All the Shingle Ladies {Volume 1}

We're gearing up for our Summer trip home to visit my family in CT! The kids are looking forward to spending a few weeks along the CT Shoreline and being at the BEACH! My New England roots run deep...and that means that I get all giddy about long sunny days, evening walks down Main Street with ice cream cones, Long Island Sound breezes, blue hydrangea and SHINGLE STYLE HOUSES.
All Summer long, I'll be sharing posts about Shingle Style Architecture and Design, and the way to achieve this look even if you can't go through an exterior renovation.
AND I'll be sharing Posts, Tours and Videos of CT Shingle Style Homes
during our time in CT in July.
