Tour of Kristin's house

I want to thank my friend Kristin and her husband for letting me take pictures of every nook and cranny in her beautiful house to post on my blog.  They recently built a gorgeous hampton style home just steps away from the ocean and did this with mostly "green" materials.  I am in love with her decorating style, which is a perfect mix of beachy elegance and British colonial.  There is a mix of very high end furniture, antiques and some garage sale finds that have been transformed into one of a kind pieces.  Lets start with the outside of the house, she still has a few final touches to do like the landscaping and other odds and ends.  But the house looks fabulous from the outside with its circular windows, balconies and stone wall.

We sat on her porch sipping wine and chatting while basking in the sun.
This coffee table she found at a garage sale this morning, I can't wait to see what she is going to do with it!
 I love this beautiful teak bench with the blue and white pillows.
 The ponytail plants adds nice warmth to the porch.

Let's go inside!

As you enter, cluster of ginger jars, seashells and sea grass are displayed on a beautiful round table.

Also in the foyer is cabinet displaying her coral collection.

This is her daughter's bedroom, what a lucky little girl! This is an antique headboard that Kristin painted white and slightly distressed.  Great job!

Their master bedroom is so serene, yet it has doses of bold rich color on the rugs, zebra print bench which grounds the room.  While soothing colors on the wall and white curtains brings the calming feeling to this bedroom.  Wonderful balance of color!

 This is her spectacular kitchen she designed that is a perfect combination of classic and modern.  Kristin chose an ever classic white subway tiles for the backsplash so that her high end cabinetry takes center stage.  Not to mention the enormous nine foot island with its gorgeous statuary marble counter.

Collections of blue and white accessories are displayed thoroughout the house.

Well, these are all the photos I can show for today, I have to start on my ottoman project.  But, I will be posting more of Kristin's home tomorrow. I hope you come back and see her beautiful diningroom and livingroom photos, they are something see!
