It’s Sunday Morning and the air is crisp and cool! It really is FALL! Time for this weeks episode of The Cottage of the Week…Starring Our Southern Living. You are in for a treat…so grab your cup of coffee…tea…latte or even your diet coke and join me as we take a trip down South and enjoy a very gracious Southern Home.
Christy is a real sweetheart and adores blogging. She use to teach 5th, 6th and 3rd grade along with ESOL and Early Reading Intervention but she left her profession when her second child was born so she could be with her children. Something that she never regrets…Being Mom is the best job she has ever had! But she still keeps here hand in the educational process by subbing! Nothing makes her happier than her family and friends. Her friends lovingly refer to her as Martha Stewart and you are about to see why : ) Let’s knock and take a Sunday Morning tour of this gorgeous home.
Before we go in…let’s take a peek at the Front Porch all decked out for the Fall…we start with this amazing vignette and may I say it is simply amazing and oh that shabby color turquoise is scrumptious.
Kristy is such a fabulous decorator. She incorporates antiques, vintage, new purchases and inexpensive thrift store finds to create her magic decor. According to her family…Kristy would rather go to a Thrift Store than the Mall!
During the Summer…the table is set with fresh blooms and I had to share them with you because the table looks exquisite.
I have to share this piece of hand painted furniture with you…accented with just the right touches…but the silver footed tray that Kristy’s Mother gave her is the shining star kissed with pumpkins and hydrangeas.
details! This little vignette is a perfect example of Kristy’s thrifting ways…Here we have a $2 thrift store shutter and with the addition of felt pads…it becomes the perfect tray for the base of this display. Upcycling is so great! Gotta love it!
From every angle…this room if fabulous. The trim…the windows…the fabrics all just blend together in perfect harmony.
Cooking is a favorite hobby in this home and let me tell you…the kitchen is absolutely awesome! It is the families favorite room in the house and you are about to see why. I feel as though I have been transported to the South of France.
The island is spectacular and adds to the Country French look. The bead board cabinets are picture perfect. You have to go and take the complete kitchen tour and you will learn about the planning and execution of this gorgeous piece.
The tumbled marble was hand painted by a local artist…the Frenchy Country village scene is so…French…fired for major durability and adds so much personality to the space.
My heart is a flutter…a pasta water faucet!!!
The cabinetry is amazing! There is just so much more to see here…drop by for a cup of coffee and enjoy all the other details. I think the ONLY thing this kitchen is missing is Jacques Pepin
It is all decked out for the Fall Season…come and take a look at more of the details and all the Farm Fresh goodness!
When you have a moment…drop by the Guest Room…tons of vintage and cottage chic goodness awaits!
Then there is the young man of the houses room and I ask yet the same question…is the bed always made like that??? If so…I want to know your secret!
I do have to make note that your son has extraordinary taste in baseball teams!!!
