HELLO LOVELY Encouraging Love Quotes & Serene Design Inspiration

For Valentine’s Day (today!), I considered giving you bouquets of fragrant flowers. But allergies. So I changed my mind and decided upon delicious desserts. Because chocolate. But in the end, I chose what you seem to long for when your heart finds its way here…timeless design inspiration, wishes for peace, and encouraging love quotes with inspirational messages.

Encouraging Love Quotes & Serene Design Inspiration

The exquisite kitchen bay moment (above) in a timeless kitchen by Kate Marker Interiors continues to work magic and have its way with me. (And not just because it includes a farm sink and the very same Kohler Parq bridge faucet I chose for my own kitchen!).

Kate Marker’s Grey Oak Project

This glorious home is located in Barrington, IL, on a lovely street familiar to me since our close friends lived on Grove for years. (In fact, I met the designer Kate and chatted with her at a party hosted by mutual friends.)

Kate’s serene white modern farmhouse with limed-wash brick exterior only looks charmingly historic. It was actually built in 2016 and is now on the market, awaiting a lucky new family HERE.
