Classic Family Home with Traditional Interiors

 

The homeowners loved their property, but had outgrown their house. After carefully weighing the pros and cons of extensive renovations and additions versus new construction, it became evident that a new family home was the right decision. Because they wanted to comfortably accommodate their growing family, their first concern was the function of spaces and the overall flow of the house. They preferred traditional design and detailing with fresh, clean finishes. The architects blended classic detailing with a contemporary layout. The house is sited to visually connect with the outdoor play area, and the family living spaces are focused toward the backyard and its views.

I hope you have a good time seeing this beautiful home!

 

Classic Family Home with Traditional Interiors

This stunning home was designed by Oak Hill Architects, with timeless architectural details.

Exterior Paint Color: Paint Color is “Benjamin Moore C2 Wood Ash”.

The wood shingles are cedar.

The front door is mahogany with a natural stain.

Porch

Is there anything more charming than a front porch? I could spend many sunny afternoons here, just talking to friends or reading a good book.

Traditional Entryway

This entryway feels traditional, but not too precious.

Note the casing on the side of the staircase.

Light fixture is the “Camden Collection Brass Finish Pendant Chandelier”. It’s classic and affordable!

Kitchen Design

This off-white kitchen has a classic design and it will look great for many years to come.

Pendants above island are the “Arch Top Lantern by E.F. Chapman”.

Eating Area

How beautiful! This is one of my favorite round tables!

Dining room table is the “Asolo Dining Table” by Arhaus.

Fireplace in the Eating Area

This fireplace is located in the kitchen, by the eating area. Isn’t it a great — and cozy– idea?

Traditional Details

Inspiring trim work!

Butler’s Pantry

This butler’s pantry even comes with a coffee area. I would love to have that! Well, who doesn’t love to be spoiled sometimes? 🙂

Kids Study Room

This is a great solution for kids to study efficiently together in one space.

Lighting is from “Seascape Lighting”.

Mudroom

If you like seeing your home organize, you need to offer plenty of storage space.. it’s a simple formula!

This completely custom designed mudroom is smart and well organized.

Backyard

The outstanding outdoor fireplace is made of “natural field stone”.

Patio Decor

Start welcoming Spring by taking your patio furniture outside and start enjoying the longer and warmer days. I can’t wait for that!

 

This home have a very nice feel to it. Its light color palette makes the entire house feel peaceful and calm… and who doesn’t like to live like that?

 Did you guys enjoy your weekend? It was great around here. I could spend some time with the kids and we had some friends visiting us. 

Another good thing that happened to me was a long talk I had with my mother. She’s one of the kindest person I know, but to be very honest, I wasn’t opening my heart for her (and anyone else for that matter) for a long time. You know when you talk to people you love, but these conversations are just plain conversations? You talk about your day, your work, family, but you never go deeper?

To be honest, since my grandmother started suffering with Alzheimer’s, I became a little more closed about my feelings. My grandmother was the person I always opened my heart to and I still do sometimes, but I don’t like to bother her anymore. It doesn’t seem to be fair.

With my mother it is a bit different. We’re very close, but I always felt my grandmother could not only talk to me, right here, but also to my “soul”. I would hear something and get calmer and many times, wiser. 

Today, after talking to my mom for hours, I could feel the same thing I felt with my grandmother. Even though everything is great at home, you will have your ups and downs. Today I was talking to my mom about something so simple and she simply told me I should not be afraid to “dance to the music”, and she’s completely right.

I am starting this week open to happiness. Let’s try to be a little less worried about everything!

In fact, everything in this word will carry pros and cons, life itself carries that. We simply can’t expect everything to be perfect and right. Sometimes all we really need to do is put some music on and dance! Quite literally!

Have a Blessed week, my friends.

 

with Love,

    Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts. To read from you is a wonderful moment, it moved my heart.

    Have a nice day!

    Hi Luciane,

    I read your blog daily & I love the photos you select to showcase. I often pin many of the images & as a result have honed in on my own personal taste; so thank you for the inspiration. I
    also want to thank you for sharing your personal thoughts. My children are grown now with kids of their own & my Mum passed several years ago. I miss the one person in my life who I could talk to especially when I need her the most. Life does throw us a curve ball sometimes but it helps just put a few words down to a complete stranger.

    Thanks for listening.

  3. Hi Barbara.

    It’s really nice to “meet” you! I am very happy you enjoy the blog… that makes me happy!

    I completely agree with you. Sometimes all we need is opening our heart and let all of its heaviness out to whomever is there to listen. Honestly, I think God put many “angels” in your lives to listen and deliver messages to us. That can easily happen with the strangers we meet.
    Be open and be strong!

    Keep in touch, Barbara!

    While I love the photos and the energy you put into researching for your blog, I appreciate the most, your words of wisdom. Thank you for sharing your conversation about your mother today, and the fact that you have come to a “new place” with her, since your grandma’s diagnosis with Alzheimer’s Disease.

    May your week be filled with love and happiness….don’t worry, be happy! Xoxo

    Yes you are correct . Sometimes we talk to someone for hours but only on surface . These kind of talks will not nourish our soul .
    even short talks with gooing deep inside can have great influence and can enrich us . It is like a vitamine . Anyway, whenever I do not find anyone to talk in deep , I start talking to God by writing to Him . He honestly reply me and at the end of writing the same feelings happen and it enriches me a lot .
    Take care,
    Ramak

    Lovely that you have those same feelings you have enjoyed with your grandmother, now with your own mother – you are Blessed. I like this house – my fave part is the cosy fireplace in the dining/kitchen area. Thanks for sharing 😀

    I’m so happy to read that you had such a good talk with your mother. That’s wonderful! This is a gorgeous home and I am so focused on Front Entry Doors and foyers right now that I immediately zoomed in on this one. Mahogany door inside and out with white trim sidelines. Might work here in Atlanta 🙂

    Bravo! I’m certain it worked “both ways!” I miss talking to my mom so very much now that Alzheimer’s has moved in. EnJOY the moments! franki

  10. Lu minha querida, não sei o que te aflige, mas o que posso te dizer – ao menos nesse momento – é que tenho percebido que, muitas pessoas, principalmente nós, mulheres, não sabemos quando e nem porque passamos a nos sentir desconfortáveis. E pior, mesmo quando nossa vida está cheia de vida, ou seja, quando as contas estão pagas, a saúde está controlada, a família é o porto seguro, os filhos já seguem o caminho, o emprego está garantido e o cachorro até já parece acostumado com a rotina. Então me pergunto: Não seria esse o problema? Será possível que consigamos manter sempre tudo na mais perfeita ordem, tudo funcionando feito um reloginho e, ainda ter que absorver todas as influências externas? Diante toda essa correria, essa roda viva, ainda assim consigamos reconhecer o nosso verdadeiro “eu”? Será que não perdemos alguma coisa durante o caminho? Por isso é preciso falar, sempre!
    Beijo amada,
