A Storybook Cottage Home Tour: Carmel-by-the-Sea

Happy Weekend to you! I'm a happy camper today. Got my computer back and the issue was a bad graphics card. So I'm back in business and so happy to be working from my real computer with full size screens instead of my small, travel-size computer. Has it been as gorgeous where you live as it has been here?

(Psst: Press Ctrl + 2-3 times on your keyboard to view the pictures in bigger form and Ctrl 0 (zero) once you're done.)

Prepare to fall in love. You've been warned! ;) This ¬†house proves a 1970's home can be made-over and given lots of cozy, cottage feel.

It has that much old-house charm.   Though different and certainly more modern, it has the same warm, inviting feel of the adorable cottage in the movie, … [Read more...]
