Today’s Feature Friday is another blogger/designer who I found and loved her style on Instagram. Kathleen with Lindsay Hill Interiors does beautiful work and her own home is a stunning Craftsman. Hailing from Utah, she and her husband have bought and and lived in 13 houses. Some were renovated and some built from scratch, so all of that expertise has honed her self-taught design style, which Kathleen describes on her blog as clean, pretty, fresh, and elegant, with lots of pops of fresh color against a simple neutral background. She’s the mom to 5 children and 7 grandchildren and stays busy as a home stylist and interior designer for others. I think you’ll agree, Kathleen is very talented. I love her choices in this newly built Craftsman style home.
Edited to add: Thought her name was Lindsay, but it’s actually Kathleen!
If I was choosing a new home today, Craftsman style would be at the top of my list too. I love the mix of materials and the details on these homes. This one is so pretty with the rocks and natural landscaping in the front yard.
Inside the front door is a pretty slipcovered settee. This home tour was from last Fall, so you’ll see touches of Fall on here.
Using a door as a pretty prop.
The living room, open to the kitchen is so welcoming and pretty. Even though Kathleen uses lots of white, she’s not afraid to add color.
Pretty and classic fireplace with penny tile.
I love all the extra details in this home, like these Craftsman columns and builtins going down the stairs.
Additional simple moldings make all the difference in a home, don’t they?
Side table and accessories looking towards the kitchen.
Love the pop of green bar stools and her greenery accents.
Notice that she painted all her interior doors black, a feature that I did in my own home and love. Black adds a nice grounding factor.
Dining room with a beautiful view.
I adore this piece of furniture and wondering if Kathleen painted it like this. It is stunning with the gold details, yet looks like it could be a vintage piece that she found. This is absolutely gorgeous to me, her dining room buffet.
Green plates on the wall add some color.
Her office and craft space is very nice.
Another vintage piece painted and accented with yellow on the back.
What a lovely way to hide and use wrapping paper.
An organized mudroom.
And a spacious and clean laundry room. Isn’t this nice?!
The master bedroom is also spacious and pretty. Notice the board and batten molding on the headboard wall.
What a gorgeous room, with the sitting alcove nearby.
The master bath is classically done as well, with marble floors and a beautiful tiled shower.
Pretty herringbone pattern on the floor.
And a pretty clawfoot tub to set it all off.
Downstairs, a guestroom is set up for company.
And those 7 grands need a place to sleep.
A reading/play are for the kids is nice to have.
Guest bath with stencils on the wall make this a pretty retreat.
I think you’ll agree that Kathleen has a stunning and well decorated home. Stop over to Lindsay Hill Interiors to see all she has to share!
Atlanta has a great design presence and there is a multitude of designer showhouses throughout the year. I first went to Cathedral Antiques show a couple years ago and visited the showhouse that was designed by different local designers and enjoyed it very much. This year was a little different, in that St. Philips Episcopal Church was open for the antique and flower show, which they hold every … Read More»
You've probably a heard about body shapers in the last few year and they really have caught on with so many women now. I have always had a pet peeve about panty lines showing in pants and try to not let that happen to me by wearing the proper shapers underneath, but there's also other areas that can show bumps and bulges in our clothing that we'd like to hide too.
Namely: Back fat and muffin … Read More»
If you've been reading my blog for long, you know that I dearly love to shop secondhand for vintage and older pieces of furniture. There has been a huge surge in that market in the last 10 years, but I have been shopping that way for much longer than that. When I first set up house and started shopping for furniture, I had heard about antiques, but always thought they were way out of my price … Read More»
Travel is in my blood and I dearly love to see new places in this beautiful world of ours. The Carnival cruise on the Breeze was so much fun! Really, a once in a lifetime experience and I'm so glad I got to partake in such a lovely trip. I took one of my girlfriends with me, Beth, from Orlando. We have traveled together before and always have a good time together.
Both of us flew to Miami … Read More»

I get many comments from those of you in other countries and I think it's so fascinating to see how other people live. We're all more alike than we imagine. When I got an email from Susan, sharing her French country house that she and her family live in, I knew my readers would … Read More»
Valentines Day is meant for sharing love with those people in your life who mean the most to you, so it's a well celebrated holiday that sometimes can be so commercialized.
I will fully admit that for the last few years, I have completely skipped over Valentines Day and all the sentiments that the day brings. I've really just ignored it, because when you don't have a special someone in your … Read More»
I'm back today with Fashion over 50 and a sweater you've seen before, mixed with a new pair of skinny corduroy pants that I got recently. I love Winter White and figured that these cords would be a good addition to my Winter wardrobe.
I paired them with this striped coral and cream sweater that I picked up last year on sale at Chico's. I've enjoyed it and the hit of color this time of … Read More»
