Shabby Chic Home Tour
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.
Cindy and Steve’s garden is lush and welcoming. Fun touches include mirrors placed amidst the foliage… as well as china plates!
Don’t you love the plates?
I love how Cindy finds a way to repurpose everything, even a chair!
It’s cool to see all the be achy/nautical themed stuff.
This chippy metal chair is one of my favorite things.
What a neat idea and use for shells.
So pretty, right?
Look at all the fun stuff on the mantle…
Cindy made the flags herself!
These guys were the first people I knew that collected sand from vacation spots. I think they started the trend!
The couple collects vintage wedding cake toppers… so romantic.
A towel bar for necklace storage and display… so smart!
Stacks of fun sparkly things!
Shelves double for nightstands… what a great use of limited space.
A ceiling is covered in a giant map and a chandelier adds light and shimmer in the guest room.
Delicate paper flowers bloom all year around!
In the den, ribbons add whimsy to a lamp shade.
And finally, look at this sweet chalkboard that Cindy made into a sign:
Thanks, Cindy and Steve, for letting us visit your warm and wonderful home!
