f a v o r i t e   h o u s e   f r i d a y

It has been a while since I did a fhf. As I type this post my kitchen counters are being demo'd, so I am stuck in my office or the basement doing laundry. Darn.

Argh, the countertop fellow just called me mam. Am I old enough to be a mam? I guess I am. Darn again.

So what do I do for fun? Look up real estate listings and snoop at houses for sale.
You know you do this too.

I found this house for sale in Seattle. A very traditional home, not really a cottage, but I would definitely live there.
Oh hello there, come right in.
Wow, the glossy black door really stands out.
Wouldn't a boxwood wreath be great on this front door? And maybe paint the planters a cherry red?
A brick walkway in the backyard. Lovely.
Flawless.
Ok, now I want to paint my office grey and my desk red. The sea grass wall to wall carpet is an unconventional idea but it really works well here.

I love that there are no window treatments, it really lets the light shine and the nature outside be the artwork.
Hint of orange in the background, it makes me want to see more of the home.
