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....

Donna Elle, ASID Allied Member, is an award-winning interior designer who specializes in renovations, new construction, and resort services. Based in her home of Nantucket and Barnstable Village, Donna has completed projects on her home island as well as Cape Cod, Greater Boston, and Florida and her work has been featured in Boston Home & Garden, Cape Cod & Islands Home, and Nantucket Today.

There’s a flow to the architecture, lines and palette of this home, as well as character, which is then translated in the third dimension. “Everything about this house is the homeowner,” says Elle. She’s gracious and proper and always has room for one more. Which is, of course, expressly the point.
