Confession: I spy, sometimes.

31 Mar

Yes…I am one of those people that can’t get enough of seeing people’s homes.  My mom and I used to spend hours…days…driving neighborhoods and pointing out the best, most fabulous houses we wanted “someday.”  But, the fact of the matter is, you really don’t know how fabulous a home is until you see the inside.

Unfortunately this habit has resorted to me pulling my poor husband into my schemes of “the house is vacant!  We must go peek in the windows!” and even once, “Let’s hop the fence, NOBODY lives in the house” to which, we got caught and embarrassingly talked our way out of it by proclaiming to the home-owner (with video surveillance on the property) that we were just SO in love with the house we had to see it for ourselves.  Luckily that turned into a private tour.

So…all this is to say…I have a horrible habit of peering into people’s windows at night as my husband drives the car quickly past.  Yes, I am a snoop, a spy, and I might even be pushing the law a bit.  I’m sorry, but how…how…can I possibly resist that peek into the inside of someone’s illuminated house where I’m sure to see amazing architecture, design, & inspiration!?  I can’t.

Needless to say, I have found a few online solutions to curb my intense desire to call up my real-estate agent and beg her to give me a tour of some of the houses on our street.  If I am able to look at the beautiful interiors of enough homes online, I just might be satiated enough to forget about those houses down the street that are calling my name.

Here are pictures of a sculpture artist’s home & studio.  I feel so privileged to be able to see inside this home!  It’s like I’ve been given a VIP pass into the most intimate, private world of this artist, his studio.  *excitement*  This is perfect inspiration for what I want my studio/barn to look like someday!

Hope you just fell in love, like I did, with this charming, adorable, rustic cabin!  Makes you want to give up livin’ the good life with workable plumbing to move out to a little cabin where you appreciate the raw beauty of things.  Fab.
