Love Your Home Part 4

This has been a very busy week and weekend, and time to post a new house for my
Love Your Home # 4
just didn't happen.

But, you won't want to miss the one coming next Monday.  It will be something with a little different slant.

So, I am doing a repeat of a lovely home I posted back in November of 2014.

It is definitely worth repeating.

Connie's Traditional Home

This traditional home is in the Historic South Highland neighborhood of Shreveport.  It is one of the newer homes having been built in the late 1950's.  Connie and her family have lived there for 38 years.
  As this was a November post, there are beautiful seasonal decorations from the warm welcoming at the front door to the kitchen.

The minute I walked into this warm, traditional home, I felt at home. Sun was streaming through the many windows and the color scheme is lovely.
 Come inside with me.  Not every home can accommodate a large room with a bold color on the walls.  However, this russet red could not be more at home here and creates a very pleasing background for the rich woods and traditional decor.
 There are lovely antiques and comfortable furniture, some of which were inherited from Connie's mother and grandmother.
 
 The oriental theme introduced by this beautiful settee, is carried throughout the house.
 
 Family is very important to Connie and it is evident by the many family photos displayed in almost every room.
 
Connie loves to entertain and was in fact preparing for a group of Sunday School ladies on the day I photographed her home.
 Connie has been collecting her Spode Woodland China for several years and looks forward to using it every fall.  Her inherited stemware is the same pattern that my mother had.  We both love it.

My favorite room in the house is the family room.
Two of the things that I believe make this home so pleasing to the eye and comfortable is the color scheme Connie has carried throughout and the inviting conversational areas.
To make the most of their small back yard, they created two distinct areas for entertaining.  The ground cover and carefully selected plantings mean minimum care.
The upstairs landing is a perfect example of what is important to this family - a gallery wall of family pictures.
 There are three bedrooms and an office upstairs.
The spacious Master Bedroom continues the oriental flavor and color scheme from downstairs.  The soft yellow on the walls offers a feeling of serenity.
 I loved this bed in one the guest rooms.
The kitchen is the gathering place and I think you can see why.  The large island is the hub for gathering and serving.
 This lovely grouping of special blue ware is hung above the breakfast table which also doubles as a work space.
 Thank you Connie, for allowing me to share your lovely home again.  It is as warm as your smile.
