Gone Girl Lake House

If the book and movie wasn't thrilling enough for you (it was for me), then go see the movie to look at beautiful homes, at least. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and movie and apparently, this is Desi's lakehouse:

I blinked and it was winter!

Summer fun, summer blues, turned 50 in Hawaii and BAM! Winter arrived. That's when it gets back to the house and all that needs doing before we put it on the market next Spring. On my mind? Rugs! Why the heck are they so hard to find in Toronto?
Looking for one to go with this room and thinking 1st and 4th:

Beach House & Pinterest

My new infatuation:

After 12 years, two daughters growing up with summers waterskiing, tubing, wake-boarding, camping, swimming and marshmallow roasts, we've decided to put our woodsy cottage up for sale. The girls have grown up and now we find ourselves on the brink of empty-nesting. I turn my attentions to our future and where we can grow into our golden years a little less ruggedly. Enter the Beach House idea! My Pinterest addition is facilitating this new infatuation, so I'll only give you a taste of it here
