You're invited...


...in my house! I know I have posted photos of my house before, but things have since changed (don't they always?). Basically, all last week & weekend I got the house bug, big time. I was myopic in my all-out obsession with all things house related, so much so that I barely worked at my shop or dealt with clothing at all. It needed to happen though, that one-sightedness often takes focus only on Dear Golden and everything else seems to fall by the wayside. It felt really great to step away from the shop and futz with the house, it's very decompressing, there's something oddly soothing about moving one piece of pottery around the house 5 times before picking *the right* spot. I weeded out so many things I had been hanging on to (including pieces of furniture I wasn't all that keen on) and finally found the midcentury wall unit (for an insane steal of $250) I have been searching for for what seems like an age. Although there isn't a wall available in the house where I can erect all three sections of it, I know where ever I live next will have one! So I separated the pieces and used 2 of them on opposite sides of the dining room where they work perfectly, yay! The couch is also a new addition, an estate sale purchase and I just love how it only has one arm.

What a great place. My powder room is similar to yours with blue walls and lots of vintage pics. You home is well styled and inviting.

I love you. And I love your house. No matter how old I get - probably if I don't even remember my name - I will have vivid memories of your beautiful space. Like my grandparent's house, or my childhood home . . . I can close my eyes and just feel myself there. What is so special to me about your house is that everything in it was hand-picked/found by you. You didn't just go to Ethan Allen and buy a living room "set." I think it is also inspiring that you aren't afraid to change things around. Thanks so much for these photos - they were just what I needed this morning.

I love your space and I'm glad you shares it with us! I was especially drawn to your pottery collection. I have an affinity for pottery, especially Frankoma lately. Really neat pieces!

I need that week. There are so many things I need to get rid of and rearrange, it's ridiculous. Looking through your pictures is seriously making me salivate...you have such a beautiful home. I the footstool in the living room is my favorite thing.

Your collection of frames and the jewelry display are pretty awesome. I'm looking to do something similar in my new apartment. Any tips?

Just too much inspiration to handle!

Even better in PERSON!

Heather said...

Your house is GORGEOUS. It's just...perfect. Well done!

Dashfield Vintage said...

Oh how beautiful! It looks so light and bright and calm. I really need to do the same with our house. The problem with being a collector and vintage enthusiast is that you just end up with more and more crap and you finally just have to be ruthless and do a clear out. I think you've inspired me! Thank you:)

oh, albatross said...

it's lovely lauren.

Teresa said...

Your house truly is a home!
Such a wonderful reflection of your style and passion Lauren.

I've said it before... your home is just perfect: and not catalogue perfect, but 'I live here and it reflects who I am' perfect.
