Traditional with a Twist: Local House Tour

Today I have such a pretty house tour to share with you! I met Linda through my sale in September. She purchased a few things from me afterwards, and I got to peek at her home when I went to drop them off. I couldn't believe what a gorgeous house she had! A few months later I asked if I could photograph her home for the blog, because I knew you all would love to see it!

Linda's home is very traditional but with fun, artistic touches. Linda is so creative, and I loved seeing everything she could come up with! The home was built in the 70s, but was custom-built by a woman with great taste who used salvaged marble, wide moldings, deep windows, ceiling beams and hardwoods for a very classic feel.

Linda's table was set for Thanksgiving. I loved her centerpiece of simple grapevine, hedge apples and dollar store black birds. Perfect!

Linda is the creative force behind Lizzie Kate, a cross-stitch design company she and her husband run out of their home. She just has that creative knack, not to mention business sense and an entrepreneurial spirit. I so enjoyed learning more about everything she has accomplished!

Her family room is so cozy! I love her buttery leather couch and the pine coffee table. It was a good reminder to buy classic pieces that will last. Everything I pointed out that I loved she would say, "oh I bought that years ago!"

I adored her coffee table. She said she brought it back from Arizona several years ago. She found it while on a missions trip, and it traveled back to Kansas in the back of the church bus. Sounds exactly like something I would do! : )

Her shelves are darling, filled with the perfect mix of classic and interesting elements.

I love the way she covered books with brown paper. So fun!

This reproduction pine table in her kitchen was another favorite of mine. Don't you love the chartreuse on the walls?

Linda has quite a collection of tole trays throughout the house. They make such a statement all together. I love these petite versions hung on a small wall space in the kitchen.

Linda did the chalk design freehand. Can you believe it?

I loved her thankful tree, ready for the holidays ahead.

More tole trays in the beautiful foyer.

If you love this house...good news! They are building so it's up for sale! I would move in tomorrow if I could : )

Isn't Linda so pretty? She's one of those classy, fashionable gals you just want to be friends with. Thank you so much, Linda, for letting me tour your home! I loved every second!
