Smart Home

Have you seen HGTV's latest home giveaway?

It's their "smart home" located just outside Jacksonville, FL.
You know that I consider myself "technologically challenged."
I'm not one to oohhhh and ahhhhh
over all the technology bells and whistles they have.
Me...I go for the aesthetics.
Vain.
I know.
And I'm ok with that.

While it may look kind of plain from the outside...


 once you see the inside
 
I think you'll be saying
 
why hello there...
 
I'm in it to win it too!

Here's a better view of the gallery wall in the entry way



You know whoever hung those pictures has OCD.

Takes one to know one.

Ha!
 
That little doorway you see above leads you to this little alcove...


 
 that houses the powder room...

 
The aquamarine color continues into the family room
 
but with added pops of chartreuse and orange.

 
 
This living area opens right into the dining room.

 
I had to do a double take when I saw this picture
 
but quickly figured out that they hung curtains between these rooms
 
to create the feel of a separate dining room if the mood strikes
 

here's an up close of the table setting

In case you can't tell
 
those are oyster shells in the little urn above.
 
{I saw some little urns at hobby lobby...
 
I think I know what I'll be doing with all the shells
 
we collect next month in Savannah.}
 

On the other side of the dining room is the kitchen
 
I could totally get my cook on in here.
 

 
Right off the kitchen is the laundry room/mud room

 
This bright space could make you like laundry.
 
The little door above opens to storage...

 
and the answer to my dilemma
 
of keeping all the shoes out of the way!
 
I seriously need an area like this in our next house.

Ok, we've entertained, cooked, and cleaned.
 
Let's see where we're going to be sleeping...

 
{digging this mirror}
and of course the framed coral art

The master bath is nothing to sneeze at...

 
it's different -
 
with the bathtub inside the shower area
 
but like I always tell my boys
 
different is good.

 
and a rain shower...yes please.
 
 
In case you were wondering
 
the water closet is directly opposite the shower...
 
 
I'm ready to enter the contest.
 
How about you?
 

Here's where the boys will be sleeping if we win...

 
don't you love this little desk area?

{and the crab art}
They have their own separate bath

and I think they'd be happy here.
 
I'd switch the twin beds for two bunk beds...no problem.

If you want to visit us
 
here's where you'll be ensconced...
 
 
You'd have your privacy with your own bath
 
plus
 
its upstairs right off of a little sitting area.
A total getaway.
 
Now that I think about it
 
maybe
 
THIS should be the master suite?

 
Either way
 
I'm ready to enter to win.
 
You can too...twice a day.
