Our new home (after Thanksgiving) has three bedrooms, two baths, open beam ceilings, a working fireplace, hardwoods floors, a small sun room and french doors leading to a deck off the back. The posts on the right allow for a hammock. I will fence in the rear and side yard to secure a lovely, tree canopied area for the Labbies. Commute time is twenty minutes.
I have already created a Bella Rustica Seaside Cottage decorating notebook. This move allows me the perfect excuse to expand my style further to incorporate more linens and burlap than cottons and velvet. I've purchased several jute rugs and will experiment with more painted items incorporated with the natural woods I tend to prefer. I am having several items slipcovered and embellished with my own designs used on my pillows - Italian phrases and images.
