today we round up a full week of fabulous sneak peeks with christina flowers of magnolia moonlight. the architect/industrial designer turned graphic designer opens the doors to the home she shares with her (just married!!!) husband. man, i’d kill to have a porch like that to chill out on at the end of a day. . . don’t forget to check out her newly launched website (cute calendars and cards!) and more photos of her home here. [thanks, christina!] -anne
[above: My husband built this coffee table. He incorporated some wooden boxes from a project I did in grad school. It has these fun windows where I can put paintings/little chalk boards… and it holds my magazines and sketchbooks so there are not piles everywhere like there used to be! The painting above the couch of the tree was done by my husbands grandfather and an amazing artist, Lester Jay Stone.]
The Breakfast nook. The best part about it is the morning light that pours in the windows. We found the table as-is at a yard sale – our best find yet! We got the chairs there too and painted them.
Our porch. We love to sit in the rockers and play a little chess after a long days work! . . . My office. I love the bead board walls – they were here when we moved in. The green sketchbook is from wyly community art center in basalt, co. I love it! The New Yorker cover really just gets me. I’ve had it up in all the houses (6) i’ve lived in since 2002.
We have this wonderful workshop out back. It is full of tools + bikes + is the home to this little go cart i’m riding. My husband picked it up off craigslist about 1 month after we moved in + now it is a must do activity for all of our friends when they come over!
The painting is from a series I did when I needed a break from the computer screen. It is inspired by screen printing, but painted in acrylic. The photo is from our move cross country from Colorado to Virginia. We were 1/2 way across and had the windows down the entire way…When my husband and I first started dating, I bought him a few little toys to cheer him up one time when he had a cold. I’ve kept collecting them for him over the years. I made the box shelf from an old soda box I found at a yard sale and painted.
