Featured Home for April 2009

I am featuring my sister's home this month which displays her Pennsylvania style living and a few room makeover ideas which should inspire you for that spring home project.

Quaint Pennsylvania architecture defines the setting as we tour my sister's traditional style home which is surrounded by a local golf resort community. The view from the garden room patio located on the second floor of the home overlooks the golf course, which she and her husband frequents. The lower level is an exercise room/wine cellar/lap pool/guest room combination. The top level is the master suite/offices/and guest room.
 Of course the featured room in the home is the kitchen/living area, which is rich in reds, turquoise and deep tans to compliment the walnut stained cabinets.
 This is a before picture of the kitchen/dinette area before she added the beautiful red/tan stripe to the seating area. Look at the picture again before this one, WOW, now it pops!!

The garden room patio, is on the second level mentioned above, which is screened in offering a comfortable setting to relax and view the golf resort grounds and her own personal gardens. The white wicker gives the feel of a fresh spring morning throughout the year.

Her home office setting is once again decorated with the reds and turquoise complimenting the wood in her furniture. The walls are painted a lighter shade of turquoise for a defining mix of interest. Carrying the color scheme throughout your home creates a smooth transition while allowing change in decor, accent colors, wall colors and fabric which adds interest and gives the room it's own individuality. In her husband's home office for example, she painted the walls a deep mocha color adding turquoise and brown dupioni silk drapes and accents, creating a more masculine feel to the room.
The lower level encompasses, the wine cellar/exercise room/lap pool patio/eating area and sitting room. The home has over 4,000 sq. ft, needless to say showing all of the lovely rooms would make this a never ending me it is all GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!

Sis, great job, keep the home fires burning, I plan to visit soon!!!!!!!!!!!

If you would like to be a featured home of the month, feel free to email me pictures and a description of your home project.
