inspired home: mary

I recently had the opportunity to visit a lovely home that I've admired from the outside for years. What a treat to know the homeowner is a lover of The French Tangerine, and has in fact incorporated ideas from this blog into her home!

Laurie and Charles Photographs. I've done a post on both artists and am a fan of their photography as well... Understandably, she has quite a collection ~ her children are precious!

And imagine my surprise when I walked into this handsome library to find the color coded books! Where did she get such an idea? (here!)

And guess who painted these stair banisters to create this powder bath sink? None other than Andy Moore... (here)

So much of the first floor is floor to ceiling windows which have incredible views, but make it difficult to photograph. When you see the backyard, you will have a great appreciation for these windows and understand why there are so many!

Lovely antiques and charming vignettes can be found throughout the incredibly well-kept home...

The beautiful patio can be seen through these windows. Andy Moore painted these walls in the most charming decorative garden theme... perfect for this sunny room. (Again, hard to get a good shot with all that natural light pouring in!)

I loved the clean and uncluttered look throughout the house. And check out the gorgeous green on that kitchen island... very similar to mine... (here) A coincidence? (I'm not sure as I didn't notice the pretty green until I was home examining the photos!)

Here you can see the back of the house... beautiful and immaculate!

The garden is coming up next!
