I have been thinking about a way to pay it forward to my readers with some great blog posts I want to share. The goal is to make it easy to read and link to them and give you a thumbnail sketch about the content. If you run across any you particularly like, please send to me for the next week. So, here you go! Please give me your feedback! I am a work in progress!

Brave new world House Tour: Apartment Therapy

I stumbled across this redo and just really liked the colors and the feel of the room. The orange makes me swoon, especially when set against the fabulous graystone color on the walls.

PlushPalate: A charming litle place

This is a site that always has incredible photographs. I love little spaces. I guess it is because I live in a little space and am always striving to find the right balance of layers. I love layers in a home. Not clutter, but layers. Especially in cooler months…just like clothing. It is comforting and warm. In the summer months, perhaps you peel away some of the layers for a fresh look. In this post, I really like the way the rooms are pulled together.

Paula Grace’s posts are always informative and she does a fabulous job of educating the reader on design concepts. I love this post because it highlights why it is so important to consider the function and purpose of a room when contemplating the design. Like Paula, I favor round tables in dining rooms so that conversation is facilitated. There are some gorgeous photos here.
