I just had to share another great book. I've had this one for a while, but I saw it on another Blog last week, and I was reminded how much I adore looking through it, and simply had to share.
It's a walk through Mary Engelbreit's "dream home" as she calls it. Talk about inspiration! Every inch, inside and out is full of wonderful touches and details.
The picture of the outside of her home (which isn't as old as it looks!) says it all. Warm, cozy, charming, right out of a storybook. Not only are the photographs inspiring, but it tells the story of how she and her husband Phil came to be the owners of the home, and why they love it so.
The book isn't so much the old Mary Engelbreit decor look, with busy bright prints and cherries everywhere (although her signature cherries can be found sprinkled in throughout the home, but oh so subtlety- like on the shutters on the home )
This is the kind of book that motivates me to spruce up every nook and cranny, and long for it to be long enough past snow season to be planting oodles and toodles of flowers in pots for every window and porch corner. Aah, perfect reading for an early Tuesday morning with my cuppa cocoa.
