Welcome to 15 Shutter Latch...how sweet is that?
It was my second visit and this time I came back with a camera.
I wish I could have captured the feeling upon walking into the house. Talk about atmosphere! The designer is Lisa Weekes from Brook House Design on Cape Cod and I loved everything about this place. She used Farrow & Ball's Elephant's Breath in the living room and let's just say that I left here planning to come directly home to RE-paint my white walls! I've been seeing this color referred to a lot lately and now I know what the fuss is all about. It feels like beach stone mixed with driftwood mixed with a dash of sea heather for good measure. Can you feel it now?
Check out the whitewashed wood ceiling. I've never been a big fan of beams and recessed lighting but they sure look good here! I am now and wouldn't change a thing.
All of the soft furnishings in this room have a touch of lavender in them and she used some great vintage pieces. See the bench with the white orchids on it? Yeah, that could have come home with me. I've always preferred this kind of front door too. Just enough glass. Not too much or too little.
Are you ready for a quick glance upstairs now? A restful sunny loft to sit with the latest copies of House Beautiful and Jeanne d'Arc Living while the kiddos are doing their homework!

From the layout to the decor, I love the way this designer used color, contrast and texture to create my perfect dream house!
Thanks Jeff for sharing part of your Father's Day doing something that you know I love to do!
