Thought you might enjoy some photos of my house...
« on: February 06, 2011, 04:51:38 PM »
I still have a lot of painting to do and need new floor covering in bedroom... but I like to take my time... plus it's $$$$$$.  Love to see some of your homes.

Thanks for sharing, Sue. You obviously put a lot of care into your home. I love the way you play with color. It's very elegant yet comfortable.

That was my first reaction as well.  Your use of color is striking in every room.

The decor is beautiful without making it look like a museum. Elegant but comfortable, too.

I love the kitchen and the yard.

Your home is beautiful, Sue! If you ever want to change careers, I think the  interior design community has a niche for you.

 My DD would love to have a window seat like that.  But there's no place to put one here - not without some remodeling anyway!

Your new master bath is beautiful - love the lighting!  Do you happen to know what the name of the paint color is in your living room?

Thanks for sharing.  :)

SueP, have you read The Well Dressed Home? It looks like your interior design might reflect your wardrobe.

If you haven't, I'll be happy to send you my copy. It's a book that is meant to be shared. :)

I agree with everybody, Sue. You have a warm and lovely home.  Thank you for sharing.  I have a house that has been invaded by a 5- year old boy. There is warning sign at the door and you have to sign a waiver before we let you in.

I gave DH a T-shirt that's like your sign, makinalist. It's a picture of a Yorkie and footprints that says "My Yorkie Walks All Over me." It takes a very secure man to wear that one!

Know what else I noticed about Sue's house?  (Ahem)  I could tell that every piece was chosen because she really, really liked it.  Maybe even one at a time.  Am I right, Sue?  (Handing you back your topic ...)

I loved the little sideboard in the kitchen. Such a nice touch.

Me, too.  Kind of gives it that country cottage look, huh?  Everything looks so cozy.  I want to stay in the guest room.

I particularly love the artwork over the sideboard.
(Thanks, makinalist, for getting us re-focused.)

I've been away from the board for a while.  Thanks, everyone for your compliments.  My house has been a labor of love.  I've gotten rid of anything I didn't love... even if it cost a pretty penny.  My boyfriend designed my kitchen and tiny powder room [which is too tiny to get a picture] and I had a designer do my master bath, but I picked out and arranged everything else.

The chandelier and sconces in the master bath were my mother's.  I built the bathroom around that.

Love you guys.

Don't. You won't see pics of my house displayed here for that very reason! :lol:

And, of course, if I were taking pictures of my house to show all of you, you can bet I'd clean up first and toss everything under the beds and sofas! :D

It's easy being neat and tidy when you live by yourself. When I was married, I would be ashamed to let guests come unless I spent two days straightening and cleaning

  • Eyes: green with yellow flecks and a dark grey rim
  • Hair: medium dark brown with lightish highlights, very thick and almost curly
