As usual, this house has been on my to-blog-about list ever since it hit the newsstands in March.
Well, this picture just about sums it up...
As you know, I've always been obsessed with cozy outdoor spaces, but that obsession has grown even more since we bought our lake house last year.
There's a whole lot of blue & white beach house inspiration out there (which I blogged about here) but I'm always happy to see something a bit more unexpected.
This subject deserves an entirely separate post, but I'm crushing on contrast cushions these days. This velvet and plaid sofa makes my heart sing....although I'd probably have a meltdown if someone sat on a velvet sofa in a wet bathing suit.
...would also freak if a wet houseguest sat on a leather sofa...which is why we have an Ikea slipcovered number.
These twin beds are so sweet. They remind me of beds my brother and I would have had as kids.
Ok actually none of these sofas would be allowed in our lake house....but a girl can dream.
Ok, ok. I admit this house should fall more under "inspiration" than "lake house inspiration."
And if our house isn't exactly decorated to this wool-and-leather-and-velvet-sofa perfection, we do have one thing in common.
Can you guess what it is?
Betcha didn't guess that.
We have no idea where he came from, but he's made himself at home.
