Finally. A model home that is just right. Doesn’t take itself too seriously and it looks like someone lives there. Oh, there are tons of pictures. It was a 2 story house and I loved almost everything in it. So-if you don’t like to look – well, if you don’t like to look, what are you doing here?
This lamp makes me swoon.
The upstairs was whimsical and had a super cute dog theme and if you don’t love dogs, I don’t even want to know you. They did a really good job of choices and placement.
I love the fishnets they used for curtains. Good imagination. And that purple/lavender wallpaper kinda makes me want to go to the dark side.
This lamp. Goodness. The glass is fabulous and I love that the inside of the shade matches. You sexy little bitch.
The white on white canvas is textured. It tickles.
Oversized pictures can be tricky but this one works perfectly at the end of this hall. Tip of the hat to you, designer.
This lamp. Yes, please.
Nice legs there, little lady.
These croquis are super fun. I think I would have painted them, though. A face, maybe some clothes. Or they could have been on a tandem bike. That would’ve been cool.
Oh dear. The owl. Will we ever escape?
The boys’ room was pretty cool. They took that football theme all the way, didn’t they? And yet, the football is upside down. I’m pretty sure that wasn’t on purpose, but it cracks me up.
Behind this little glass Jane Russell, what do you see? Could it be granite that clashes with the back splash? Because that’s all I see. Every single day. If you’re blind and someone picks out your house for you, remember to ask if the curtains match the carpet. Jeez, people.
This bedroom is unisex, as far as I’m concerned. Again it has wallpaper I actually like. Super cute fake books.
Love the Bowler hats.
I love these glass knots, but I sure am starting to get sick of seeing them. Scale back, designers.
These chairs give me the vapors. Sexy and smooth.
These organic “things” (whatever they are) are visually interesting and I don’t think I’d get tired of them in 10 minutes. Tip of the hat.
All of the pieces of paper stuck in the base of this lamp were little love letters. Swoon.
A builder detail, but this is finally a backsplash I could live with. Maybe.
So it’s pretty obvious that this house pleased me. A solid A, for sure. A good portion of that, I admit, was because of the dogs. I’ve been waiting for a designer to incorporate some realness up in here. A lot of creativity and it worked. The whole thing pulled together nicely.
