Susan's home in Romantic Homes magazine!

Check out Susan's house as seen in 
"Romantic Homes" magazine! October 2010 issue.


Here's the cover..


Vintage glass and silverware were used as an image for the "Contents" page..


The spread starts with an image of the back yard and then some shots of the front garden patio.


This horse is the "Big Bad Boy" of the front entry way. We love him! He's a circa 1870 weather vane from New England. Below are antique decoys from the East coast. Following are detail shots of the living room. Susan loves to stack her collection of Navajo rugs.


The pair of old doors adds rich texture and interest to the living room. John Robshaw pillows are seen on the sofa (available at the store.) Drift wood is used all over Susan's house as  sculptures, creating natural, casual beauty. We're all about coastal living.

Here are some detail shots of the family room and kitchen area. Vintage items and antiques mixed with new.       

Susan's bedroom is her sanctuary! Her bed is dressed in Bella Notte, a favorite at the store. www.bluespringshome.com

The Grand kids love to stay over and sleep in this Matteo "Madras" plaid bed.

Susan and Tania were exhausted after the shoot! They did a great job!

Behind the scenes shot

This bed is the Grandaughter's room. It'll be seen in a Spring Romantic Homes issue.

Susan loves to read the paper and enjoy her morning coffee here in the front garden patio. It's completely private.

Formal dining room.
