inspired home... christine

What a totally unexpected and awesome surprise this inspired home turned out to be! My last inspired home, Longwood, was exactly what I expected.. Super charming and conservative, beautiful fabrics and lovely antiques, great taste. However this home, which belongs to the daughter of the Longwood homeowners, was a wonderful and delicious contrast. Just as beautiful, just as charming, and totally different. Does a house speak to the owner's personality? Well it certainly does in this case. Christine and her happy home are young and fresh, cool and clever, smart and snappy..

Here we go!

This bold and beautiful entrance was such a happy surprise...

Absolutely love this entry with horizontal turquoise stripes. And a special hand painted feature by Andy Moore...

Look at the peacock!

The master bedroom ...

One of three little monsters (actually the other two were quite large!) who greeted me with special love and then accompanied us for the photo shoot... adorable!

Check out that fireplace surround... This girl is not afraid of a little sparkle.

I mean to tell you every spec of this house was immaculate! As I was snapping shots, I wondered if this perfection was a 24/7 kind of thing... Chris thought perfection was a bit of a stretch. "Always picked up with a smattering of dog hair" was her more accurate description, "and an occasional run-in with animal vomit." Did I mention she's funny?

Isn't the drapery brilliant? Sort of a summary of the home.

Breakfast room...

Agree wholeheartedly with Julia...

Love this wallpaper in the powder room...

The color continues in the charming bedrooms upstairs...

Check out this awesome tile!

Redolent of the turquoise entry...

What a fun opportunity to do mother/daughter inspired homes! Each home offers great style and character. I have come to appreciate and admire different design styles, and am equally attracted to design elements in each of these houses. The antiques, the color, the traditional, the modern ~ I love it all! And how fascinating to see such dissimilar styles from a mother and daughter. Like mother like daughter? Not!
