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-FERGUSON & SHAMAMIAN EDITION

Ferguson & Shamamian Architects

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.

FRIDAY FAVES-A KITCHEN EDITION

Can Cab_2_PINTEREST[1]

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-AD BATHING BEAUTIES EDITION

I discovered all of these bathing beauties on the Architectural Digest site.

Ralph Lauren's Bedford, New York, pool-house

Architectural Digest

Isn’t this bathroom charming?  It is in Ralph Lauren’s pool house at his Bradford New York Estate.

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.

The Enchanted Home

FRIDAY FAVES-SEPTEMBER 19, 2013

There is no rhyme or reason for my favorites today.  I started out with some beautiful home images, and suddenly found myself posting fun Halloween ideas. 

SEPT 19 FF 1

COUNTRY LIVING

There is nothing I don’t like about this image.  I love it all – the color scheme, those curtains, that shabby table, the roosters, and the overall casual and inviting feel.

SEPT 19 FF 2

KNIGHT CARR & COMPANY

Buffalo checked fabrics always attract me.  The unique and gorgeous hutch, filled with Majolica, makes me sigh, and I want the three confit pots on top of the hutch.  The symmetry of the hutch wall, with the framed botanicals on each side appeal to me too.  Although I’m on a mission to add touches of red to our home, and I really like the upholstery on the bench, the bench and the rug seem to not fit with the balanced look of this room.  But who am I to question REAL decorators?  I think my obsession with symmetry is rearing its ugly head.

SEPT 19 FF 3

KNIGHT CARR & COMPANY

Another of their images that speaks to me --  the long, shabby desk, those figural lamps, the French style chair and a wonderful window.  And to top it all off, a blue and white pot filled with Hydrangeas. My obsession with symmetry is showing again, because I love the vignette on this desk.

Master Bath

SOUTHERN LIVING

What a unique tub, and it would be wonderful to be able to soak and enjoy a view to the outside – especially if there is a walled courtyard outside.  Isn’t that wall-mounted tub fixture great?

SEPT 19 FF -4

ITSY BITS AND PIECES

This is when my brain suddenly, and without any thought, switched to Halloween images.  I love this moon face, painted on a baseball, and the funnel hat topping it.  The cherry wallpaper behind it is so cute, and of course, a rooster and hen are always welcome in one of my favorite images.  I even like the addition of an old bingo ball to keep the moon from rolling.

Night of Terror

BETTER HOMES AND GARDENS

I think this literary nod to Halloween and Edgar Allen Poe is so fun, and even makes a pretty vignette.  I’ve always loved antique typewriters, and isn’t that old clock face a great addition?  I even like the pumpkin-filled wire basket under the desk.

SEPT 19 FF 7

AROUND THE HOUSE

If you haven’t met Agatha and Andrew and their twins, Hattie and Hugo, you need to go over to see them.  They are house-sitting for Phyllis for awhile, and Agatha is guest posting on her blog.  They are such a fun family, and this week, they are hosting an hors devours party to introduce a Count and Countess.

SEPT 19 FF 8

AROUND THE HOUSE

They also seem to be enjoying the pool!

LADIES HOME JOURNAL

These tiny, pierced pumpkins look so pretty on the candlesticks.  I'm thinking that scooping a tiny pumpkin out wouldn’t be as yucky as working with a big one.  I hope to try to replicate these this season.  Don’t be surprised if you find a tablescape on my blog, with these pumpkin candles marching down the center of the table.  But then again, don’t be surprised if you don’t find them on a tablescape.  I am great at dreaming of completing projects, but not so great at implementing the projects.

Reminder:  These are not my images.  If you would like to pin or share these images, please go to the original site (click on the image or the link under each image), and share from that site.  Thank you.

If one of your images is featured, please feel free to post one of my “Featured” buttons (found on my sidebar), and thank you for the inspiration you provide.
