the good life

: : it's been a week since we returned from Sweden already. I look at the photos every day wishing I was still sitting on the dock by the sauna with my feet in the water. the two weeks we did spend at home were wonderful! .Iz. spoke Swedish the whole time! He deserves an award. There were family olympic tournaments, croquet championships, water ballet, sailing, kayaking, tennis, golf. And a lot of time spent eating and drinking, enjoying the company of relatives and friends. I will share more photos soon. This past week of work has been very hectic though and I've barely unpacked my suitcase.

I'm hoping for a few more weeks of sunny warm weather here in Boston, summer ain't over yet!

Kitchens !

Here are some kitchens I thought were very attractive. The one in the middle is very stylish and uses the space really well. Love the color too. I've been taking notes because soon I would like to do a mini overall of my own kitchen. Problem is, the more pictures I see the more I change my mind about what I want! Oh well, happy monday everyone!

Color !

Bolder colors are showing up more and more in design magazines lately. Crisp bright beautiful colors are pushing up the WOW factor. I myself love them. Nothing says look at me more then these rooms! Have you used a bold color in your home??

Pretty Bathrooms

Its amazing how far bathrooms have come. I've seen some really beautiful designs. I love both these sinks and they couldn't be more different. The tiles in the middle were shown to me by my bud Jen. Love them, so creative!!!

Stay Outside Longer

For the psst 2 days when I go out onto my screened porch with my morning coffee, I've felt the first nip of fall in the air. Rather strange because this time of year where I live, its still usually very hot. I'm sure we will still have some very hot days, but it looks like summer 08 is winding down fast. So get outside people! I can't say it enough!

Is Orange the IT Color for Fall?

I've been seeing orange everywhere these days. Seems like it has been picked as the "it" color for fall. I like it very much. Orange is fall, leaves pumpkins etc.
I think the above pictures add just the right amount of orange without going overboard. Do any colors remind you of a particular season? (All pictures from the Pottery Barn website).

Sometimes Small Spaces Are Just Cute!

I don't know why, but sometimes I just love looking at small spaces. Something comforting from childhood? I dunno. Maybe its all the years playing with my doll houses. I never have lived in a very large home, so maybe that has something to do with it. I guess its like puppies and kids. They are adorable when they are small.
