Shabby Chic Home Tour

Shabby Chic Home Tour

Gorgeous Shabby Chic home with loads of  decorating ideas!

Hi Friends! I am going to share a treasured memory with you today… it’s a a Shabby Chic house tour. When I photographed this home four years ago, I was pretty new to blogging and taking pictures. I found this amazing home when I was driving down the street one day. The garden alone stopped me in my tracks and I had to meet the owners of this gorgeous place and ask for a tour.

They couldn’t have been nicer and they revealed to me that strangers would frequently pull up and ask to see the house(!) so I wasn’t alone.

The Garden

Cindy and Steve’s garden is lush and welcoming. Fun touches include mirrors placed amidst the foliage… as well as china plates!
