Feature Friday: Dixie Delights Southern Home

Meet Amanda, from Dixie Delights.  She is a mom to two cute boys and lives in the Atlanta area in a late 60’s house, which when you see it, you won’t believe it is a 60’s house at all.

Here’s what Amanda says about her family:

A few years ago my husband and I returned to the Atlanta neighborhood he grew up in to raise our own boys.  Our home is forty-four years old and was love at first sight – we call it our “forever home”.  We’ve spent the last three years making it our own.  He finished our entire basement by himself, watching YouTube videos and reading how-tos, while I taught myself to sew drapes, skirt tables and upholster chairs.  Hailing from Savannah, I adore all things coastal and have used colors reminiscent of the marsh and beach I grew up on throughout our home.

This week, I’m not going to add a lot of words, but just enjoy Amanda’s beautiful Southern home.
