Jane Coslick




I've never met a hanging porch bed I didn't like. One designed by Jane Coslick? All dressed up in cute turquoise fabric?? Overlooking the sea??? Heaven help me! These photos by Richard Leo Johnson for a feature in Coastal Living a couple years back are actually part of one of my most favorite homes ever, designed by Jane of course (I blogged about it here). Fall may have officially arrived, but this delightful porch is keeping the summer vibe alive for me! I hope you all have a great weekend...I know I'm going to milk it for all it's worth! :)

Margie McCulloch





Charmingly old yet refreshingly new is the perfect description of Colorado Homes and Lifestyles's Kitchen of the Year designed by Margie McCulloch of Red Pepper Kitchen and Bath Design out of Boulder. The owners wanted the space to have an Old-World feel but modern functionality, and the materials had to be interesting, textural and top of the line. I love the distressed cabinets painted Benjamin Moore's Aegean Teal, all the interesting hardware and the gorgeous three-dimensional tiles from Ann Sacks! To read all about the space and see more photos by Linda Hanselman, head over here!

Modern Beach House










Thanks for all of your awesome suggestions yesterday!! I didn't know I could get any more excited, but I did! I'm going to be in heaven on the sandy coast of Massachusetts. Sometimes I wonder how in the heck I can live in Minnesota when the sea is constantly beckoning me! (Although it helps we have our 10,000 lakes!) This home from Better Homes & Gardens reminds me how easy it is to bring the beach home, where ever you happen to live. Can you believe all of the homeowners fantastic collections? I'm loving the vintage globes, aqua pottery vases and collection of paintings in the bedroom. The vintage map of Cape Cod is perfect (and timely too!!) See more images right here!

Travel Advice?



I hope you all had a great holiday weekend! I stayed put here in Minnesota...for now! In a few weeks though Chris and I will be heading to the coast of Massachusetts for a few days. You don't even know how excited I am. I've been wanting to visit the area for as long as I can remember. We'll actually be celebrating our anniversary (of our first date...we can keep celebrating that even though we're married now, right?) as well as my birthday! We are planning to spend a day taking in Cape Cod (we're staying in Hyannis), then spending a day on Martha's Vineyard and another day on Nantucket. So we'd love to hear any and all suggestions you guys might have on where to dine, tour, shop...you always have the best ideas! Although I'm quite certain if the entire vacation is spent drooling over all the charming homes like this one on the Vineyard photographed by Alaina of Live Creating Yourself, I'll be the happiest tourist of them all! :)
