home sweet home ... of my friends

i love getting to visit the beautiful homes of my friends! it is amazing how each person's home suits them and their family so well. it is hard to choose which one i love the most. there are aspects of everyone's that i find endearing and special. and i hope to share those unique spaces with you all. so today, i am starting a new series called HOME SWEET HOME ... OF MY FRIENDS! 

the first home i am lucky to feature is my best friend ashley's ... who has fabulous taste and is also the amazing mom of four (including almost three-year-old triplets!) how, oh how, do you keep your home so pretty with all those sticky fingers? for more adventures with this fun crew, check out her blog here.

dining room
i love the incredible piece above the buffet (her grandparents found years ago), the matching art and amazing lamps.

master bedroom
this unique desk was a local antique store find and we hauled this chair home from the wisteria on a recent trip to dallas (along with way too many other things to mention!)

a pair of modern sconces flank the passage into the living room
possibly my personal favorite area in the house. it all just works for me. love the mirror, chest, lamp. and check out the greek key at the bottom of the chest.
boys' bathroom
a quick preview of art in the boys' bathroom. the "other brother" as they say, has a matching one with his initials.
a side note: she is in the process of updating her babies rooms so i decided to wait and feature all the kids' rooms together once they are complete!
living room

can i get credit for this find? too much online shopping for lynlee led to fab fireplace screen for ashley!

i know the hall was my favorite area i said but i'm OBSESSED with this box! i talk about it all the time!!
HUGE and incredible lamp. this new addition makes the living room!
breakfast area
pretty chandelier above table filled with cute little people, lots of applesauce and sippy cups
pretty pillows
you can see the details of ashley's hardwork on her playroom update here
she even sewed these great floor pillows herself (thanks to our recent sewing classes!)
organization is a must. when you have four kids, four and under, a mudroom makes it much easier to get out the door on those crazy mornings!

and for some reason, i really like these two sets of crocs. i even like the boys' closet because i think everything looks cuter (and more organized) in sets of two!

Hi Lynlee,

I'm a longtime lucker on design blogs and have never left a comment - its my first one! Anyway, I stumbled on your blog and your friend Ashley's fireplace screen is EXACTLY what I have been looking for. Do you (or Ashley) remember where it was purchased? Let me know if you can. Thanks so much - really appreciate it!

Cute Blog BTW...
