Time to Simplify

Oh my gosh, it has been a while since I have had an opportunity to add a new post to my blog!

Life has been upside down the past couple of months...someone came along out of the blue and made an offer to purchase our house so we decided to sell and begin the process of building a new, smaller home!  In the meantime, I have been packing, selling on ebay and craigslist and attempting to maintain my local store space at the "House at 755" making my days nonstop!

Having the good fortune of having a husband that is a builder, when we built the home that we currently live in, he was a good enough sport to allow me the opportunity to incorporate all of my wishes and desires into designing my "dream home"!  I am, however, looking forward to simplifying and beginning anew once again!  Before we move I thought I would begin to share with you some pictures of some of my favorite rooms!

Being passionate about the simplicity of white, I love my kitchen!

One feature I hope to duplicate in the next house is my pretty mantle!

The living room, it's always nice having that one room in the house that never gets messed up!

The guest bath...I love the serence spa feeling of this bathroom!

My workroom...I will definitely miss this great studio space!

The view from my workroom!

The soothing sounds of the waterfall!

So here a just a few pictures and I promise to take more pictures before I move in August! 

And, if you live in the area I have a couple of great pieces of furniture that I am selling that just aren't going to fit in the new house!  Here is a wonderful media cabinet armoir that is a fabulous cottage chic accent!

I have this listed on ebay with more pictures so take a  look!  It has gorgeous detailing!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!  Off to do some more packing....ugh!!!
