colorful house envy...

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you had a cozy, relaxing weekend. We had our first snowstorm of the year in Cleveland, and it hit us pretty hard. Apparently winter is here! The snow couldn't keep us from our annual tradition of attending the Fabulous Food Show at the IX Center, which is always an a-ma-zing time. Food trucks and craft beer galore, plus Michael Symon and Tyler Florence sightings make for a great day!

Have you ever stumbled onto an image that perfectly represents all of your favorite things? Well, I did. Mid-century clean lines + pops of turquoise, yellow and pink + white walls = my favorite style of interior design. I would move in immediately if this house was for sale, and wasn't in Australia (minor detail).

The homeowners, Madeleine and Jeremy Grummet, are a stylist and surgeon, respectively. Their home was built in 1956 and while they respect the structure and integrity of the house, they've managed to make small renovations (paint, mainly) go a long way.

I absolutely LOVE their eclectic style and the liberal use of color. It looks like such a fun, welcoming house to come home to. The owners had a custom made neon sign made to go above their piano. If that doesn't scream "my house is so cool!", I don't know what does.

The built-in bookcases (and color coordination of their books) are a classic feature of a mid-century home, and boast such character.

While the rest of the home is cheerful and colorful, the master bedroom and the gorgeous outdoor space offer a quiet, calm retreat. More photos can be found here.

What about you - would you love to live in a home like this?
