Blogger Abodes – The Painted House

Blogger Abodes – The Painted House

Sometimes it seems that we spend so much time looking elsewhere for inspiration when in fact, beauty and great design can be found right here in bloggland.
I am constantly amazed by the gorgeous homes I see when visiting other people’s sites.
So  many talented people out there.
Take the ‘cottage’ of Angela and The Painted House.
Not only is her blog filled with fabulous, but so is her part time mountain home. 
Here’s a little look inside.
And here’s a little view from her porch in summer.
I’d quite happily rest in that hot tub, thank you ver much.
In winter.
And speaking of winter, would you like to see this gorgeous home decorated for Christmas?
Are you not just dying right now?
I am so ridiculously impressed with Angela’s cottage.
It’s everything I imagine a retreat should be.
Comfortable, warm, and still ovewhelmingly stylish.
Cottage chic at its best.
And just when you didn’t think it could get better, have a look at this.
Angela also paints.
That gorgeous yellow piece is hers.
I have fallen hard for all of The Painted House’s charms.
I’m sure you will as well.
Thank you to Angela for being so completely inspiring.

    You’re absolutely right. I love checking out the homes of other bloggers as well, full of creative ideas! Most of which are better than magazines because it’s real, and it’s mostly thrifty πŸ™‚

    Great start on this Blog Style.
