I love all the homes I post in my "Home Cookin', Great Homes Great Food" blog section (which is why I post them).

But so far, this home on Salt Spring Island in Western Canada, near Washington State,  speaks to me the most. Why? I don't know, LOL!!!

Just joking, I think it's because it is PERFECTLY my modern sleek style, with very clean lines and fresh open space, but it tries to break free from the norm, in that with those fresh vibrant colors, it can't help but get "A Little Crazy" with Color!

Like Seal says in the song posted below, "We're never gonna survive, unless we get a little crazy" !!!

…about the crib

Penner + Associates Interior Design put together the color, funky fresh Salt Spring Island Vacation Home.
