The Pleated Poppy




























I read San Luis Obispo, California was named the happiest city in America...the perfect place for this cheery home photographed by Joe Johnston! It's pretty obvious some very creative souls live here. Homeowner Lindsey Cheney is the blogger and handcrafted accessories designer behind The Pleated Poppy, something to definitely check out. I'm loving the colorful and open family room and kitchen–especially the collection of globes! The family actually spends 90% of their time in the playroom though. It's Lindsey's sewing, crafting and blogging room, and her husband also runs his business partly from it. Their 3 kids not only play in the room, they are homeschooled there too! No wonder it's so organized!! Read an article about the home here, and see lots more pics of their home and get answers to source questions on Lindsey's blog!

I LOVE SLO. I lived there for a few years after college, and it really is the happiest place. The house is so airy and bright. I love how it welcomes in the sun. Can't beat the SLO life.

I'm pining for grey and this is just perfect!
Love the hit of yellow and soft blue on the painted old pieces of furniture.
So sunny, fun and inviting.
