  1. Thanks for the inspiration, brave, maybe,but still glad for the ideas i can take from these examples.

  2. I, like you, hate to see the summer end. I love your blog and Always find inspiration here! Thanks for this post, very inspiring

  3. Those print chairs are really pretty in the top photo, love the colors. Two way fireplaces do not seem as popular as they used to be. We have one between the kitchen and family room. I love having a fire in both rooms (gas).
