Home tours are always fun to see, but beyond that they can also serve as a great motivator and source of inspiration when it comes to making your own home look and feel the way you want it to. If the lockdown has made anything crystal clear, it’s this: your home needs to be a place that helps you feel happy and comfortable. So I hope these gorgeous tours provide you with some inspiration (or at the very least, eye candy!). And if you you’re feeling stuck or don’t know where to begin, definitely shoot me an email – I’ve been doing virtual freelance design and styling consultations and would love to chat about how I can help you!
This Massachusetts home designed by Lilse McKenna was just published on House Beautiful, and it’s such a grandmillenial dream! Those patterned fabric lampshades make me so happy, and how cozy does that reading corner look?
I’ve followed Hanna Seabrook (aka @gadabout) on Instagram forever and always loved the little glimpses into her home that she would post, so I was REALLY excited when her home was published in Southern Living. I seriously love everything about it. It feels truly collected over time, and yet there’s a wonderful sense of flow and cohesion.
I think Erin Gates has a particular talent for designing what she calls “bachelorette pads,” and this latest one that she published on her blog only reinforced that for me! This beautiful Boston condo started out with great bones, and Erin took it to the next level with eye-catching modern art, a beautiful color story, amazing lighting, and a thoughtful design plan. The result is a sophisticated space that feels elegant and high-end, yet still comfortable and inviting.
I’d be surprised if anyone hasn’t seen this one yet, but just in case and because it’s so amazing, I had to highlight it here! Caroline Gidiere’s Birmingham home was published in Veranda back in February (feels like a lifetime ago), and everyone went wild for it. This space proves that traditional is anything but stodgy and boring – in fact the home feels fresh and exciting, and all of the many special details are just completely delightful. From the bowood sofa to the double pattern on the dining chairs to the incredibly beautiful hand-painted chinoiserie wallpaper, I could truly pick out probably twenty elements in each room that I’m obsessed with.
