Living Large (in a little house)

9.17.2010

I've been wanting to post this house ever since I saw it in the new Country Living. I think it's such a neat space- especially for a young, single (hence the pink) designer. While I love my life... I did allow myself to daydream and think that if I was single and lived on my own- that I might decorate a house something like this! As for my house... I will honor my husband's #1 request: no pink.


Below is her basement that serves as a wine cellar & dining room.

How much fun to devote a whole bedroom to be your dressing room/closet.

I saw this home too and was shocked to see soooo much pink. I rather liked it though, and like what she did with her home. I don't think my husband would appreciate pink anywhere else but my daughters room... maybe I should test him and find ways to incorporate pink a bit more. :)

I LOVE them all! Beautiful!

I love, love all of the antiqued gold in all of these rooms!

This house is beautiful. I love the color scheme, although if I was on my own, I would have to squeeze some purple in!

Love the use of the basement for the DR/Cellar...oh how we lived before children, LOL! If our wine cellar didn't have a lock on it there would be a very expensive pool of wine in our basement.

And here I am with 4 bedrooms and not enough space! I love it when people make good use of rooms!

Yes, this is so cute and girly. I have sadly also thought about what my house would look like if I were single, ha. Not so much pink but probably less comfortable furniture!

Love pink, but my husband would say no as well! Did you see the pink bachelorette's apartment that EOS did? So fab...

Oh yes, I saw that in their recent issue. I thought the wine cellar idea was really unique and creative. Certainly not your typical 'storage' style basement!
Happy weekend to you!

Caroline said...

Oh man, I am addicted to Country Living. And I always get a ton of crap from my friends about it. BUT- this room PROVES Country Living has great style-and not all "country" style. I loved this room too!! I love all the dark walls. And the tips for small space living.

I went nuts for this when I saw it! This home is so romantic, dreamy and warm. Her kitchen is my favorite. Julie

I daydreamed a bit too. Only if I were single would this actually happen.

Me too! I felt guilty but, thought how fun it would be to have all that space to myself with the pink and gold accents. I am glad I am not the only one. :-)

I too oooed and ahhed over this gorgeous space when I got my recent copy of Country Living. My husband would never live in all those "pretty" rooms, but it sure is fun to dream about!

Heather said...

I saw this and agreed, so beautiful....ah our own space to decorate....LOTS of pink for me! For now my home is all done in black and white and I add my own pink with ROSES!

I just found your blog and love the ideas and images that you post. We're in the process of building a home and I'm always looking for inspiration! With three kids and twins on the way blogging has become a huge inspiration as we design...
Blessings.

I am going to have to check out Country Living this month! I am in LOVE with this house from just these few photos. Lucky for me I live alone so can have all the pink I want (and I def. take advantage of the girlie colors). Love the wine/dinning idea.

Catherine said...

I love all these photos, especially the last one. i now see that i'm part of your inspiration list. that really made my day. :) you inspire me A LOT! Thanks for that, Brooke! So glad you call you my blog and in real life friend!

I saw this in Country Living and couldn't get it off my mind...I absolutely love the dining room table in the basement/wine cellar, the many chandeliers, and the peacock on top of the fridge!
