Country Living House of the Year

Emily Henderson is a designer, TV Host, and super fun blogger. I check out her blog as often as I can because she just makes me smile. Her style is typically much more modern than mine. However, she’s such a happy soul that I totally want to be her friend. And I would definitely let her redecorate my house for me if she wanted to.

Anyways, she was picked to do the Country Living magazine’s House of the Year. It’s a remodel, and I feel like it’s exactly the way I would decorate a beach house if I had one.

Anyone notice the metal red bar stools? Um, I did. Such a happy space! Can’t wait to see the full spread when the issue comes out in September!

 

Blogger Home Tour: Alaina Kaczmarski from The Everygirl

How precious is Mr. Jonah??? I can’t wait to meet him! And his nursery is just fabulous. So glad Jill shared that with everyone yesterday. Kudos to that momma for still blogging while on maternity leave! We’re grateful to you lady because we love your stuff.

Have you been to the blog The Everygirl? If not, it’s definitely worth a read. Jill told me about it last year when we were talking about blogs that inspire us, and I visit it often now. It’s a lifestyle blog that speaks to pretty much every kind of woman, especially career-oriented women who love fashion, beautiful interiors, and hearing other strong women’s stories. Alaina Kaczmarski is a writer for The Everygirl, and she also has her own fabulous blog, called Live Creating Yourself. How she keeps up with all of this, I do not know. But I’m glad she does.

I adore her home tour and thought you all would too!

Her family room is right up my alley with all the greys, whites, and worn wood.
