One of my favorite shops in Kansas City is The Curious Sofa. Inspired owner, Debbie Dusenberry keeps an online diary which helps folks like me get a glimpse of all the Curious goodness going on oh, so many miles away. Well, it seems her magical home has made it to the cover of the current Country Living magazine, and if you want to hear all, and I mean all about it, visit her blog, The Curious Sofa Diaries. Debbie is so funny and open- she doesn't mind telling everyone that she completely transformed her home for the shoot. From a new exterior paint job to new kitchen counters, this style maven reveals all the crazy tidbits most stylists won't tell you go on behind the scenes of the 'picture perfect' rooms you see in magazines. I am most in love with her kitchen. I love the the opulent chandelier mixed with the distressed wall treatments and the clean white vintage appliances. I love the coziness of small homes. My dream house is a small house. Less to clean and you're forced to pair down to those essential pieces you really truly love. Or in Debbie's case, you just swap it out for something else and sell the piece in your dazzling shop!
