I’d Live Here – Swedish Farmhouse

A small remodeled farmhouse in the South West part of Sweden. The family who now owns the home waited patiently for 10 years before they could purchase the home of their dreams. Now they and their four children have worked for years to restore the home.

With bight open rooms, a stylish mix of old and new furnishings, and handpicked furniture the home perfectly suits their family of six. I think this home would suit me pretty well too. The fact that the family took the original elements of the home and restored them rather than tear them out is inspiring. Like finding and healing the roots of  te home.

Not to mention the property is settled on a half-acre of land which backs up to a forest. It doesn’t get much better than that. The owner and designer had a couple of tips that I really took to heart.

• Love your house, although it is not perfect and newly renovated. You can not change everything at once.

• Take your time. Rome was not built in a day. Think about the different possibilities and what you want from your home before thinking about changing it all.

Currently Crushing – Wood Herringbone

The sometimes overwhelming search for out own little South Laguna cottage has left me checking listings every day. Every. Single. Day. Which isn’t so bad since it’s part of what I do and it amounts to lots of daydreaming. In my recent search I stumbled on a beautiful little cottage that while not quite financially possible, there’s still dreaming right?  The cottage featured a little detail that I couldn’t get out of my mind, vintage herringbone floors. I spent time dreaming of those beautiful wood floors. So now I’ve been obsessing over gorgeous wood floors dreaming of future home details to keep tucked away.

I love the idea of spending time laying down a wood floor that would hold so many memories for our family. Yes, a floor, it’s crazy to think that a simple (well sort or simple) detail could make a home so special. But in this instance it does.
