Local Home Tour- My favorite House

disclaimer: all of these pictures were taken with my iphone as I am trying to order a new charger for my camera.
And the floor plans:

The first thing you walk in this home and see is the dining room and open living room.
The wallpaper in here was a very bold statement and read very well in the space.

Below you see pictures of the home office. there were way way too many people in here for me to get an overall shot. But the highlighting features were the antler pillows in a burnt umber color and the unique pattern on the tiles in this bathroom. Very strange to me to have a huge full bathroom off the office and no other half bath than the master and this to accomodate guests.

Wet bar back splash and hallway styling.
The kitchen casual entertaining spot was moderately lackluster but the stone fireplaces were in all the homes and the apparent rage. 
This is a view from the stair landing. 

The little girls room was precious and I loved all the pieces in there.

This chest was gorgeous!

These were the details of the Little Boys Room
No, those are not silhouettes, that is actual photography! 
Great local photographer!!

The master bathroom was weird, as were the walk in closets.

Again beautiful furnishings but nothing to write home about in this space.

Where you live do builders get together and build a cluster of high quality homes and do a home show? 

Not going to lie I go for the interiors and styling aspect. 

Not a single one of the homes impressed me enough to vote on the house that I thought won. Lets just say they were all quite choppy and some had 20,000 sq ft home style home theaters which was very very odd. 
These houses seemed to range between 3600 and 5500 sq ft.

Vesta Home Show 2

This was the second home at the show..., this home won best in show and by far was my favorite....

This bathroom was to die for!!

This bedding was very formal but elegant, and the otherside of the room looked like this.

Don't you just love it?

This is the third house... 
I didn't love the outside of it but the inside.... oh dear heavens, I felt like I was literally walking the pages of a magazine. 
This home had exquisite furnishings. I will let the pictures speak for themselves. (sorry i wasnt able to get more upclose... baby was very busy that day.)

This is the room in the carriage house over the garage (detached from home)

This home reminded me so much of New Orleans

The baseboards of this kitchen had the coolest feature.
You did a gentle touch with the shoe and the baseboards were hidden drawers under the kitchen cabinets to hide cash, passports, and jewelry. Genius idea!!!

Hope all of you enjoyed looking at these beautiful homes as much as i did. Now i am full of ideas and bursting at the seems to implement them!!

This past week has been pretty hectic. 
  • I finished the nursery bedding i was working on, 
  • finished the other set of panels for ACs room. (yes the fabric did retire and it took me forever to find more... but hey its the risk you run...)
  • cleaned out the garage
  • organized more clothing
  • cleaned out/super detailed my car
  • cleaned off all the walls where little bit decided to use an expo marker and create her own art....
Hope you all have a wonderful fourth of July!

First off i owe you guys an apology... i didn't hold up my end of the deal with blogging twice a day... i am so sorry, but getting two shipments of fabric in the mail/ finishing my friend's nursery bedding got in the way. Anyway, I wanted to share with you what my hubby and i did saturday night....
