Sweet Blue House

I just LOVE this little blue house in my neighborhood. It has seriously got me thinking I'm ready to paint my house again. The blue foyer in the house is so restful and calm, don't you think?
I love they way they've used blue and brown. Here's the den with built in and then a really cool, BIG tv cabinet. Check out the coffee's a good size but since it's glass doesn't seem to take up a lot of room.

Isn't the dining room divine!?!? LOVE the big windows ....

The kitchen is a pretty mocha color and has lots of room to spread out and make big, delicious meals. The little boys room is a pretty rum raisin color, that has touches of blue in the bedding, globe, etc.
Here's the master suite and it's a beautiful chocolate color. The white crown moulding makes the color look crisp, doesn't it?
The top of the landing has a cozy chair to plop down in and enjoy the sun streaming through the big window.
This Garden Room is a favorite of mine. In a lot of the homes in my older neighbor, people have turned the porch or screened porch into another living area. Isn't this room inviting with the pretty blue and wonderful big picture window views?
This rounded deck is the view from the blue garden room.

As an added bonus, there is a detached garage AND a huge EXTRA room, which could be used for a multitude of different ideas. I'm thinking I would turn it into a craft room!

Check out all the space for crafting! Or it could be turned into a mother-in-law suite. The sky's the limit on this pretty little area.


  1. I've never thought of using brown as a color in my home, but it sure works there! Older homes lend themselves to such great decorating!

  2. Beautiful home. I love the curved deck and the landing with the comfy chair - what a great place to curl up with a good book and a tall glass of tea. Thanks for sharing this beautiful home. Kathy
