Sneak Peek into an Extraordinary Home!

What happens when an extraordinary person whose creativity and tremendous joy for living is expressed in her home? Well, yesterday I had the pleasure of finding out when I of visited one of the most beautiful and unique homes I have ever seen! Here's just a sneak peak to start with.
Above, lions from Beacon Hill standing guard at this writing desk filled with mementos and treasures.
A pink glass ball, just so, setting off this gorgeous blue and cream striped sofa. I didn't notice it the first time I entered the room so it was unexpected fun to come across it the second time.

Hats on chairs remind the cats where to sit and where not to. Philippe Starck - yes, Queen Anne chair - no. Come back tomorrow for more of this whimsical and joyful home - there is so much more beauty to share. And, thank you to Wanda Crossley of Matthews House & Garden and to the wonderful homeowner for sharing it all with me! It was a privilege.

Lovely, light filled home! Many beautiful things in these rooms. I especially love the huge turquoise urns under the Parson's style table!

That is a beautiful home. I am always fascinated by how people decorate. I love how mixed up everything is yet it works. I really try and do that in my home.

I love it! Beacon Hill- is there a Boston connection?

Susie @ Maddie's Nest said...

Beautiful images. Love the unexpected chairs at the dining room table!

Boxwood Terrace said...

That is a show stopper of a living room. So pretty. I would not think to use pink painted walls in my own home, but it is so perfect in this space and the owner clearly knows what she likes. Thanks for sharing!

The first image told me this was going to be good...and it was. Such an interesting array of details.

I love the elements of designs to the walls with a whimsey touch to the art, like child art framed.

Ooooh, oh, oh!! I just love the terra cotta pavers that floor is fab!

Thank you for sharing they are inspiring
