  1. I love the waterside porch. It would be so wonderful to sit on the porch, listening to the sounds of nature, sipping ice cold tea.

  2. I love the waterside porch and the upstairs balcony. I can visualize myself sitting there, enjoying a good book and a nice glass of wine. How relaxing…
    But I must add that the entire house is incredible! This bedding set would be so awesome in my current bedroom, just to remind me of the "blog cabin" that I did not win! :)

  3. My favorite room would have to be the Master Bedroom. I love nearly every single thing about this room – the color, the furniture, and the bedding is absolutely my style – paisley, 100 percent cotton quilt! This would be my ideal oasis.

  4. My favotire space is the master bedroom because of this bedroom set. I just love the colors and patters. Love Love Love!

    • Master suite does have nice colors in there that's for sure. The bedding is so pretty I wouldn't mind it at all even if I had to change the color in my room to match it.

  5. Every space is so beautiful, but I think one of my favorites is the outdoor space with the firepit and barbeque areas. My husband and I love nature, we could stroll the pier, walk in the sand and have weiner roasts and smores at the firepit with our Grandkids.

  6. I don't know how any one of us can pick only one space. The family room with the fire place, (which also encompasses the dinning area), that looks out over the deck, that looks out over the water. Then there is the media room that is so versatile and it's balcony.
    It would be easier to say which area is my least favorite, but even then I can't think of an area I don't like. I love the entire package.

    • I feel you. Just when I thought to myself that there were too many entry ways to the house, thinking that the master really didn't need that porch; I spotted the Japanese Maple. So I guess I will be spending long hours in that swing during the fall. lol

    • If you didn't need to exit from the bedroom you could remove the stairs, rail it off and make it a private patio that way you could fit another chair or rocker. Maybe even screen it off.

  7. As a new blogger let me say thank you for the opportunity .How lucky am I in the history of blog cabin there were never these golden tidbits of love given away before and I just happen along and "POOF" a chance @ an extraordinary bedroom ensemble! With that said, almost impossible to choose a favorite indoor/outdoor space but for the sake of my bedroom , here goes:
    1) INDOOR: You have placed the coolest door that not only ROCKS but literally ROLLS to welcome all to a media room that has views to infinity, functionality, sleeping space and restored dresser bar
    Think that has to be my favorite by far!
    2) OUTDOOR: I cant imagine a more beautiful space then telling stories and noshing @ the same time by a fire on a cool evening with views to die for so Outdoor kitchen/fire pit
    When I live there you will always be LIT!

    • OH, in case, I'm not adhering EXACLY to the rules posted above (can be tricky).Narrowing down to one of my
      The Outdoor: Kitchen/Fireplace ( besides what's mentioned above)
      You can hear the crash of WAVES
      can't think of a better way to "Feel the LOVE"

  8. My favorite space is the complete package. If i narrowed it down, it would have to be the front wrap around porch. Growing up in the city as a child, we lived in a row home which had a front porch. It was as a child, a getaway. Never taking vacations or getaways growing up, this was for us(6 kids). As my sister always says, "less is Best" and how true! A simple porch/ retreat , can be all that is needed to escape!

    • Agree, Les is Best! A porch is an escape!!!!!:)

  9. Waterside porch– Aaahhhh, to be waterside!

    Sandy on August 9, 2013 at 1:40 pm
  10. I love the calm feeling you get from the entire home. The master bedroom and great room are my favorites. Love the colors.
