I just couldn't help myself.  
I know you've probably seen this gorgeousness a bajillion times, but seriously, it is breathtaking.  I am drawn to it and can't get enough of it.  
So here it is, Emily Ruddo's home (just featured in High Gloss), my 'if only my home looked like this' moment of the month.

I mean seriously, could you just die? 
Oh, and she's beautiful too!
Go check out Emily's blog here
This home and this home make me wanna flush mine down the toilet? Does this ever happen to you?? 
(say yes and make me feel better)
If you need me, I'll be living in her guest room hoping she doesn't call the police.  Tell my family.
PS- I thought this was interesting (both gorgeous)
(living room pre pink pop on the chairs)

(post pink pop)

How about I like both and therefore can never commit? 
One is serene and one is punchy and I love BOTH.
Darn design ADD. 

Don't forget to enter the giveaway from Vintage Skye!
