ThingsWeLove:White Picket Fences

House Plans and More
It’s the dream, isn’t it?

The charming home with the white picket fence…
Better Homes and Gardens
It does SO MUCH MORE than just encapsulate the yard or keep the dogs (and children!) in.

A white picket fence says, “Welcome!”

A picket fence adds a sense of history and the feeling of being safe inside.

If the white picket fence wins first prize, the unpainted picket fence is certainly a close second.

Crisp and clean…

Or lush with vegetation…

We like the picket fence any way!
Brandy Jaggers
But, we have to admit, we like it best when someone we love is playing nearby. (Okay, we don’t actually know this little boy, but aren’t you in love anyway?)
Do you love picket fences? We hope your day is wonderful!

InGoodTaste:WendyPosardAssociates

There’s a lot to be said for the way a home looks, sure.
But, for us, it’s even more about the way a space makes us feel.
Relaxed, calm, happy, content…
Those are just a few of the adjectives that come to mind when we consider how we would most like to be when in the places we spend the most time.
Those are the same adjectives that come to mind when we view these gorgeous spaces designed by Wendy Posard and Associates.
The team’s interiors are clean yet finished, soothing yet energetic.
When we feel like we’re looking in a room where we’d like to sit and stay awhile, that’s how we know we’ve found something that’s in good taste!
Everything about this kitchen is amazing, but the floor really takes the cake! So cool!
That classic black and white is an unbeatable combination, even in the kitchen. And we love our flowers just like this: fresh, fragrant and far from contrived.
But, then again, some spaces are simply magical all on their own…
The ideal combination of a perfect view from the inside out and the outside in!
The mixed materials in this house add charm and undeniable curb appeal. It’s so very inviting!
Speaking of inviting… You’re all invited to visit our friend Mary Ann at Classic Casual Home! www.classiccasualhome.com! She is hosting a giveaway to help Ugandan women widowed by AIDS support themselves and their children. What an amazing cause!
Thanks, everyone, for visiting us today. We appreciate you all so much!

Things We Love: Balconies

It must have been Romeo and Juliet that first made it the ultimate in romantic locations.

From moonlit handholding to midnight kisses, and, of course, that all-important confession-of-undying-love monologue, there’s no better place for getting that stomach-drop feeling.

Balconies certainly give us butterflies.
And they can almost always make us fall in love with a home’s exterior.

Even if you can’t step our the door onto the balcony, it still looks beautiful when gracing the front of the home.
House Beautiful
If it comes with a fabulous view, all the better.
Chanel
A river… The ocean… Chanel…
Parisian balcony
The airy openness of a wrought iron balcony is the perfect way to add depth without bulk.

Gorgeous flowering plants are icing on the balcony cake.

This is just the kind of ancient balcony we can imagine Juliet stepping onto and hearing that timeless soliloquy…
Lolita
No matter the style, shape or feel, we think the balcony has the kind of epic staying power of — well — Shakespeare.
