a reader's home...

Imagine my surprise when I opened an email from a sweet reader, from Iowa 
yesterday and saw these chic photos of her home!!
She was so kind, offering to share her solutions for her narrow living room after reading
 about my friend's dilemma. She used the same inspiration room from Sally Wheat, and did 
an incredible job! I can definitely see similarities but love that she infused her own personality
 in her space. I knew you'd love to see it, and she graciously agreed...  


She was hoping for a mid-century piece to use as a buffet table but didn't have room.
I think her compromise is lovely and still allows for storage.


Great texture, variety of furniture styles, mixed metals, and combination of patterns. 


Her room is as functional as it is beautiful! She's incorporated plenty of seating,
and although unconventional I love that she thought outside the box and placed the
 chairs in front of her fireplace. It makes sense to do what works for you and your family,
this is a perfect example of an unexpected solution carried out well.  



Look at that gorgeous kitchen with black cabinets, tulip table, modern seating and 
dose of bling - the chandelier!! 
Also, did you notice the floor lamp next to the sofa, perfect scale!


This appears to be the formal living room on the main level.
Beautifully paired patterns on the pillows, and her adorable six year old Shih Tzu.


I'm sure you'll agree Angie has created a gorgeous home, she shares it with her
 husband and has two sons, one still at home.
She says, "More than anything I love to see normal people's homes."

Thanks so much, Angie ~ you're an inspiration!

So stylish. I think Angie needs to blog! xo

Cathy Wall said...

How fun! Angie definitely has a fabulous sense of style, she has even incorporated Radian Orchid and I'll bet she did that ahead of the trend/color of the year announcement.

Angie did an awesome job of mixing styles. Her floor lamp is killer and I love how she even made the dog bed look stylish! Lucky pup. :)

How fun for her to share her home. Yes, looks like this is a beautiful home with great style.

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

Beautiful! Actually it looks so much like your style I would have thought you had lots of input on the room! Loving her mix of pillows and that round tufted ottoman.

Aren't we all 'normal'?! hahaha! Love it Pam, Angie did such a terrific job and her home is just well-thought-of and has the right amount of glam! Love the mix of textures all around the home as well. Thank you for sharing your home to us!!!!!

I enjoy seeing beautiful homes with professional shots for inspiration. I really like seeing how real people live, finding solutions, and some personal style! This is a beautiful home, so well done, and inspiring. I love the use of color and can really appreciate the paint. I see balance and scale along with style! Thanks for sharing.

Fantastic room…love the colors and her wonderful style!!…I love what she said about loving to see "normal people's" homes!

Lisa @ Shine Your Light said...

What a pretty home! I love the pops of purples and pink in the otherwise neutral space. I too love to see real spaces - maybe more readers will be inspired to send you their fabulous spaces after seeing this one!

Stacey said...

Wow, her home is beautiful! Great use of space and I love the purples that are added in. Seeing other people's homes is my favorite too. :)

Angie has more than a flair... She has an eye for scale and proportion; and, equally important, she recognizes the need to think about the floor color. So many people do not take that into consideration... it is critical in creating a "finished" look. She pulled out touches... the leopard pillows on the sofa and chair, the breakfast room chairs, the gold pig. Also, kudos to her talents in not over accessorizing... just the right amount in the proper scale and composition! She created a wonderful sense of balance in scale and color. Bravo... Job well done, Angie! Thanks for sharing!

I ran across her Pinterest account a while back, where she uploads her home photos. I sure do wish she had a blog, though! *hint hint* : )
