My Dream House This Week: Retro Touches.

Every week, I post pictures of dream homes, because I always run across houses that make me swoon. Lately, though I really, really have the "moving bug". You know, when you are constantly fantasizing about moving into a new house and a new neighborhood. This small house, would be just the kind of place I would like to find. It is designed by Ellen Hanson. It has a lot of retro details, but it doesn't feel like a bad flashback. The vintage touches make up a very fresh look.

This is a great idea for making the most of a hallway...make it an art gallery. Also, if your hallway is wide enough, add an interesting furniture piece. A piece like the one above is perfect for storing linens, toys, or whatever.

I'm loving that kitchen. And yes, small houses rock in many ways.
