Darling Little Flat: Charming Home Series

Flat - an apartment or suite of rooms on one level. Today I'm happy to show you this darling little flat across the seas, residing in Russia. The designer is Tatiana Ivanova who was a chemist until the right side of her brain took over. Good thing she changed careers because today's home tour is truly charming.

Wisconsin Lake Cabin Home Tour

Mountain Top Home Tour

Last week I was walking the Pacific Crest Trail in the San Bernardino mountains in California. It was just a day before the wildfires blazed across Ventura County and parts of Los Angeles.

The view from a home on the mountain is amazing though. Much like the view from inside today's mountain … [Read more...]
