An intriguing and whimsical housetour

I'm leaving for my big trip tomorrow - 9 weeks in 11 different countries. I'm freaking out a little -feeling just completely overwhelmed. I'm going to try to post as often as possible - depending on our hotel(s) internet situation - as I'm not bringing my laptop- yikes! I'm already suffering from phantom laptop syndrome. I know I should be posting something traveling related - but I'm just a little too scatter-brained to put anything together - so I'm going with a tried and true house tour.

This home is really different from anything else I've seen before. I think for the most part it somehow manages to avoid being over the top though. What do you think? Too quirky for you?



great wall color!







That painting is the only thing I couldn't really live with

I absolutely love that home! The cabinet in the first photo is amazing, do you know the maker?
Enjoy your lovely trip-lucky you.

I think the limited palette is what helps tone the ornate stuff down. Pretty cool. Some is over the top for me, but most works for me.

Have an AMAZING trip!

And yes, besides the weird painting I love that last room. I'm a sucker for storage boxes!

I love any room with solid walls of books.. and the ladder too! These home owners look like very interesting people. I too will be traveling for 3 weeks in Europe. I get heart palpitations at the thought of not having my Laptop to blog with. I'm such a coward.. its coming with me. Cheers

How fantastic that you are off on such a long and varied adventure! You'll have a wonderful time and I am sure that once you check your bags in you won't feel this scattered. Have fun and stay safe!

This house tour is a fantastic marriage of the bizarre/eccentric and the classic. Love the deep blue walls of the dining room, the purpouse built bookshelf/wall and the general sense of space and dimension.
Agree on the painting in the final pic, unless of course it happens to the the husband's mother or similar... :)

Keep us posted on your trip!

The painting is a little odd for sure but the rest of the place is to die for.
Have a fantastic trip...I'm so envious and can't wait to hear all about it on your blog.

That is funny. Phantom Laptop Syndrome.

This home is not too quirky at all. It is very intriguing.

Have fun and I can't wait to see what you post!

I love how the colors of the accents give life to the dark feel of the whole room!
