Grace is not an old fashioned notion...

I had so much fun on my latest house tour for Houzz.com.  I met with the Pennock Family of New Bridge, Oregon and enjoyed touring their beautiful craftsman. Its a multigenerational home filled to the brim with charm reminiscent of a bygone era.  Grace and graciousness are the words that came to mind as Deanna and I talked about her humble, beautiful, practical home.  I wanted to share with you some of my favorite photos from the shoot that did not make it into the article.  Of course you can see the whole house HERE










Emerald and Blue

I think the most serene and oceanic color pairing I see these days is emerald green and blue - any shade of blue seems to work.  Sometimes the colors are really obvious and provide the base for a room, but other times, its merely a whisper of green and blue.  These colors look good on everyone and therefore, around everyone.  I would love to find a green velvet sofa like the one pictured last.  Has anyone seen something like this around?
