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....

Osprey Marsh House Tour

Set on a hill overlooking a scenic harbor, this new old house is designed to have the rambling feeling of an antique-its lines are dynamic and the roof line rises and falls with interesting corners and details.  But the plan was conceived to accommodate modern features and amenities, ready to be enjoyed year-round.  A pool terrace invites play and relaxation during sunny summer days,while an interior courtyard wraps around a trio of mature beech trees, creating a sheltered outdoor space for windy days and shoulder seasons.  Inside, contemporary details place the house firmly in this century.
