We’re still working on personalizing the half bath at our place this week… …so I thought I’d blog about my friend Shannan‘s house today. She and her family have had tons of fun adding color, personal touches, and character galore to their recently-built home. She created this little vignette in her entry, and I’m fascinated by […]

Merry Christmas Eve! Kevin and I photographed a charming, southern-style guest cottage recently, and I am so excited to share the photos with you today! It’s called the Chapel Hill Loft, and it belongs to our new friends, Dale and Rita.

Kev and I had the pleasure of visiting a really fantastic house in the Old Cloverdale neighborhood of Montgomery (Alabama) recently, and I thought I’d share the photos we took of it here on our blog today.

House Tour – Union Springs, AL

Earlier this month, we took a trip to Union Springs, Alabama. It’s a small, laid-back town located about an hour and a half southeast of where we live. Century-old Victorian homes line many of the streets around town, and the ones that are for sale are priced incredibly low because of the towns proximity to […]

Raised In Cotton

The other night after reading our blog post about our transom opening, I received an email from Carol of “Raised In Cotton”. She sent us photos of the transoms in her 140 year old farmhouse. We were so excited to see they looked just like the one we had just cut out! Her transoms made […]

HGTV Green Home Photos

I’m still reeling from our serendipitous trip to the 2008 Green Home on Friday. I almost feels like a dream. (Mom- did I really get to see it in person?) It’s currently up for sale, and the asking price is $589,000. My obsession with this house runs deep. I’ve had this photo set as my […]

Daisy Cottage

It’s sunny… It’s cheerful… It’s refreshing… It’s tranquil… It’s precious! (Photos: Kim at Daisy Cottage) Dear Kim, […]

Dreamers to the cores of our beings, Kevin and I love to visit places like these to draw inspiration from their charming architectural details and symphonies of colorful landscaping. Imprinting images like these into your subconscious mind […]
