a few photos of chez taylor~


I have wanted to do a bit of a home tour for some time now. There are so many things I absolutely love about our home.


There are also many places that I know need something - what that is I am not sure, but they are simply lacking. As our home is always a work in progress, I am okay with that. But I wanted to share the places that speak to me, the places that reflect who we are as a family, or who I am as a girl living in a house full of boys. (that was inserted specifically for my family members, who would surely read this paragraph and shriek - "this is NOT our style - we would vote for new! color! modern!!!".


Alas, being the only girl has its perks...




So let's start outside~






I will do a proper outdoor property tour sometime soon. We have a fabulous property with such incredible potential. We have done so much in the past six years, and have dreams of what we would like to do in the future~


We then have the entry~






The dining area - part of one very large living space on the main floor which includes dining, living, and cooking.







The living room, with some of my collections, and a lot of linen~















~la tour eiffel my handsome husband built for me out of legos




~we have started putting out some of our Halloween decorations




The kitchen is my favorite room in the house!






















The main floor bath~





Our master suite - definitely in need of some TLC...





And the master bath~

Ethereal bliss Kim. I swear one day I'm going to hop in the car head north & land on your doorstep if only to lay on the settee outdoors & chat for a spell.
Hope the Moroccan acorn squash recipe will surface here on the blog too.

Your house is such an inspiration! And I'm so excited someone else has a Gus boxer. We have a Lucy boxer now too...and I don't think I'll ever have another breed of dog. The absolute best I've ever had. I'm so glad I found your blog! You'll have to send me a pic of your Gus-Gus :) Take care, have an amazing weekend!!
