A Pacific North West Home

Jean and George were college sweethearts and now 50 years later, they live happily in a lovely house with their cute little dog on Fox Island. I admire not only their love for each other but also their taste in decoration. Here's a peek. P.S. They also have a wonderful son who's my husband :p.
