If there is anyone in this world that can see the beauty and potential in something...even something that looks like a complete dump...it's my parents. For years, my folks have inspired me in so many ways and pushed me to think differently about things...to see things not as they appear, but how they could be. They truly see the beauty in everything, even the simplest of things.
While in Ca, I snapped a few pictures of my parents' little place and I am beyond thrilled to share them with you!
Welcome to my parents' cozy little cabin in the woods!
In 2005, my folks purchased a major fixer-upper North of Napa Valley. It is nestled over a river and through the woods...literally. They poured their heart and soul into this cinderblock, cold, mess of a place and transformed it into a precious stone and knotty-pine cabin that is fit for a storybook.
And, here it is now!
This is the big shocker for me...
Instead of tearing it down, they beautified it!
Napa-Lake Stone Cottage is a wonderful getaway for all of us!
We love visiting them in their almost micro-cabin!
Every inch is decorated with beautiful collected pieces.
Can you see where I get my love for antlers ???
The white cabinetry brightens the space up and the double chandeliers add major charm. The baskets under the counter help with what little storage their cabin has. My folks have really made use of every inch in their home.
It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a warm coffee.
Not only is my parents' cabin undeniably gorgeous, but they are the greatest hosts. The combination of the two always makes for a wonderful time for me and the rest of our family. It is hard to not fall asleep in the chair or in their hammock while listening to the breeze rustle the pine needles above.
They have packed so much character, charm, and elegance into their little place in the wilderness. They sure are amazingly talented!
Whether you live in a trailer or a mansion, a cinderblock home or a tract home, with some hard work and imagination your place can become gorgeous and unique. My parents teeny home is perfect proof of that! Go, be encouraged, and beautify your home and bless all those who enter in.
Thank you so much for coming on this tour with me!
