The very unassuming exterior. You have no idea the party that is about to begin behind door number one.
Already gushing just over the front door color, Coos Bay by Pratt and Lamber, and this oversized silver door knob. It was really big and shiny and had a great Alice in Wonderland vibe to it.
The foyer table fabric was my absolute favorite (and there are a ton of great fabrics in here). Peacock Pavers, big fan, in an ivory tone (If you are reading Kristen, this shade is equally gorgeous ;-)).
Here is the floor plan for this beauty...we have just entered into the oval-shaped foyer (bells and whistles blaring).
We enter the left hall to experience the Master Bedroom that sits separate from the rest of the house yet with a stunning view of the pool and private access to the courtyard.
Pocket door entrance into master bath with jellyfish prints and two bachelor chests flanking the entrance.
Its hip to be square.
gorgeous tile aglow.
A close up of all the wonderful pattern mixes by Erika Powell of Urban Grace Interiors (she designed the ENTIRE home). If you follow her, like I do, you are cheering for her throughout the entire tour!
The view from the bedroom.
Moving on to another bad ass bedroom...
The walls were covered in an oversized herringbone fabric.
Gorgeous trim tape on these chairs!
I die for this brass hardware. You're coming home with me! All of the cabinetry throughout was made back home, here in Cumming, Georgia. Right on.
More great pattern mixes
Then it was time to route back to the foyer and hit the main living area.
A gorgeous dining space. Euchre anyone? Long live plates on the wall! I'm getting ready to go off with some plates on the wall in my design business. Can't wait to share.
A slightly elevated perspective. Entertain much? This house screams entertain me...
She's a beauty...hood and all.
Beautiful rugs, floor and table...
All lighting via Circa Lighting. Some of the best in the business.
Off the kitchen was the gorgeous Scullery. I've been dreaming of converting an extra closet between my dining room and kitchen and doing a mini version of this...dreams are fun.
In love with this enormous painting on the opposite wall. Love you to pieces.
The artillery for entertaining is standing by...
Another off shoot of the main living space is the study with pecky Cypress walls. Let's all take a moment and pause in praise of pecky Cypress.
More gorgeous artwork! Simple but sufficient in its unframed state with pops of orange. A painting like this, doesn't need a frame.
Forever a fan of this console table, similar one available through Wisteria.
No words for this next bath. Ding, ding, we've got a winner!
When you weren't walking on Peacock Pavers, you were walking on these planked pretties.
This next picture should be titled, "how to hang artwork around a flat screen t.v.". Fill the space you all.
In case you were wondering, this next photo was my most favorite thing of the whole tour (okay so the ping pong table is pretty tops). I'd love to know if its still available because I want. It gave me a great idea for artwork at the condo. I've come across a long skinny black and white version similar to this and why I do not pull the trigger, I'll never know. Arrrr.
The greatest ping pong table EVER. I'm repeating myself.
A sweet little window nook that again can't help but think fairytale, Alice.
Opposite the sweet little nook was a wall to wall mini bar/kitchen. This stone took my breath away. Look at all that movement. To die. The fixture, just flexin some more muscle in case you were on the fence.
Render me speechless...the media room...and who is the stalker in stripes? ;-)
Concrete side tables - we love you.
This next set up gave me a great idea for a movie night, just because, for Jack and Soph and their buddies. Did your parents ever, completely out of the blue, do something special and its forever engrained under "awesome childhood memory"? For us, it was when they busted out "Intellivision" in like the dead of February on a school night?! Mom jumped out from around the corner - "surprise!" - holding the box. It was great. My brother and I stayed up late playing basketball and I couldn't wait to get home from school the next day to play again. Kinda like when cable finally came to town. I can watch these movies whenever I want? MTV? I must have watched Mommie Dearest 1,000 times (partly just to see the interiors of their home and the fancy blue and white Christmas tree...a blue and white Christmas tree? Say what?).
Remember this and do something out of the norm special, spontaneous, every so often, like every couple of years often, so it stays special. It really doesn't take much. Growing up, we weren't allowed to drink pop. I see my sister-in-law doing this and I love it. At Torch the kids get to drink Pepsi on the Fourth of July and they are so excited. They know its special. Soda. Simple. As kids, all three of us would sneak in to the frig at different intervals throughout the day and night to steal a sip of Mom's Pepsi until there was none (oh you better run and hide). Big ole clunky glass bottle with that crazy silver suction cup contraption on top to keep it fresh. It made so much noise when you were sneaking a sip...POP! Whatever happened to those...I could use one for my wine...
"Your children get one childhood, make it memorable"
I have no idea who said that but I read it in an email once and it stuck. xo. Sorry the candy took us on quite a tangent. Back to biz.
The view down below. The landscape architecture is flat out fabulous.
A sweet-as-pie bunk room. Can you imagine all the precious little faces tucked in here?
Yet another bedroom. This house can hold em!
I honestly do not know how Erika kept it all straight. She deserves a standing ovation.
Moving back downstairs, another sweet bunk room was flanked by four baskets hanging on the wall. Such a simple yet awesome idea that makes a wonderful impact and focal point.
I have to say, this little gem of a room was one of my faves. I'm a sucker for stripes.
Not quite finished! These lamps shot to the top of everyone's wish list.
Framed intaglios. Always in fashion.
A close up of the gorgeous drapes.
A favorite vanity and I just love the long pulls used here with all the drawers. Great use of space.
Moving outside...its margarita time!
The new "Poolhouse Governor" lantern from Bevolo - LOVE U!
So are you speechless? I am. Nothing left to say except have a wonderful holiday weekend!!! See you all next week, same bat channel, same bat time.
