Part 1 Of My Aunt And Uncle's Beautiful Home

I have a special treat for you! I am going to show you one of the most beautiful homes I have ever been in. It just happens to belong to my aunt and uncle. They had us over on Saturday night for a wonderful meal in their new outdoor space. Oh my...it is something to see! I will be showing it to you on Wednesday along with more of the house in part 2.  Be sure and come back! You will not want to miss it.
 
Not only is the inside beautiful but so is the outside. It has so much southern charm.
 
 
My aunt's decorating has always been an ispiration to me. She mixes old and new and finds the most beautiful accessories all over the place including consignment shops and thrift stores. She truly knows how to put things together to make a beautiful and impressive home.

   Here is the entryway...love the staircase.   
 To the left is the living room. The colors are beautiful in this room...
 What a beautiful chest and mirror.
 
 
 
 To the right is the dining room. Look at the tall candle holders...they really make a statement. Love this room too...
 This is the main living room. It is just beautiful.

 Beautiful gold sofa and coral chairs...
 The black floral chair is one of my favorites.
 
Beautiful bird plates and secretary...
 Here is a view looking down from the balcony. Wow!
 This miror is huge and beautiful! I love how my aunt adds such bold pieces. This is in a hallway leading into the kitchen.
 This kitchen is for the rooster lovers! Look at all of the roos up on top of the cabinets.
 Pretty rabbit oils...
 Love the pig and rooster lamp.
 This is the kitchen dining area...beautiful chandelier and dining table.
 This is a downstairs bathroom. The walpaper is so unique! Love it...

Every inch of this house is filled with beauty! I love walking through it over and over because you always see something new. This home is definitely magazine worthy!!
 
Be sure and come back on Wednesday for part 2 of this beautiful home! You will not want to miss it. Wait until you seen the sunroom and outdoor space. Wow!

(sorry for some of the blurry pics...I was in a hurry and my camera wasn't charged all the way. I think I need to go back and take some day time pics. Don't you? =)
 
Have a great day!

Stunning! The decor so reminds me of my aunt's house in Carlsbad, CA. She had unique taste also, i.e. the coral colored furniture. A pleasure to view, Kristen.

Susan B, the ovens are to the right. You can barely see the edge of them. That's why I need to go take more pics! lol...I was kind of in a hurry.

Unknown said...

Absolutely lovely - I too really like the large mirror near the kitchen, and I couldn't help but notice the wonderful corner window at the kitchen sink. I can't wait to see part 2!!

Your aunt and uncle have a beautiful home, Kristen! Looking through these pictures, I kept thinking this has to be in a magazine somewhere.

Now I will be wishing the week away so Wed. gets here faster! What a beautiful home. Your Aunt has fabulous taste and sure DOES know how toput things together. I have never seen 2 big chairs like the coral ones right next to each other before. Very interesting. Do you know why she placed them like that? XO, Pinky

Kristens Creations said...

Pinky, I believe that is where they sit to watch t.v. There is a actually a t.v. in front of the chairs that you can't see in the pics. I'll try to get the rest of the pics up tomorrow night. This house is truly amazing and one of a kind...
