Reader’s home in Cabo San Lucas

Posted on Sat, 2 Apr 2011 by midcenturyjo

We had so many great readers’ homes in lately that I just had to share on a Saturday. Vikki recently purchased a piece of paradise in Cabo San Lucas and wanted to share with tease Desire to Inspire readers. What a beautiful holiday spot, the endless blue of the Sea of Cortez and a great renovation by Vikki! Just a taste here but you can see all the befores and afters on her blog My House, My Garden. Casa Cielo is available to stay but would you ever want to leave. I think I’d just laze by that pool forever. Let’s take in the view before moving inside after the jump.

Sandra’s home update

Here is the second of today’s reader’s homes. It’s an update of Sandra’s home decorating projects. (We featured her chair redo, dining room and den previously). She’s completed her biggest task – sorting out the living room. I really admire Sandra’s eclectic and global vibe – right up my alley. Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Today’s first reader’s home comes Amparo, who lives in Uruguay. She began decorating her new apartment a couple of months ago and now that it’s finally ready she wanted to share it with us and our readers. Love the vintage radio! Thanks Amparo!

Stalking the sand dunes

Posted on Fri, 1 Apr 2011 by midcenturyjo

The ultimate “beach shack”? Nestled in the dunes on Victoria’s coastline at Fingal is this contemporary interpretation of mid century cool. Definitely not your fisherman’s weekend shack unless of course you are head of a fish canning business. Me? I’d be happy just bunking down on the patio and taking baths in the swim tank! For sale here while the link lasts. Thanks Andrea for doing the stalking for me this time!
