reader's house tour...


I have a huge treat for you today!
A couple of weeks ago I received the sweetest email from one of my readers, we were
 chatting about my hutch and she showed me a photo of her dining room, it was gorgeous!
 It was so stylish, and well put together and I got a little peak into the kitchen, intuition told me
 there had to be more fabulous rooms, so of course I asked, and she kindly sent photos.
My jaw dropped as I scrolled through them.
 She was so kind to allow me to share them with all of you...enjoy!

I have lived in this home for a little over a year. It is a home which has many other homes with similar floorplans in our neighborhood. Keeping resale in mind, my husband and I tried to put as many custom touches in this house as we could think of ( who are we kidding,,, I mean " afford" lol) I did my best to make sure that every room had something unique about it. One thing I love is that the home is 100% hardwood, except the wet areas. I also tried to do neat things with all the ceilings. Most rooms have beadboard, or coffered, or beamed ceilings.

Dining Room to the left as you enter.

Stable Doors to the man cave, on the right as you enter.
She had her builder make the doors from a picture she tore out of a magazine.


Behind the Stable Doors...


Teen Son's Room


Upstairs Bonus Room






Kitchen with over-sized workspace and custom details.


New island from Restoration Hardware.


Her Emma Bridgewater collection.


Den off of Kitchen

Guest Room


Upstairs Landing



They designed the stair railing.


Guest Room


Downstairs Guest Room



Outside Patio



I think she did an incredible job creating a stunning home filled with character!

Also, she said she would love to start a blog, but isn't technical enough.
I'm proof that it's not necessary and I'm sure I'm not the only one, right?

Jaw dropping for sure! That guest room, the landing, THE PATIO...all fabulous! She knocked it out of the park! Thanks for sharing this one with us.

Love her attention to detail! "Not technical enough" seems to be the top reason for not starting a blog. If only people knew how easy it is (well, most of the time. ha!) Thanks for sharing.

Crissy @ House of Marlowe said...

Beautiful. Love all the charming details..... the stable doors are my favorite!

cindy said...

Hi Pam,cannot get all of the images to load, tried it in Safari and Google Chrome but nada.

Carol Parrish said...

She did a great job and needs to start a blog.

Lisa @ Shine Your Light said...

Oh my gosh - this lady needs a blog for sure! All those lovely details!! What a beautiful home - thanks for sharing, Pam!

Nancy said...

wow it is a fantastic home! I love all the touches and love she put into every room..It is such a compliment to have reached out to someone who reaches back and shares their passion. That's why we blog!

Same her but what I did see was gorgeous! And if I can start a blog..anyone can. Lol

suzyq said...

What a beautiful home - filled to the brim with architect beauty!!!
Just loved seeing it - thanks so much for sharing :)
Hugs,
Suzan

Nancie Bee said...

Gorgeous rooms, although only half the pictures loaded for some reason.
I just started my own blog and while it's a work in progress, YES, she can do it. Blogspot makes it pretty easy.
(Mine is Sixtyxsixty.blogspot.com and is all of two weeks old. She can see how easy it is to get that far in a short period of time...)

Cathy Wall said...

How lovely, especially the custom touches like the barn doors and stair railing. The decorating is pretty awesome as well!!! She should totally start a blog....!

Cotton said...

oh my gosh my jaw is dropped too! It's the perfect mix of rustic and southern classic--perfection!

Suzy said...

Gorgeous, gorgeous home! Thank you for sharing. And yes - she should start a blog!

Katie {Miss Dixie} said...

Gorgeous home! I love the stairs and that outside porch. Time to start a blog!

Cassie @ Primitive & Proper said...

WOW!!!! what a beautiful home- i love all the cozy bedrooms!

cindy said...

Love the stair railing and her fearless use of black in decorating her charming home. Please know that if I can blog, anyone can blog! Go for it, easier than you might imagine. The most important thing to know about blogging is proper light for interior photography. Pam, you are an expert on this and can give her(and all of us) advice!

meaningfulspaces said...

Beautifully done home! Thank you for sharing.

Patty Day @Pattys Epiphanies said...

One GREAT HOUSE!! It got better with each view! The features add so much character and warmth. Quality and classic, wonderful taste throughout!!!!

My Crafty Home Life said...

What a beautiful home. She killed it, and it has amazing consistency throughout.

Bethany [at] Powell Brower Home said...

ok seriously - this is FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!! I love it!!

Joanne B. said...

I do wish she would start a blog so I can stalk her style! I have alot of dark touches in my home- dark brown/black uba tuba granite in the kitchen with maple cabinetry, dark brown black wall unit in the adjoining family room. I like how she has the drama of the dark pieces, yet her home looks light and lovely- just what I need too! Comfortabley casual, yet elegant! Wowsa!

Julie Taylor and Danni Greenwalt said...

Pam...she did a wonderful job... She needs to get a professional photographer and submit these to Country Home magazine.......

Lori said...

Thanks for sharing, Pam. What a beautiful home! Especially love the patio and I need her sofa table for my entry! Sign me up if she starts a blog. She couldn't find a sweeter mentor than you.

charmaine said...

Very well done! What a beautiful home!

Gretchen said...

WOW! WOW! WOW! I love it all! Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful home with all of us.

Tara {The Silver Lining} said...

So very charming. That kitchen and outdoor living area are gorgeous! She definitely should start a blog as she has great style and so many wonderful tips I'm sure we'd all love to read about.

Gigi said...

All of my pictures laded. Absolutely beautiful! Could you please get some info on those rugs! Did she make (handwritten script) or purchase? What an awesome DIY it could be! Drop cloth with padding underneath, favorite quotes or scriptures painted on top! I also would love to know where those white comforters came from. Thanks so much for sharing!!

ECKDesign said...

This woman is crazy talented. WOW! Love her color scheme... simple and classy. Thanks for sharing!

Tracey Steele@Breathing English Air said...

A treat indeed, Pam. What a stunningly beautiful home. I like absolutely everything about it, and I confess, I will be copying a few things. Well they do say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!
The destinations for the number 27 bus on the patio are all areas I have worked in, lol.

Julie redheadcandecorate.com said...

Beautiful woodwork...I love the rugs too...so beautiful!!!

Judy said...

thank you pam for sharing your friend's gorgeous home and please thank her for allowing you to. just like many of the above commentors, i agree that this lady is crazy talented! hopefully you (or we) can convince her to start a blog...she's already taken the first step by sending you her photos.

i would love to know where she got the black & white check chair and bedding in the boy's bedroom and also the square frames with white mats in the hallway.

thanks again for sharing such a delightful home!

Calypso In The Country said...

She just has to start a blog! I would follow her in a second! I love, love, love her home and I love all the checks. I have to add more to my home. Thanks for sharing Pam. I could take house tours 24 hours a day!
