House Crush N° 44—Upstairs


What a cute puppy!


Happy Friday! I thought a cute puppy was the perfect way to start the tour upstairs of this amazing House Crush. Puppies and velvet just seem to attract each other…at least at my house.

The upstairs has three bedrooms and three baths. The guest rooms are located off  the open landing to the living room below. I love this plan with the master at one end and the guest at the other. A simple study with that beautiful view is located on the upper landing with a private deck to enjoy a little get-a-way—this whole house is the perfect get-a-way for me. The pine floors are painted a simple white and were inspired by the floors in the home owners Grandmother’s house. I always love a painted floor and lots of color.

Take a few of these ideas and incorporate them into your own home. Neutral walls, floors and upholstery are layered with colors to add warmth. Collections add interest and depth to the rooms. Antique beams, doors and knobs give the structure history and character. Add any of these to your home and see what a wonderful difference they can make. We can all learn from this talented designer. I have had a few questions about the builder—it was built by Futral Builders. The previous post can be seen outside here and inside here.

Open spaces add volume and interest to a home.

This small study at the top of the stairs also leads to a private patio.

This is a very cozy reading area. I love those blue and white paintings on the wall.



Details make all of the difference!



Bubbles and a glass of wine please—make mine pink champagne.

My morning routine just improved 100%.

The attention to detail can be seen throughout the house. I love this chest and mirror. Bailey runs this show.

    I’m hoping this house tour never ends. Can I say there is a distinctly
    southern flavor to this home? I could move right in. ❤️
