You all loved this Feature Friday from 2014, so I’m sharing again. Please enjoy this tour of a pretty home in NC. It looks like Lauren is no longer blogging as of 2016, but her blog is still active so stop over and visit.
I’m back today with another great Feature Friday, introducing you to Lauren, who blogs at The Endearing Home. Lauren lives in NC and is a wife and mom to two twin teenage daughters and she loves to decorate her home. I love seeing Traditional style done well and Lauren does it very well, creating a soothing and calm oasis for her family. Her house is an open floor plan in many areas and she has done a beautiful job of maintaining a break in rooms, but it all flows wonderfully together.
Beginning in the foyer, Lauren added beadboard and molding to her hallway to create a nice architectural element. I love that little foyer table and vignette she put together with the lamp.
With a small checked drapes, her family room is very cozy and pretty. I love how the checks add a lot of interest to the room.
Her traditional style shines in accessories and the way she layers everything.
Beautiful fireplace mantel and artwork above.
And I love the natural fiber rug on the floor.
Looking towards the breakfast area and kitchen.
These 2 rooms are all open to each other, but Lauren has made it all flow.
Long peninsula separates the spaces.
She has a pretty white kitchen and darker countertops and this is a very warm kitchen.
Kitchen island and breakfast area with nice large bay windows.
Next is the dining room with a French Country feel.
Pretty creamy white French country hutch.
Such a pretty space.
Open floor plan flows back to the living room.
And this is another cozy space. Love how she arranged the furniture in here for this room with a lot of windows. Notice how she has a piano, but it’s not so noticeable with the large framed art above and reads almost as another fireplace.
Lots of books on the coffee table and a cozy corner for reading.
Layered rugs make for a warm room.
Love the tobacco basket on the wall.
An overall look at the living room. Those big windows are so nice.
A guest room in blues and whites is very soothing.
That’s all of Lauren’s home tour for now, but I’m sure she will be adding more as she goes along with her decorating. What a beautiful home, isn’t it? I knew you would enjoy seeing Lauren’s The Endearing Home and you can see her entire home tour on that link. Hope you’ll stop by and say hello!
