House Tour | Brussels Family Home |
Friday, August 30, 2013
Here is another lovely home with child-friendly decor at the heart of it which might be a little more adult-friendly than the last child-centered home I featured this week. This 5-story Brussels home belongs to English designer Justine Glanfield of Cotton and Milk, an adorable line of children's wear. I love the balance in this home, it has sophisticated qualities, like the living room and dining area, but there are so many beautifully designed spaces that represent the smallest member of this lovely family. I adore the color pallets throughout the house, the painted bricks and the large window in the nursery (and we happen to have that same double decker bus on the window sill! now if i only had a window like that to display it in).
Hope you all have a great looong weekend. We have not started school yet, and by we, I mean Fisher. He starts Wednesday. As usual it's going to be a hustle which I was planning/hoping to avoid. But it has become unavoidable because this morning he left at the crack of dawn for Seattle to go to the Pax convention with a few of his friends. This was actually planned before summer even started and then looked like it wasn't going to happen because come to find out they actually had no plan (or those plans changed at some point, I am still not sure which it was). Last week the plan they had was to just take the train up there all unsupervised and such. Hi, I am your mom have you met me? You have? Huh, well then you should probably know that was not ever going to happen in a million years, though I do love your confidence. But, um, no. Luckily they pulled it together last minute and wrangled an adult to go along on their journey, which I am glad for as I know he was really looking forward to going. He won't be back until Sunday and I have a feeling he is going to be very tired. And with that said "hustle" is a nice word to describe what we will be going through in trying to get all ready for school to begin at the last minute. Oh, well I am sure it's all worth it (and of course it's not like i wouldn't have put if off until the last minute anyway).
