…and my boy’s raingutter bookshelf bedroom (with Rhoda’s infamous beadboard wallpaper of course)!
For those of you who don’t know me, I am Beth from The Stories of A to Z soon to be Home Stories A to Z. I live in Pennsylvania with my hubs, two little boys, and pomeranian pup. We live in the city in a 100 year old rehabbed “twin”. Unfortunately, I don’t have any before pictures of our place but it was atrocious!
We have exposed brick running everywhere throughout our home. It adds a ton of charm and character but is difficult to decorate. Drilling into brick takes masonry bits and careful planning!
I have been following Beth since she started her infamous Mantel Parties. From there on she has always inspired me to look beyond the ordinary and go with my heart when it comes to decorating and projects. It is never a dull moment at her blog. Thanks, Rhoda, for having Beth over on your blog!

Beth’s home is beautiful! Love the exposed brick walls. Looking forward to the series.
Rhoda, the porch makeover turned out lovely!

Beth, I love your home, what an elegant look you have while still being cottage – y! I’m a coastal girl too, and don’t think I could ever live anywhere else, so I like that you use those touches in every room. And, exposed brick, who wouldn’t like to decorate around that. I have seen similar homes to yours being decorated on HGTV, but it was nice to see a more intimate look into your home, thanks Rhoda.

I’ve been following Beth for several months now since I started my blog, and she is how I found you! She is absolutely darling and it seems Rhoda that birds of a feather really do flock together! So delighted to find you, and I’m not even all that far from you in real life…just a couple of short hours right up I-85! Can’t wait to come back more and find out more about you and your fantastic endeavors!

I think I discovered Beth by seeing her blog button on your “A+ blogs” page. She is now a daily read! Beth is very creative and genuine. It’s easy to understand how you two became friends. You have much in common.

its just lovely! makes me want to stop over for a cup of tea and just chat decor! and my sister (Lauren Giles) is ever so grateful for Beth b/c she recently had a bed bug invasion and Beth was soooo sweet to walk her through what to do. LOL So not only does she have a beautiful home she’s quite resourceful. LOL

I am especially excited to read this blog today. I just love the garden stone backsplash. I recently have been thinking about how I can make our backsplash unique, now you’ve inspired me! Thank you for sharing!

Nice place Beth. I love what you did with the living room. I too love decorating and redecorating my house something with the sea on it – because I’m a proud Pisces. I incorporate shells and fish figurines to my designs. But I’ve been having a hard time finding some good corals. Some say it’s illegal to take out corals (even the small ones) from the sea. I’m not so sure about this.
Last summer, I applied a sun-beach wallpaper to my kids’ playroom. I love the sea and the ocean.

I recently started following Beth. I love her style.
I also absolutely love exposed brick. So jealous she has that in her place. It might be a pain to hang things on, but it sure does look purty 😉

All the best,
