A PRETTY HOUSE

Well…..these are certainly somber times for us right now.  

I feel like I had a bit of a head start knowing what I have been dealing with for the last 6 months.  Meaning I have been working hard to keep my  spirits up.

I am also not watching the news 24/7 like most of you because along with giving us the facts there is an underlying hysteria that goes along with it…..and I don’t need that.

But….what I have noticed is that SPRING has NOT been cancelled…..and people are spending more time with their families!  Cami is certainly happy as I have spent more time at home…..and I have gotten thru a bunch of paperwork.  

I keep saying I am going to clean out some closets but I choose to wait until there is absolutely nothing left to do but that:) 


About 2 weeks ago I was honored to be invited  to a small gathering.  Y’all this house was so pretty….perfectly curated….I found myself studying every inch.


I did take a bunch of crappy Iphone pictures….I say that because it was at night with all the lights on so you know those aren’t the best conditions for photography.

I don’t know how I figured it out but his house was recently featured in Luxe magazine so I am sharing the better pictures augmented with mine today and I know you will want to high five me [well that’s not really allowed any more but virtually I mean]  after seeing these!

This home was built in 1911….and Don Easterling  and his partner are only the 4th owners.

Don….along with his design partner of 10 years Nina Nash gave this home a fresh approach to traditional!


You enter the front door to the right and the dining room takes your breath away.

Opposite is the living room…..


Right off the LR is this sunroom…..

The floors are painted black and white….you had me there Don….:)

Another gorgeous space on the main level is the family room…..Those brown walls….hubba hubba


I can’t believe there were no pictures of the kitchen…..so I am glad I took a few.


The keeping room off the kitchen.


And this porch.



Now let me charm you with some of my pictures…..clearly the quality will not match the previous:)

The master bath….designed by Matthew Quinn.


The kitchen

This hood is everything!



And I took a few images from Nina’s Instagram page….

The back of the house….



So….thoughts?  Words like…. timeless, classic and fresh come to mind. 

It is the kind of design that will still be relevant in years to come.

Well…I hope you guys stay safe….I wish only the best for all of you.
