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 Colorful Lakeside Beach House

 

This was a treat to find this irresistible beach house in Canadian House & Home magazine, designed by Sarah Richardson Design.  According to the article  "The young family's colorful beach house reflects their fresh, pastoral take on lakeside living."  This beach pretty house is located on Lake Erie near Port Colborne, Ontario.  As children the owners of this house, spent summers here, and felt this would be a wonderful place to bring their own kids every summer..and we love their story and how the designers Natalie Hodgins and Kate Stuart, of Sarah Richardson Design, transformed this cape-style home into a family summer retreat.

 

We can just imagine the jeep pulling up to this lakeside home for summer break..and the smiles on all.
