Sweet Heather's Home

Dear Friends,
  Today we take a tour of Sweet Heather's Home. Heather has a whimsical way of decorating her home with a love for vintage letters/ numbers, clocks, animals, French garden and the sea. She repeats these elements throughout her home with accents of traditional black and white.

In her living room Heather displays her love of of trunks and numbers. Nestled next to a modern leather couch which is fluffed with black and white hounds tooth and number pillows. A large black library cabinet is vignetted with more of her collection. In the bottom of the picture a old chalk ware dog which is an exact replica of her lab.

An antique clock is hung on the back of the cabinet and serves as a back drop for her display. Heather loves this little rusty German Shepard, symbolic of her real Shepard Ace.

A WW2 iron Navy Bulldog sits next to a vintage clock again representing again a family animal.  

On the wall next to the library cabinet Heather displays more clocks and letters in a fun mix. Traditional wing backs were added to the room and sit in front of a large arch window.
A collection of wooden typeset.

A step up from the Living room is the formal dining area. Heather created this subway art as a gift for her husband. It includes all of the streets they have lived on. A long black shelf holds her serving pieces and bar ware.

A locker baskets hold white linen for easy access.
Across another black hutch holds Heather white ware collection and is flanked by black and white original Ansel Adams photos of Yosemite which is a generational camping spot for her family.

In her bedroom Heather has added a more simple feel. French aqua draperies frame a large window, dark simple furniture, a tufted leather headboard all with a punch of brown and white zebra. Her her love for the sea comes into play.
Shells and coral are sprinkles throughout adding texture.
In her bathroom a large antique glass cabinet is filled with coral and starfish. A concrete mermaid competes the feel.

Taking a risk Heather painted her kitchen cabinets and doors black. Her favorite piece in this room is her farm table from Prague. As in the rest of her home a mix of black and white softened by texture with small splashes of color.
On last little doggy to show you. This iron boy sits on her fire place mantle. Too cute.

Hope you enjoyed Heather's home. You still have a few days left to enter the Romancing the Home contest. Good luck.
