Sharon sent us these photos of her three-bedroom townhome in Santa Cruz. Although she missed the Fall Colors Contest, she wanted to show off her abode. She says, I work hard and deal with a lot of stress daily, so when I am finished for the day and get to go home, I want a home that says "welcome, come in and relax, put your feet up" and this home does that for me. . .
. . .Stark, white walls feel very cold and univiting, and while mellow all over tones of beige or tan are soothing they seem blah to me. I wanted a home that was warm, friendly, and inviting. I like the way the two strong colors define different areas, but are used to accent and incorporate each other into a cozy, comfortable home. Everywhere I look I see an area that holds an appeal all on its own. . . I love my house and the color scheme and I always have the "aah, I'm home" feeling here. Thanks, Sharon!
