Yes, Seattle's a long ways away from Pittsburgh, but let me explain the worm hole that led me to this gem! As I was googling images for kitchen door curtain inspiration, I came across this girl's blog: The Modern Cottage. Scrolling through on my iphone I was really intrigued. She's like my twin on the opposite side of the states- at least I'm going to allow myself the honor of this title, she's where I'd love to be in say, seven years from now- similar back stories to opening a store and repainting furniture, etc. And as I glanced through more of her blog, I saw she does real estate posts, too! I was so excited by this house she posted and by finding this gem of a blog that I just had to share it with you today (even though it is on the other side of the country). I think you'll love it, too!

There you have it. What do you think? Thanks for the inspiration, MCC.
|Ever since owning my own Craftsman style house, I'm kind of obsessed with them.|
|This looks like a magazine, doesn't it?|
|This could be a Pittsburgh house, really. Just paint those panels white, slap some calm, flat grey paint above, and echo that monochromatic color scheme by painting your antique table in a high gloss grey.|
|What a neat den. Those cherry-red hounds-tooth chairs are AWESOME. And did you notice the books on the shelf are color-coordinated?|
|Marble counter tops, brass pulls, glass doors, and a farm sink. My dream kitchen.|
|Again, is this a magazine, or a real house? I'm not so sure.|
|Look at that painted dresser!|
|What a fun rug!|
