favorite house friday
{on a saturday}

Well it has been pretty rainy this week {too rainy to do my usual walk around the neighborhood and take pictures of my favorite houses} so I scouted out my favorite old house from the comfort of my office, searching the real estate listings.

Look at this beauty for sale in Seattle.
Oh, I love the color of this house, this is the color I want to paint our house. I love how the dark paint color with the white trim makes the architectural features pop.


What at great entry, I would paint it a soft grey-blue, add some sea-grass baskets, hang some home made {from my kids} artwork, striped rug, and change out the Queen Ann table for a  red farmhouse bench with fun pillows.


I wouldn't change a thing with this kitchen, LOVELY! Well, maybe ditch the plant on the corner of the island and have a soft color on the walls, but it is so bright and pretty. Maybe a stripped runner and a bowl of green apples.

If I owned this house my wine refrigerator would also be empty, because I would have drunk all of the wine.


This room needs a large overstuffed white slipcovered sofa, and chairs. An extra large coffee table {maybe in a natural wood} with a jute rug. I like that it doesn't have window treatments. I am not loving the stools at the island, three larger stools would fit the scale of the island better.

Another picture of this fantastic kitchen, beautiful.

It's only $ 1, 275,000! :)
