~home tour~{part 2}

Today's post is a follow up to yesterdays.
Yesterday you saw the exterior and gardens of a gorgeous home that belongs to one of my friends.
Today I am taking you inside to show you what a lovely job they did turning this house into a home.

Lets jump right in with the entry.
This canvas is a photo the homeowner took.
A comfy rug and little bench as well as a few personal items complete the look.


Right off the entry is the living room.
As you know, my home is full of neutrals.
But that doesn't mean I don't love color.
This house is full of it and it just makes me happy!



The homeowner painted this piece of her daughter.




Next up is the cool staircase that is right off the dine in kitchen.
{looking back to the living room bookshelves}


There is a large round dining table under this fabulous round Ralph Lauren chandelier.
The encaustic painting is done by Willow Bader and might have been one of my favorite things in her home, although there were so many.



The kitchen itself is gorgeous with it's 2 tone cabinets, high end appliances, and built in espresso machine.







Off the kitchen is a little breakfast room that leads out to the backyard.
Sign made by yours truly.
Email me if you are interested in one.

A pair of old leather chairs, down pillows, and soft blankets are the perfect place to start or end your day.


The kitchen does not have a pantry, so off the other side there is a room dedicated to "food and wine"
Did you ever think food could look so good?




Opposite the "pantry" is a "wine bar"



More paintings from the homeowner.


Would you like to see where she paints?
Right behind these barn doors.......





Tons of light fills this studio.








 So, what do you think?
Beyond inspiring right?
I hope you loved every inch of it as much as I did.

~exterior house & garden tour~

I posted about this house on Instagram, and was planning to do a house tour.
But looking at my photos, I took so many that I am going to break it up into 2 posts.
So today we will start with the exterior and the beautiful gardens.

This house is just down the street from where I grew up, and where my parents still live.
It belonged to an artist friend of our families.
Both my kids took art classes here in her studio.

Then they moved to California and other friends of mine bought it.
She also is a talented painter and artist and fell quickly in love with the home and studio.
They took a while putting their own stamp on it, and I cannot wait to show you the inside tomorrow, so be sure to come back!

The houses exterior color is called Sea Serpent by Sherwin Williams.
It's beautiful contrasting with the white.
And look at that massive green lawn.
They also purchased the empty horse lot next door and are thinking about getting them.


There is this gorgeous pergola over the walkway leading up to the front door, completely covered in vines.


The piece of property is just beautiful and has so many mature trees and gorgeous shrubs and flowers.




Even a water garden outside the entry.













This is the path that leads back to the  Picket Fence Art Studio.



Ready to go see the massive backyard?



The backyard is a families dream.
It has a giant lawn for kicking the soccer ball around or practicing lacrosse.
There is a fire pit, outdoor kitchen, another water feature, several seating areas, a hot tub, and gorgeous rockeries.
























Outdoor furniture can be found here.
Striped pillows from here on sale too!
Yes, I will be buying about 10!


 I seriously did not want to leave.
I am glad I didn't bring my kids with me when I took these pictures because they would still be there.
Come back tomorrow to see the inside of this gorgeous home!

xoxo
