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....

Waite’s Landing Waterfront Designed by Linda Banks

“Linda Banks is one of those rare talents that knows how design for today with a great respect of traditional proportions. Her designs are timeless and tug at the emotional heart strings that are attached to home.”

—Keith Granet | Granet & Associates, Management Consultants to the Design Industry, NYC/Santa Monica, CA

Talk about curb appeal, I love the pretty natural stone front door stoop, the red door and red lighting fixtures add an inviting touch of color.

Adding a large piece of modern art to a classic style home..creates a stylish edge to a traditional home.

A classically pretty Cape Cod living room.

Don’t you just love the back splash added to this kitchen?

Gingham steels the show… and anyone can design their own gorgeous dining room chairs, and this is so easy to do, be inspired- find a roll of fabric you absolutely love and a staple gun, and renovate an old piece of furniture and give it a new look! If it seems too complicated, find a local upholstering company to assist you in your creative project.

A family friendly family room, a must in any beach house.

I love the detail in this red bathroom vanity.

Sweet view in this Master Bedroom Suite.

Pretty Details..

A beautiful Falmouth afternoon.

Simplicity…Sunday Afternoons
