~I have a crush~

Did anyone catch the Nate Berkus show yesterday?

If you did, you would have seen Lizzie Carney's 1930's bungalow

all decked out in it's flea market and 2ND hand glamour!

Tell me this kitchen is not the most amazing kitchen ever?

Look at that teal fridge!

Yes, I have a crush. cute dress

{cute Nate too! I love me some Nate!}

She turned an unused bedroom in her 1000 square foot home into a closet.
Are you dying right now?
whoa.


She says that almost every item in her home is used~love that!


You can read more about her here, on Country Living.


She is a doll.



A huge fan of charcoal, she has used Benjamin Moore's

Amherst Gray on almost all her walls.


So, what do you think?

I think you have to have some serious talent to be able to take such a mish mash of things and make them look like a million bucks!

Have a fabulous Saturday!
xoxo

What a fantastic lady! It's my dream to have an eye for second-hand items and know how to use them properly.

Have a great weekend

I remember when I originally saw these pics in the magazine. She has an incredible eye! I love the mix of *glam* and vintage. I'd have to be a single girl to have what she has, because the hubby wouldn't go for this look, but oh, how fun it would be! ;)

I just love her style! Everything is just gorgeous!

Karen said...

Sadly I had a previous engagement at the time Nates show aired. Thanks for posting this or I would have missed this great house. I love it.

Destiny said...

I always have trouble mixing and matching styles! I love all sorts of styles, french, country, shabby chic, industrial...on and on...but can NEVER seem to make them all work together...it's the color thing that gets me! Her home is such a great example of finding a clever way to combine all of the things I love! SO CUTE!!! Thanks for sharing...I'll have to look up his show, I forgot all about him for a while!

Brittney said...

that closet is SICK! jealous :)

Anna said...

That article in Country Living was amazing. It inspired me to paint my lower kitchen cabinets a color called "Slate" from Restoration Hardware, which was very similar to what she used. Thanks for sharing this! I have a crush as well!

My Blessed Serendipity Life said...

Saw her on the Nate show too and I am in LOVE with her style. Ooh la la!

Thanks for sharing this--it is so beautiful. I love the bird on top of the frig and the interplay of colors in the kitchen!

Tammy said...

i love her house, who wouldn't want a closet like that.

Amanda said...

Loved it! I always think of sending some of my house pictures to Nate for the House Proud segment UNTIL I saw her house!! Beautiful. I'm thinking of making one of our unused rooms into my own dressing room too. How glamorous!

oldblackcatboo said...

I saw her in Country Living and I adored her home but I missed the Nate Show. I had planned on painting my bedroom in that color until....
I saw your post where you redid your daughters room! Now I'm all about brown! :)

The Devoted Classicist said...

Great color schemes.

Stacey @ Entropified said...

Great images. Thanks for putting them on your blog.

I remember that article in Country Living. Beautiful.

Ok. I have to comment on the song that came on when I clicked over here. I am a HUGE fan of the Ink Spots --and no, I am not 85 years old, but my dad is. We grew up on the Mills Brothers, The Andrew Sisters, and of course, the Ink Spots. I love that!

The grey walls- Love it!!

BearShe Cottage said...

She does have the decorator hand. Thanks for sharing the photos with us.

Patti said...

Her home was featured in one of the home decorating magazines this past summer or fall. I think it was Country Living. Anyway, I LOVE her look. And she is a doll, too. I have GOT to start TIVP'g Nate. I'm going to go do that right.now.

jennifer said...

It was the only Country Living I saved from last year!!! That wine cellar/dining room in the basement.....are you kidding me?!?! I just LOVE seeing creativity and boldness in homes like this.

Claudia said...

Hello,
I watched it too!! It's amazing and beautiful! I love her closet. The Nate Berkus show hadvher on and another beautiful home set in Brooklyn New York which belongs to Lyndsay Caleo and Fitzhugh Karol. Did you see that episode? Just beautiful!
Thank you for sharing.

Don't think we get that show here in Australia. Love the grey, it's perfect. I'll be doing similar colours in my place shortly! Did she have a man in her life? Somehow I couldn't imagine my husband walking through the closet or sleeping in that bedroom! I guess that's sort of the point though, isn't it? It's like a woman's dream space!

Flower Patch Farmgirl said...

I remember her home from the mag. And I am LOVING those green kicks with the gray dress!

coffeencupcakes said...

I love the idea of gray walls but not sure I'm brave enough to do it yet. I think I'll start off with a lighter gray for my next paint project

Lissa said...

it's gorgeous! I could use her help in my living room! Even though her kitchen is completely different than mine I just LOVE it! She has great style!

Kerri said...

I am loving the chandiliers in her kitchen, bedroom and closet! And that closet is amazing! Maybe I can convince my husband that both girls should share a room so I can have a closet like that!

Stephanie Glover said...

I saw her in Country Living as well and love her. I'll have to catch up on my DVR recordings of Nate Berkus now.

Miss Obara said...

crushing on it too! Great taste!

Looking Glass said...

Oh wow! Yes, I'm dying right now! Her home is simply amaaaazing! I wish I had a spare room to turn into a giant wardrobe... sigh...

Love the gray she picked and the kitchen...fabulous!!

alwaysrobinseggblue said...

Ok.......Nate is so flippin cute....the little abode so wonderful. However, my son is a chef and he came over to me one evening and said, "Don't look, but Nate Berkus is sitting over by the window." OMG, don't look, you have got to be kidding me! There he was and he IS even more adorable in person!!(is that possible?)

I missed that show too!

Leah Moss said...

that girl is awesome! I go back to pics of her home for inspiration over and over again.
