If you are like me you are already drooling at the photo of her home. It is a gorgeous "Southern" style home and just wait until you see what's she's done with the inside. Paula from Locksley Lane is such a lovely and gracious person, I know you are in for a treat. Her style is so liveable and every room so beautifully done, so sit back. grab something to drink and enjoy.
They call this area in SC, the "low country" because the land sits at water level. Hurricane season is taken very seriously and even heavy rains can cause big problems. But enough of that....we have a stroll to take. Come on up to the porch and let's rock awhile....it's one of our favorite things to do.
The kitchen is wide and opens right up to the family room. I used soft plantation beige paint colors to keep with the feel of the home. You can see all of my cookbooks that I love and use daily (hehehe) right off of the island above. Actually, I was cooking spaghetti sauce on the stove when I took these pictures. :)
The kitchen doesn't have a large space for a table. The nook was my initial decorating challenge. I had to find a table to fit with pedestal legs so people could move around the benches easily. I had the cushions recovered and replaced a drum light that came with the house. I chose a new light with flowing ironwork so it would compliment the open space of the room. Plantation shutters, pillows and accessories were added. I love my little nook now.
The kitchen opens to our family room. I use shades of sea foam green to accent the house and adore pottery and ocean finds since we are close to the beach. I'm not a proclaimed decorator by any means. I keep things simple and use things that feel good and that work with the family.
Marty - thank you bunches!!
Didn't I tell you her home was stunning. This is a home that I could just move right in and never leave. You would always find me on one of those porches too.
