Here's to you Mom

So in honor of Mother's Day I thought that I'd share with all of my readers photos of my mom's beautiful home. I'm doing this to say thank you Mom, you're the best Mom in the world and I really appreciate all you have taught me. While our tastes may differ I have learned so much from you in terms of home decorating, fashion and cooking (among other things, but since those three are what this blog is primarily about they are mentioned here).

In honor of you Mom, here are some of my favorite photos from your house!

This is where it all takes place at my Mom's house. This is the kitchen. I'm not crazy about the table in terms of comfort, but I have to admit it is really pretty. I also love the cabinets.

This is the family room, home to the two most comfortable pieces of furniture ever -- that couch = amazing! It is so comfortable to sit on and watch a movie. The same goes for the leather chair. As you can see, my mom's taste is much more traditional than mine, but as I get older I realize that the differences are mostly in our choice in color, not the style of furniture.

This is the master bedroom. I included a picture of it because it is my favorite room in the house. I love the muted color combination as well as the furniture.

Finally I've included a picture of the dining room. I don't really go in this room all that often, and I don't think I've ever actually eaten in here (I still prefer the kids table in the kitchen at holidays). However, it is a pretty room and one that is not currently a bit disheveled due to some renovations.

I love going to your mom's house. Thanks again for dinner the other night. I wanted more of those red beans and rice the next day.
