A Passion for Decorating

Suzy's houseMy friend Suzy has moved more times than most people since I’ve known her.  Each house is different in style but shares the same characteristics: warm, cozy, friendly.  What’s more, whenever you go to her house it never looks the same.  As she says, she redecorates when it rains, which can be often, putting the same things in new places or changing accessories with the season.

There is so much to like in this home that it’s hard to pick a favorite space.  No doubt this room would be any little girl’s choice.

Across the room, this settee with its contrasting fabrics adds a touch of whimsy,

I’m just glad my friends have gotten used to me wanting to snap photos of their home or table and allowing me to share their special talents with you.

i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
