Anyhoo, in the course of events both of these women have lovely girls-only homes that each shares with a teenage daughter. I see no reason for anyone to be jealous of anything given these two pretty boxes. But I'm a midlife woman in a studio apartment. Shall we?
Eva's home is pretty admirable from what I can see. Comfortable, colorful, simple, light and airy. She and her daughter live comfortably pretty comfortably in this suburban one-level home:
|neat and tidy curb appeal|
|is this house a bungalow? like the architecture/built-ins|
|distinctly feminine accessories|
|maybe the walls could use a little something|
And off the dining room is the kitchen, which can also be accessed directly off the front door:
|glass-front cabinets always impress me|
|front doorway right off the entrance hall|
|love a wooden tabletop|
|this is how i like me morning light: bright but filtered... "cast me gently into morning"|
|pattern on pattern on pattern|
|kinda love the banana leaf headboard, subtly tropic|
And then daughter Ellen's room, an equally eclectic if more youthful space, currently being stripped down in preparation for college. (I didn't realize how much of my stuff I'd want to take until the night before we left. My mom was so pissed.). Based on warmer colors, Ellen's tiny room is anchored by grey and white bedding.
This was part one. We'll get to homes of friend/client, Marianne and also of Eva's best friend, Sarah in upcoming posts.
