Christmas Decorations Spectacular Part IV

Lovely library...

Great little pantry/bar between the family room and a masculine den/office.  Interesting choice of backsplash, don't you think?  It's not tile.  It's leather with wooden cross pieces.  

This kitchen was amazing.  I wish I had taken a panoramic shot.  Remember the beautiful window shot of the kitchen windows yesterday?  

The island (not pictured) had a stunning mahogany top.  I was surprised that they didn't use teak or walnut.    Just look at those hand painted tiles on the backsplash.  Incredible.  This picture doesn't do them justice.  

Different house now.  The urn is actually a small bubbling fountain.  The bay window is the "Mrs." office.  (You saw the "Mr. " in yesterday's post)

This is what I'd call a real "parking court"  I don't see a basketball hoop here, do you?  (Mind you, this is the same house that had the adorable play house in yesterday's post)

Thanks for bearing with me and these poor quality photographs.  I should have presented them to you all of one house at a time.  Oh, well.  I'll just keep you on your toes this way!

Let me know what has inspired you the most.  I hope you are having a wonderful week!  


  1. I just love that tile backsplash. That big lush wreath is fabulous! I need some major help with my decorations this season.

  3. Beautiful!!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. These are fabulous as well.

    As far as what inspired me the most, I'm still moony over that writing desk you showed the other day. Perfection.

  5. Amazing photos! Thank you for sharing.

  6. Oooh, I LOVE a library. I blame Beauty And The Beast. When looking for a house, I was drawn to those hideous wood panneled rooms with built ins because I could just imagine what it could be... Sigh... But, I love my house. Even if it does not come with a library that makes me feel Oh So Grand.

  7. The kitchen from yesterday! How could you ever leave it? :)

  8. I had to go back and read all the posts about this house (were they all the same house?)! It's absolutely gorgeous!

    Thanks for dropping by to see my Advent post. You can find that book on Amazon, but it may be available in a local bookstore, too. Hope you find it!

  9. ooooooooooooooooh the library! I would just live in there - reading, pondering, perhaps sipping the odd malt.... divine!!
