Traditional Home with Inspiring Interiors


Designed by the very talented Jan Geysteen Architects Inc., this traditional home is inspiring inside and out.

Filled with traditional accents, this home features a stylish and thoroughly livable interior. A covered entry and spacious foyer fronts a classic dining area. Walking down the hallway, you will find a meticulously designed staircase and the public living spaces including a large traditional white kitchen with an expansive island and nearby eating nook, family room, powder room and a dream mudroom with plenty of storage for all the family members. The right side of the house includes a sunny covered porch with fireplace and expansive views of a flat backyard — perfect for kids or pets.

This is the kind of home that’s easy to picture yourself living in. Take a look and dream away!


Traditional Home with Inspiring Interiors

What a curb-appeal! I love the gambrel roofing and the gray shingles. Classically designed.

Front Door Decorating ideas

A charming covered entry creates charm and interest to the entry.

Front Entry

As soon you enter this home you can feel its elegance and it’s calmness.

The interior designer, Kate Coughlin, chose soft colors to play against the neutral color scheme.

Chandelier is by “Currey & Co”.

Traditional Staircase

This traditional staircase is sublime. I really like the millwork, the custom spindles and the curved bottom steps.

Bright White Kitchen

Who doesn’t love a classic white kitchen, right?

The accent tile over the cooktop is the “Timeless Thassos 1″ marble mosaic from AKDO.

Traditional White Kitchen

Kitchen Countertop Ideas: The island counter is mahogany with a custom stain and the perimeter countertop is Caesarstone.

Eating Nook

I am a big fan of eating nooks, especially sunny ones. This is perfect for family living.

Light Fixture: This is the “E.F. Chapman Classic Ring Chandelier”.

Family Room

This family room is all about comfort! Note the stunning windows and arched transoms.

Powder Room

You won’t be bored in this powder room!

Wallpaper is from Osborne and Little.


How dream is this mudroom?! Each member of the family has its own (separate) cubbies.

This mudroom is set between the kitchen and dining room (to the left) and the garage (to the right) with the breakfast room behind.

The wood on the benches is oak.


This backyard is perfect for kids! I can picture them running around… and how about summer parties? You can invite the whole family over for a BBQ! :-)


Sunday afternoons can get a little lazier here… :-)


I have a question for you today: — What makes a house feel more like a home in your opinion?

 We stayed in for most part of the weekend due a crazy snow storm that is still going on… with one exception, I had to drive yesterday after dinner to buy some vanilla ice cream and some brownies. Why this weather makes me crave  chocolate even more? :-)

Wishing you all a very Blessed, Happy and Safe week!

A big Hug to each and every one of you!

with Love,
