Style Me Pretty Living: The Home of Christine Dovey

Hello there and happy day to you. Today I'm bringing you a romantic & fashionable home tour.

This beautiful and charming home belongs to designer & blogger Christine Dovey. She has a true knack for mixing high & low priced finds, with vintage and modern details. A skill we can all appreciate. Most of her walls are white, giving the perfect backdrop for the small doses of pink, black, and gold you'll find in each room. Christine paints too, and her artwork is displayed in all the rooms, along with other bold & fashionable pieces. Can I move in?

You can find room details and hundreds of photos from her home over at Style Me Pretty Living.

I hope you feel inspired by her gorgeous home. Enjoy!

Domino: At Home with Emily Henderson

Seeing the Domino email titled "Emily Henderson's Amazing Home Reveal" pop up this Friday morning was a little treat, well BIG TREAT! I knew she had recently bought a new home in Los Angeles because I follow her on Instagram here. Her and her hubby have been fixing it up over the last six months and I've loved each picture she's snapped along the way. She's been great about sharing sneak peeks of her happy and bright home, but nothing compares to seeing the big picture like this post. I adore the fact that she incorporates an element of "weird" in all her spaces. She is all about conversation starters and that makes her one fabulous designer in my opinion.

Oh, and did you know that fabulous Target has snagged her up to be their Home Style Expert? Smart move Target!

Enjoy this amazing home tour & happy Friday to you! Go to Domino to see product links and read the full story here.

Craving Simplicity

Do you ever wonder what your home would look like if you got rid of everything you do not ADORE? I do, and I'm getting the urge to start a pile of keep, donate, and sale. I've done it before and it could happen again very soon. This beautiful home by Clare Cousins has me inspired to start re-doing & de-cluttering my spaces. See more of this refreshing home here.

A Guehne-Made Custom Built Library in Leavenworth, Kansas

Hello dear Guehne-Made readers! Today I'm sharing photos from a recent Guehne-Made project. It's a custom built library in a Leavenworth, Kansas home. The homeowners contacted us for a quote on some built-in bookcases, and then the project grew into a library with a murphy bed hidden behind the bookcases. The homeowners are the absolute sweetest family and clearly they LOVE to read. I'm pretty sure they already have enough books to fill this entire library, and if not, they will not have a problem adding to their collection. They are avid book readers and now they have the perfect place to sit-back, relax, and cuddle up with a favorite book.

The homeowner, Mr. D, partnered with Nick to bring his dream library to life. Nick spent weeks designing the space, submitting it for approval, and making revisions to ensure the space was exactly what the family had in mind. Mr. D (and me) were blown away by Nick's ability to measure the space just once and then bring this beauty to life. Nick's attention to detail and craftsmanship are rare skills to find this day. With each new project it makes my heart happy to see how much the homeowners appreciate having a piece of his art in their home.

The room BEFORE the library was built.

The murphy bed is tucked away in this wall.

I cannot help but think about this Charlie Chaplin film when I see the murphy bed.

And here are all the beautiful AFTER photos.

The murphy bed is hidden behind the below bookcases.
