Take a look at this inspiring Belgian farmhouse and you will certainly feel inspired by its timeless exterior design ideas. The front entrance is welcoming and certainly intrigues your curiosity. What lays behind those stunning doors?
Nothing says more to me than the summer look of rattan. Amanda Lindroth always captures the look of the tropics and amazingly enough, works fabulously in our northern climate. It's the look, feel and joy of all seasons!
OLIVE OIL - JOY & BENEFITS
Charcuterie Boards - I love simplicity, and this board highlights each individual delight and makes nibbling easy... and pretty. Something else to think about when preparing grazing accoutrements is dividing the theme. An additional board might just have smoked salmon, crab and caviar.
MOCKTAILS - MADE WITH LOTS OF SPIRIT AND NO ALCHOLOL!
Mocktails are no longer the Shirley Temples of the past. They are sophisticated as any bartender will attest. The mocktails we create are used with alcohol free gin and whiskey with a tea base. Tea has an abundance of flavor without the calories! The party never fizzles!
SUMMER TABLE CENTERPIECES
Lemons and Flowers - centerpieces set in clear glass vases are simple and simply gorgeous! This centerpiece could be for a backyard gathering - a special soiree or a patio wedding. The versatility is endless, the design, magical.
What do you think about white? Curiously, I would love to know! Sometimes, I think I dream in white! Stunning and never over the top! Let me know?

Detail - when your eye received this kitchen as a whole you are enchanted. But it's the detail that is outstanding, different metals, window latches, window architecture, backspash that compliments the door handles! You can't help but image the rest of the home!

Beach Style Bathroom
A luxurious double vanity at the master bath offers an abundance of storage in drawers and cabinet doors as well as mirrored and recessed paneled medicine cabinets above the gray marble countertop.
