Open House Sunday

Shingled Cottage in Dallas
built 1923
I love a house sided in shingles, don't you?
You usually think of them by the ocean in the northeast but they look just as good anywhere.
I love the gray color of this home too.
And the wild landscaping!
The flagstone paths leading up to a rounded stoop is welcoming. 
This cottage is all set for the 4th with the flag hung outside.
Beautiful details inside. The color palette is very soothing.
Original sconces on the walls in here. I love the way there is an arch around the front door.
I wonder if there is a full entry or just a little space there?
I've seen many homes around here with similar fireplaces and they usually don't have mantels.
I think this one has been added and I love the look of it. 
A perfect solution for a not normal fireplace.
Love those built in shelves too on either side of the arched doorway.
Big windows all the way down to the baseboards is a very nice touch.
Diamond paned windows are always so cottagy. Love those.
This dining room is decorated sparingly. I think it might need a rug but little else.
I'd love to have a kitchen this big. 
Although I know it's not big..it's much bigger than my galley kitchen.
The person who lives here must be a serious cook to need two stoves!
Looks like there is a small mudroom beyond.
Hmmm...microwave is in a different area. That is a little strange but you work with what you've got.
Love the breakfast area. Sweet table and chairs. 
Another dining area? This one is part of the large family living area.
Nice solution for a super huge tv. Adore the drapes in this room.
Perfect spot to watch tv at night.
This home is quite large.
It looks small from the front but is over 3,000 square feet which explains this large area with stairs.
Very nice bedroom...it could use a little softening.
Love this tub and the fluffy white towels. Cute curtains too.
Lots of cabinets for storage but it's a bit boring.
Yikes! Even more cabinets on the other side. Perfect his and her's.
Here we go...all set up and ready for the 4th! Very cute.
My Mom would love this room because she is crazy for this type of shutters.
She has them in several rooms of her house and would have them in every room if she could find 
enough of them.
Another bath.
I love the huge windows in this house!
Isn't this the perfect bedroom for grandkids to stay in?
Looks like lots of fun could be had up here. Feels like a bunk house...or rather a medieval bunkhouse.
Nice spot to dine outside...Just imagine this with many pots of flowers.
This home is just pretty all around. I would want a patio right off those french doors...though.
That would be a must have.
Looks like the perfect place to have a Fourth of July picnic to me!

Google Reader is leaving us....if you use it...I have added a BlogLovin gadget on my sidebar.
I've been using bloglovin for awhile and really enjoy it.
If you follow me there...I'll follow you back.
Although, I'll admit...I like to just use my Blogroll to check on what everyone is doing.

Have a great Sunday...I'll be back later with Mod Mix Monday!

That patriotic bedroom inspired me to get out my red, white and blue quilt and dress my guest room bed. This is a very nice house that still retains its cottage feel despite its surprising size!

I love the shingle style too! Reminds me of when Iived in the Hamptons. Very beachy. I agree on the patio off the french door and I think you will agree needs some COLOR inside! Lovely home. I so enjoy this series that you do Nita!

This house is so charming and much bigger than it looks! I could make this home for sure!

The house is perfect.
Personally I would want more color and different paintings but that's all cosmetic.
The only thing I would want changed is a patio off the french doors, as you said, and...a pool! :D

I enjoy reading your comments; they often point out things I miss when looking at the beautiful photos. This cottage reminds me of many homes in my neighborhood. Lovely.

Would have loved working with the patio addition.

Brick base with round columns instead of all brick column....

Without much extra expense. If any.

Love the home, a cooks kitchen without ego.

I like the bathroom with the old-fashioned tub and cafe curtains, too, but can you imagine cleaning behind it? Ugh!
