I'm delighted to share another "real life home" for your viewing pleasure...may I present the home of Amy McGee of San Clemente, California. As I uploaded these gorgeous images of Amy's home today (taken by fab photog friend Elizabeth Harris), all I could think about is how much I wanted to walk through her space in person. The home is incredibly lovely, full of light, thoughtfully furnished, and above all, tranquil. I have a strong inkling you will appreciate this peek into Amy's home as much as I do.
She confidently layers rugs, mixes rustic with contemporary, and pays attention to small details. Amy enjoys shopping at secondhand and antique stores in hopes of finding that perfect accessory to compliment the new, larger pieces of furniture in her space. It turns out we subscribe to the same philosophy of saving up for what we really love, and selling things along the way to speed up the process. Thatta girl!
p.s. this little girl's room shown above is absolute perfection, no? I can't stop staring at it and studying every.single.detail.
Links to previous "real life homes" are included after Amy's home tour below.
For those of you just tuning in, this series showcases living spaces decorated by people who are not formally-trained interior designers; people who mix new finds with antiques and secondhand pieces from Craigslist (or the like). People who have figured out, on their own, what looks and feels good in their living space.
