I've just been to the most beautiful house on Earth.

I hope she doesn't mind me gushing about her here on my blog but I just went to Jenni Bowlin's house and I have to gush!!! I lived and breathed decorating before my scrapping obsession began so I don't say this often but I could walk right in and live there starting tonight. It is absolutely one of the most beautiful homes I've ever been in. She has such a way with everything. There are just little touches everywhere that make it all perfect. It's very soothing and elegant and even understated. Not really what I expected because I know she loves everything vintage. Maybe I was expecting it to look like an antique store - I don't know what I expected - but it is just so elegant! The colors killed me. That was probably my favorite part. Color is important to me. Her scrapbook room rocked of course. It looked like I thought it did because I've seen pictures but my favorite room was the dining room and living room! They are just so divinely elegant. I kept saying "where'd you get this? where'd you get that?" It was places I shop. I said, "you get more good stuff at places I go!!!" I told her she was getting all the good stuff before I got there. ha! I have to say...she has the best taste of anyone I know! (Sorry everyone else. ha!) Next time - I'm taking my camera.....

The color that blew me away was the dining room and it was kind of like a robin's egg blue. She had all her Christmas decorations in silver. To die for. TO DIE FOR!

LOL.

Whatever Jenni...your house is straight out of a potterybarn catalog!!! It is so freaking wonderful!! I love her scrap room and her KITCHEN!!!!
I forgot to ask you Tracie what you thought of it, although I already knew the answer!! :o)

Sherri - that is so funny because of course I loved her scrap room but I didn't even really notice the kitchen. I kept staring at the dining room and great room! I don't cook so that's probably why I don't care about a kitchen. You, on the other hand, are Miss Cook Extraordinare.
