We often talk about owning a house in the mountains. I vacilate between how I would design and decorate it. One part of me wants something very "Chalet Chic" with layers of European antiques, rich textiles and important art. The other side of me, just wants something that allows us to live among the trees, simply ( still with great art ). The former would be host to formal dinners and beautiful Christmas holidays while the latter, a more practical concept, would be perfect for kids playing board games and general family loafing-a place of simplified beauty. After seeing these photos, I think my mind has been made up.

Wow! Sebastopol! I never would have called it. Turnbull, yes, but Sebastopol? I guess I've got to get back up to the Russian River area again of a winter/spring weekend. Thanks, M!

It looks beautiful. I love the windows. I would be fine with no window coverings during the day, but don't like it at night. I have a thing about blinds and curtains being closed when it is dark out and lights are on inside.
