Historical Concepts + Steven Gambrel - Part One








You may recognize this gem, it was Cottage Living magazine’s first Idea House. (Anyone else miss that magazine?!) The Bridgehampton cottage was designed by Historical Concepts out of Peachtree City, Georgia, with the interior design by Steven Gambrel. More than anything, I love the sunny breakfast nook with the comfy banquette. The combo of the red chairs and blue walls is fantastic, and I love the collection of bottles! The earthy colors paired with the light blue in the living room is great too, so soothing and cozy-feeling. And what Hamptons retreat would be complete without a fabulous pool! On Monday we'll be touring the upstairs with more photos from Marco Ricca and Cottage Living, including a spectacular loft area I know you'll LOVE!

Many thanks to Historical Concepts for providing me with source info, including the paint colors listed down below! If you're wondering about anything else, leave a comment and I'll look it up.


Now it's time to announce the winner of the $100 Coach Barn gift certificate!

Flea Market Trixie







Here in Minnesota, we love our screened porches (insert joke about the mosquito being our state bird) and you'd be hard-pressed to find a cuter one than Flea Market Trixie's! So inviting and fun, it's the perfect place to relax the afternoon away! What I admire most about her space is the fact that she decorated it entirely with garage sale and flea market finds–all for under $100! Don't you love the stripes on the floor? She actually painted a floor cloth using the backside of vinyl flooring! (Read all about it here.) I love all the colorful throw pillows that she designed too (available in her shop, and on sale I see!) For more pics and source info on this delightful space, just head over here!

And don't forget–today is the last day to enter the Coach Barn giveaway!

Coastal-Inspired Kitchen







Yes folks, it was love at first site with this one!! I cannot tell you how much I adore the sea-inspired color scheme with happy bursts of yellow, finished off a with a perfect dose of rustic charm and fabulous appliances! I just love the blue island with the marble top and the great farmhouse sink. The blue display shelves are fantastic too, they really make the vases stand out and provide great contrast to the crisp white cabinets! Dreamy, dreamy, all the way! You can see even more photos of the kitchen over at Better Homes and Gardens!

Lilly Bunn Weekes











When I saw the cover of the new issue of Lonny, I knew I was in for a treat! One of my favorite features was of this Upper East Side apartment designed by Lilly Bunn Weekes, photographed here by Patrick Cline. The homeowners wanted a crisp and fresh look, but with a comfortable, usable vibe where they could relax...and also where their kids could play. I just love the bathroom with Hinson & Company's Spatter wallpaper! Looks fabulous with the red lampshades! And how about the peacock blue lacquered walls and gold ceiling in the foyer! So dramatic! You can tour more of the apartment, including the gorgeous kitchen, right here! And for more inspiration from Lilly, visit her blog!
