The new guest house has a few built in storage areas. They seem so practical and space saving. But I couldn't wait to start arranging a few things to make the place homey.
I want to keep everything light in the main room since it has few windows and tends to be dark. Silver is also great for reflecting light. I got lucky and found the plaster medallions at a local nursery. They are an unusual item for our location in the desert southwest. I was inspired by Brooke Giannetti's book "Patina Farm" and her use of plaster fragments in decorating which you can see much more of by clicking here..
This is all only a start of course. There will be endless tucking in and tweaking to come.
I'm still considering that top shelf, for instance. I'd love to find the right sign or architectural fragment.
A new find has landed here. For now, full of short glass church candles.
A couple of reproduction jars with a French vibe. . . .
A bank of shuttered cupboards underneath. Empty for now.
The long view to the kitchen is to the left. And more built in cupboards and shelves.
The carved door lintel is original, and the old front door has just had a beautiful new finish restored.
There is a great little courtyard just outside that begged for a bistro table. It's a fine spot for birdwatching and greeting the day. This property has no lawn and we plan to play up the Mediterranean style landscaping.

It's so nice that you came by for a look!
Wishing you a terrific new week ahead!
