FRIDAY FAVES-NEW JERSEY PROPERTY

The following pictures are taken from the Sotheby Realty site, where this property is listed for $1,997,000.00.

If I won the lottery, this property would ALMOST be enough to make me move to New Jersey.  Notice, I said “almost”.  No offense to those who live in New Jersey, but I’ve lived there before, and it would take a lot of enticement for me to return.  (I have to admit that where we lived and our circumstances probably had a lot to do with these feelings.)

FRIDAY FAVES-A CALIFORNIA ESTATE EDITION

31922_Paseo_Monte_Vista-27[1]

 

Unfortunately, this estate in California has already sold.  Otherwise, you know I’d be there to buy it at $6,500,000.00!  I’m such a silly dreamer.

FRIDAY FAVES-HISTORIC HOME EDITION

AT HOME IN ARAKNSAS

This home, in the historic Quapaw Quarter of Little Rock, Arkansas, was built in 1922.  I love that the current owner, Cassie Toro, has refurbished it while keeping as much of the original beauty as possible.

FRIDAY FAVES-LOUISE BROOKS EDITION

Some years ago, I fell in love with Louise Brooks’ Connecticut home in Traditional Home magazine.  I’m such a sucker for delft tile like that which surrounds her fireplace.  I love the botanicals on each side of the fireplace and the chintz fabric on the chair.

FRIDAY FAVES-VINTAGE CAMPER EDITION

 

DEAR LIZZIE

I’ve always loved tiny vintage campers, and I am amazed at the transformations that people make with them.  Isn’t all of this vintage red and white fun?

FRIDAY FAVES-SLEEPING BEAUTIES EDITION

HOUSE BEAUTIFUL

I’ve always wanted to “do” a room in all one fabric.  I love this look, but when you are only willing to buy resale or on sale, you don’t usually find enough of one fabric to create this look.  This looks like it could be used for a sitting room when not in use as a bedroom.  I like that the beautiful  wood on the desk breaks up the pattern a little.

FRIDAY FAVES-VACATION HOME DREAMIN’

My sweetheart accuses me of wanting a vacation home just so I’ll have another place to play with furniture and vignette arrangements.  Please don’t tell him, but he’s probably close to the truth.  All pictures in this post are from Midwest Living.  You can click on any picture to go to their site.

FRIDAY FAVES-A KITCHEN EDITION

CLASSY CLUTTER

I love this great idea for kitchen storage.  It doesn’t take up much room, but it holds a lot of cans and jars.

FRIDAY FAVES-A HOME IN CONNECTICUT EDITION

A home, on the Long Island Sound in Fenwick, Connecticut, is for sale.  Sigh.  Katharine Hepburn's former Connecticut home sits on 3.4 acres of land and includes over 8,300 square feet of living space inside. It has three floors and six bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. <br /><br />The home also features seven and a half bathr

On The Red Carpet

It once belonged to Katharine Hepburn. Sigh.

FRIDAY FAVES-ELECTION EDITION

I took an unscheduled blog break.  We have been campaigning for a year, and the election was over this past Tuesday, the 20th.  My sweetheart won, but I had no idea what a toll it had all taken on me until it was over.  I ran around on nervous energy for a few days, and then I hit the wall and collapsed!  Politics are not for me.  This was an excruciating roller coaster ride, and I am so thankful to be off of it.

FRIDAY FAVES-LIVING SPACE EDITION

HOUSE & HOME

Some of us call it a living room and others call it a family room.  Sometimes, they are even called great rooms.

FRIDAY FAVES-OLD WORLD EDITION

I love the old look of this new construction. I’m ready to move in.  I’d love to lounge in one of those Adirondack chairs, or sit on that wonderful screened porch.

FRIDAY FAVES-RENOVATION EDTION

I love to see an old house renovated, especially if it looks like it is likely to be demolished.  Did you see this amazing restoration in Mississippi, shared by COUNTRY LIVING?

Eric J. Smith, Architect

My Friday Faves this week are from an architect’s site.  Eric J. Smith obviously designs high-end structures, but they all have a classic element that makes them feel like renovated vintage homes.

FRIDAY FAVES-SHUYLER SAMPERTON EDITION

SHUYLER SAMPERTON INTERIOR DESIGN

I found a lot of faves on the Shuyler Samperton Interior Design site.  I think I could (and probably would) throw a party in this huge bathroom.  I love the floor tiles, the tub, the tub fixtures, the vanity, that giant framed art, and the door to outside.  I do think the room deserves an overhead light fixture that makes more of a statement.
