Weekend Reading

Hello hello, we’re still on the road enjoying our family vacay this week but I wanted to share a few fun links for your weekend enjoyment. I’m going to need smelling salts, I’m feeling faint because how absolutely perfect is this breezy guest house by Tillman Long Interiors?

How perfect is this dining nook?  So sunny, so cheerful, and family friendly, I adore the painted chairs and happy mix of patterns on the window seat. I spied it over at The Design Files this week and fell in love with the whole house tour.
