You know that love at first sight moment,
whether it be an inanimate object or a human being.
Well on this day, it was this home for me. The 2015 Southern Living Idea Home.
It had me at the copper lantern hanging on the front porch and entering the home and seeing
straight through to the gorgeous landscape of the valleys of the beautiful farmland.
When I walked through the door the first thing I saw were these boot forms.
I knew I was going to like this house!
Before I share the next photo, let me tell you a little bit about the house.
The design is Fox Hill, by of course, Southern Living Home Plans.
The house is approximately 4,500 square feet, and sits on 21 acres of land in Bundoran Farm
that was previously owned by the Scott Paper Towel family. The farmland is 2,600 acres of beauty.
Sorry guys, the house is sold. I hear that it sold for 2.3 million dollars. (unfurnished)
Also, if you missed my first post about this glorious home, you can see it on my previous post
The foyer was so inviting. (Wall color: Sherwin Williams Steamed Milk ~ love that name)
I was taking the photos in “snipits” as it was hard to get a full room shot with so many
people viewing the home. Trying my best to capture just the rooms.
The mirror and the bench are antiques. The table by Stanley and lamps by Curry and Company.
No wonder I loved those lamps! . . .
As you enter the house, to the immediate left is the Tavern Library. . . exquisite walls!
The walls are of Heart Pine. Be still my heart.
Some of the furnishings are antique
some are from the Bunny Williams Home Collection, and other resources.
Many accessories from Ballard Designs, one of the sponsors of this Idea House.
Take notice of how they framed out the TV in this room. Great idea!
This is such a warm and cozy sitting area/library.
What I so love about this house is the mix of warm woods and painted finishes.
The woodwork and the Heart Pine are truly magnificent…loved how they even placed the heart pine
on the ceiling in this area and love how they also so impeccably incorporated the wood stained doors.
As I mentioned previously, all of the wood flooring is heart pine and most of the rugs are
from Dash and Albert, The Bunny Williams Collection. Love how my feet love these floors!
So now we shall move on to the hub of the home.
The kitchen/dining room.
The kitchen is surrounded by gorgeous white cabinetry by Wellborn.
I have Wellborn cabinets in my home and love the quality of the cabinetry.
The kitchen island is enormous . . . perfect for food prep, buffets and the list goes on!
It has room for 4 counter stools.
There is no formal dining room in this house. A trend that I see with many new homes.
I actually love the idea of that.
The dining room is directly across from the kitchen area
one large room.
The dining chairs are from the Bunny Williams Collection.
I love the style and fabric of the chairs. Such a casual yet elegant feel to them.
Table by Tritter Feefer. The dinnerware is Bunny Williams Campbell House Dinnerware by Ballard Designs.
Tablecloth also by Bunny Williams/Ballard Designs.
Windows surround the dining area that overlooks the kitchen on one side
and a screened porch on the other. The chairs are covered in a durable Sunbrella fabric.
This is the view of the dining room from the Living Room.
Don’t you love how the very deep entry way is beautifully surrounded in great moulding detail?
The architectural details in this home are amazing. That is what my hubby was focusing on.
So that is it for today . . . lots more to come such as the bedrooms,
baths, laundry, living room and more!…But I leave you today with a photo of a photo.
The photo that Bunny Williams placed on the wall of the master suite galley.
An adorable photograph of Bunny Williams on a horse as a young child.
Do you notice anything? . . . . She is wearing bunny ears. Love it!
I was told that Bunny grew up in the area of Charlottesville and it was very special to her
to design this home for Southern Living in an area dear to her.
Have a wonderful day!!
