The Holiday

Imagine a beautiful woman from America, frustrated from the end of a relationship, switches houses and spends two weeks in a dream like home in England. An English charmer, thoroughly British country cottage. Her other half in the switch, the lovely lady from England will reside in a gorgeous and impeccably decorated American home, they have traded homes for a 2 week escape from their lives.
Yes, I have been catching up on my movies. A designer's dream to peak into such wonderfully decorated residences. Loving the painted check floor. Don't you just adore the stone wall surround to the amazing soaking tub?

That is a charming little nook of a bathroom. All that natural light too.
Fantastic
thanks for sharing, Karen.

Thanks for reminding me that I need to order that movie. I read where they constructed the facade for the English cottage. This will have to be a "me time" movie, as my husband is about "chick flicked" out after "Momma Mia"!
LOL, Debra

I love the tub is this bathroom and the stone wall, only something you would find in Europe. The movie was heartwarming, a fun light flick.

Brayton Homestead is a very homely looking place. I love that style of window, they are similar to my windows on my modern house. I like the Paris pics, I have never been to a Paris flee market perhaps I ought to try that one day. The soaking tub looks great.
