Announcing a New Feature

I love looking at the gorgeous homes found in design books, magazines and blogs. But, I also really enjoy seeing how every day people choose to decorate their spaces. Some of the prettiest homes I've visited may never show up on glossy pages at the newstand, so I'm going to show them to you here at Sweet Chaos.

I happen to have several friends who have great style, and I'm going to introduce you to them in a new feature called "Friendly Places." I'm excited to take you into the real homes of real people. Hopefully, you'll find something that inspires you. And, the great thing is that you'll be able to leave comments for the homeowner if you would like more information on things you see.

I thought I'd start out by sharing the home of my very best friend, Courtney. She lives on a beautiful cove in the Pacific Northwest. If anyone should be blogging about design (home, fashion, or otherwise), it's Courtney. I'm so excited to show you some pictures of her gorgeous home.







I hope you enjoyed this little tour of Courtney's home. I can't decide which view is better... inside or out?

I'm looking forward to introducing you to some more "Friendly Places" soon!

  10. It is beautiful. The views are amazing. I would love to stay there for a weekend and read on the deck. I LOVE the design in the baby's room. Where did she find the Cowboy painting? If you don't mind sharing.
