Please join us in congratulating carlota for winning the HomeByMe November Project of the month with her inviting project Fresh! I love this home because it was designed to have people enjoy it from the front porch to the back porch! We should all get together and have a party to help Carlota celebrate. Arriving at the front door, you’ll start to smile and relax as soon as you notice the cheerful flower boxes and comfortable benches ready to welcome any visitor.
Looking in from the top shows how having guests and having a good time are central to the design. When you enter Carlota’s home (yellow arrow), you’re immediately in a vibrant, colorful space with plenty of comfortable seating. You can stay right there or move easily out onto the back porch to find numerous new places to enjoy yourself with your friends.
With the wonderful open design, it’s easy to mingle and share in the fun even if you’ve gone into the kitchen to help out and your friends are still enjoying the living room.
Viewing the overall plan makes it easy to see that the space devoted to entertaining dominates the home.
Looking in from the other side, you can see the bedrooms and bathrooms tucked neatly into one end of the home with generous amounts of space.
In good weather this would seem to be the number one spot to claim! Just imagine a good group of friends, good food and drink and you have all the ingredients for a great time.
The dining room is accessible directly from the kitchen and the porch. With large patio doors on two sides it’s almost like being outside.
Everyone’s favorite room, the kitchen is ready to serve as many people as can crowd in or just one with their own special island of comfort.
Since it’s right off the porch, the master bedroom is wonderfully lighted through the patio doors and two big windows. The necessities are behind the screen and right around the corner.
They may be necessary, but the bath and the lavatory have been thoughtfully sized and decorated.
This is a dream bedroom for a lot of young adults. There’s plenty of room decorated the way you like and everything you need is close by.
What better way is there to continue your visit than by checking out the grill to see what’s cooking? I’m sure it will be delicious. I can’t wait for the next adventure at Carlota’s house!
Now it’s your turn!
