our final sneak peek of the day comes from children’s book author and illustrator charise harper can’t help but make you smile. it’s a fantastic example of mixing style and fun (check out the ruler stair rail and chalk board art!). she, her husband and their three children moved into their mamaroneck, ny home three years ago and have been working on it ever since. be sure to check out the entire set (with additional images) here, and all of our sneak peeks right here. [thanks, charise!] -anne
[note: charise's sneak peek continues after the jump so click here for the full post and pictures, or just click "read more" below the last picture. there were so many great shots i had a hard time editing them down!]
I like the two blackboards under the self portrait on the stairs. We change the drawings whenever we want, because they are just chalk. Of course her face always stays the same. The artist is from Chicago but I have forgotten her name. The green box on wheels secretly holds some kid toys. We bought it at Pier One and then put the casters on it.
