Wish they all could be California girls …

While I’m channeling the Beach Boys, Bonnie from Going Home to Roost is living the life in sunny California in her charming home that she’s really made her own.  She’s got California decorating style down to a t.

It starts at the colorful door where even Toaster the dog is golden.


That wall of windows has me seeing green for miles – literally.

A bedroom that is truly made for nesting.


Love this pallet headboard in this fun California cottage tour kellyelko.com


But I’m sure this is where Bonnie spends most of her time twin hammocks for her and her hubby (or maybe it’s for the dog)!

Bonnie has some fabulous projects too like what I think would make the perfect Valentine’s Day gifts – plants in a mug with a packet of tea attached and a free printable tag!

So while I’m dreaming of being a California girl, I can visit Bonnie at Going Home to Roost and live vicariously through her.


Wish they all could be California …

  1. So being that old California girl that I am my old eyes played eye spy. I spied yummy avocados in the hanging basket…. and are those grape vines I see off in the distance beyond the hammocks?


  2. Simply gorgeous. Anywhere that has a big ‘ole pup lounging around the entry, you know is going to be fantastic. So bright, airy and fresh… and all those windows with breathtaking views! You’ve got me daydreaming and singing! (It IS nice to be a California girl, btw!) xoxo jules from cali

  3. Such a beautiful home! And with that view, I’d never want to leave. Thanks for sharing Bonnie’s lovely home with us!
