Open House Sunday 20

An American Colonial
filled with Swedish Antiques
You had me at poodles...
stark but warm
yummy pink walls
serene dining
great kitchen
this is the hallway...I could live in this hall.
is this the child's room? lucky child
lush grey velvet
i like those shades
fit for a queen

Violet is way better today. 
A remarkable recovery. 
I always forget that she shuts down when she doesn't feel good.
Scared me...but I believe she is going to be just fine.

Hello Nita! I hope you are doing fine.

I've always loved the element of wood in every home. Thank you for sharing this Swedish home. I'm learning :)

Cindi Myers said...

OH MY GOD!!!!!!
and that kitchen is totally my dream!
I don't think that is a child's room. I think that little chair is a "poodle" bed.
Uh hum..wink, wink - poodle.
I tell ya, you would love one.
XOXO - Cindi

I've seen a many of these images separately around blogland and it's nice to see them all put together. It's like coming home.

This is one of my favorites styles of home. The inside is beautiful too but in my house all of that light furniture would not last long.

I saw that little chair and instantly thought how great it would be as a bed for Zoey. I think she would like it much better than the crate is now confinded to.
Interesting decor.

I do love those colors (of course, my house could NEVER be that uncluttered...). Glad to hear that Violet is doing better.
