ROFL, seriously, I scared the cat.
I like the Sullivan accent chair, in that fabric.
I really wanted to buy a home in a Meritage development close to me. The green features were SO wonderful, but they were not standard--you had to pay more to get them. That would be exciting news for me, a chance to win one. :)
Too modern for me. Farmhouse is antithetical to modern. I don't know why they even bother to throw in the word farmhouse. Maybe I will have an emotional connection to the house that will justify that phrase for me, but at the moment it just feels disingenuous to me....
I enjoy the description modern Victorian, because I know it means they appreciate the charm but want it to function like a new home. Farmhouses were already honest simple homes, so what is there to take out of it to make it "modern," except to delete the coziness and warmth. Anyway, that's what I fear. We'll see.
Love that harbor photo! The framing, the colors, beautiful! Did you take that, Virginia? It's wonderful!
The decorating details are a joy to see, too. Can't wait to see the full reveal! :)
Thank you! Both of these links are a delight. I love CplusE's design ideas. These are images that I will keep refreshing and hope they can stay in my mind forever.
I only wish I had the money to buy some of Rosemary's detailed watercolors. :)
I second that Darn! :) He must have enjoyed your enthusiasm, though. :)
"Densify" is a new word to me. :)
The Smart Homes evolved out of the Green Homes, which always had a smaller footprint to make less of an impact on the environment. For me, 2600 is more than double what I have now, so it sounds spacious to me! The family behind me in the same model house I own consisted of a mom and dad, a grandma, two grade-school children and a babe-in-arms, plus two doberman dogs, two cats and a rooster. Now THAT must have felt crowded! :)
