Dream Spaces Series: Emily A. Clark's in the house




Our guest today is the sweet and wonderful Emily from one of our favorite blogs, Emily A. Clark. She is a mother of 5 and a blogger/designer extraordinaire.  Her inspiration led Bethany and I to be bloggers and we love her style!  Here's Emily!


When Nancy asked if I would blog about my dream space, I thought what a perfect excuse to spend a loooong time browsing Pinterest.  If I could live anywhere else, I would choose somewhere near the beach.  (Oh, and there would be no nasty hurricanes. . .)  I would live in a sweet little bungalow, not too big and not too small, with lots of character:

Can I have this beachhouse?
Better Homes & Gardens


It would be casual, collected, and come with a really good housekeeper.

Want to come inside?  Here’s what the rest of my dream house would look like:

Suzie: Tracery Interiors - Beachy condo with vaulted ceiling, pale gray walls paint color, ...
The living room (via Tracery Interiors)


The kitchen (via Margot Austin)



 Master Bathroom
The master bath (via BH&G)
I’m certain there’s a clawfoot tub on the other side of the room….


white beach bedroom

And, of course there would be a secluded patio for relaxing with friends.

Thanks to Nancy and Bethany for letting me daydream.  If you want to check out what my reality looks like, visit my blog, Emily A. Clark: design.simplified.

Thanks so much Emily! I don't know how you do it everyday, but we love your candidness, your fabulous good taste and how you 'keep it real' in all your posts!

  3. Love all the selections from Emily Clark. Full of charm and style, but liveable. I, too, would not want a huge house. That's why we only have 3 bedrooms.....and one is in our basement.
