Traditional Charm House Tour

It’s time for another Dreamy Dwelling Home Tour.  This beautiful home has the essence of traditional charm, with a modern flair.  An open floorplan with gourmet kitchen and charming living area overlooking back yard and large covered patio make it completely dreamy.  Let’s not wait another second to walk through this Traditional Charm House Tour.

An asymmetrical style of architecture, English Tudor homes are inspired by the medieval architecture of Tudor England in the early 16th century.  Key elements in this style of home are steeply pitched roofs, decorative half timbering, and embellished doorways.

Beautiful landscape borders the walkway that leads to the spacious front porch.  I especially love those Boxwood Topiaries.

An area rug placed below the Adirondack chairs defines the outdoor porch space.

The brightness of the home throughout is quickly realized as we step into the foyer.


A few steps past the foyer brings us to an immaculate, oversized living room – kitchen combo.

Let me soak in every nook and cranny of this well designed kitchen.  On either side of the stove top are shelves for spices used while cooking.  The upper cabinets on either side of the sink have glass fronts, perfect for showing off pretty dishware.  Above the double oven is additional, most coveted storage.

Ceiling to counter windows connect the interior with the surrounding landscape.

It’s rare to find a designer like myself that appreciates the clean lines of recessed lights and opts out of hanging pendant lights above the large island.  The sconces on either side of the sink are perfect.

This oversized table doubles as eat-in kitchen and dining room with white and copper pendants for a centerpiece.

The clean design makes for a great mix with warm wood tones.

Symmetrical design cues effect our subconscious, even when they are too subtle to be consciously acknowledged at first glance.

All of us are drawn to balanced images and tend to think them more aesthetically pleasing than their off-kilter counterparts.

Incorporating exposed brick brings character and raw charm into any interior space.

Beyond the gorgeous furniture, some of my favorites in the den are the plain white cotton curtains, the fiddle fig, and the antlers hanging above the flat screen television.

Always fun to see a beautiful home with great style incorporate pieces that are affordable.  Anyone else recognize the gray Strandmon wing chairs from IKEA?

Laundry room is small, highly functional.

Dark paint is never my style, but I do love the white vase with exotic white flowers.


The luxury master suite is downstairs.  Again, not a fan of dark painted walls, but the white orante headboard is gorgeous.

White bedding with a periodic change in pillows is my master bedroom staple.

A sitting area in the master bedroom is defined by a beautiful cow hide rug.

White cotton curtains in the master suite as well.

Spa-like bathroom with chandeliers and a beautiful neutral palette.

Three bedrooms and a second living area upstairs.  I love how the homeowner creates cozy sitting areas in small spaces.

Dream room for any little boy.  Stairs lead to the top bunk with galvanized pipe and fittings as the guardrail.  Tons of space for playing and a private desk area next to the window.

The girls bedroom has black and white striped upholstery headboards and monogrammed euro pillows.

Jack and Jill bathroom with simple pedestal sinks help keep this space from becoming cluttered.

The gameroom upstairs is multifunctional with an area for watching movies, a game table, and a homework station.

Another IKEA piece of furniture, the Ektorp sofa with a chase lounge.  The gallery wall is perfection!

Along the back wall is more storage.

The covered patio is not huge, but each space is well defined making it very functional.  I love the curtains that protect against the setting sun in the afternoon.

A potting table, gorgeous wall clock, and my family’s favorite, a Green Egg.

A green door leading to the garage offers a pop of color in the backyard space.

Which is your favorite room in this house?
