The Wentworth House Plan by Yankee Barn Homes!

Wentworth House Plan by Yankee Barn Homes

Style! Isn’t this fabulous? I love the pitch of the roof, and the fabulous wide windows! I also think the barn doors that close over the front doors are stunning AND useful! Whether it’s a snowstorm or a hurricane, (or if you’re just out of town) – extra coverage can be very nice! Nice 2 car garage with access via covered walkway.

Adorable Cottage House Plan by Architectural Design!

Adorable Cottage by Architectural Designs

What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you see this house plan? Fairy Tale. That’s what comes to my mind. For a small plan, it’s like something in a movie. So much charm and I absolutely love the lines of the roof – that steep pitch, those windows. Very cool!

Liberty Boathouse by Lake + Land Studio!

Liberty Boathouse by Lake and Land Studio

This boathouse is a dream. It’s part cottage/getaway/house – however you choose to use it – it’s amazing! If living on the water appeals to you (heaven!), and maybe owning a boat sound like fun, you can have it close by. There are two kitchens (unique layout appeals to so many). Check it out!

Craftsbury Cottage House Plan by Yankee Barn Homes!

Craftsbury Cottage by Yankee Barn Homes

I love a cottage style home. This is a great plan that gives you options. Do you want one bedroom or two? Do you prefer to keep a loft space, use it for a studio, an office, workout space, reading room/library or whatever your heart desires? I love the combination of a wonderful front porch and a back screened porch. #bestofbothworlds

East Beach Cottage 143173 by Allison Ramsey Architects

Charm. Oodles of it. I love the front door with the transom, and the wonderful, welcoming front porch. You can see in the 3D Model all sides of this plan. The windows are gorgeous, and it’s a nice clean look. This is a two story plan, with master downstairs.

Darby Cottage House Plan by Moser Design Group!

Darby Cottage Plan (TNH LC 41A) by Moser Design Group

Moser Design Group has fabulous house plans, and the Darby Cottage is no exception. I love, love, love the screened porch on the side of the house. I think it adds so much charm. In addition to charm it’s got some wonderful features like a double fireplace (living room and screened porch). Screened porch with a fireplace! #swoon✨

65 Evergreen Path Garage/Guest Suite by Our Town Plans!

65 Evergreen Path by Our Town Plans

I happen to adore this garage/guest suite plan by Our Town Plans. I chose to use the side view, because I love the amount of sunlight this plan receives from all the windows and I wanted you to see how fabulous it is. These windows, shown above, run alongside the long wall in the (upstairs) main guest suite area as you’ll see in the images below. Another plus: I like that the staircase is out of the weather and private.

Pops of Color & What to Plant?

We were taking our dog for his daily walk around the block (we try to fit in a few) – and I came upon this pretty iris. The purples so dark, the greens so green, and that little splash of yellow in the bloom – stunning. Thinking about plants for our yard – I really want some color, but… our yard is tricky.

Bay Springs Carriage House by Lake & Land Studio!

Bay Springs Carriage House by Lake & Land Studio

Lake and Land Studio – their designs always seem to catch my eye. This studio/garage/work space is no exception. It’s sharp from the exterior – I love how you enter the space via the path to the door. The stairway to the upstairs is inside which is very nice if it’s hot, cold, raining, snowing, etc. What a difference it makes when one of the garage doors is set back a bit. It makes it look sharper and less “garage-ish” to me.

Brickyard Road House Plan by L. Mitchell Ginn & Assoc.!

Brickyard Road House Plan by L. Mitchell Ginn & Assoc.!

Stately. That’s what I think of when I see this house plan. There is a definite “grandness” about it. I love the height of this home, the roof lines, and all the windows letting the space fill with sunlight. I think it was clever to have entry to the garage on the side vs. the front, so the front of the house looks like all house (vs. garage). It also helps to have a curved walkway that leads to the entrance and not a driveway that pulls up to a garage. Read on to see the plan… it’s a beauty!

Bougainvillea in Charleston…

Bougainvillea in Charleston, SC

Such a pretty setting, isn’t it? All the pink blooms, with pops of white (and the cool blue chair) – all set in an English green space. Gorgeous! We stopped in Elizabeth Stuart Design (ESD) a week or two ago, looked around and then took a peek outside at the beautiful plants, furniture, etc. This setting is simply gorgeous! Bougainvillea’s are pretty amazing…

Porches! Who doesn’t love them?

Adaptive Cottage House Plan (SL2075) by Moser Design Group for Southern Living

Adaptive Cottage House Plan (SL2075) by Moser Design Group for Southern Living

This is a new plan by Moser Design Group for Southern Living House Plans. It’s a fabulous plan designed with flexibility in mind. This Adaptive Cottage plan allows you to age in place in style! Aging isn’t something we all want to think about, but if you’re making a major investment in your life, it’s a bonus if it can be a good fit for as long as possible. The front porch of this plan is so nice, and a good size! There is also a back screened porch, located off the kitchen, which I love! What a nice plan with so many options! It’s one story, so it’s great as you age – also if you need someone to live with you, there is space to make that happen.

Charleston’s abundant camellias!

Camellias in Charleston, SC

Spring in Charleston is literally an explosion of color. The stunning array of bright colors and scents wafting through the air are absolutely magical. This is my very favorite part about spring. The bees look happy, the birds are very busy and I’m watching the larger birds swoop from branch to branch. #itsajungleoutthere

The Castle Combe House Plan by Mitchell Ginn & Assoc.

The Castle Combe House Plan by Mitchell Ginn & Assoc.

I love the lines of this house! It reminds me of some of the Tudor style homes in the neighborhood. I love the high pitch, the dormers, the quaint arch around the entrance – this is STUNNING. The mix of board and batten, shingles and stone really makes this house look like it’s been in the neighborhood for a long, long time. The two small windows on either side of the door adds so much charm. #likeafairytale
