Polhemus Savery DaSilva + Giveaway Winner!





























This home rendered me downright speechless! Designed by the Polhemus Savery DaSilva (dream-makers if you ask me!) and photographed by Brian Vanden Brink, the home is coastal perfection inside and out. From the incredible gardens, fabulous pool, and picture-perfect shutters outside, to the light-filled rooms, nautical touches (love those cute pendants over the island!) and super-cute furniture inside. The backsplash is totally drool-worthy too. And those shutters. Did I mention those shutters??

A funny fact about this house...I actually saw it in person a couple years ago–on my birthday of all days! Chris and I were on vacation just driving around Cape Cod before dinner and happened upon it. Yeah, I could have stared all day. So imagine my thrill when I found these incredible photos!

Just for fun, here's the fog-filled pic I took that day!


For tons more coastal dream homes, visit Polhemus Savery DaSilva! (Visit this old post of mine with another fabulous home they designed too!) And if you're as big of a fan of shingled houses as I am, check out their book Shingled Houses in the Summer Sun



Before I sign off for the weekend, I have to announce the lucky winner of the French Coquille Front Aubusson Pillow from Coach Barn!

Congrats to.....

Suzanne at Lake and Garden












What a cool kitchen! When Suzanne of Lake and Garden: Texas Living and her husband started designing their new lake home in Corsicana, Texas, they wanted it to reflect the regional architecture and to have a feeling of age or permanence. Doesn't it look amazing?! The lovely blue color (Seascape from the Valspar collection at Lowe's) was inspired by beautiful dry climate plants they saw at the New York Botanical Gardens (check out her pics!). The perfect color for a hot climate! I love the rustic look of the limestone walls and exposed beams, and how cool is that huge hood! You can read all about the space and see more of the home at Suzanne's blog!


Reminder: Today is the last day to enter the Coach Barn giveaway! The winner will be announced tomorrow morning!

Kirsten Krason
















Model homes aren't usually known for having tons of style, but Utah interior designer Kirsten Krason showed how it's entirely possible when she designed this fantastic space! She wanted the home to have a breezy and fresh vibe, so before anything else she chose Benjamin Moore's Palladian Blue for the walls. Love it! Not only is the space super cute, it's also totally budget-friendly! Check out her blog posts about the living room and the dining room/kitchen for all of the sources. And see the rest of the model home with lots more photos by Jylare Smith over Kirsten's blog 6th Street Design School! (The kid's room is adorable!)

HGTV Dream Home 2013


























They don't call it their Dream Home for nothing! You're looking at the twin suite bedroom in the 2013 HGTV Dream Home on Kiawah Island, South Carolina designed by Linda Woodrum. I believe it's geared towards children, but I think it's a perfectly fun getaway for adults! The space is so fresh and tropical, with so much fabulous turquoise I can hardly stand it! The paint color du jour in both the bedroom and bathroom is Sherwin-Williams "Watery" - SW 6478. I absolutely LOVE those twin beds from Ethan Allen...just too cute! And that bathroom is straight out of my dreams! For more pics and to read all about the great space, just head here!

Sarah 101














Sarah Richardson and Tommy Smythe hit it out of the park once again on Sarah 101! The elegant design was inspired by the vintage French-inspired metal console you see above. I've never seen anything like it! How gorgeous is that custom-made sofa too?? Love the huge antique gilded mirror behind it, it really opens up the space! Oh how I adore the serene color on the walls ("Eyelet" from Sarah's collection with PARA Paints). View more photos and a shopping guide, as well as a great recap of the episode here! (Or if you're lucky enough to live in Canada, you should be able to watch it here!)
