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.)

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

When I stumbled onto the Ferguson & Shamamian Architects site, I couldn’t pull myself away from it. I am sharing pictures of a few of the different things from several different houses on their site.

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.

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.
