Several months ago, at what should have been bedtime, I found a blog, and I was so floored by the house, and the sort of “hey” (insert finger snapping) personality of its owner, I stayed up for hours reading and nodding YES.
This is my house.
This is what I want to see when I look around my house.
This is the kind of house my girls like.
This is the kind of house my mother liked.
This is Dana’s house-
as illustrated in her wonderful blog
I thought , as I read, ‘she’s got the touch’,
a term my girls and I use to describe what someone has done to their home, when we really, really like it.
And finally, Dana is a pleasure.
Go see her blog right away.
What do I see that I speaks to me?
blue and white
the entry hall wall color
the balance and symmetry in the lamps and the corresponding prints
the fact that this house makes me want to read a book or take a nap
the traditional lines, with a kick
the leopard print pillow
the high and the low
the low slung ranch structure of it all (I live in its twin)
the interesting lamp shades
