House Update, California Style

Is anyone else having One Room Challenge™ withdrawal? I don't know about you, but I can't wait until October! I found so many ideas to borrow from the Wednesday, and Thursday groups. But for now, back to my project.....

When I think of what home feels like, my mind goes back to my childhood. I grew up in Southern California, the Valley, to be specific. Our home had wood floors, light colored walls, and lots of windows. I can still remember what the cool brick pavers on our front porch felt like under my bare feet. It felt like Summer.

I definitely had a uniform back then, too. My daily wardrobe consisted of shorts, a t-shirt, and my favorite Vans shoes. About ten years ago, when that shoe became popular at my daughter's school, she asked me how I had heard about Vans? I gave the classic parent answer, "I was wearing them before you were born.....along with the surfers and skateboarders". I wanted to live at the beach.

While reading Jennifer's series, Purposeful Design, I started thinking about the feeling I want this home to have........Summer......California Style.

When I told my architect this was going to be my California beach house, he said that he was helping my neighbor build her Colorado mountain home.

Thank goodness all these styles are welcome in my neighborhood. What style reminds you of Home?

I can't stand the suspense....
