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....

Beach Pretty House Tours:  An Ultimate Fun Lakeside Getaway in North Carolina

Beach Pretty House Tours: An Ultimate Fun Lakeside Getaway in North Carolina

Heather Garrett, of Heather Garrett Interior Design, created the ultimate fun lakeside getaway in North Carolina for this young couple to get away from their busy jobs and have fun!  This beautiful lakeside home is on Lake Gaston in Littleton, North Carolina.  Heather created a floating lounge, with a wet bar, flat-screened TV, a huge hammock, swinging chairs, and a swimming platform.  This outdoor living space is a beautiful vision which sits on Lake Gaston, with floor to ceiling white drapes dancing in the wind.  As the day winds down, everyone unwinds in the over-sized couches and roaring fire burning in the magnificent stone fireplace, sharing stories and reminiscing about your day...new memories have been made...until next time.
