Hi.

Welcome!  I'm Virginia, I started this blog as an outlet for my obsession of beautiful home design, landscape design, cooking, entertaining and DIY projects.  I hope that you will be inspired to browse my collection of photos and ideas that I have found in magazines, blogs and on-line to help you design or remodel you house, beach house or outdoor living area.  I love finding new interior designers or architects that impress me enough to blog about.  I have been a foodie forever and I love to create menus and entertain.  Also, I love beautiful tablescapes, fabrics, flowers and the list goes on....

A Charming Long Island Cottage


Hey Guys, I came across the charming Long Island Beach cottage and instantly knew my readers would love it!  This Beach house was featured on the blog Bright Bazaar, the authors of the blog, Will Taylor and his husband, Toby Taylor-Willis,  are lifestyle bloggers and live in New York City.  They were searching to buy a house outside of the city to escape to on the weekends.  They found this two bedroom gamble-style house with a lovely yard in the towm of Bellport in New York, but it definitely needed an update.  They redid the floors, opened up rooms and updated the kitchen.  They teamed with the design team at One King's Lane, who helped them create a beautiful design concept, and wow is it magnificent, this house is the right mix of masculinity and charm.  What I love most about this house, is the continuity ofnatural textures and color scheme through out the cottage.  The interior designers added decorative accents in every room, that ties the rooms together, and kind of tells a story.  I think when you add home decor to your home, less is always the best, (I am OCD about clutter) so take your time and pick pieces you love, and that adds something special to a room.
