Repost: A Home Tour: Sophisticated Eclectic Style

Okay let me start off by saying I have been meaning to share my friend Dendy's home on here for... well, like a year!.
Now that she and her hubby have sold the house and are moving back to their home town I had no more excuses!
We are so sad to see them go but I know they are looking forward to being close to friends and family back home.
Meet Dendy, and her pup Martha.
In the background is her ADOREABLE 1950's home she and her husband have been working on for the past 2 years.

Is this not the cutest house ever??
Wait till you see inside.
Come on in!!
And in case you were wondering... Dendy is a HUGE trendsetter. Things that are just now popluar or "up and coming" she has had in her home for quite a while. 
I love to bounce ideas off her and have someone who shares my love of interiors.
When you walk in the front door you enter the former living room. 
D and her husband designed and built these gorgeous built ins and turned it into the formal dining room.
This is your view from the front door in. 
This is the sitting area off of the kitchen area. 
They added a corner built in, in this space and the built ins seen in the far left of this picture.

Here is the other view of the kitchen.
I LOVE this kitchen!!! Such an incredible use of space!! 
And the martha painting over the fridge just makes it to me!!
Super cute laundry area!
This is the guest bedroom.
Here is the master.
They actually took the far right wall of the room and converted it into a massive walk in closet.

And the bathroom.

One of these days I hope to get Dendy to actually start a blog!!

She is an incredible designer... Trust me!!
Right now she is flexing her design muscles on the University of Mississippi Campus designing dorm rooms. 
This is BIG business here in the south!

Hope you enjoyed getting a sneak peek at Dendy's home!
Thanks for sharing with us girlfriend!
We will miss you!!

Arts for Autism Home Tour

I have a very special treat for you all!

One of my nearest and dearest friends from college lives in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. 
She participated this past saturday in a home tour for the Arts for Autism.

Please join me in drooling over her amazing ranch style home. 

Everything is so chic and the perfect mix of all styles. 

Thanks for Sharing KMS!
The dining room

 The dining room is a split level overlooking the formal den

 Love all the stockings hung by the mantle.
Informal Den

 Stunning Artwork!
 Chalkboard Pantry Doors
 Little M's Room


Master Bath.
btw... we will save a WHOLE other post for her closet!!!
There are a few pictures of the girls rooms she shared on instagram!
 Here is a glimpse into Macon's room
And here is Hill's room

 I have a special attachment to this room.
K had me make the sham's for Hill's bed. 
Love how these shams are the POP in the room!

Thanks again for sharing friend.

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.
