My Aunt and Uncle's Beautiful Southern Home

 There's no doubt that my aunt and uncle's house looks like it came right out of a magazine! It has charm and character and is very unique. My aunt is an awesome decorator and she has inspired me in many ways. Even when I was young I thought she had the most beautiful house! She mixes antiques with new unique items to create beauty and interest in her home. They recently renovated their master bathroom and kitchen and painted all of the walls. It is bright and airy and I think you will agree that bathroom is gorgeous! Of course, the kitchen is stunning too along with the rest of the house. She has also had furniture recovered and redecorated almost every room. I posted 46 pictures including some of the outdoor living area and pool. 

Enjoy the pictures and feel free to pin them for inspiration!

It's beautiful. I love the colors, the furniture, the crystal, the artwork (the modern piece, too), the pool table . . . everything! Thanks for sharing all the lovely photos.

Lovely traditional home! Love the outside as much as the interior! Fun looking at all the photos!

This is a wonderful post! Your aunt performed an amazing task. I know she is a decorator but, I cannot wrap my brain around the fact she came up with so many fabulous things. The colors are beautiful and everywhere I look there is something that catches my eye. Thank you for sharing and for so many awesome photos to enjoy.

Oh my word, gorgeous, colorful, interesting, wonderful! I am so glad you posted.

I need a follow up on paint colors she selected. Truly, you ladies are super talented!

Be still my heart. Any woman born in the south can identify with her home. It's beautiful. I love the blue and white Chinoiserie. Even my collection is not that large. Does anyone know how southern homes adopted the Asian influence ? Thank you for sharing the amazing photos. I am up for adoption in case she is interested.

Very well put together. Love all the colors, especially kitchen (walls, cabinets). Would you be able to provide the paint colors for the kitchen? Thank you.
