Symmetry










I know I browse the real estate listings a little too much, but what can I say, I enjoy it. What caught my eye the instant I saw this home is the symmetry of it all. The home's facade and the garden seem so serene and orderly. Two things I always crave. After seeing such a gorgeous outside I always expect to be let down a bit with the interior, but this one has no disappointments. The gorgeous lighting and color palette are perfection. That kitchen ceiling, wow. The mirror hanging in the bath is truly stunning. The kids rooms also are simple and livable, but still quite lovely. Oh, and don't even get me started on the armoire in the top of the stairs den.

As always if you are in the market for a home and this one strikes your fancy be sure to email me and I will get you in touch with the listing agent.

So true about being disappointed about interiors after seeing gorgeous exteriors! This home is beautiful. (I have my 1st giveaway - please stop by!)

You are killing me with these Birmingham homes! My mind starts to race and then I remember they can't be mine! This is so pretty!

That backyard is amazing! I wonder if those patios are concrete or limestone. Beautiful!

The exterior is gorgeous. We don't have alot of character homes ( well at least in my price bracket! ) The builders make them all look the same ( boring! ) This is lovely! xx

paula, i'm totally with you. i've been craving simple, organized, clean interiors. i'm also thinking i need to leave chicago and move south.... i've loved all the homes you've highlighted!

love the front...email and tell me where it is? (I assume Mtn Brk but don't recall ever seeing it...the one you posted last time turned out to be almost across the street from me so maybe I'm just not being very observant!)

Wow, that place is amazing! I'm a sucker for real estate browsing too. I get lots of inspration (and what notto do!) from other people's houses.
