My Case for a Second Home

Sometimes, I really think I need two homes...

In the spring and summer, I love bright, light and airy:

But with the cooler months of autumn and winter coming, I lean a little more dark and introspective:

Cool, neutral and serene:

Warm and interesting:

Outdoor entertaining:

Welcome indoors:

All white:


Unfortunately, you can't get all this depth and texture by just using a winter throw on your sofa. Psychologically speaking, it may be that because I live in such a warm (hot) weather climate, Texas, with it's long sunny summers, that I want for cool and simple interiors when it's warm outside. Hmmm...

Well, at any rate, I guess this is one more reason to lean towards a dark green, or some other dark color, for our office. Dark and moody... a great place to curl up and read. Or to surf through blogs. With a hot cup of tea, of course!

Tonight, I'm so excited to be going to the TCU/SMU game! TCU is going to steamroll over the Mustangs, and I can't wait.

Hope you have a great weekend! Any fun planned?

I totally understand that feeling - it's an extension of the normal design A.D.D. I suffer from.

i love the first two and the last one!

i agree about the 2 houses, or a really really really big one :) (but i prefer quaint...ah the difficult decisions we have)

i love SO many different things!

I agree, two homes for everyone! I love that last dark room, one of my all time faves.
