I love looking at houses, especially homes with great decor and design. This house, that belongs to a friend of mine, has wowed me for years. Now, she and her husband are preparing to downsize and have put their creativity infused home on the market. When I saw the beautiful listing photos, from Nolan at FSBO, I just knew I had to share them here.
From the refreshing sounds of the rock waterfall to the outdoor conversation area by the porch, this impressive two-story on the hill says "Welcome" before you even come through the front door.
But when you do step inside you will be greeted by this expansive and bright foyer.
I love how light floors give this space a fresh, uplifting feel.
As you look through to the generously sized dining room, you will be charmed by the copper toned ceiling, black and white stripes, and a floor to ceiling chalkboard wall.
The oversized windows throughout this house let the light shine in and allow beautiful views to the quiet cul-de-sac below.
I think the shimmering wall color in this living room is the perfect backdrop to the black and white color palette she is using. It feels very retro meets modern and coastal meets city.
Who wouldn't want to spend time here?
The white beams and wood ceiling give this cozy family room a casual coastal vibe that continues on in the cavernous screened in porch and bar area.
This has to be the perfect party spot for family and friends.
The warm finishes of the kitchen cabinets are the perfect compliment to the soft sea glass colored ceiling and the updated countertops and backsplash.
This beautiful kitchen boasts stainless steel appliances and a full wine bar.
The artwork, a Grant Wood print, is perfect in this space.
The beauty doesn't stop there. Look at this great breakfast nook that overlooks the lushly wooded and private back yard.
But what the photographer didn't show us, is what is above this table.
It is one of my favorite things in this house and only my artistic and creative friend could come up with this idea...
suspended from the ceiling is this wonderfully whimsical vignette.
Color me speechless. LOVE.IT.
This house just has fun written all over it.
Upstairs, there are four bedrooms and two full baths.
Look at this master suite. It goes on for days! What a spectacular retreat.
It is like going to the spa every time you shower.
I so enjoy being around creative people, and the woman that lives here is beyond inspiring and so is her home. I'm so glad she agreed to let me share it with you. I can't wait to see what she does in her new space.

Hurry, this one won't be around long.
