Traditional with a Twist















This stunning home I found while browsing our local real estate listings. The decor is quite traditional, but with the muted tones it feels quite fresh and young. The lack of clutter helps too. I would say this fits my style to a tee. So much so I would be more than happy to move right in without changing a thing, love that.

Paula, this reminds me so much of one of my favorite homes from Cottage living. I wonder if it is the same decorator of if the owners of the house in CL moved into this place....I am going to try to find that magazine!! Love it!!!

This is beautiful. I think my favorite thing throughout is the lighting - there's nothing harsh, and there are fabulous shadows all over the place.

BTW - glad to see someone else stalks Bham MLS like I do! --Katy

I just found you via pure style....I think I'm rather smitten! Love the house. Love the vibe!

Marija said...

I have to agree -I'd move in and hardly change a thing. Okay, I'd relocate that lucite table - for something that's transparent, it's oddly distracting in this space. Other than that, I'm in love!

Stalking real estate listings are the best- there are so many great houses out there for sale and this one is no exception- I love it!

I am curious what a home like this costs in your area?

Lucky Punk said...

Me too! On the moving in. It's perfect.

Shannon @ Sit.Relax.Gossip. said...

Wow! It's so rare to find houses on real estate listings that I would move into as it, but this is definitely one! I hope whoever ends up buying this place asks if they can get all the furniture too.

Blueprint Bliss said...

Erica at DECORICA said...

Wow, great find Paula! Loving this house, it is so pefect, yet causual. I might steal the idea of those huge botanical prints in the bathroom. Just. Beautiful.

Tiffany Hope said...

Ooh, I like this house! I would just slap some colored paint on the walls. ;)

Erin from Skoots and Cuddles said...

For those who were curious this home is going for $829,900. A 3 bedroom and 3 and a 1/2 bath. It is in one of the best/prestigious towns in Birmingham.
