Open House: Living Livelier
When Deborah's email popped into my in box I literally thought I was going crazy. Earlier in the day I had been catching up on her blog and made a note to myself to email her an invite to be part of the Open House series.
Well I jotted down her email address and decided to get some work done first and then email her. About 5 minutes later I got an email from her with a bunch of pictures of her space! She must have read my mind.
Taking a step into Deborah's entry and I’m already feeling at home:
-Madeline Weinrib rug
-Sunburst mirror from Home Goods
- Red cabinet was brought over from Japan by her grandparents in the 1970’s.
-Keep Calm & Carry On artwork by Annechovie
Guest Bathroom: I love seeing some of favorites all together. Silhouttes, Imperial Trellis and the color green.
Love that she got creative with some left-over wallpaper and dressed up a plain jane cabinet.
Kitchen Nook: Deborah’s love for Imperial Trellis continues into her eat in kitchen.
Highlight from this room:
The ebay chairs she found and recovered with her monogram.
Sitting Room: Love that she even has a sitting room. I’m totally jealous my teeny tiny little cottage doesn’t have that luxury.
-Chic end tables, map artwork & globes from Home Goods.
-Hermes coffee table from Decorator Tag Sale
-Greek Key JA pillow
Opposite side of sitting room:
-Living Room: I think this room is a perfect marriage of my tastes and my husband tastes. Don’t invite us over Deb, because I don’t think we would leave! :)
Close up of toss pillows:
Sweet family memories up on the wall:
Deborah’s latest project was wallpapering the back of her secretary with Chiang Mai Dragon.
Highlights of the room:
- Home Goods would be proud to see this room. The orange chairs, cowhide ottoman, black bench & lamps are all from there!
-Chic yellow coffee table from The Glass Knob, NH for only $68
-Custom rug from JA
-Large wooden storage hanging piece above sofa was a vintage find from grandma that use to be in a hotel.
-Fretwork fabric in toss pillows & accent chair in sitting room from Duralee.
As if I wasn’t already in love I also found out that they have a pool out back, which means pool house!
Deborah’s home is perfect example of my design philosophy. It’s part thrift store/flea market finds, part chic but cheap steals from big box stores and some designer splurges.
Deborah, I hope that big house of your has a guest room, because I want an invite to see it all in person.
If you have a home that you think HHFITD readers would enjoy email me with pictures! For those of that you have already emailed me don’t worry I’m going through them all and you should hear from me soon.
