I went to the UV Parade in June and every home just kind of started blending into the next. I wasn’t overly excited about this house based on the exterior images I had seen, but walking into this home was a breath of fresh air.
When I walked through it was so crowded, so I came back a few days later right at opening with my big camera and snapped pictures of my favorite parts of this gorgeous home. So lets just go through them… I love me a black/navy front door, and the organization of the windows/trim in this entry is so beautiful.
The front room had these amazing portraits. These are actually portraits of the owners ancestors, and they were enlarged and charcoaled and they are quite big and so gorgeous.
Also in the front room are these diamond transom windows. LOVE.
The stairs were so unique. We don’t have a lot of cast iron stair rails in these parts. And who doesn’t love a grand curved staircase.
And even better is the view from this angle that shows the double staircase going up to the attic. Amaze.
The dining room and kitchen in this house are just beyond amazing. I believe the kitchen is 1500 sq ft. redic. The eclectic dining room with a brick wall is gorgeous, and I just love the vintage plates on that brick wall.
And then looking into the kitchen that goes on FOREVER. But somehow it works! I love the layout with this eating island, and then the prep island in the main kitchen area. Also there are 4 sinks in this kitchen… can you spot them?
And look at this carved oak island with butcher block top. So so so beautiful and classic.
These cabinets are built by Benjamin Blackwelder who makes THE BEST cabinets in the world (even Mr. Project thinks so). Such an amazing craftsman.
And the white cabinet section of the breakfast bar area. I love open shelving and the glassware and dishes on them. Of course I love a good X door!
Moving on from the kitchen… this powder bathroom was hard to photograph, but I loved the chevron wainscoting.
The mudroom had these coral carved lockers.
And upstairs was the master bedroom with this lovely seating area and double-sided fireplace.
The master closet was pretty awesome with an entrance straight from the shower (seen in the mirror).
And my favorite part of the master bathroom was this gorgeous mother of pearl harlequin tile around the bathtub.
Also upstairs was a boy’s room with a bed loft inch (love this idea), and play area underneath. Also a rock climbing wall of course.
There was a small seating area/play area on the landing by the stairs, and it was decorated so cute!
My favorite bedroom in the house was an aqua and coral guest suite. This wallpaper was just phenomenal and all the decorating was spot on.
I love big rooms with seating areas… add in a coral striped sofa and I’m in heaven.
And a window seat with lovely pillows.
And more seating if you’re really popular. Love these vintage chairs!
Down in the basement was a sunken theater area. I loved this space so much, I wish we had sunken our basement!
The sunken space was dropped down about 2 feet, and then there were more sofas behind for additional seating area. So comfy looking!
And you can’t watch movies without treats… enter the round candy bar. Yum!
And a big banquette seating area for eating and parties no doubt.
There was even more to this house than I took pictures of, these were just my favorite highlights. What was your favorite part?
