  1. I love how large and filled with light your entrance hallway is. Mine is tiny and dark dark dark :(

    I love how you kept the Ikea plant in its original clay pot. They add such a great organic element. No one around my house gets that!

  2. we actually bought that clay pot specifically for another plant that used to sit on the console...it was a gorgeous topiary, but the plant was always half dried out (and dropped leaves every where)...it needed more maintenance than I seemed to be able to provide!!

    I love clay pots!!! they are seriously under rated...especially when they take on a weathered look!

  3. Wow - it looks amazing! I have questions/comments!

    1. Love the photo/art by your front door! Artist?

    2. I LOVE the photo in your dining room of that gorgeous woman. Artist? (It reminds me of a photo that Ewanika had in ther window when they had their store on College Street.Random, I know...)

    3. I love how you've scattered your milk glass everywhere. Looks lovely!

    4. Are those tea figurines on your office shelf? My grandmother used to collect those and send them to me. I must have 40 or 50 of them.

  9. Photography course sounds like fun! A tripod would solve all your shaky camera problems! My husband yells at me when I don't use one.

  11. Shannon, your home is so beautiful and light and airy and perfect and lived-in and...when can I come visit? I love your kitchen. Mine totally sucks, that's why I never show it. And I'm drooling over your Moooi light. That's all. Fantastic home tour!
