By Popular Demand...My Aunt and Uncle's Beautiful Home Part 1

Hi Guys! Thank you for all the nice comments on the offices my aunt decorated.
I told her about all the nice things you said and she was very appreciative and allowed me to come photograph their home. I was anxious to see it again since I haven't been over in a while. I spent over an hour today just trying to take in all of the beauty and of course taking pictures...lol. She has moved some things around and purchased some new pieces since I've been there last. It is even MORE gorgeous than I remember! Let's start in the entryway...Soft beautiful colors...I love the flowers, they look so real! She uses alot of realistic looking silk arrangements in the acrylic water.

This is the formal living room, look at that chest!! This room is filled with beautiful things and is one of my favorites.

I love all the antiques and fabrics in this room. I can't say enough about it...

I will try not to say "love" so much, but it's going to be hard because everything is so pretty!

A simple vase of glads...
I can't help it....I LOVE this fabric!
On to the other living room....More beauty awaits...Look at all of this color, there is so much interest in this room.

I took this picture from the top of the stairs...It's a beautiful view of the whole room. On the right you can see a mirror... it really opens up the room and makes it feel bigger.
This chair really caught my attention...this is one of her newest finds. Love the black background with those coral colored tulips.
Another beautiful view. Don't those chairs look comfy and pretty at the same time?
She uses alot of plates on the wall, which I love....

isn't this table unique?

I spy a little leopard stool, how cute!


I love the greenery on the clock, great idea. Like I said in the last post, her bookcases are perfection.



On to the kitchen....look at that little pig with the grass! So cute!

You rooster lovers (that includes me) are going to love the kitchen area, she has some of the most unique roosters I've ever seen, including 2 of these lamps.

Oh my goodness...I love this pig!

Look at all the roosters!

I love this shot....isn't this dining area fabulous?!
This is so unique!
More roosters guys! Aren't they adorable!
This rooster is beautiful and those pictures....you know...I love em!

So pretty....

I hope you enjoyed the first tour of their home, be sure and come back for the second half in about 3 days. I'll be showing you much more including a new addition they recently added. You won't want to miss it!! Thanks for stopping by!

Kristen, I had gone to bed exhausted after a long day at work, got back up to discover this beautiful tour that waited for us. Thank your Aunt for opening her home to so many visitors. You are right on target, it is pure perfection. I love, love, love it!!! I'm going back for another tour, once is certainly not enough. There are so "many" things I like I can't just pick one. Looking forward to the second tour. Thank Auntie again for opening her beautiful home to us.
hugs ~lynne~

Melissa Miller said...

Kristen can I love a header photo any more than your new one? Lovely!

LOVE the initial pillow you made and zebra print is just soooo cool isn't it? It looks so good on your red couch.
Are you going to sell the pillows on your ETSY store? If so you know I have to get one. I'll be ordering a frame for my new nephew soon. I was wondering if you could mail it to my sister in B'mingham directly and I'll pay of course? We'll talk about it later on...

Yay for Kirklands coming to you!
Now I need a Hobby Lobby here...:)

You will love the blogging book. Gosh it's soooo pretty to look at.
