I’ve been saving this home tour for a while. It almost feels too precious to post, but I went around the place taking pictures with the purpose of sharing the home’s charm. In a beautiful neighborhood near the University of Virgina, nestled in what I consider a forest (my fiancé says he was the only one of his friends who lived in the city. This is living in the city? Homes on hills with the tallest trees I’ve ever seen! Then again, I grew up in Miami), rests the gem home I stayed at while attending the perfect barn wedding I described in the post, Cupcakes & Moonshine. It’s my fiancé’s mother’s house, all decorated and maintained with her exquisite taste.
What could be better than going to the country for a lovely wedding and then staying in the “city”? Not much. The house is so ideal for snuggling up with a good book, that it was somewhat hard to decide to go out for a stroll, but once you’re outside the majestic trees, lively ivy and friendly neighbors remind you why you went out for a bit.
I’m no interior designer, but I’d say I always have an eye for a style I like. This place was a cloud to stay in. On top of the antique or French country furniture rested large coffee table books with pictures of white living rooms, pots of white orchids and more books about Audrey Hepburm than I could count. Picturing the style yet?
See for yourself. Enjoy the home that reminds its guests of orchids and Christmas.

People don’t understand that type of person, so they put them into classifications, thinking that everyone who […]
Susan J. Fowler, a former employee of Uber, published a post on her blog revealing numerous counts of sexual harassment and discrimination she experienced while working for the company. Her post is straightforward and pretty bias-free; her tone is calm, but frank. While some of her experiences at the company might appall readers, her author’s […]
