Home Tour: Bungalow Style

This is the porch people, the porch! That mirror and that table, together, make for a perfect arrangement.

I love that the outside of the doors and windows are painted that great spring green. It makes for a striking pop of color when you let the fresh air in. And not a bad view from the bed, right!

Speaking of the bedroom, what a fantastic idea to use a screen as a headboard. I really like the scale here.

Okay, so this is brilliant- wood slats and "s" hooks= perfect art wall.
Not your typical nursery and that's exactly what I love about it. You can't completely see it in this shot, but there is a shelf built around the sides and top of the window over the crib, great storage and makes for an interesting display.


I love the horizontal wainscot and the simple, serene vibe in this bathroom.

Oh you sassy, green, tufted chesterfield!

Another brilliant built-in bookcase and really, there are just too many great ideas in this space to enumerate. Just drink it all in...

Vintage, yet still fresh. And I can't get over those green window frames, love!

Um yeah, I'll take a mojito and call dibs on the third cushion from the right.
Seriously, I could move into this lovely bungalow and not change a thing. Such a stylish, comfortable, welcoming home.

Geez, I love that green. No, I mean I love that green.

So sad that "O at Home" closed. That mag had some good features.

What really gets me in this house is the richness of color, something I'm trying to create in my own home.

nkp said...

I so agree, Maggie, the color is done just right in this home and it perfectly travels from room to room.
