Decor Inspiration: White Villa in Cali

August 13, 2014

Warm Welcome

I can't help myself.
I need more California in my life.
Yesterday it was the villa in Ojai,
and today it's all Santa Barbara.

The Living Room

Let's enjoy this light bright nest together, k?

That Cali light is rather captivating, oui?

In other news...things are stressful around here.
I have to be extra careful about my health
which means slowing down more than I'd like.

If you have a chance to whisper a prayer,
that would be awesome.

Peace to you right where you are.

  5. Michele, I'm flying prayers in
    on angel wings as I type. Hope
    things are as bright for you, soon,
    as this lovely abode....

    I love how this seems more like
    a cottage and less like a huge
    home. I could SO call a sweet
    space like this my forever home : )

    Take good care my sweet friend.
