I am posting this Dutch Colonial home today because it is not only beautifully designed, but also it’s a more reachable dream for most of us. This home show us that we don’t need to have a huge house to make it shine.
Designed by very talented interior designer Robin McCarthy, from Arch Studio, Inc., this Dutch Colonial was inspired by the shingle homes in the Hamptons.
The exterior has specific characteristics of a Dutch Colonial Home with lovely green shingles that work perfectly with the tall redwood trees. What curb-appeal!
Now, if you’re looking for inspiration for your home, this is it! You’ll love the kitchen, the bathroom and not to mention the lovely master bedroom, which has a very summery paint color.
The interiors of this Dutch Colonial feel elegant yet casual. Nothing is too stuffy or too precious, and that’s how most of us like to live. Isn’t it?

Hi!!! It’s honestly great to be back with another post.
The weather was great here and we had a wonderful weekend. Well, just as a write this, I can picture you guys imagining everything perfect around us… just like in the movies and commercials (the parents smiling while the kids run in the yard… add a dog too to complete the happy picture). To be honest, our weekend was wonderful because this is how I choose to see it. Wonderful is not a synonyms of perfect, right? 🙂
Now, let’s welcome this new week thinking positive and welcoming all the GOOD things that will happen to us!
A BIG, BIG hug to all of you!!!
