What I love about my home!

I am thrilled to participate  and join in on Karla’s cottage party. My home is located in a historic district and neighborhood, and was built in 1927. It has a Mediterranean-Italian look to it. However, the inside is decorated in an eclectic mixture of Victorian,Shabby Chic, and Romantic Cottage. I’ve been collecting Romantic Homes magazine for about 10 years now when I was single gal and living in a one bedroom apartment in Atlanta. It was my dream to one day own a home that would be truly "romantic" on the inside, and I was thrilled beyond belief when Romantic Homes featured my house in the May 2005 and January 2007 issue. "Please come inside….WELCOME!!!!!

I LOVE my dining room. It’s in the sunniest part of the house. With large big windows. The walls are a pale lavender, and the slip cover chairs are lavender and white stipe.

The powder room is decorated in black and white. The orginial tile is black and white. So I kept with the theme.

My garden room is a very romantic spot. My hubby and I will light candles at night, and have a glass of wine and a romantic dinner.

Hi Sweet Jenn! Ok, I have to pick myself up off of the floor, AGAIN, after being treated to a virtual treat of your home. What can I say? It is a home that is incredible, stunning, tasteful, delicious, delectable, brilliant and oh-so incredibly perfect. Each and every room has it’s own style, yet they all seem to flow so beautifully together. Can I just buy your house with everything in it? I would you know! What a treat…total eye candy is right. Love it. No wonder you have been featured in some of my favorite mags.

Becky
