{my home...or so I wish!}


I realize that to some...this home is old news. Yes, true. But, the moment I laid eyes on these pictures :: I had found my perfect, ideal home {with maybe some minor changes, but who really cares!}. Katie Lee Joel {cookbook author and of course wife to Billy Joel} has done an amazing job at decorating their home. I see {me} in every picture. In fact, I think her home looks more like me, than mine does! {Does that mean she's better at being "me"?} Hmm. Either way, I couldn't resist revisting these photos that were featured in Domino. If you've already seen this spread of pics, enjoy again; otherwise, for my family :: now you will know exactly what I'm referring to when I say my {dream} home!

well, we are not alike in this regard...I had checked out her spread a few days ago and while very visually appealing, it just doesn't feel very warm and comfy to me...I am still looking for the pics of my perfect home

sister... {GASP!} Not comfy? I think it looks quite comfy. I love the elegant touches that are laced with "old europe". {SIGH} Well, the good thing, my dear, is that we finally found a difference! lol. You're still my fave older sissy!!! :)

This is for sure a fabulous space!! It was a great surprise when I opened the magazine and I bookmarked it for forever. Great choice of a dream home Tal!!!!

Oh Naphtali I am seeing broken items everywhere! (with the half dozen kids your planning on having...) Maybe you should have 2 houses. All I know is that we can't even keep our coffee cups on the table for more than a split second. :) And I don't see kids toys sprawled out over the floor... you should probably have that designed in somewhere too. :) Oh Naphtali. :)

I love this! These images are incredible! Can I come and visit if you move in?

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! *does a little dance* Your blog is amazing, I'm so glad I found you (via YOU)!

Simply Grove - my dear...I'm so glad you are happy with my choice! {Be prepared when I finally save up enough and fly you out for a "visit"...hehe. I don't think I could pull this off without you.}

naphtali said...

Meagy - you are welcome! {cause in my dream...I want a guest house too. hehe.} Plus you'r family - so...that's pretty much a given!

naphtali said...

Lexee - haha. Well, true. Thanks for the shot of reality...but, I have mustered it all up in my "plan". And, yes - the {few minor changes} I mentioned, are more like additions. The kids' will have their share. hehe. And, sophie would be welcome ANY time to stay! {and you guys of course.}

naphtali said...

OMG....I love those long black framed windows in the kitchen. That is me for sure. I love elements of this home, but you know me (I would have to modernize it some...haha). Also, isn't Billy Joel's wife a fantastic cook? Does she have a cook book?

Off the subject, your comment on my blog was simply hilarious. OMG....I was dying lol! WOW

I haven't seen it before, it's supremely chic and elegant. I like the grey accents and uncluttered spaces.

{Willow} :: Katie Lee Joel does have a cookbook. Though I don't own it, I have looked through many of her recipes and used one. Quite good...and actually very healthy. {Especially for being a southern cook!} You can find her book here :: www.katieleejoel.com {called the comfort table}.
