William McLure

One day while on Pinterest I was enamored by a photograph that showed up on my page.
I don't know exactly what it was that kept me staring at it, but I found myself enlarging it,
and going over it inch by inch. I happen to spot another photo of the same room from another angel.
This put me into a tail spin. The detective inside of me kicked in and I found more fantastic images.

If you haven't heard of, or haven't been exposed to, allow me to introduce you to
 William McLure

You can see his extraordinary designs and 
original art work  here

A talented designer, and equally talented artiest. 

I look forward to seeing what the future holds for William.

Thanks for stopping by,

Celebrating Style

It feels like it's been a while since I've posted.
I've been working on a few ideas, and this is the start of it.

I'd like to start a summer series celebrating personal style.
It occurred to me that several of my friends have great style, and yet all are
very different from one another.

I'm going to start with a Cape Cod style home that belonged, to my friend
until she recently sold it.

I've pulled all of the photos from the old listing.
You know the feeling of mourning a home that's sold, where so many good times
were had? Then it dawns on you that the new house is going to get a make over too,
and all is right with the world again.

I'm hoping to show her new home later in another post as the work
is being done as I type.

For now, come on in and take the tour. We'll start at the entry. Keep in mind
she did a complete overhaul on this home, and lived here for about 18
years.

As we tour the home
notice the detail in every room. From the exquisite moldings, paneled ceiling,
 lighting, and much more.

She spoke once of adding white silk drapery along the back french doors,
but with the several dogs that live in the house, she decided against it.
Also note that not one rug was used.

View of her living room
 opposite the wall of french doors.

Looking into the
formal dining room. These french doors are at the front of the house, and when opened,
a small blue stone water feature was added.

A nice sitting area off the kitchen for sipping coffee, or wine,
with the dining room off to the right.

opposite view.

 Come on up stairs where it's light and bright.
The ocean painting was purchased at the local antique mall, my
favorite, The Agoura Antique Mall in Agoura Hills.

Entering the master bed room suite, while not large, it lacks for nothing.
Vaulted ceilings, a private patio, and a beautiful built in right behind us.

Could you imaging sitting here with coffee?

Directly below the upper deck, is a covered patio. One of two.

 Below photo is two of two, right off the kitchen sitting area.
Straight ahead is the outdoor fireplace, and a second TV.
Many fun Super Bowl parties took place here.

To the right is a stone BBQ and added counter.

Stepping back we have another view of her pool area.

One of the most charming, welcoming homes I've had the pleasure of
spending time in.
It's hard to say good bye to it, but I keep thinking of her new one.

The detail in this home covers something in every room. Even the kitchen window opens to 
a counter that was added making entertaining that much easier. 
Landscaping lighting, fountains, BBQ, and two out door TV areas.

Every detail true to the beach style is carried throughout the home
 making it constant, and well planned.

More pictures are included in the listing that you might want to
see. Feel free to take a further look at the rest.

Until the next post, have a great Monday,
