Feature Friday: Imparting Grace

One of my very sweet blog friends, Richella with Imparting Grace is my guest today and wait til you see her beautiful Southern home in North Carolina.  It’s another dream home, full of love and family and beautiful furnishings, but I can just tell that it’s a house that is cozy and warm, even though it looks quite large.  Richella has done an outstanding job making her house a home and I know you’re going to love it too.

Richella is a wonderful Christian friend and I’ve so enjoyed getting to know her in blogland.  She is as dear as they come.


From the outside, it’s quite impressive with the columns, stonework and beauty.  Not to mention those big garages, that’s nice to have.

front entry

Coming up to the front porch, which is all stone (wow, love that!), see that porch tucked away to the right.

front porch

What a nice and cozy spot to sit and enjoy the outdoors under cover.

family room

Inside the family room has a nice bank of doors and windows letting in lots of light.

cross collection family room

Notice the arched doorways and all the beautiful crown molding and trimwork.  Richella’s collection of crosses are on this wall.

FR fireplace

The fireplace in the family room is cozy and this looks like a great spot to hang out.

view to dining room

Notice the built ins and the arched door frames.  Just stunning!

blue dining room

Richella recently repainted her dining room from red to this vivid blue and I just love it.

With her beautiful Karastan rug and white woodwork, that blue just pops.


Her kitchen is one big space with a large breakfast table in the room as well.

island and work area

Oven wall and huge island is so dreamy.

What a gorgeous kitchen!

kitchen desk area

With a built in desk space in the corner too.

master bedroom

The master bedroom is cozy in green and blue. Richella sewed the pillows and coverlet.


She’s a smart cookie and does lots of DIY projects at home.

master bath tub

Large master bath with a corner tub and that’s a painting of Richella above.

guest room

She recently refreshed her guest room too and it looks so pretty.

bonus room

With 3 boys, Richella really needs a bonus room and this one over the garage is a nice one.

screen porch

Now this space could really make me envious, a beautiful screened porch high up in the trees.  Look at that, looks like a tree house!


This is where I’d be spending a ton of time.

I know you enjoyed this tour of Richella’s home as much as I did.  I hope you’ll go over to Imparting Grace and take a look around.  You will love Richella and her sweet self!

  13. WOW. you had me at the front porch…and then the bold use of color, which I love (I have the same color on the walls in my kitchen) kept me wanting more and the cherry on top is most definitely the screened porch.
