I enjoyed this so much, Linda.

Unfortunately, J picked up chocolate donuts the other morning and I enjoyed those too!!

Ooooo! My heart went pitter-pat when I saw that room with the grasscloth wallpaper and the chunky linen cushions on the window seat! Help me!!

Also, that giant donut painting reminded me of an awesome painting I saw in a showhouse media room this year. It was a dark chocolate brown background, with a huge single popped kernel of popcorn. I'm thinking I need to reproduce it somehow, because it was beyond cool (and also about $4000...lol)

Janell @ Isabella and Max said...

Cute, don't think I could have it hanging on my wall!! But like it...
and then that console in the next image. Wow.

Oh, the donuts are cute! I have always wanted to do a hallway in family photos! I may do it...someday! ♥

anita said...

love love the donuts!!
what a surprise and amazing how much reaction that sparks sitting amongst such natural and serene objects..and on the wall is the best place for those bad boys!!

Farmgirl Paints said...

I could NOT have that painting in my home. I love luv LOVE donuts. I would drive me straight to the fat farm I'm afraid:) Hugs to you Linda.

Deborah said...

Donuts are not my friend. However, that hallway of pictures most definitely is. I am going right now to put up the other 351 frames in my hall...I was really holding myself back. Thank you for setting me free.

Nikki said...

Those paneled walls make my knees weak.

erin said...

whoa...just LOVE all those red frames!!

The Hot Heads Groupie said...

Great pics and great inspiration! I couldn't have the one with the donut in my home though. Oh my goodness! That would be the death of me!

donna baker said...

Beautiful pics. Only skinny people could live with that donut picture.

katiedid said...

I'm a Gambrel girl for sure....and as I sit here gorging on donuts and tea....I have to say....here is yet another reason we are simpatico.

Stephanie said...

Such wonderful interiors!!

yum yum yum

x..x

Tracy @ ComfortandLuxury said...

Love it. Not sure I could have it in my house though... the subliminal effects could be devastating.
Great Gambrel spaces. Love the daybed and beadboard and pillows and grasscloth... almost as yummy as donuts! (cuz, in my world, there is nothing yummier than donuts)

Carol@TheDesignPages said...

It's funny that I don't even like donuts but absolutely adore the painting. I've seen other paintings where the donuts are stacked which are also adorable.

Renae said...

hehehe, very cute. I like how your mind thinks (I KNOW I have said that before!). I would have seen that and would have thought it odd that someone WANTED doughnuts on their wall. The rest of the decor though....fab!

Laughing at myself because even after reading the title of the post, I still didn't realize those were doughnuts in the painting. I got all the way to the bottom and read your cute comment about chocolate on my face - and still didn't realize they were doughnuts :) Just happened to scroll back up slowly and then saw it. I choose to believe they are boston cream doughnuts. My favorite. xo

Oh, I love the first photo! Think I put on 5 lbs. just "looking" at it!! Love the shell fossils- have one right now on my mantle as a matter of fact!!

He's such a talent!

Melissa @ The Inspired Room said...

I love this designer! What glorious rooms! Love that room with the window seats and the room with the red frames!!! And donuts. I love donuts.

sealaura said...

The Red Umbrella said...

I love them larger than life doughnuts!

Jules said...

That is so neat. I love them all...

Vicki Archer said...

Love a donut.....xv

Barbara said...

That cabinet in the second photo is GORGEOUS. Forget the donuts! :)

As is the hallway with all the framed (no doubt family)photos.

Day Dreaming And Decorating said...

That was so cute I really think I did have a smudge of chocolate on my lip

Jenny at Henrietta's House said...

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the hallway with all of the pictures!!

There's nothing better in the morning that a fresh, glazed donut. The art is great.

simpledaisy said...

Love it!!!!
If you don't eat donuts at least you can have a giant painting of them in your home:) :)

The Summer Kitchen Girls said...

too funny...but not - I'd gain 20lbs in a month with that picture taunting me to go down to the local bakery :)
Love that breakfront - that is a beautiful piece of furniture...then those cushions in the window seat...ya, I'd eat those doughnuts there...!!

MB said...

My pregnant self will take a dozen, please. Krispy Kreme if you've got 'em. There is a K.K.shop at Paddington Station and when my hubby is traveling by train he knows not to come home empty handed. Yummers! Have a great 4th of July by the way:)

Shannon Fricke said...

Ashley and Nate said...

I don't really want donuts... but I am loving that beautiful cushioned window seat! I've always dreamt of having one.... mmmm. :)

Wahzat Gayle said...

I really do love a corridor of pictures.

That painting of donuts is awesome

Kathysue said...

It is definitely not out of the realm of possibility for me to have chocolate on my cheek! (Especially since my emergency stash is in the drawer next to the bed!)
