House Crush

I have a house crush on Chris and Eric Fenmore's ranch in Corona del Mar California, recently featured in Better Homes and Gardens, July 2008. Maybe I'm partial to ranches because I live in one but it's great to see how the 1950's feel washes away when walls are removed and rooms are opened up and connected to the outdoors. Plus, I have a soft spot for dutch doors - notice their yellow one above. As it happens, the Fenmores are landscape designers and owners of Front Porch Creations.

Funny, how we can find room in our hearts to make way for more to love! Especially a house that has such a great fresh vibe! Love to cook in that kitchen.
