heart.

  7. Oh, I couldn't believe this is all one home! The almost brass tones, the feminine, wavy and draped lines throughout. I could settle down there, happily ever after :)
