Bohemian bungalow part one

The backdrop of Bohemian Bliss was held in the beautiful yards of two darling historic bungalows. Today we will be viewing the yellow home of Dan and Kristin Alber.


The house and its grounds are quite lovely. It even has a wee playhouse.

Inside is a profusion of beauty and color. The fireplace is not used in the tradtional sense. A tv makes good use of the firebox hidden behind the shutters.


I absolutely adore the precious pink snail tucked into the lower left shelf of this bookcase.



Isn't this a wonderful little area?




My heart be still. A week later I am still dreaming about this chandelier.




The adorable kitchen was packed with prettiness.



Not an inch of space was wasted.



My pictures aren't the best, but can you see the beauty?




I love when people use every inch of their homes. The original use of this space was probably a formal dining area. It is now the home office.


Built ins and charming vignette's make this area a treasure.

Would you like to take a dip in this glorious tub?


Every inch is frothy fabulousness.


Sweet dreams await here.



I would love to enjoy a cup of tea and a good book in this sweet corner.


This is the children's playroom.


Who am I kidding? I want to play here myself. :)


One of the girl's rooms.




Don't you love the cozy chair in the corner?




On Monday I will take you on a tour of the gray bungalow. Be forewarned, it's for sale.
You still have until the 30th to enter my giveaway 4 posts down.

Oh, Laura! Such cuteness! I'm in heaven. Thanks for the tour. Do you know what color their living room is? I like it better than mine... is it yellow???

Love what they did with the kitchen... very clever use of space in a house that is a dream.

XO,

Sheila :-)

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Oh, and I love the snail, too, and the fact that they used the fireplace for TV receptacle. Neat! I love that kitchen... going back for Round II. Now, that I look at the LR, it looks golden. What color is that??? LOL!

XO,

Sheila :-)

This is a beautiful home and tour. I also love to see how every inch of a home can be used without looking cluttered and overstuffed. The homeowners did a wonderful job with this because it all looks so peaceful, inviting and totally usable.

Great photos.

I want every thing I see!!! The kitchen especially is very inviting.

domestic bliss said...

Hi Laura,
I forgot to tell you in my last comment that the home office also houses our laundry machines (that is what you have to do in these old houses!) The laundry was outside when we first moved in and the room was the sleeping porch. The original house was a 2 bedroom & 1 bathroom. Now it is a 4 bedroom 3 bathroom. We are in the midst of doing a few little things- I will have to send you photos when we are done.
Thanks again!
K
