I am so thankful it’s Friday.  Cannot WAIT to sleep in to eight o’clock tomorrow morning.  Luxury.  Speaking of luxury, here is a lovely way to end your week.  An elegant home filled with beauty and grace.  Just discovered the beautiful work of designer Julie Nightingale.  She’s a Texas native who studied in New York and settled in Connecticut.  Flawless style.  Prepare to drool over the images of this Connecticut home she designed.

She had me at the horse art.


I would vow to lovingly cook all meals for my family if I had this kitchen.  No complaints.  Nope not’a one.


Love the touches of dark in each room which offset all the airy whites.


A home office with thought for symmetry, storage and natural light.


Pocket door from master bath to a customized closet?  No words.


This room deserves two shots.


Let’s not forget the exterior. Comes with an adorable pooch, gorgeous yard, and pool. Pardon me while I drop to the floor and faint.


Ahem, make that two adorable pooches.


Perfect spot for sunset cocktails, book reading, or just hanging outside with your fam.


Yet one more reason I love Connecticut.  Such classic architecture and beauty in the homes.  You can see more of this incredible abode here.

    Wow! That home is stunning. I could easily move right on in and not change a thing. That kitchen is a dream. Alfter I’m done with a luxurious bath in that lovely bathroom I’ll head out and relax in that gorgeous outdoor space. Happy weekend Seleta!

    I would help you up from your fainting spell, but I, too, became dizzy from all the beauty, fell over and landed in the pool, quite happily.

    Wow, my dear, what a Friday inspiration. This may be the best ‘white house lover’s dream home’ you have posted yet! Following the link to the entire shoot was the icing on the wedding cake. …
