An “Absolutely Beautiful” Bungalow by Anna Spiro

spiro8

Congratulations to the lovely and talented, Anna Spiro of Absolutely Beautiful Things for her feature in the May issue of Canadian House and Home! Anna’s blog was one of the first I ever read when I first started getting into the blogging thing. For the past three years, it has been a regular read for me. I am always so inspired by the way that Anna plays with color. Her home is unabashedly feminine and nothing short of spectacular!

{I have loved this bathroom since Anna first posted it on her blog. The tile work is fabulous. It is so charming and has such an English vibe.}

Woah - this home is so me! Mainly because I grab at furniture and decorative accents without really knowing where they'll go - chairs in particular. This inspires me that you can find a place for everything. If it's beautiful, it will be beautiful in your home!

This is beautiful! Too bad my hubby would die if I tried to pink-ify our place, lol. Doesn't hurt to look thought ;)
