Cottage of the Month – October 2010

This month we're jumping straight into Fall with LuLu's home in Ventura County, CA...

Where is your home located, and how long have you lived there? 

 Ventura County, California, for one year.
What is your favorite decorating style?
  I don't really have one favorite decorating style, but I love using different hues of white.  There are so many different aspects that go into decorating your home,  for example, the seasons changing, your mood, your maturity and how as you grow and change  your home evolves.  That is why we are never done decorating our homes... I love finding those perfect pieces one at a time.
Where do you get your decorating influence from the most?

I find ideas and inspiration from everything I see.
In 5 words or less, your home is?

Our place to REST!
What is your favorite store or flea market to shop at?

I love the Santa Monica Flea Market. I find the most unusual things there.
Share one of your favorite decorating tricks or ideas:

Never settle. I don't buy just to buy. I really have to love what I am purchasing.  I love to shop but, I am very picky on what I bring home.
Your favorite paint color, name and brand:

No particular color, again it depends on my mood. My favorite brand, Farrow and Ball. 
What are your favorite things to collect right now?

White, creamy ironstone.
What is your favorite room in your house, and why?

My kitchen. The heart of the home. I love to cook and be with my family! Cooking is another one of my many passions!
Your next project is: 

 To be announced.
