Elegant Home Tour-
Today I have the extreme pleasure of sharing an elegant home tour from the beautiful state of North Carolina,courtesy of my lovely bloggy friend Shirley from Housepitality Designs. Shirley and I have been bloggy friends for quite some time and visits to her blog often feel like I am stopping over for a cup of tea . Her style and talents as a decorator spark inspiration in all who stop by her sweet blog.
Hello everyone .
My name is Shirley and I blog at Housepitality Designs. I am thrilled and honored that Katherine asked to feature me today.
I love all things home . . .
~ ~ ~ I am in constant “decorating motion” . .
So today, I thought that I would present to you, a “mini tour” of my home.
Shall we start in the room where my hubby and I spend the most time in.
The large item over the fireplace is an antique iron and wood pair of shutters . .
~ ~ ~ the dealer said it came from a villa in Italy.
The Great Room with a view of the foyer.
The Dining Room . .
~ ~ it is a casual one that overlooks the back of the house . .
~ ~ ~ ~ rather than your usual dining room towards the front of the house.
The kitchen as it was in the Fall .
A little view of the sunroom, which is in the process of a makeover.
The Master Bedroom dressed for Spring.
The Master Bath
The Guest Room.
A peek into the Guest Bath.
A glimpse into the Media Room . . a work in progress.
A cozy little sitting area . . which is in the same room as my craft area.
My “Martha Stewart” craft furniture.
And this is my hubby’s getaway . .
The back of my home last summer.
The upper porch last Spring.
The front porch last Fall.
I cannot wait till the freezing temps are over . . .
~ ~ so that I can plant flowers and dress up the porches.
And be able to use my potting bench! There is one thing you can count on in my home . . constant change!
So many changes going on in many of the rooms. I hope you enjoyed this little mini house tour of mine . . .
~ ~ and a big thank you to Katherine for the honor of being here today!
Shirley’s home is fabulous, did you notice all of the pineapple accents she places throughout her home? Every time I see a pineapple decoration I think of Shirley. 🙂
I look forward to seeing you at the Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop. You can start linking up tomorrow at 8 PM (MST). ♥
