Action Someday









Man, I wish my real estate search would turn up something like this fabulous place. As long as it had a yard big enough for boys and dogs, I'd be in heaven.

Those white washed bricks, the original timbers and the light from the picture windows are just part of the equation that pushes my buttons.

But despite this home being on the other side of the world, I found a little take home detail that might just get put into action someday. That inexpensive Ikea floor lamp pimped up with a v.cool shade is seriously good.

You do find the most glorious houses. I had to look twice at the floor lamp - it looks great.

I agree. A glorious home!

You'd need more than a big yard bloss. You'd need lots and lots of guest rooms :)

This home is all about the lighting for me -- and that view! What incredible windows to have!

IKEA should make just such a shade.

I love that combination of white with a mid tone wood. That house is crazy gorgeous.

Oh, come on! That's too much: the fireplace, the lighting, that set of drawers (4th images down)... Now there's a space for all kinds of happy. Great share, Jules. x
