Coolest Bathroom ever....

Thank you to everyone who visited the shop last week! Yall all made me feel so loved with your support and encouraging words. Stay tuned for new work to become available!


In other news.... do any of you follow the blog Velvet and Linen? Designer Brooke Gianetti and her husband are building a truly STUNNING home called Patina Farm and the pictures she has been posting lately have left me drooling over my computer numerous times and its not even finished yet! The pictures both inspire me and make jealous at the same time. I mean... with a house like this who would needs to go on vacation? like ever?

The entire shower is glass and open in the back... isnt that amazing?! There will be a full hedge wall surrounding the back of the master bathroom for privacy... but you'd still have to have some guts to shower in the open like that. Is a bathroom that gorgeous though, i think I could muster the courage.

The kitchen is equally beautiful. I love the built in details and that stove is unreal. The brass accents are calling my name too.

This is the door to the laundry room.... excuse me, what? Our current laundry "room" is part of the bathroom right now, and it definitely doesn't have a cute farm door like this.

Even the chicken coop is amazing! In my next life can I come back as a chicken that lives at Patina farm? Please?


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.

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

I'm a sucker for a porch swing.
