Lazy Christmas Afternoon Eye Candy

I took these images from my Pinterest boards, which means they came from someone else, and from someone else before that , and someone else before that, and so on.
Thank goodness we share.....but the downside to so much sharing these days is that the initial creative source so often does not get due credit.

So, to those of you who initially posted these on Pinterest, thank you......

To the designers of these spaces, and to the homeowners, thank you!!

They make my heart sing!! 

Let me know who you are and I will shout your praises from the tree tops!!

 To all of you who took these splendid colorful photographs, let me know and I will also shout your praises from the tree tops!

To all of you who continue to visit and read my blog, in spite of my inconsistency in posting, my random subject matter in the areas of art, design and antiques.....................or whatever moves me at that moment, thank you!! 
I really am flattered that you take the time to read Hill Country House.

I am crazy for the colors, the composition of texture, of form, and scale, and light in these rooms.
They are delicious to me! 

This, from the girl who also loves contemporary, modern  architecture. 

I know, I know....go figure!!

I love the simplicity of this space....

and the busyness of this space....

A Jeffrey Bilhuber designed room, I am sure, but from where, I am not sure. 

I grab them and save them whenever I run across them  (the images, not the rooms...I wish).

 I know this is a room designed by Peter Dunham. I have loved these chairs for many years. Maybe one day I will get to have some!

I think this image, too, came from my Peter Dunham collection of photos. 
 Love his comfortable mix of style and color.

Thanks for stopping by, and I wish you all a happy and healthy 2012!!


  1. I agree about "the colors, the composition of texture, of form, and scale, and light ... the simplicity, the busyness"

    They are delicious to ME, too!

    Bilhuber, I'm familiar with. Dunham, I'm embarrassed to say, I have not "met" yet. I'll fix that TODAY if possible!

  2. I, too, love Pinterest...easy to spend hours browsing all the finds of others.

  3. Very 50's styles...reminds me of growing up....thanks for sharing these...Mel's Designs

  4. Eye candy indeed! Delicious images, all so happy.
    Wishing you a happy 2012!

  5. Such beautiful images Anne, hope you have a great last week of the year! And BTW, I've been having the same issues as your last post, so I understand.

  6. Ah, yes. What fun Pinterest is. The raspberry red door hallway is Sarah Richardson

  7. Thank you ever so much for sharing so we could all enjoy! I am so glad I found your special place here. I will follow on my way out so as I would love to visit again. I hope you will find the time to come visit my place and do the same. Best wishes for some happy holiday time. I look forward to engaging and supporting your blog in the New Year. Cheers SpecialK XoXo

  8. The colors in these images are gorgeous. The entrance with the pink doors and hats is fabulous!! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and wish you all the best in 2012 ~

  9. In my search to find vintage shops near me in Cedar Park, I stumble upon you. Not sure how that happened, but happy it did. Love your style ! Happy New Year, Lisa

  10. I'm drawn to that rose color too. Love those rooms
    Happy New Year

  11. I, too, am drawn to that rose color. Thanks for the pics. Happy New Year, too!!!

  12. Hope you had a lovely Christmas! I love Pinterest too, but it is hard to find credits. Beautiful images though...I think you are a red person?

    Happy New Year!

  13. That first image...the sofa and all of the fabulous pillows!! Gorgeous! So many wonderful Details!

    Wishing You and Yours all the best in 2012!

  14. I also love the simplicity of the farmhouse with the red doors and rustic iron lantern. It's Sarah Richardson's farmhouse, reclaimed in Canada.

  15. Love all the colors, and beautiful accessories in all the photos, but especially the entry/mudroom ( raspberry red doors) from Sarah Richardson's farmhouse. That is a wonderful farmhouse with several rooms of interesting design ideas and tons of color as well !

  16. CLASSIC CASUAL HOME was kind enough to say:

    Lots of great pillows and texture and I love the Peter Dunham tufted banquette. I know what you mean about sourcing...I have lots of beloved photos that I cannot credit so I hesitate to share them. Also, I have seen some of my photos (like my stair case) shown without I guess we can only try to do our best.
    Happy new your taste.

    Thank you so much! I was clumsy enough to accidentally delete on my cell phone this morning!

  17. And a happy and healthy 2012 to you as well! Don't you hate when you can't find the original source? So frustrating!

  18. Love these pictures!!!
    Swooning over the Bilhuber book, The Way Home. Umbrellas in the kitchen?? Yes, please!
    I pin all of Black and Spiro's display windows! Gorgeous.
    Irregular posts are the most genuine, I think.
    Drooling over your chair from your last post. Great photo!!!
    Happy to have found you from All Things Ruffnerian :)

  19. The bench seating is an incredible idea.. eat, then take a nap!

  20. I am crazy for colors, too! :) I just love how it can give life to anything. :) Anyway, I would like to benchmark on that one with the butterflies on the wall when I will be designing my baby's room. :)

  21. I love to see all that colour * I skip back and forth from no colour to crazy colour * I just cant make my mind up

  22. I love every one of these photos AND you are about the third person today that has mentioned Pinterest today... Guess I have to check it out. I'm leery because I don't need another obsession... I'm too busy and I just know it's going to suck me in!

  23. Hello, I'm popping over from Vintage Revivals where someone listed you as their favorite blog. I enjoyed my visit. These rooms make my heart sing too. Nice to "meet" you!

    Warmly, Michelle
