Home, "like falling in love"

Living Etc. A lovely pink kitchen

The first thing that occurred to me when I first saw India Knight's home is that she's one gutsy lady when it comes to decorating.

Pink everywhere, flowers, kid's artwork, holiday lights, and lots and lots of trinkets and items. There seems to be no restraint, and somehow this leads me to believe that this is how this mother of three lives life, with gusto.

“I knew as soon as I stood in the hallway of this happy, airy space that it was destined to be ours," India tells LivingEtc. magazine, which featured her home in their March 2009 issue. "It was like falling in love.”

And that's exactly as it should be, don't you think?

I thought this made the home an especially apt one to feature just a couple weeks before Valentine's Day. Check out the full slideshow tour at Living Etc. here. You can find India Knight's blog, full of all sorts of interesting design finds, here.

Wow Minnie - what a gorgeous home! I love homes with heart and this one certainly reflects the love that India has for it:) I wish I had her knack for using lots of items for decorating - if I tried, mine would just look like clutter and one big mess! Just gorgeous, thanks so much for sharing - T xx
