Remember that Holiday Home Tour I shared on Monday? And I said that there was one house in particular that deserved it’s own post? Well, here it is! The prettiest home on the tour. There’s a reason that line is so long!
Everyone wanted to see the home by the interior designer with no kids. (That was the word on the street.) You know what that means…. white furniture! And that interior designer is Katherine Turner of Katherine Turner Interiors. This home truly is lovely. I mean, just step inside the front door….
The first gorgeous living space we stepped into was originally a front parlor or sitting room. Remember, this is a historic home. It still could be considered a formal living room in it’s function and it’s beauty, however, it did not feel stuffy or overly formal. It had a very welcoming feel, yet exuded elegance.
This living room opened into a very light and bright dining room. I believe this room was once a sun porch.
We were then guided into the newly renovated kitchen. Just look at the glass front cabinets all the way to the ceiling and the Carrera marble counter tops. The banquette seating full of pillows around the breakfast table just begged to be sat in.
The front family room was dark and cozy. The couches were velvety soft and there was lots of shine from the coffee table to the lamps to the accessories. The TV was cleverly hidden in a beautiful cabinet but I couldn’t get a good photo of that. Sorry!
Upstairs we went to visit the inviting guest rooms. I suspect that Katherine’s guests rarely want to leave!
Finally, the master bedroom. What a gorgeous space! Dreamy whites layered on creamy whites. This room is definitely a retreat, complete with a fireplace.
Katherine did a wonderful job of using dark paint colors in many rooms without making those rooms feel small or cave-like. And she kept spaces light and bright by using plenty of white furnishings, however I wouldn’t say that her home is done all in white. She is a very talented lady! It was elegant and inviting. I am so thankful that she allowed myself, and so many others, into her home this holiday season.
