Ohhhh my goodness! I have been so excited to share this home and blog with you my friends! I've mentioned before that Instagram is one that I avoided when it became the next big thing -- but when I finally broke down and joined in…I fell in love. It can be overwhelming at times so I take breaks from all of the images at times, but wow, I absolutely LOVE the inspiration I have found there.
One of my favorites is Kathleen of Lindsay Hill Interiors. She is a designer who creates beautiful spaces for others, but her home is just as stunning. You know the saying the cobbler's children have no shoes? Well I know first hand that happens a lot in design -- I didn't have time to tackle my own home when I was decorating the homes of others. (And that's one of the reasons I stopped doing it.)
But Kathleen's home…it is a stunner. I am so thrilled to share it with you. Her kitchen is the first space I saw that made me fall in love:
As much as I love all white kitchens I think if you're not careful they can feel cold easily. Her pops of color, wood floors and vintage touches make it a beautiful and warm space.
Of course I love her dark gray doors throughout her home as well -- the contrast warms things up and adds to the character:
And that tile! Love!
Kathleen's family room is just as beautiful. She made these slipcovers herself, what talent!:
I'm a sucker for green, black and white -- that combo is so fresh to me.
Her dining area doesn't disappoint, of course! You'll never believe what those upholstered chairs looked like before! She painted them:
I've seen this done a lot lately and I'm always shocked at the result!
Here's another shot this space looking into the family room. So much beautiful architecture, I love every bit:
What you don't see from that view is her STUNNING fireplace. It's such a simple design but the trim and tile and of course, window seats flanking it put it over the top:
If you are on Instagram you NEED to follow Kathleen there. This is just the hint of her talent! You can stalk her account like me, no shame. ;) (While you're there you can check out mine too.)
She shared this shot there the other day and again -- I love her simplicity. I'm not a fan of a ton of stuff when decorating and she really shows that classic design and simple touches are what make a space:
Go check out Kathleen's site here -- you won't be disappointed! Be prepared to drool. :)
Have a great weekend my friends! We're celebrating my boy's ninth birthday! Can you believe it?? I can't. Have I mentioned my brother, husband, son, nephew and grandbaby all have birthdays within the first two weeks of December? Yeah. We are busy and thankful.
