friday fun

May 28, 2010

If I had a million dollars or so…Oh this is what I would get. This stunning home tucked in Denver’s posh 7th Ave neighborhood was just listed at $1,085,000. And really it’s a steal.I don’t expect this one to be around for long. So Pretty!

This house sits on one of the most beautiful blocks in Denver. Really this picture does not do it justice.

Umm do you think it's the white kick I'm on? But this would be so gorgeous with some stunning furniture with all the white and the ceilings. Love.

Again let the furniture sing in the light filled dining room

This kitchen isn't fussy. It is well appointed with a European feel.

I love a fireplace in the bedroom.

Again simple all the amenities are there but it's not obnoxiously large or over done

This is the stuff that I love about a historical house. A pretty little staircase that someone clearly renovated but kept that original feeling.

Covered porch. Is there anything wrong with this place? We have the occasional late day shower here in Denver and this lets you stay outside and not having to run for cover.

For some reason I wish I could to it all up in white. I love the look of a crisp white button down, fresh white sheets and white sheers billowing in the wind. White walls, furniture and floors sounds so divine. But then it’s back to reality and I have kids and even worse a husband whose kind of like a black lab sometimes making of mess of the white I do have. I guess my house is as white as I can get it for now. Thank god for bleach!

I had such a terrific weekend toiling in my backyard. I sore and sunburn but I feel as if I have bitten a chunk although a very very small one of the massive project that this summer will hold. Ahh. Hope you had a great weekend too.
