The Handmade Home Tour


























































Can't you feel the joy and love bursting from this home?? The happy Alabama abode belongs to Ashley and Jamin Mills of the uber-inspiring blog The Handmade Home, and I have to tell you, I am obsessed with it.
At The Handmade Home, we believe in beautiful, genuine, and approachable design for all. We’re creating a haven for the every day with affordable ideas, fresh solutions and one of a kind looks with an abode that is realistic and attainable. From our exciting adventures, accomplishments and most definitely our failures, we love an inspiring approach to life, design and simple family centered fun.
Don't you love that? The talent and creativity this couple has is really incredible. EVERYTHING you see on their walls, including most all of the frames, was made by them. And boy can they paint furniture like nobody's business! (I love chest in their daughter's room!) Check out their blog for more on each room (I didn't even show you them all!) and for a handy list of all the paint colors used in each room. Good thing it's Friday because I know you'll want to spend your weekend taking in all that is The Handmade Home!

I will leave you with Ashley's most recent project, a No Sew Teepee. It's pretty much the cutest thing I've ever seen! (Especially with those striped Robin's Nest walls!)


Have a fantastic weekend everyone!!

Kristin Peake Interiors










A room as sweet as they come, for the sweetest day of the year! Happy Valentine's Day everyone! This super-cute space was designed by Kristin Peake, an interior designer out of Rockville, Maryland. What girl would not be in total heaven here?! LOVE the color palette, LOVE the wall art, LOVE all the furniture, LOVE that fun feather light fixture! Oh and I LOVE the wall color too, Benjamin Moore In Your Eyes! Did you notice the collection of chic shopping bags as wall art? And the bubblegum-filled lamps?? Such great ideas! You do not want to miss the bathroom or closet, so for more photos by Stacy Zarin-Goldberg head on over here!


My day wouldn't be complete without a special shout-out to my handsome Valentine, Chris! XOXO!!

LDa Architects & Interiors + Hutker Architects






















We're looking at a match made in design heaven...and an amazing view to go along with it! This fantastic home was designed by the architectural firm Hutker Architects with the interior design by by John Day, a principal at LDa Architects & Interiors. What I love most is how the indoor blends in effortlessly with the outdoors. Nothing takes away from the view; the decor only complements it. And I am loving the light-filled kitchen, with its shimmery backsplach and blue island (painted Yarmouth Blue by Benjamin Moore)! The outdoors are just incredible as well...right on the water, the big yard, all those flowers?! I miss summer! See more photographs of the home by Eric Roth right over here!

Gary McBournie














Have you guys checked out the March issue of House Beautiful? It's all about perfect color combos, including a new spin on red, white and blue with this 1828 Nantucket beach cottage designed by Gary McBournie. The Boston interior designer (who also has offices in Nantucket and Palm Beach) actually owns the little cottage, and I think it epitomizes his style: Classic American with a subtle twist on tradition. I just adore the design of living room, which was inspired by the great ticking stripe fabric. He even cut out the blue and red stripe from the fabric and used it as a border on the curtains! LOOVE the paint color too, of course it just happens to by Benjamin Moore's Palladian Blue–one of my favorites! The kitchen is too perfect with Benjamin Moore's Covington Blue abound! See more pics by Julian Wass and learn all about the home over here!
