Part 2 Of My Aunt And Uncle's Beautiful Home

It's time for part 2 of my aunt and uncle's beautiful home! There were some nice comments on the first half. I told my aunt about them and she was thrilled. I had several of you want her paint colors so I thought I would post them on here. The entry way color is Alchemy by Sherwin Williams and the living room and kitchen area is Different Gold by Sherwin Williams. There is just a shade difference in the two colors.
 
 On with part 2...
 
My aunt and uncle added a game room, bedroom, bathroom and sun room onto their house a few years ago. Everything turned out wonderful! Wouldn't this be a fun and beautiful place to entertain? 
 

I love the picture over the mantle and the bookcases beside it are decorated so beautiful.

 LOVE...
 

 What a gorgeous piece of funiture!
How neat are these chairs?
 What a pretty little sink area by the fridge and chairs.
 Beautiful chest and mirror...
 Ahhh...the sun room. Love the chairs with the bird pillows.
 I love everything in this picture...the chair, the little french table, the painted piece of furniture and even the little rabbit on the floor.

 Love this stunning blue cabinet!
 
 I think I could live in this room...if you look outside you can see a glimpse of the outdoor area.
 This is the master bedroom. What a beautiful bed and bedding...

 This is the sitting area off the bedroom...gorgeous!!
 Beautiful master bathroom...
 Very nice office area...

Now for the outdoor space they just added...can you say Wow!! I am going to go back over sometime and get some more shots without all the people...lol. You can still get an idea of what it looks like though. It is huge! They have decided to glass it in in the near future.
 
 Here it is at night. What an awesome place to entertain guests!
 Before it got dark I was able to go around and take some pictures. All of the fabrics out here are outdoor fabrics.

Love the sofa and pillows...



 Look at this chase lounge...love the fabric and cat pillow!
 Very nice outdoor dining table and I love the ceramic vases.
 These were the steaks we ate! They were so tender.
 Looking out to the pool area...
 I know I say love alot...but I LOVE that cute cat lamp!

 Here is another one on the other side of the fireplace. The outdoor fabric on the chair looks so good with the lamp shade.
 Gorgeous chandelier!


 Outdoor grill and cabinets with granite counter tops.
 
 
This is the outdoor bathroom that was added on the side of the outdoor space. It looks better than my two bathrooms combined!
 LOVE that mirror!


 
 This area used to be railroad ties.  They just had the bricks added and put in all new landscaping. 
 
I hope you enjoyed the pictures! Their home is definitely something to see! There is beauty around every corner...

HOLY CANNOLI, this is one of the most BEAUTIFUL homes I have EVER seen! Your Aunt has FABULOUS taste and her home is filled with gorgeous treasures. I LOVE her style and how she decorates. I love her use of furniture pieces and that outdoor space is amazing! I have saved this post to go back to again and again. I saved the first one too. Please THANK your Aunt for allowing you to share her home with us. I am SO inspired. XO, Pinky

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Their home is stunning, Kristen! I'm so glad you were able to share it with us. You'll have to thank your aunt. : )

Maria Elena said...

Kristen, what an amazing home!!! And beautifully decorated! The outdoor space is just amazing!!! I really enjoyed the tour.

Melissa Miller said...

Wow, absolutely stunning and spectacular Kristen. I can see why she is your decorating inspiration. Amazing! So many details to see. I could spend all day studying each photo. Thank you for showing us.

I hope you have been well my friend. I know you are about to get super busy decorating the trees and homes.

Warmly, ~Melissa :)

Gloria Westerman said...

I could just lose myself in a home like this....I wish you Aunt could decorate my home like that.....it's so warm and comfortable....elegant and beautiful....thank you so much for sharing....I think I'm going to hang out it for awhile...I think it call stalking....LOL...

Susan said...

That is the most AMAZING outdoor space and I wouldn't change a thing, it's my favorite part of the house!! I'm in love with the Outdoor Grill/Kitchen Area! If I had an outdoor space like this I would spend every waking moment there without hesitation!!
Thank you so much for sharing their beautiful home with us.
P.S. I KNOW you enjoyed those awesome looking steaks, too!

Oh my goodness, I can't imagine living in such a beautiful home. I have a very nice home and love to decorate it and keep it clean, but...never in my life could I see myself living in a house like that. Your aunt and uncle should be very proud of what they have. BEAUTIFUL is not a strong enough word for that house.

Kathy said...

Hope there is a part #3 to this house. Love all the pictures.

thanks for sharing. we all drive by houses and wonder what it really looks like inside. thanks for the tour.

Jeanette said...

WOW! What an absolutely perfect house!! Your Aunts decor is impeccable. I could look at their home all day long and study all the little elements. Perfection!

Tammy Partin Spangler said...

Lovely home and amazing outdoor space!

Denyse@Crazy Beautiful Life said...

Wow! Beautiful home and I love the outdoors...What I want to know is how do they protect all that outdoor decor if they get a rain storm?? I can't sit on my patio furniture for days if my cushions get wet and they have actual furniture.

Kristens Creations said...

Denyse, They have decided to glass it in. I'm the same way with my patio furniture...it stays wet for a while. Also, the leaves and pollen will be a pain in the fall and spring. I believe they are having an architect draw up plans to enclose it now.

Janice said...

Beautiful home. Love all the furnishings and decorating. Someone has good taste.

Carol said...

WOW and DOUBLE WOW! I have no other words!

JOY @ http://joysjotsshots.blogspot.com/ said...

Your Aunt and Uncle have done a great job making a huge home look cozy. When I visit friends and relatives with such nice homes, I'm always depressed when I get home. They are so lucky to have such nice things. enJOYed the beautiful tour.

Cathy's World said...

I am a summer girl. The whole house is beautiful. However, I would live in the outside. I can see myself cooking every night in that stunning outdoor kitchen. I don't like cooking because I don't like to mess my kitchen. But, the outdoor kitchen at your aunts house...I can really have some fun out there.
We get a lot of wind here in California. Does your aunt get wind there. Our outdoor space is really pretty but I wish I could decorate with candles and vases like your aunt did. If I did. My stuff would either blow into the neighbors backyard or break. Ha! The only way I can put some pretty stuff out there is if I fill it with cement to save it on windy days.

Beautiful home!

Suzy said...

Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Gorgeous! All of it! Thank you for sharing, Kristen.

Betsy Hairston said...

I am so in love with everything about this house. I really like how a variety of colors are used perfectly together. Every pic is so cozy and inviting and the outdoor space has such a WOW factor. Thanks for sharing, you have my mind racing with ideas!!!!

Wooden Exterior Doors said...

Classic house! The interior is so sophisticated, and the living room is pretty cozy. Love to take a dip on that pool!

Where did that beautiful towel bar come from in the bathroom. It is a must have.

Cynthia Petty said...

Beautiful. Would you possibly share where I could find the towel bar in the bathroom. I cannot find a decorative towel bar that is flush to the wall. I have searched everywhere. Thanks, CPetty
