Yes, Please!

Good morning!
I'm up early because I have a lot I need to accomplish today. But who cares about any of that because I found our future home! Don't worry I'm going to post a lot of pictures and then you will see why I'm in love. Now if only it was anywhere remotely close to our price range.....

The home is called The Original Northumberland Estate (I can just read that name and know it won't fit in our budget) and all photos and info can be found here. There are a ton of pictures but I swear each one is better than the last.

Formal Living Room


Formal Dining Room
Kitchen (did you notice the double refrigerator....just checkin')
Guest Suite
Guest Bedroom
Master Bedroom
Master Bathroom (shower not pictured)
Office (I have saved these pictures because I love this masculine look)

Now we are on to the pool house----This is the the pool house (enough said)
Bedroom 1
Bedroom 2
Living Room
Pool Area
See, don't you want to live there too? I think there are 3 living areas, 4 if you include the pool house. Wow. Anyway, I didn't include all the pictures so please click on the link above for more pics and information.

Amazing, right?!

Black and White

Hi all!
I hope everyone is having a great morning! If you're watching the news you might know that S Fla is in the midst of a tropical depression so it is a rainy, rainy day. I'm glad that I have a lot of things I need to get done without leaving the house today so I'm not complaining. I hate having to venture out in the rain so I'll be home cleaning and organizing today.

One color combo I have been coming across a lot and loving is the very classic black and white. While I doubt I will ever do a whole room in strictly black and white, I do love this color combo as a fun twist in a zebra or striped rug. Here are some of my favorite black and white images, all found here.

I definitely have this image saved as a possible office inspiration one day
This one too and while I think I want white cabinets this surprising feels very light and airy

I love the stripes and the apple green combo

I leave you with this image, which is more how I would incorporate a black and white color combo into my own home. I love it!

Stay dry and have a great day!

Below I have featured some of my favorite items:

Kardemumma plant pots $24.99

Let's Talk Accessories

Hi all!
I hope everyone had a nice weekend. We didn't accomplish much but that is okay we took several long walks and watched a movie, along with a dinner or two out, and a nap each afternoon it was a very relaxing weekend.

One thing that in my opinion makes or breaks the decor in the room is accessories. I like a mixture of serious and playful items that not only tie in with the decor but also that reflect the homeowner.

Here are a few accessories that I am loving right now:

Any decor accessory that you have and love or that you're lusting over?

Have a great day!
