My favorite story is the Havens Idea Cottage (12 rooms, hundreds of ideas pg 35 -48) I could see my family living in this house! The mixing of modern pieces thrilled me-it was not what I expected and you got to love that! It is an eco-friendly community of 13 houses being built in I’ On, South Carolina. I want to move there now! I loved the tile (Nottingham Honeycomb ceramic tile by Ann Sacks) used in the kitchen, they ran it up the entire wall, talk about impact!
I also fell in love with the courtyard; can’t you see yourself lounging out there all day and night? I love outdoor décor-us southern Californians are lucky to be able to extend our living space to our back yards. This photo is a great inspiration. I may change the table’s chairs to Eames chairs but other than that I am sold on this!

I love the fall. I think it is by far my favorite season. The air gets a chill to it, the days are shorter and there is this sense of new, of change for me that resonates deep. I love the holidays that come at this time of year. Halloween being one of my favorite. Not for the "darkness of Halloween"or "scary" decorations but for the one night that my neighbors are out in full force, this one holiday that brings community to a community. Which brings me to this article from Coastal Living Magazine. It's a great story how one mom created this shared experience among her neighbors called "Spirited Beach Bash for Halloween." Read it I know you will love it!
