Open House Sunday

Large Prairie Style House
in Putnam Heights in Oklahoma City
built 1920
Great big steps lead up to a large covered porch.
This home has a casual feel to it.
Colorful touches through out.
 This dining room is fun. I like everything except that table in front of the window.
The kitchen is full of color too. 

This family definitely has it's own style.

 Very tasteful bath.
cute baby room 
Absolutely love the gray subway tile! 
 I don't think this garden room is reaching it's full potential by far.
I'd love to have a room like this at my own home.
This is my favorite spot in this home.
The whole backyard is just lovely.
A perfect place to spend a late summer day.

Jersey Belle - Danielle's House

Are any of you watching Jersey Belle on Bravo?
 I hate to admit that I am. 
I didn't think I would but it has grabbed me.

The main character - Jaime is a successful celebrity publicist who moved
to Alabama when she met and married her southern husband.

The show is about her and her group of southern girlfriends.
But the thing that made me stop and and pay attention immediately was seeing her girlfriend, 
Danielle Yancey's house.
That's Danielle, she looks like a model...perhaps she used to be one.
I fell in love with the inside of her home and went looking for more information on it, online.
I thought it surely was a grand ol' historic home of Alabama.
A search quickly led me to the website of the home's architects.
I just knew that on this site I'd learn about the restoration of their home.
Nope! Instead I found the architectural renderings for this home.
The Yancey's already had a house in this neighborhood and wanted a larger one.
This new one involved raising the roof on their existing home.
This is the original home!
An amazing transformation. 
The Yancey's told the architects they wanted a home with the 
feeling of a tuscan villa.
This is the brick structure under the stucco.
Every detail is so beautiful in this home.
From the light fixtures and hardware to the decor choices.

The kitchen was the first room that caught my attention.
The rough wood shelving is really inspired.
This light fixture was once a chicken feeder.
monogrammed napins
curtains appear to just be lengths of burlap
One of the specifics when the Yanceys were building this house was that
it be very dog friendly. They have two labs with full run of the house.
What a sweet face!

love the colors in this bedroom
I'm assuming this is the master
That's a very interesting headboard.
This house has just the right mix of shiny and rough, doesn't it?
master bath has matching sinks and furniture inspired cabinetry 
very spa like
