~ inspired home: hill top manor


Part One

I am over the moon excited to share this gem with you. This charming house has so much character and personality. It's handsome, smart, and interesting. I am committed to my conviction that any style of decorating can be fabulous if it is done well. This house meets that criteria to the maximum extent.

I instagrammed this photo as a teaser a couple days ago and my phone exploded with excitement. .. 

That brick framed archway is quite something isn't it? 
And how about the pair of mirrors?

Here's the archway from the the other side just inside the front door. I adore the floor treatment. It has an old world charm and is inviting and warm. This house has a plethora of fabulous details... too many to capture in my afternoon photo session. 



French doors lead to a wonderful patio overlooking a magnificent yard. That will be another post to look forward to!

And at the other end, the front door... 



When you walk through that gorgeous archway, you enter this stunner of a room.

This post will serve as part one of a series of this particular house as this great room deserves a post all to itself. I mean it is spectacular.

Vignettes are everywhere...




Love this view ~ look at the floors!

A ginormous TV screen hides behind the tapestry... 

Here's one set of stairs we'll go up next time :)

And here's another set...

Full view from the entrance...

Full view from the fireplace...




I mean the pillow situation is out of control...



Much more coming up! Wait until you see the kitchen...

This really IS amazing--and kind of rare! I prefer natural woods and more color...

The floors are fabulous here, in my opinion. And the view from the kitchen sink window - Perfect.

I grew up in this house, and I must say, it's unrecognizable! I know as my folks got older, they were unable to care for the place as much as it needed, and it was time when they sold it a couple of years ago. I'll admit, on moving day, I cried in the driveway at the sight of the moving van. But, I'm so very happy to see that the new owners love the place as much as I did. You've done an amazing job. I can still see traces of where my childhood happened, but you've given it the love and attention it had been deprived of for far too long. Bravo.
