Our friends Ted & Penny have, in my not so humble opinion, one of the nicest homes in our lake community. For starters, it’s right on the lake, so even if the inside looked like it belonged on TLC’s ‘Buried Alive’, it would still be a keeper, but Penny’s innate ability to put together furnishings and patterns takes their home to a place worthy of…well, worthy of blogging about!
Don’t you just love the high, white beamed ceilings? It really opens up the space and makes it feel light, bright and airy.
Not everyone has the confidence to mix patterns like this, but Penny does and she does it with style. The toile and floral rugs go nicely together and create such a cozy, sophisticated feel to the space.
Sometimes it’s best to just leave wood furniture as is. This antique dresser has such a lovely patina, it would be a shame to cover it up.
Penny has created some pretty nature inspired vignettes throughout her home.
Penny loved owls and chippy paint before they were so popular.
How cute is this?
Avid gardeners, Ted & Penny created a sun room where they display beautiful plants.
A self-professed ‘plate junkie’, Penny always has beautiful tablescapes at her dinner parties.
As much as I love the inside, it’s the outside that has me drooling.
In a few weeks their garden will be alive with color, but a few weeks ago the daffodils were in bloom and I snapped a couple of pictures.
I’ve noticed many people are either lake people or ocean people, but I’m both. I’ll take either one tyvm. What about you?
