Loungers, where r u?

I am on the hunt for teak loungers for the cottage. They range from $399 to $1500! Seriously! The same darn lounger. Goes to show the rip-off artists are abound. As I am googling prices, and then derailing into endless linking and blog reading, I come across pics from a favourite movie that have my loungers. Thanks to Between Naps on the Porch for collecting them together; here are shots from Something's Gotta Give -

Hey...I have a banker's chair like that! Now I know to paint it white.

Decisions. Decisions. What do you think???

I need help.
When it comes to interiors, I'm there. I can visualize, no problem. Exteriors? That's a little harder. So I put it to you. Which of the 3 following exteriors do you like? We have agreed to 2 separate garage doors, but it is the dormer(s) on the 2nd floor we are contemplating. Some tweaks need to be done, we see that. But, which of the three do we move forward with. I have an idea, but would love the national survey on this. Any thoughts???



or #3?

Dream Baths

Thanks to Houzz and their subscribers for some wonderful photos and design ideas! Here's a couple photos from a recent entry and I couldn't resist. I am all for a fab bathroom and have already plan one with a jacuzzi and another with a footed tub in the new house plans. But this photos really stretch the imagination of what's possible. Dream Big!
