I have been hooked on "Hooked on Houses" since Al Gore invented the internet. Well, that's impossible, but it seems that long. It was one of the blogs that had me at hello when I first discovered what I blog was -circa 2007/2008...Something like that.
Anyway, Hooked on Houses has a way of continually sweeping me off my feet, especially when they feature craftsman or bungalow homes since I live in one of those. Well, back in February, my birthday month, while catching up on my blog reading, I saw Sheryl Crow's home featured on Hooked on Houses. Julia mentioned it was featured on Architectural Digest's March 2011 issue, so naturally I ran out and bought it. It was the best birthday present I got. JK husband! Yours was. But you guys get what I mean. It was up there with a fantastic birthday surprise.
So today I want to share with you Sheryl's home...one of my most favorite homes ever ever ever. Hooked on Houses featured it back in February
I rediscovered this house tour on Live Creating Yourself a week or two ago, and realized I had never shared it with you all. Shame on me because honeys, it's delightful.
Here are some of my favorite photos of it.

It may or may not be your thing to have a bar cart. You may think it's a bit too trendy and turn your design nose up at it. Or you may be all about this classic furniture piece and think it will outlast trend mania.
Either way, I was catching up on my blog reading and came across these bar carts by a company called Society Social featured on Effortless Style.
My favorite is the snakeskin...rawr.
Other stuff. I went to the Jeanine Guncheon gallery in Forest Park the other day to just browse. They were closed, but I am dying to go back. Must.Have.That.Tree.Art. Jeanine is not privy to this bit of info just yet, but that baby is meant to come home with me. For serious.
I have a penchant for terracotta pots and anything green.
My husband would disagree, but tell me this rug is not fantastic? I am aggressively rooting for someone who has white walls and some white furnishings to please buy it. Cognac leather stool...a huge fern...or one of those huge fiddle leaf trees ...or both...some rustic milking stools or a narrow weather wood bench...yum.
