Happy New Year and Happy Anniversary! Your home is wonderful. I was so pleasantly surprised at Christmas by my two closest friends. They gave me the fabulous silver planter I have had my eye on for the longest time! I can’t wait to use it. So my next want from the store is one of the smaller silver planters. This is a bad (wonderfully bad) place for me! Thank you.

So how is 2013 treating you so far? With the exception of my husband coming down with pneumonia, it was a wonderful holiday season. Funny,? New Years day unexpectedly ended up being one of the best days. First off, ? it was the first day in 8 days that hubs felt up to getting fully dressed and coming downstairs, then it was a continuation of our movie marathon, we watched Dances with Wolves, Meet Joe Black, Under the Tuscan Sun? and a few others, all the while I was cooking the entire day (but really loving it) I made beef stew, paninis, homemade basked mac, even small apple tarts..yes I was on a roll! My husband spent a lot of time exploring my blog and was thoroughly entertained and it was just a great family day, alongside a roaring fire, it was spent at home enjoying each others company….it was cold outside but really warm and cozy inside. So life is slowly getting back to normal after the holiday blizzard (not literal but the whirlwind). I have yet to take down any decorations…thinking I will give it another week, not quite ready to say goodbye to the magic of Christmas or the hard work I put into it:)

?

Today’s Which Would You Choose is a fun one. Roll with me here……the designer fairies have paid you a visit. Hey, its a new year…time for a change, right? They have told you that you get to have one designer of your choosing redo your entire home soup to nuts. Only catch? You cannot have any say, you are at their talented mercy and must go on a little “vacay “for a week while they work their magic. Which of these talented tastemakers would you trust to redo your entire home? Many if not most you know, but I have also included two pictures of their work that I think? represents their style. This is a tough one, though I think I have it narrowed down to two. No wait, I mean three. OK, two. Here we go…..so which would you choose!?

Which would you choose? And a giveaway!

Hi there, hope you had a wonderful weekend! Ours was actually quite relaxing and it was a true treat to have some real downtime. No workers, no chaos, son came home from overseas safe and sound.  I also was busy packaging up orders to send out next week. And my first batch have already left the building! Also started adding new products to my site today, more to come!  So lots going on in that arena.  Thank you so much for your continued support and encouragement. To say thanks I am offering another fun giveaway! All details on bottom of post.  

Moving on to this afternoons post….today’s “Which would you choose” is something you will really need to think about. Imagine this- a fairy decorating godmother has come along and said that you can have your entire house redecorated by one designer. You must only choose one and you must choose now. Imagine handing over your trust and faith to someone to transform your home into your dream home. Imagine their touch all over your home. A style for everyone…what appeals to you, transitional and calm, fancy and formal, country elegance?  Do you already have a favorite in mind? Which designer would you choose? Well today you get to decide….below 16 very accomplished decorators with a sampling of their style. I can’t wait to see who you choose!

Sunday Showhouse, you’re invited and a major giveaway!!

Greetings on this lovely Sunday! You know what day it is…time to tour three incredible homes! 

But before we start I want to say how much I appreciate the support that has been shown and continues to me and my blog, through comments, my growing list of followers and subscribers and your many emails! You have no idea how much they mean to me and how each and every one puts a smile on my face. I feel like I have grown so much since I started blogging in January, I have expanded my design repertoire more than I thought possible, have been inspired more than words can convey and have met so many amazingly nice, talented and genuine people that have touched me. So as a “thank you” I am thrilled to  announce an awesome giveaway……

This fabulous Kilim bench from Safavieh Home and me



  Love this and could see this in so many places in so many styles of homes….retails for $695.00. To be eligible, you must do the following:

1.Visit www.safaviehhome.com and take a look at their incredible things then visit Safavieh at their facebook page, and leave a comment telling them your favorite item. Click here to go to their Facebook page. That’s it! Your name will automatically be in the drawing once it appears on their facebook page. (1 entry)
.
2. Leave a comment here telling me which is your favorite home from today’s showhouse and why (1 entry)

This contest will run though next Thursday night, June 16th and we will announce a winner on Friday morning, June 17th! Good luck…

Now onto our showhouse…….We start off in California, take a detour in Alabama and end our fun little tour, on tranquil unspoiled island of gorgeous St. John. I don’t know about you but I appreciate Sundays more than I ever have before…with busy chock full weekdays, I anticipate the relaxation that Sunday brings. How about you? Hope you are enjoying a great weekend. Lets get started! Would love to know as always if you have  a favorite.

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA This fabulous residence was decorated by Paul Wiseman. I feel  like it could be on Lake Cuomo not San Francisco Bay, which is no slouch believe me but the ring of  Italy does sound a little more exotic! I LOVE the interiors of this home with their heavy European influence. The colors are so warm, elegant and soothing. You could be hard pressed to say this is a brand new home, love how everything looks aged and antiqued. I think its exquisite, would love to know what you think. Please come on in……..


LOVE this kitchen open to a family room….what a great spot to gather family and friends…
Beautiful melody of colors
Don’t you just love cozy little nooks like this one?

Love the antiqued mirror above a dressing area as was done here

Arent’ the colors gorgeous? Love that chest and chairs….
LOVE antiqued mirror panels like this….
Love this with the pergola!
I could host some cocktail party out here!

ON THE LAKE, ALABAMA. I love this home, a quintessential lake house in Alabama that gets a serious dose of sophisticated rustic decor by Susan Ferrier. A stunning four story structure, to take full advantage of the amazing lake views was designed by well known Bobby McAlpine. The colors used are earthy, soothing and calming. The flow is fabulous from room to room and I just love the soaring ceilings and big wide windows. The color range is neutral and range from the cool grays to warm putty… a combination I have always loved. I like how the quiet interiors allow the beauty outside to remain the focal point of this fabulous setting. Step inside and see for yourself!

Love the benches in the kitchen, its such an inviting space

Love the earthy colors and the soaring ceilings

Talk about dining with a view! Love this spot…

ST. JOHN, CARIBBEAN Wow this is a home I wouldn’t mind escaping to every weekend. Ugh,..dreamy, perfect and heavenly are three words that come to mind. Beautiful open, elegant spaces make up this fabulous home on the beautiful unspoiled island of St. John. The architecture was done by Mike de Haas and interiors are by Twila Wilson. I love how the windows were left alone to absorb and take in the spectacular vistas from every angle. With a view like that who wants window treatments! The outside spaces speak for themselves and I would be only too happy to plant myself there with nothing but a weeks worth of wonderful reading material! Love it…..

Perfection!

I would never ever want to leave this spot! (made it my new screensaver)
Not too bad, huh? Do you have a favorite? If you had to pack things up and move tomorrow, which would speak to you more? I don’t know- the views and setting of St. John combined with the old world European elegance of San Francisco complimented by the gorgeous earthy rustic vibe of the Alabama home would just about do it for me! Don’t forget to visit Safavieh and then go to their Facebook page here to enter the contest!  Hope you have a wonderful Sunday and hope that you are enjoying a great weekend!
