eye candy {let there be light}

I am head over heels for the dining and living room of this house--it is the perfect balance of rustic and elegant. Not the mention the natural light flowing in just breaths such lovely life into the rooms.

Oh and I cannot forget about the perfectly faded dining room chairs--the stripe down the center of them is just the perfect subtle detail. Hope you all have a lovely evening.

So much prettiness!! The sparkling chandelier over a rough-hewn wood table is pure magic.

Can we please, please, please focus on these gorgeous exposed beams?! On my goodness... if only I could add those to my home. *sigh*

The light and rustic chicness of this lovely room is just stunning. I would love to have a chat on that couch or a meal at this table!
