Show Off & Inspire - Imparting Grace

Today I have a very special guest, one that I truly admire and adore.  Richella is such a beautiful person inside and out and she has a family that she adores and they adore her back.  I love all the red hair, how fabulous is that.  Her posts are always so full of love for her family, friends, home and the Lord.  You can't visit her without being Blessed.  I know you are going to love her as much as I do.

I'm so grateful to be here at Marty's today.  Marty is one of the kindest, most gracious people in the blogging world, don't you think?   What a treat to visit with her here!

I live in Durham, North Carolina with my husband our three red-headed sons.  I'm the oldest of the bunch, but definitely not the biggest:

That's a lot of red hair for one house, don't you think?  

Here's a glimpse of our home.

Here's the front door all decked out for Fall:

We love to hang out on our front porch.  This outdoor living room is one of our favorite spaces. You can read more about the porch here.

Now come on in and take a look around!  Our dining room:

I had a red dining room for 20 years before making the move to blue.  I like deep, dramatic colors for dining rooms, and I really like the way the dark walls work in this room with all the white woodwork.  You can read more about my dining room here.

The dining room leads to the kitchen.  Our kitchen is a large, open room, with lots of space for big boys and all their friends.  Here are a few recent photos:

Just as I love my front porch, I'm also grateful for my screened porch, which is just off the kitchen.  It's two stories off the ground, so it feels a little like being in a tree house!

As you can see, I like using lots of color in my decor.  Here are a few other spaces to explore.

My husband's library:

And here's the guest room, a room that's full of DIY decorating projects.  You can read all about the guest room here.

Imparting Grace is a place where I share my heart as well as my home.  Right now I'm writing a 31-day series on Caring for Myself Body and Soul.

I'd love for you to visit me at Imparting Grace!  

Isn't her home beautiful and such a fabulous reflection of her.  If you don't follow her, you really need to and by all means you don't want to miss her 31 day series of Caring for Myself Body and Soul.  Each post is so inspiring and uplifting.

Thanks tons for letting me Show You Off and Brag about you just a little, it is truly an honor.    So rush over and hit the follow button.

  1. Just stunning and beautiful home. Every room looks like the pages of a magazine. Thanks for Sharing Richella's home with all of us. I am hopping over to check out her blog. Have a great week end Marty.

  2. Marty, thank you so much for inviting me here today! I am so blessed to know you and honored that you would share a bit of my life with your friends. I appreciate and admire you so much! Every blessing to you!

  3. HI Marty! Oh, you're so right! Richella is a beautiful woman inside and out! I love her spirit and love her home. I love a home filled with love and hers shows that. Her home also shows how beautifully she's decorated it. I love it. I love these features.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  4. What a beautiful home and family--love the use of color! Thanks for featuring other bloggers, Marty--it's so nice to "meet" them!
    Dee :)

  5. Richella has a beautiful home! I just love her guest room and loved her posts on it. I was lucky enough to meet Richella at Haven this year. She was a sweet and lovely person, just like she comes across on her blog. Thanks for sharing Richella and her home this week, Marty!

  6. The front of that house is just beautiful. I love the inside as well. We have a lot of redheads in our family. Wish they would call them something else, as their hair isn't red.

  7. I love her house! I adore her cupboards...and my dad was a redhead....fabulous!

  8. What a gorgeous home. Oh, to have those! I enjoy the bold use of color and what a lovely family.

  9. Another beautiful home! Thanks for sharing her home with us at TTF!

  10. I've always loved Richella's home. So inviting and beautiful! Love her blog!

  11. Your home is like from a story book, just perfect in every way! Thank you for sharing!

  12. Well, I got logged out before I could finish my previous comment. Like I was saying, Richella was one of the first blogs I started following. Her beautiful spirit comes through in each and every post....and of course her home is so warm and inviting. Imparting Grace is the perfect name for her blog! I would love you meet her in person one day....I am only 30 minutes from her so maybe someday that will happen. She certainly deserves to be featured, Marty!


  13. OH to have such a perfect home! :) It's just gorgeous! The kind of home everyone dreams of living in! A lovely family too. She is truely blessed by the Lord!

  14. Richella has such a beautiful home, so warm and inviting. Such a sweet lady!
