Like a good glass of red wine, this home tour should be savored.
On Saturday morning, youngest daughter and I flew to Chicago to visit one of my oldest and very dearest friends. For the last two years, she has lived abroad with her husband and children. First, in England and then in France. For a glimpse into her life across the pond, go here: http://daffodil-hill.blogspot.com/search?q=across+the+pond
I've included shots taken in the evening and during the daytime. Either way, this abode is lovely and colorful.
While the construction is new, this place feels sturdy and substantial, a house that will age gracefully for sure.
Y'all know I love color, and I also admire folks who decorate with their own tastes and experiences in mind. A red dining room, if done well, is never out of style.
On Saturday night there was risotto on the stove and the sound of children and the eager anticipation of catching up with an old friend. Nothing says love like a well-worn pot on the stove.
Such a beautiful table!
I'll have more pictures of this fabulous home on Monday. For now, I am off to enjoy my last weekend before teachers return to school on Monday.
Have a great weekend!
