Beach House in the City

I came across this amazing blog recently.  For those of you that appreciate a good design, a great reno, and have an appetite for something out of the box, you need to take a look at Natalie's house from Beach House in the City, located in Calgary, Alberta.  Having this type of house located so close to my own (about 2.5 hours away) just makes me appreciate it that much more.

She went from a kitchen that looked like this:

To a house that looks like this:

I think her house should be a showhome, don't you?

After replacing the flooring a few years back with dark hardwood and it resulting in a disastrous mess after a few years of wear, she decided to take a risk and PAINT her floors. Doesn't it look STUNNING?  It looks exactly like a Beach House in the City...for more pictures, visit Natalie's blog.
