House Tour: Peter Pennoyer

We don’t know about you, but we love a cedar shake house. We’re pretty much convinced that you could slap cedar shakes on the ugliest cinderblock building in the world and instantly make it charming.

On the flip side, we think everything that Peter Pennoyer designs is so gorgeous that it would be charming even if it were built out of cinderblock.

Fortunately for us, this home is cedar shake and designed by the peerless Peter Pennoyer. It’s a pretty unbeatable combination!

Just peeking inside this lovely home feels restful. We’re instantly transported to a seaside escape made for relaxation and spending long, lazy days recharging and taking a break from the fast pace of the rest of the world.

This beautiful bay window is perfect for taking advantage of every inch of view while still feeling completely traditional and totally lovely.

This dining room proves that architectural details don’t have to be ornate to feel luxurious. The simplicity of the woodwork and built-ins in this room is in keeping with the more casual tone of the house while still making it feel perfectly planned down to the last inch.

From the stylish built-ins to the heavy custom doors, the architectural details in this home give it the feeling of total quality. Antique accents lend that collected feeling to this newer home.

A modern range hood and an antique-feeling island lend a lovely juxtaposition to this large yet cozy kitchen.

There is nothing like a Dutch door to add that homey feeling to a space.

Open shelving and a gardening sink keep clutter out of the kitchen–and ensure that fresh blooms abound all year long.

If we could choose one thing that our homes absolutely have to have, it’s light! These intricate windows add that in high style.

There’s no better accent in a master that feels like a sanctuary than a cozy reading nook. It’s the perfect place for coffee and PJs!

For the ultimate in inspiration, this is the ultimate office! No clutter, just a fabulous view.

We love a garden seat in the bathroom! It’s the perfect spot for storing bath essentials.

A fun, eclectic bar area is perfect for entertaining!

But, if you’re like us, you’d agree that there’s no place like the perfect porch for savoring a beautiful beach day.

We hope you have a fabulous day!

What People are Saying About Slightly South of Simple:

“My prediction is that writers come and writers go, but Kristy Woodson Harvey is here to stay. The warmth, wit, and wisdom of this novel pave her way into the exclusive sisterhood of southern writers.” (—The Huffington Post)

Favorite Travel Tips

______________________________________

We can never start the new year without thinking about health and fitness and this year is no exception.  I’m thinking about purchasing some new shoes and I’ve heard great things about these running shoes, even if my “running” is just a brisk walk. I’ve had these for several years, and just thought I’d try something different.  I need a few new workout pieces and this jacket would work over any outfit, but I’m loving this color.  These shirts are perfect for my morning “run” and on those unseasonably warm mornings at the beach, I’m thinking about this.  These pants are my “go to”.  Do you have a favorite workout brand?  We’d love to know!

August 8. The beginning of the end. Of summer, that is. Before the summer comes to a close, we thought we’d take a little trip–to Jenni Kayne’s Lake Tahoe Home via Domino Magazine!

One Room Challenge Kitchen!

 Hold onto your hats, one room challengers! We are so excited to be participating in our first ever One Room Challenge, hosted by the fabulous, lovely and amazing Linda from Calling it Home. Thanks so much for having us, Linda! You may need to shield your eyes on the next couple of photos. Because redoing this kitchen is going to be a bit of a project, to say the least… 

kitchen

 Basically no natural light, five layers of linoleum tile, crumbling plywood cabinets and faux-wood paneling… It’s really hard to choose a favorite thing about this “before” kitchen.
