A dream home..

I first saw this home over at Greige and immediately
told Christina I thought she had found my dream home..
After that I saw selected images pop up here and there,
and then today I looked at the original source - Veranda.
Since I was / am so taken by this place I am posting it
here on the home blog as well. I absolutely love this place!!

The overall palette may be a little too monochromatic & blonde for me,  but
I just love the mix of raw wood against all the cream, white and grey.
The steel framed windows had me drooling, and just look a the detail in the doorway.

I cropped out the desk and chairs by the window - they were a tad too sleek
for my liking, but the rest of the room is divine. That chest.. *sigh*..

 This is part of the bedroom - you can see a hint of the bed
and that chest in the lower left corner.. I love the space in
this room, and that divine collection in the built-in shelf.

Not mad about the chairs, but generally love this room!
..and just look at the floor people! Just perfect.

Wow! Ceiling, entrance, bench.. Wow!

This is very me.. Twigs are always present where I am..

Veranda calls this style 'California Modern'.
I call it yummy!

Christina, I am so grateful you showed me this! I think this is IT - I want to move in now.
Might have to add some books, art and flowers - a tad too bare for me as it is now.

Donna - yes, it is knee weakening!

Terri - aaah, yes don't get me started on that fabulous chest!

Happy start to the week chicas!
