Enjoy this new feature of my friend Ann of On Sutton Place. I’ve added lots of new pics from her home tours, so enjoy the updates. She’s done 2 bathroom remodels this year!
My Feature Fridays lately seem to be on a roll with featuring traditional homes, which I know so many of you love too. I’m a traditionalist at heart myself and have so many pieces of classic furniture, even though I love mixing things up with a little contemporary too. But, today’s feature is Ann from On Sutton Place, who has a beautifully decorated home that is not a huge and new house, but one they have lived in since 1993, when they bought their home. After working on many projects around their house and making it their own, Ann has it looking so good. Classic and traditional, but with lots of warmth and character and that’s what I love seeing in homes. Nothing cookie cutter about this one so enjoy!
Anne started her blog years ago and also has an online shop selling handmade pillows and linens. She was an empty nester looking for something to fill her time when her children left home and that’s where blogging and sewing came in. Love her story!
Here’s the exterior of her lovely home.
She’s done a lot of DIY projects to make her home better than it was when she moved in.
Front porch wicker set up so pretty and ready for fall.
Lovely front foyer.
One project completed was ripping off the carpet on her stairs and refinishing them. I happen to love doing this and what a difference it makes to get rid of carpet on the stairs. One of the best things you can do to change your stairs is this!
The dining room is traditional as well with a Duncan Phyfe (I think I’m right on that one) table and chairs, so pretty.
The kitchen is clean white cabinets and she’s left the tile countertop for now and it fits in with her style just fine.
Very homey and cozy kitchen.
Ready for Fall.
Love this dish cupboard in a shade of navy.
Living room in blue and white.
New masterbath renovation with navy vanity.
Second bathroom renovation.
Lots of gardening going on too with abundant flowers and plants.
Nothing completes a home like the family dog!
I hope you enjoyed seeing Ann’s beautiful home. I love seeing homeowners taking what they have and making it their own and Ann has certainly done that too.
Love the pink bathroom!
The house is beautiful, you can really see efforts have been made! Thanks for sharing this Rhoda!
Have a fun weekend! I’ll check back to see the pictures!
Her home is warm, cozy, and classic. Thanks for sharing!
She has made the home look lovely, I also love her pillows and of course her little schnauzer (my Poppy is half schnauzer).
Thank you for sharing this home, I especially love the dining room.
I believe Ann’s lovely home is in Ohio. I’ve been a subscriber to her blog for a while now – love her sense of style, creativity and industry. Like you, Rhoda, she’s inspiring!

I love the way she incorporates the yellows and blues throughout her home in different shades. It creates a cohesiveness, yet each room definitely has its own character. Very clever use of color! Thanks for sharing, Rhoda!
Agree – blue and yellow done perfectly. With restraint but enough punch to be cohesive..,then letting it fly with the porch rug and kitchen island. My favorite use of that most homey, comfortable color combo.
Thank you for sharing this. I love all the yellow and blue!
On a separate note…you are going to LOVE The Biltmore. My husband and I were there in 2008. Don’t miss the architectural elements on the outside of the home itself. I loved it so much I used one of my husband’s photo’s on my main page of my blog. There are great photo opportunities there. I’m so jealous. Enjoy! http://www.flimsypi.com
Rhonda, every morning your blog is the first one I tune into. I LOVE it. You are such a joy.

I was so excited to see Ann and One Sutton Place featured today! I have only been following her blog for a few months but it’s a great classic site with very clever ideas. Her blog reflects that Ann’s heart is as beautiful as her home! Enjoy your trip to Asheville~it’s going to be a beautiful weekend in the Carolinas!
Love Ann’s beautiful home inside and out!! I’ve been a happy follower of her’s since she started her blog and I’m lucky to say I have many of her beautiful pillows in my home! Great feature!!
Findley, Ohio. love her home and would duplicate most of it for mine!

What a lovely and thoughtfully decorated home!

She’s a ‘picker’. Would do well with her own shop. And I would have to stay away to save $$$.
Would paint the front porch rails either the siding color or shutter color, at a minimum. And, remove the rails at the front door & middle section too. Add stone for a wide step entry, a pair of urns…..
Why? Enlarge the porch, make it the focal point away from the service court entry of the drive.
Some well sited evergreen shrubs on axis with views of neighbors, too, keeping the eye/heart within her beautiful space/world/realm.
Adore seeing her dog in the garden…..
Garden & Be Well, XO Tara
Where did she get the tan sofa? It looks so comfortable.
Thanks for sharing this classic and crisp home. It’s renewed my energy to stop waiting to find the perfect piece and instead just go along with what I have.
I love this home. So nice that she has not ripped everything out but make things look very nice with what she has.
So comfortable, sweet house!! I’ve got a few things from Ann – a table runner and some darling little Christmas stockings. They’re just so charming!
