Day 253's blog crush
Our sweet friend Laura found this great blog and passed it along. I think I have a crush on this smart, cute couple and their little 1950's rancher in Richmond. I totally dig the beachy-chic style they have going on, and I can see that Sherry and I share affection for a few random things: sea fans, white Target frames, bamboo shades, Nate Berkus, wrapping presents, iron and glass coffee tables and blue-gray paint. Have a look.
Our bedrooms are the same colors, though theirs is much more modern. And those closets on either side are from Ikea. They added the wall space and crown at the top to look like built-ins -- genius!
Love that coffee table. Looks like "Cabinet of Natural Curiosities" on top.
Kitchen, before. Yikes.
Kitchen, after. Now this is what I'm talking about. This is exactly the color we want ours to be, and these cabinets are heavenly! I didn't think I wanted granite counter tops, but these are gorgeous! Not too busy or shiny. Click here or here for the low-down on this dramatic transformation.
I'm very jealous of her wrapping/writing station!
Looking forward to more inspiration from This Young House.
