I plopped into bed last night thrilled to dig into my new issue of Traditional Home Magazine.  The magazine has gone in such a fresh and chic direction.

I was blown away by the article on the Santa Barbara Design House.  The family room + kitchen were designed by none other than Bravo TV’s very own Million Dollar Decorator, Mary McDonald.

I’m really drawn to dark blue these days so the kitchen island caught my eye.  Her use of accessories and the blue leather occasional chairs have a way of making the space feel informal and a bit rustic, just like Santa Barbara itself.

A huge thank you to Traditional Home for sending over the photographs brilliantly taken by Dominique Vorillon.  Visit his website here: http://www.dominiquevorillon.com.
