Hi friends! So glad you decided to tour the final home in this fun summer series along with me. So far, we have seen a total of five beautiful homes, each one very unique in its own way. Today, we are stepping into the home of another special blogger with such a lovely home. Read on. . .
Let me introduce you to the lovely home by Aniko from Place of My Taste. Have you being to her site before? She is such a cool girl with such a beautiful and humble heart. Her home projects and recipes are ones you won’t want to miss!! She is not afraid to mix styles and use a variety of colors in her home. And if you are in need of some photography lessons, ask her. She wrote a book about it, too. Think I need to get it:) Isn’t this such an amazing shot?!
I first got to know about Aniko’s blog through a link party she used to host called Work It Wednesday. One first look at her site and I was hooked! Everything looked so bright, clean, and beautiful. You know those websites that look so polished with such awesome pictures that just keep you going back to them? That is exactly how I felt about her site. And her profile image is just way too cool). It’s all about first impressions here!! But after a little while, for some odd reason, my electronics did not want to pull up her site. It was loading real slow no matter how much I tried. We finally got things straightened out and I have no problems now.
Then one day, I was brave enough to leave a comment on one of her recipes. What do you know, she totally replied. Say whatttttt? I don’t know about you, but when a blogger I admire replies to one of my comments it makes me happy. I feel recognized and want to go back. And I did! I don’t always leave comments but each time I have left one, I got a reply. (If you get hundreds of comments and cannot reply to all of them that is understandable). And then when she left a comment on my site, you know I was ecstatic!
Funny story. One day, a few years ago, when my BHG magazine arrived in the mail, as I flipped through the pages I saw something that caught my eye. On the second look, I realized it was a project Aniko had done with her backyard. She was featured in the BHG summer edition. See it here. I started yelling with excitement to my husband, “It’s Aniko!” I yelled the same words about 5 times. He looked at me and calmly asked “Who is Aniko?”When I calmed down, I replied, “Oh, you don’t know her – she is a blogger that I have been following”. End of my story but I am sure you are getting my excitement. Those of us who blog know how much we put into it. And to see our hard work being recognized by well-known companies is such an accomplishment. Mine haven’t (of course) but I love to celebrate with those whose work are even if they don’t know I do.
This next image features her fabulous family room. If you missed the one room challenge we did back in April with Calling it home, this was Aniko’s project reveal. She redid this room and added these awesome built ins. You’ll want to go see this rest of this room on her site.
Have you met Aniko before? Now that you have gotten a peek into her modernly colorful home, are you inspired to add some color to your home? If you have not been to her site, I encourage you to tour her summer home. You will love her style.
This completes my summer home tour series. I’ll be sharing a round up of all five homes tomorrow to see which one was your absolute favorite. Thank you for following along!
