Green “HEATH” tile, white cabinets and sink & a chocolate counter create a crisp, easy feel.

Weathered, metallic cabinet doubles as our liquor cabinet. . . Sewing machine legs are the base for a side mantle in the living room. (Matt Condron painting hangs behind)

gah, the repurposed theater seats, cabinet, and sewing machine legs are breathtaking! what a thoughtful, lovely living space.

Janice

Beautiful home…what is your countertop material?

Ms. Peacock

I like the way the glass cabinets in the kitchen add to the peaceful airiness…the theatre seats are cool too.

bea

love love this peek. great combination of colors and textures—gorgeous kitchen! one of the BEST peeks i have seen!

Elizabeth

In the last picture, there are a bunch of prints hung up by clips. Who made them?
And what is that sketch in the bedrooom?
Also, so jealous of the theater seats!

Angie

The kitchen is perfect. I, too, would love to know what your counter top material is.

Jill

wow, that matt condron painting is making me feel all swoony. fabulous place.

Irene@The Happy Turtle

This is so peaceful. I particularly liked the kitchen and the restrained use of red in the lamps at the living room. Thank you for sharing all the beauty.

DesignerKim

The kitchen is fantastic. Love the green tile.

Laura

Great colors!! Anybody know what color is the Heath tile in the kitchen?

Julie

I loooove that tile in the kitchen! And I love how they took it all the way up to the ceiling instead of just keeping it under the cabinets. Gorgeous.

Jill J.

This sneak peek has given me so many good ideas for my own house! Beautiful.

Uncle Beefy

Grace, I hate to do this to you here but can you let Eve know that I haven’t received the adoption forms. I know she’s dyin’ to take me in as one of her own but if we’re gonna make this happen we need to get the paperwork filed. Y’know?

I just hope she cleans up a bit before I arrive. ;)

LOVE this! Oh so much!

(Hope wedding planning is going along swimmingly!)

Beautiful…
love the sketch in the bedroom, who did it?

I love homes with lots of sunlight and your kitchen is amazing.

I want to chop it up and eat it plain. But, come on, no kid is going to rock that seam between the rug and floor. These shots are a little too perfect, like a backlit image of a fast food hamburger combo.

Tiffany

I’m echoing all the woos over the kitchen. Just gorgeous, and I love the color combinations!

marniepost

Lovely home! I just wonder if people know something I don’t. Can you really have a white rug in your home with kids, and under the dining table, no less? How do you keep something like that clean? I’d really be interested if there is a means of cleaning these effectively.

Adriana Escobar Alvarez Morphy

what a beautiful house. So much light, so soft and gentle as you guys are. Great IDEAS.

Hi, I would love the names of the backsplash tile and the floor tiles in the kitchen. I am about to redo mine and would love to check these out.
Beautiful pad!

I love the blue in the bedroom! And the hanging cards – I think I may borrow the idea to display my collection of postcards :)

The Anthology

Those theatre seat would be absolutely brilliant in a foyer.

Love how they’ve tucked storage underneath them too.

Eve

Thanks for all the great comments! I wanted to answer some of the questions:

1. Heath tile in kitchen is FERN (glossy).

2. Kitchen counter is a material called CaesarStone – very durable and comes in a ton of colors.

3. Painting over my bed is by an artist called Hal McCartor: http://www.mccartor.net

4. Clipped prints are from http://www.idapearle.com/

5. White carpets are really kid friendly – they are Super-cheapo shags from Home Depot. I can bleach the spots right out and have even taken scissors to cut away gum or playdough.

6. And Uncle Beefy, if you don’t mind sharing a bedroom with 2 kids, yes I’ll adopt you!

Megan Zimmerman

Great to see Hal McCartor’s painting in the bedroom. I am his daughter, and it is fun to see where they end up.
