ROOMS WITH A CHECKERED FLOOR

I have always loved the look of floors with a checkered pattern.
Here are some pictures showing some that I think look really great.

I'm not sure if this is a front or back entry (due to the dog food bowls) but
 either way it's very inviting.

Here's a large scale version that showcases the hardwood floors as
 well as the checkered pattern.

You know I love this blue and white floor.

I like how the flooring in this entry/hallway area separates it
 from the rest of the room.

Classis black and white.

So pretty.

A checkered pattern can be achieved with paint or stain - beautiful
 tone on tone pattern on this hardwood floor.

This kitchen has an unexpected color combination on the floor ~
so cheerful ~ wouldn't it just make you smile?  

Gray and white ~ what's not to love in this Scandinavian style space? 

Here is another gray and white floor but this one is very subtle.
Doesn't it look beautiful with the marble countertops?

Whether big scale or small, formal or casual, a floor with a checkered pattern
can be really beautiful and add that something special to a room.

Have you ever had a checkered floor or would you like to?

Thanks A Bunch For Visiting!

  8. They are all so charming. I love the last three, a bit more neutral. I would love to have painted wood floors in my kitchen. I'd have to get wood first though - they're vinyl now - yuck!

  9. I love checkered floors too, but all our floors are wood, and Mr. C would never let me paint them. They have such a charming look to them, and I absolutely love the blue and white one. I think it's the first time I've seen one in blue?

A HOUSE ON A LAKE

Many of us dream of having a beach house but when you don't live anywhere near the ocean, a house on a lake might be a more realistic possibility. Lake houses or cabins tend to be a little more rustic and cozy, I think, and there's something to be said for being surrounded by tall trees, the sounds of nature, and possibly a few critters. Here are a few lake houses I found on Houzz.   Some small, some bigger, some more rustic than others. Take a look and let me know what you think.

Home For The Holidays ~ Entry, Family Room and Kitchen

I have always loved the phrase "Home for the Holidays". Even though we are taking a short trip right before Christmas, we will be back in time to enjoy Christmas at home.

Of course, home can be wherever the people I love will be.
That's the most important thing and the most necessary ingredient.





But I don't mind if it also includes a cute little reindeer.





And a decorated mantel.





A Christmas tree, of course.



Pretty packages.






And a cozy kitchen with little bits of Christmas sprinkled around.







Christmas also includes our cute kitty with visions of sugarplums dancing
in his little head . . . or kitty treats, whichever.


Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.
I know there are so many beautiful homes to visit right now.

Hope your Christmas is Merry and Bright!

Farmhouse Style In My Kitchen

Wow! Farmhouse style has really taken off, hasn't it? I love it just as much as many of you out there. One of the great things about it is that it's fairly easy to add  to your decor and it can be relatively inexpensive too.
Here are a few recent finds for my kitchen that I think give it a little more of that farmhouse feeling. 

Now this one is pretty obvious considering it has the word "FARM" right on it  : ) This came from a little shop I went to while we were on vacation  and it really inspired me to add a few more farmhouse style accessories.


I have admired these vintage scales forever and I finally found one on Ebay  that I thought would look great in my kitchen and was also a reasonable price. Boy, some of them are really pricey!



Any good farmhouse has to have a rooster, right? A quick little project I did was add blue grain sack stripes to this white wooden rooster. I think he is pretty proud of them!


Of course mason jars and pretty little flowers bring on th…
