I wanted to share a few more photos of our home just to prove being a designer doesn’t mean we live in a home that looks like it’s out of the pages of a swanky design magazine. Remember those houses are staged and styled by professionals. An interior photo shoot takes hours to prepare for. The rooms are cleared of clutter (you know, the stuff we can’t life without, and wouldn’t dream of parting with) and many times re-arranged just to get the right furniture into the frame. The lighting is also geared solely to photography. All of that being said, here are a few more shots. Hope you enjoy, and I would love hearing from you.
This is one of my favorite spots to relax (if you don’t mind the occasional interruption of a booming voice shouting “Fore!!!!). We spend a lot of time out here, and since the weather is pretty close to being perfect, it’s used frequently.
This little corner of the dining room is home to ojbects that have loads of memories for me. The chair belonged to my brother and used to sit in a pile of junk in the corner of his front porch in Minneapolis. I salvaged it, and Indiana artist, Judy Jarrett painted a little scene on it of my brother and I living in a little shack in Hawaii (one of his favorite places). The soup tureen belonged to my husbands Mother, the candlesticks to a great aunt and are from Russia, and the watercolor is from the 1800’s and is of Ely Cathedral, in Ely, Cambridge, England. My mother used to play on the beautiful grounds of the Cathedral, chasing the peacocks that used to roam the area freely. This little corner means so much to me.
