Show Off & Inspire - The Relished Roost

You are in for a very special treat, today we have Karolyn from The Relished Roost sharing her gorgeous home.  I am totally in love with this place and would move in instantly if given the chance.  You will find that Karolyn is not only adorable, beautiful and charming, but her home is breathtaking.  She is an Interior Designer who just returned from Ireland and collects things for her clients from around the world.  Her home definitely displays her style and love of classic design.  Can you tell she has totally captivated me?  

I am honored to be part of Marty's post on house tours today! I hope I don't disappoint her readers as my house is a bit more on the eclectic traditional side and not the fun trendy chic side that we are often seeing today. The old homestead is from the 1770's and is a center hall colonial farm house. We live in rural New Jersey but are still only 45 minutes from New York and 30 minutes from Pennsylvania. It has been a 14 year work in progress that never seems to end. We will be revamping the kitchen and butlers pantry in the Fall and I am currently painting a mural in our powder room. Hope you enjoy the tour!

























Are you as captivated as I am..  Her home is so beautiful, there is no need for commentary, you can see how carefully she has chosen every item and paid such attention to every single detail.  Now you definitely don't want to miss one single post, they are all full of tons of inspiration.  So if you don't follow her already, rush over and click that follow button. 


Thanks so much Karolyn for letting me show you off and brag about you.  I adore you home and your style.

  11. I can feel the love that has gone into curating every inch of this home, and am especially enchanted with the outdoor navy and white grouping on the brick. Is it a sun porch or completely out doors?

  15. I absolutely adore this home for the reason that Karolyn stated. It is a home that has been collected and put together over time. Each room tells a story. You just cannot buy this at HomeGoods. Just beautiful! Thank you for sharing Marty!

  16. Gorgeous home, Marty. Thank you for sharing. I'm heading over to her blog to see more!

  17. Oh yes Marty, Karolyn need not apologize for her lack of following the trends of what the shabby chic industry has done for a lack of designs. I love her mix of traditional with the century olds, the tack room feel down to the sitting areas of relaxing in comfort. The pool side view and that land scraping is so lush with greens ...it allows her home to really stand out rather then just fitting in.

    Yes she is a beautiful lady inside and out I much like her many years of interior design work on gated clmmunities ( Estate Model Homes) res/ com work I can relate to many styles and the feeling of relishing in the fact that no two clients are going to be alike and that home designs is truly a style pleasing job. I would work with clients with high end furnishing all the way to cottage decor, myself breaking away from a power struggle with living in a home with the fear of not sitting any ware to now enjoying the love of salvaging pieces and creating a cottage home on pennies and showing ones the fun in it all.

    Karolyn, has a home anyone of us would jump at the chance of moving in, I hear you Marty with wanting to move right in.
    A beautiful weekend to you my dear, one that inspires all it offers.

  19. Karolyn's home is absolutely gorgeous! Your home is so beautiful, and so warm and welcoming as well. You are so kind and helpful to include all the information and resource lists you provide, so I am a bit embarrassed to even ask this weird question: what kind of beverage bottles do you have in your bottle holder? They are the perfect size for a similar holder I have. Thank you!
