Copy Cat : House Crush

House 2

This is nothing but a little re-posting going on. Is that so wrong? I just like these homes and I want to keep record of them so I can find them quickly. And, of course, imitation is the highest form of flattery. Do you think? Some people don’t. I’ve never been one to mind if someone takes an idea….if they did all the time that would start a case of the “you annoy me’s” but mostly I’ll take it as a compliment. And I suppose it would depend on what they were copying. A pair of shoes, no big deal. An entire outfit, not good. Anyways, all this to say I like, like, like and even love these spaces.

    I definitely borrow ideas from other designers, and love if I can help another designer out of a bind. So often it takes a fresh set of eyes, or a new tidbit from someone else. And, I adore the white subway tiles and the heavenly color palate. Barrow away!

    I adore that first one, too. I actually remember that issue. I never thought grey cabinets would look so good.

    I love the colour scheme in the kitchen in the first house. Very calming and clean looking!

    you are too funny. worth re posting for sure. Both these homes are local. I actually had dinner a couple of houses down from your first home this weekend. I wanted to go knock on the door but alas did not.
