I am so thrilled to bring you a home tour that is unlike any other. Interior designer Edith-Anne Duncan graciously invited me to her glorious home in Blacksburg, Virginia and I can easily say this home blew me away with color, personality, and thoughtfulness. Her home is a feast for the senses and her cheerful design can’t help but leave you smiling.
I am so excited to bring you all another great home tour. This time, we have a Chic Peek into the home of Carrie Henderson. Carrie was not only the designer of this home, but impressively the builder as well. With four children, she skillfully thought of a functional and sophisticated layout that would work for her darling young family. I listened and looked in awe as Carrie explained how she built furniture, painted artwork, and more. I was truly inspired touring this home, and hope you will be too!
Almost two years ago I was in Fort Worth, Texas and spotted the most beautiful new construction I have seen in years. Fast forward an instagram post later, and interior designer Tori Rubinson was so gracious as to show me inside her gorgeous new home that she designed for her young family.
Visiting the beach on 30A in the panhandle of Florida is always a treat, especially when we get another fabulous home tour from designer Allyson Runnels. She recently worked with a family from Nashville to design a chic modern beach home. While the focus of the home is the direct access beach views, the interiors are fresh, comfortable, perfectly textured.
I have been fortunate enough to step into the homes of some very talented women who have done an excellent job of sourcing unique finds for their spaces. Many of whom are not trained designers, but have sharp senses and ways to scour for high-end finds. I think it is safe to say that this home tour with Elizabeth Cook in Columbus, Georgia will leave you inspired. Why pay full price, when you can have the Veranda look for less?!
While I was in Hinsdale, I was fortunate enough to tour one of the most iconic homes in this charming Chicago suburb. Anna Fiascone took me through this colorful home that was once a dairy barn in 1898 for the house next door. In 1924, it was converted into a residence. Despite a long history, the home is still perfectly functioning for a modern family- plus, full of charm!
It is a true Christmas treat and a major personal privilege to bring you a Beyond the Curb home tour of renown interior designer Cathy Kincaid. Cathy’s lovely 1918 Dallas home is every bit as charming and thoughtfully designed as you would expect it to be. With a masterful eye, Cathy uses pattern in perfect proportion. She strives to make her design equally layered and refined, while still being comfortably chic.
I have been speaking up on my social media platforms about the lack of preservation around Dallas, and many have commented that it is happening in other cities as well. So often, it is hard for young families to envision how you can make a historic home relevant for a modern lifestyle. I am thrilled to be able to bring you a perfect example of how a family did just that.
