Which would you choose?

Hi there, feel like a new person this morning, woke up migraine free! This weekends headache was worse than usual and very stubborn but finally, last night it decided to go away and I hope for a long long time. For this weeks Which would you choose, its all about style preference. 16 gloriously beautiful homes….not a bad one in the bunch.
?Imagine you had to relocate tomorrow, and to make it enticing I will say to anywhere your little heart desires. Then you get to choose your home. Something for everyone. Is a move on your horizon? Are you going up or scaling down? I have a friend who is scaling down (by choice) now that the last of her three kids has headed to college and she is so excited. They lived in a large beautiful Georgian and just closed on a darling Hamptons shingle style home half the size of their former home. Change is good…so imagine you have to make a change yourself! Cannot wait to see which you choose…….and here we go!

I have my eye on a few….love the charm of some, the grandeur of others and the classic laid back vibe of yet a few more. If I were to move (though I always say I will be buried here) it would be to a smaller home, with lots of charm of course. So…its your turn, which would you choose? Do tell and have yourself a fabulous Monday!

Sunday showhouse…….and you’re invited!

Happy Sunday! Its Oscar day….love watching the Academy awards and am making a wonderful dinner for the occasion! I am in an “arugula state of mind” hence my menu of ?Spaghetti with arugula and lemon, a small flank steak marinated in arugula oil and a fresh baby arugula salad with a spritz of lemon and olive oil. I have made them all before and they are each AMAZING in a simple, fresh kind of way.?

?Normally we go out on Sunday night but there is no way I am missing a minute of the fun pre shows, watching all the glamorous and sometimes not so glamorous fashions make their grand entrance onto the famed red carpet. I am personally rooting for The Kings speech, such a wonderful film and I am always thrilled when I see a movie “of real substance” ?honored and recognized by being given an esteemed award like an Oscar, which I personally think its very deserving of. Just in case you too, are in for the day or just having a lazy morning…you might enjoy this quick run through of open house Sunday. Three entirely different locales…and three very different homes. All so beautiful, each with its own distinct personality. Do you have a favorite? Enjoy your day!

First stop is in Palm Beach,Florida and to this gorgeous Mediterranean..I am normally not a big fan of Mediterranean homes but when done right, they are truly magnificent. Case in point is this fabulous newly constructed home with?vistas and views out of this world! I appreciate the attention to detail shown throughout the house from the main hallways and their softly glazed gray walls to the stunning covered porch. The house also has so much natural sunlight…..everything just glows. I think this house does Addison Mizner proud!

Then we are off to Houston, Texas….. an area certainly no stranger to beautiful grand homes. This French inspired home is beautifully done in soft neutrals throughout and though formal it is still very much a family home. Love the lush green foliage and old world feeling that the home, though newer has maintained. It is so important when building a new home to pay close attention to the landscape, the setting and to do ones best to preserve the integrity of the land on which the home is built. I think they did an outstanding job here.

Last we go back to East Coast, to the famous quintessential New England vacation island, none other than wonderful Nantucket …here is a beautiful understated wood shingle home decorated by Victoria Hagan. Love the crisp, fresh decor…very cohesive, elegant without feeling stuffy and breathtaking at every turn. Definitely the ultimate beach house in my book!

Wow! Those are some beautiful homes indeed. Do you have a favorite? I would have to pick a few spaces from each home to make the ultimate home……each of them are so well done. Enjoy your Sunday, hope its relaxing!
