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.

What a lovely home! Her black eyed susans are gorgeous!
It’s been years since I was at Barnsley Gardens and the Biltmore – I think my high school senior was in a stroller! Take lots of photos for us to see and have a wonderful weekend!
Thanks for sharing Anne’s house… I love her decorating style!
Have a great trip to Ashville and take lots of pictures. Hopefully you’ll post more pictures of Parker with Lauren and your family before she returns home.

Enjoy your trip to Asheville. I want to go there this time of year but it just doesn’t happen. Maybe next year. You must go sometime and stay at The Inn at the Biltmore if you haven’t already.

Thanks for featuring Ann’s home gorgeous home today. She is amazingly talented, and I’m happy to say I have a few of her pieces in our home. Everything that she does is just perfection. Have a happy weekend, Rhoda and Ann! 🙂
Thank you so much Rhoda for featuring my home today! I so appreciate your kind words and generous spirit. I live in Ohio and the past few days have been so nasty. I have high hopes the weather will improve for the weekend. Have a good one and again, many thanks! Warm Regards, Ann

Beautiful! Thanks for sharing!
Love seeing this home. I could move right in. It is so refreshing to see a home like most of America lives in decorated so beautifully. I wish Ann was my neighbor. Simply refreshing! Way to go Ann. Will be following your blog. Thanks for sharing this one Rhoda.
I love this home, and I can see that Ann is an accomplished decorator, and a talented photographer/stylist as well.. I love everything she’s done and wouldn’t change a single thing.
I was so surprised to see that one commenter offered uninvited suggestions for “improvement”. What!?!
I have read so many bloggers who’ve curbed what they share because of unwelcome comments.
I will be checking out Ann’s blog, as I am quite challenged to decorate my home cohesively and effectively. I know what I like when I see it, but am not really sure how to get to “After” from “Before”. But I must say I take a lot of inspiration and information from our dear Rhoda.
Have a great weekend, Rhoda!
Loved this home! It is just my style!

Rhoda – Thanks so much for featuring such beautiful traditional homes. I have been reading your blog since your Birmingham days. I have enjoyed watching your home transformation as well and stories about your family. Precious!
A fine home and beautifully decorated. I like the tile counter tops in the kitchen along with the tiled bathroom. Nice to see that not everyone is ripping them out.
This home is a classic. <3
Absolutely love Ann’s style, home, creativity and her talent. Stunning home…..thank you for sharing!

Love what this family had done with this older home. It is absolutely beautiful and decorated so lovely. I can see they had a great vision and what a wonderful transformation. Thanks for sharing.
