This year's theme for the Bachman's Spring Ideas House ,"Aegean Oasis", was a fresh breath of ocean air helping to usher in spring during a very grey, stagnant, Midwestern end of winter.
Come on in through the Porch set up for a lovely garden party.
The highlight of the Sunroom is a wooden trough turned into a glass garden.
The amazing, dizzying wallpaper is Fleurique Ibiza.
Dramatic statuary and shelves create some serious focal points in the Living Room.
Succulents are still in style and look great in these interesting, tiny containers on this vintage bench turned coffeetable.
The vibe is very Zen.
And in the Dining Room?
Who knew ranunculus could look so exotic?
Ironically, the dining room paint color that provides the base for this tropical scene is Hirschfield's 0688 "Cold North".
Pretty details from the Kitchen include this catchall cubby organized with ceramic berry baskets.
Dishtowels held by napkin rings make for a light window dressing.
The headboard in the Girl's Bedroom is made from a bamboo room divider.
The orange night stand is a re-purposed typing table.
This Ideas House featured several stenciled paint patterns throughout the house. Here's one.
The magnetic board is simply salvaged metal.
First up in the Tablescapes Room - The Bright Rio Table.
Followed up by the Watercolor Wedding Table.
And the Spring Succulents Table.
Something's tastefully fishy in the bathroom.
More great stenciling found in the Master Bedroom.
Dark on light.
And light on dark.
Sea-colored glass in every room really makes an impact and carries the Aegan theme throughout the house.
The Reading Room. Cozy!
Back to the porch.
Past some fun, cold-resistant, outdoor container designs.
And home again to the house of beige.
