Incredible Dream Home





















You guys aren't going to believe this, but this home actually belongs to one of my readers! Desireé Ashworth owns and designed this breathtaking home in Provo, UT filled with blues and greens. Desireé is passionate about these colors, and says that she and her husband are also obsessed with anything French, Swedish or Belgium. She also has her own blog, Décor de Provence, where she posts beautiful images, filled with French and Gustavian decor. I just loved this post here with pictures of her home decorated for Christmas!

The talented photographer behind these images is Ashlee Raubach. The detail and light she is able to capture is incredible! I know this home is beautiful on its own, but Ashlee turned it into a work of art! Ashlee also has a blog, and waiting there are lots more (and bigger, we all love bigger!) images and information on this stunning home. So head here and here to see more!

Hope you enjoyed the photos and hearing about these talented and super-sweet ladies! Also, thanks so much for all your kind comments yesterday (I've never seen so many in my life!)...your support and enthusiasm means the world to me! Have a great weekend everyone! :)

Oh drool! I am so in love with that kitchen and the floors! Seriously, would she adopt us, do you think?

This is stunning. Of course, the blues and the greens are to die for but the gold knobs on the stove? I'm done. This is great... Thanks for sharing and for the link to desiree's blog!

Chic Coles said...

What an incredible home...she and her husband are so lucky! I am sure it is like a beach oasis during the winter when there is so much snow outside. Thanks for sharing and hope you have a great weekend!

Pat said...

I can hardly breathe looking at the photos of this home. I am trying to do my entire home in aqua, cream and caramel but this is beyond stunning!

Kathysue said...

As soon as I opened my email and saw this, I took a deep sigh and melted in my chair. Love it all.It this were by the beach I would call it Heaven!! Thank you so much for sharing this great home. Always look forward to what you have to share. I forwarded this on to someone that love turqouise as much as you, I am sure she is swooning.Have a great weekend! Kathysue

Melissa said...

Sigh, swoon, absolutely, positively, amazing. Someone posted it was a bit too grande, but I think it's absolutely appropriate for the house. Of course, it's too grande for mere mortals like me, but what inspiration for a more durable, affordable version.

Kathi said...

Love love love! Especially that gorgeous tile in the kitchen!!!!

Sarah @ Dream In Domestic said...

My jaw just dropped to the floor. It's enough that this house is one of the most gorgeous houses I've ever seen (inside and out), but the fact that it belongs to a reader is just unbelievable! Wow!!! Thanks for sharing this! I can't wait to go check out more photos!

I, like everyone else, am blown away! What a gorgeous home--and where do I get one like that?

Linda in AZ * said...

****** "I left my hearrrrrrt, in Provo, Utah........"

Thank you for FINDNG this beautiful home to share with us!!!

We built a delightful lil' ski place in Park City (main house was in St. George) about 7 years ago now, & I STILL HOPE (& promise my heart!) that we will someday return to happily "live out our days".

Utah (or at least the parts of it I know) is the best kept secret on earth!!! There's nothing ELSE LIKE IT!!! She's one VERRRRY lucky woman to wake up n' enjoy those GLORIOUS MOUNAINS & that INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL FRESH AIR everyday!!!

I almost get giddy about the thought of an early, hour-long walk there~~~ with the dawg, the sweeet uz and I!!!

Give me even a caretaker's cottage (like in the Bavarian Alps), a rustic lil' worn out old place, a FP or two, my family & friends whom I so love and VOILS! PARADISE!!! (OnEARTH,no less!)~

THANKS so much~~~ my heart's "all a twitter" at the thought/memories of it all!

This is better than starting the day off with a bowlof Wheaties!

ENVY! What a gorgeous home!!!!
The only thing I might possibly change is perhaps the open shelving in the kitchen and that is just a MAYBE. :)
