Southern Living Showcase Home

I received an e-mail from Southern Living this week, 
informing me that their first Showcase Home in the Houston area 
will be open for touring this weekend and next!

The incredibly talented brother-sister team of Stone Acorn are the builders of this southern beauty.

I love love love all things with Southern Living charm, and can't wait to tour this home. So, until I can share my own pics, here are some taken by this website during the last stages of construction.

everything about this home is inviting!

this room had me at beamed ceilings and brick fireplace.

we all love these barn doors.
and look at that mudroom! sigh.

farmhouse sink. check.
fabulous cabinetry. check.
black honed countertops. check.

 lovely paneling and wall color. so soothing!

at first i thought the build out of the benches was strange...
but I bet it allows for much more leg room beneath a table than a typical bench.

 complete with your own personal potting area! 

I love everything about this house! It has gracious Southern style and so much personality.  Hopefully I can take my own pictures on the tour when the rooms are decorated to perfection!  If you live in and around Houston, you should definitely make the drive in for this tour.

100% of the Southern Living Showcase ticket proceeds go to the 
Houston Center for Literacy and the Friends of the Bellaire Library.

  2. How beautiful! I wish I could go with you! :)

  3. One interesting and fundamental part of the Southern culture is their patios and porches. Ideally, their houses are built with a warm and inviting front porch. It mirrors the hospitability of Southern people. Furthermore, those barn doors brought such a traditional chic to that two-storey house.

  4. My absolute favorite is the empty room with the paneling. Do you know what color the walls are? So incredible!!!

  5. Just nominated you for the Liebster Award! Make sure to stop by and check it out!


thank you for your sweet comments! i hope you enjoyed your time at a peace of home today.
