Easter Sunday showhouse......and you're invited!

Hope you all have a wonderful and joyous day. I have my parents and nephew in so we are planning on having a nice brunch, going for a long walk with Teddy (weather permitting) and then enjoying an intimate family dinner. Today's open house is a little celebration of Easter..we are starting off in Lake Michigan for brunch, off to Los Angeles for lunch and finally to the Dominican Republic for an Easter dinner! These homes are not only beautiful homes for Easter entertaining but for year round living. Would love to know what you think!! Hope you have a wonderful day!

First we start off on Lake Michigan, an idyllic peaceful gorgeous setting for our Easter day brunch. Your family and close friends await you in this fabulous shingled home overlooking the lake from every single room. Love the living room for sitting around after brunch and the actual dining room where brunch is to be served with those dreamy views!! Sunlit rooms, elegant understated, traditional furnishings complete this elegant family compound. Come on in........

Moving onto high in the hills right outside Los Angeles... we stop in for Easter day lunch at this beautiful authentic style Mediterranean home. Gorgeous distant city views are had from every window outside this charming home decorated by MAC II. Love the warm and cohesive interiors and how about that wall of glass in the master that opens onto the patio and those lush gardens...pretty fabulous! And that pool setting, it might be hard to leave to head to  our next destination!  The views are sensational too. Step inside.....

Have I got a treat for you for Easter dinner....hop on over to the Dominican Republic and this fabulous island home designed by Jacquelin Robertson and decorated by  MAC II once again. Fabulous, incredible, dreamy and perfect are just a few adjectives that come to mind when looking at the sumptuous interiors amidst the lush surroundings in this tropical end all be all estate. I would be happy just being a plant on one of the many loggias. The grandness of the rooms is spellbinding! Easter dinner never looked so good! Please do come in....

After all those meals..this fabulous pool setting awaits you and the extra 5 pounds you have just added to relax and take it easy to end a perfect Easter holiday! Hope whatever you really did was wonderful, delicious, happy and joyous and mostly spent with those you loved!!
Enjoy your special day!
