Guest Post: Designer Keri Peterson

Happy Monday everyone! Today I am really excited to introduce you to a fantastic designer that I have had the privilege to get to know over the past several months. She has a great eye for interior design and a hilarious sense of humor to go along with it. Enjoy! ---------------------------------------------------- Hey Everybody!

It's Keri Petersen here, hopping over from my design blog kp spaces. I'm an interior designer in Seattle, and pretty much giddy to be here on Sarah's blog because I absolutely adore her work, her blog, and her fresh perspective on design!

Here in Seattle, we have about 363 days of overcast and rain, and about two days of sun the same week everybody goes back to school. Okay, maybe it's not THAT bad. But it sure feels like it sitting on my living room sofa, watching the rain fall and chugging my fifth cup of coffee in attempts to ward off permanent hibernation.

It's about this time every winter that I start fantasizing about the warm weather of spring and summer. The longer days, starry nights, the smell of the ocean and blooming flowers. I dream about lounging on a beautiful wrap-around porch, sipping sweet tea and watching the world go by. So whether you are watching rain, snow, sleet or sun from your window, let's sit a spell and enjoy these magical, wonderful porches.



This chandelier makes an impressive, grandiose statement.

Loving the planked wood floors and ceiling.


Gosh, think about the history of this porch. What was going on here 100 years ago when this was built?
