I absolutely love home. Home is the place we all lay our head. It is a place of comfort & refuge from the world. I love to see how other people decorate their space to bring peace & balance to their living areas & lives. I am starting this new series to showcase some home decor fabs that I simply love. Nesting at it's finest! I am so excited to share with you today Deserae from Peeking Thru The Sunflowers . She is my first featured home in my line of home tours to come. Her style reminds me of one of my favorite furniture stores & their displays. Restoration Hardware but with a flare!
First I have to point out Deserae lives in a cottage. It is so cute & the ideal looking cottage surrounded by natural beauty. I am gushing over that darling rose bush.
She has a koi fish pond that is absolutely stunning. I can just imagine taking a Spring walk around the yard hearing the gentle sound of the mini water falls. What a peaceful & serene setting.
The tiny touches outside the home are so lovely even the display of her extra pots add natural functional beauty.
I can tell Deserae makes great use of her natural light and playing up her windows. Look over in that corner to your left at the little built in cabinet! Wow how cute is that. I love the colors she choose for this living room but I also love that she left the little cabinet stained brown. It flows nicely with all the whites & grays. That couch looks so comfy cozy. It is awesome how she pulled of an eclectic elegant look even using some industrial elements like that coffee table!
Off to the side of her comfy living room she has an elegant romantic extra sitting area set apart to welcome guests she wants to dazzle. I love how it is all one room yet 2 rooms. She made the break well yet it all flows together amazingly. I am flipping over that rocking horse! Also notice down to the left hand side her collection of canes or maybe that is old umbrellas? What a great idea to display your collection in a bunch as part of your decor! I like how the color of her wood flooring is perfect for her colors of choice. It makes her grays,whites & earth tones pop in it's best array. Check out her blog to see her before's and afters of of her table & armor pieces she painted herself.
That seat is ready for some afternoon tea & chatting. I love that bright green fern that helps make a visually appealing room divider.
I love in that bathroom the sink skirt & the chalk board in the hallway. I really like how see displayed random beloved extras in the hallway as well.
Oh my I love that skinny little sink window with the charming chandelier. Her choice of curtains was perfect for that window. And that cheery little tree peeking out the window is so sweet.
I love white but I admire there is a balance of some other colors in this kitchen as well using earth tones. And just check out that cabinet hardware it is so pretty on display.
You don't think of the word cozy for a kitchen much but for this kitchen I have to say it sends the message of cute n cozy!
I love the various textures in this dinning room. The chairs look comfy & inviting for a great meal around the table. I love the glam splashes in the room. It is a little room with a big impact.
Thank you so much Deserae for the peek into your darling home. You have done an outstanding job nesting a peaceful space. I truly admire your style.
