{a refined rustic to call home}

with the virginia house finally under contract and a closing date at the end of april, b and i have officially started our search for our savannah home. day dreaming about a laid back low country lifestyle, we drove over the bridge towards the beaches hoping for an island bungalow that will be donned our Vacation Everyday House. the downside of this plan is that our coastal living itch has certainly taken our budget out of the move-in ready category and into fixer-upper territory (aka money pit! my mother has already promised a copy of that tom hanks blockbuster). but on the upside, a cottage demanding a bit of sweat-equity welcomes a load of creativity and endless possibility. hmmm.


there is a chance we have already stumbled on our future dream home. but im just wondering how much elbow grease it will take to have the interior looking like these photos from my new favorite (and possible domino replacement??) magazine. such a pulled-together yet inviting and casual style, yes? i'm loving the spiral stairs!
