michael penney's new home

When I came across images of Michael Penney's new home, I fell in love.  Everything looks very collected; sophisticated, but not too serious.  In essence, it's perfect in that messy, not-so-perfect way. Then, when I looked at the before and after photos on House&Home, I, well I don't know what's more intense than falling in love, but whatever it is, that's what happened to me.  As I was trying to select pictures to share here, I told myself I would only choose a select few.  I lied.  I think when you check out these before (left side, obviously) and afters you'll understand why.

It's really hard to choose, but if I had to, I thiiiink my favorite vignette would be the one with the piano with the map and the fan coral above the piano.  It feels so bright and makes me feel like I'm on the coast of Maine. And that, my friends, is always a good feeling.  Of course, there's also the hexagonal tile on the kitchen and bathroom floors, that little green cabinet in the bathroom topped with botanical prints, the wallpaper in the master bedroom, oh I could go on and on and on.  It just goes to show you that if a house has good bones and you have a good imagination, the possibilities are endless.
