Modern House Background, Favorite Grey w/ Yellow Floral Blouse

This post will be all about the background.  My husband was involved in working on the design of this house back before we were married.  At the time he was working for another architect (he has his own firm now since '06).  This house was finally built in 2001.  We are friends with these former clients now, and their wish is to sell this very house and have my husband design a new one for them.  I hope their wish comes true. 

This blouse is one of my favorites.  This was the first piece I ever bought that has yellow in it.  When I first wore this blouse last year, I paired it with my yellow elbow-sleeve cardigan and brown sandals.  This time I was itching to wear my gold pumps, and I knew that gold pumps with a yellow cardi AND with the yellow print in the blouse it would be too much yellow.  I think the cream cardi worked out great.

I wish I had more pics of this house.  It is stunning.

  1. I love the house *and* your outfit. Your blouse is so pretty and soothing. And the bangles are stunning - I must get some similar!

  2. No wonder that blouse is one of your favorites - it's beautiful! I love the color scheme especially with the addition of the gold pumps.
