Weekend Reading

Weekend Reading

Friday, March 13th, 2015

I’ve been asked by readers “What does Wine Country style look like?” Sometimes they’re referring to fashion, inquiring what to wear when they visit the region and touring the tasting rooms (that’s another subject) but often they’re asking about interior design, so when this gorgeous home popped up in my reader this week I thought it a great example. 

Mixed wood finishes, neutrals that blend in with the landscape, earthy organic textures such as stone and concrete, traditional French or Italian architecture combined with a contemporary California vibe. This grand vacation home possesses all of those elements!

Beautiful celebrity kitchens.

 Campaign style hardware (at Home Depot)

I bought two pairs from Lilly’s spring shorts collection, that scalloped edge!

The new punctuation.

Busy is a sickness.

 

Have a lovely weekend friends!

Hello friends, what’s on your agenda for the weekend? I’m planning on a House of Cards marathon, I’ve been waiting so many months for the release of Season 3 – get a peek of the interiors from the series here. On Sunday we’re checking on the progress of Grandma’s kitchen cabinet install, it’s all finally coming together so I can’t wait to share it with you. Speaking of kitchens, this one leaves me breathless, the tile backsplash just kills me. Isn’t it absolutely divine?
