I was happy to find this home to close out 2010 as there's a great mix of classic pieces with some antiques and a bit of fresh trends thrown into the mix. I also love this home because I find it's inspirational as it represents an attainable look; either with furniture you might already own or with the addition of a few Craigslist/flea market pieces. Love the leopard print rug and the gilt mirror over the modern fireplace surround. Deer appear as prints on the wall and as a focal piece on the mantel.
A smartly laid out kitchen with a terrific view into the adjoining sitting room.
Another view of this room. Love the parsons style bench as a side table.
What a difference adding a throw makes to the slipcovered ottoman.
A nice mix of pieces in this first floor library. I also spy two more deer as bookends. Can't tell if there are deer in the print above the fireplace.
A gallery hall runs the length of the home - makes me wonder why more homes aren't designed with this feature.
A bit of velvet goes a long way in the master bedroom.
Here the upholstered bench has interesting curves and the pumpkin colored shades add a nice contrast. All images from Carriage House Properties here.

In my next post I'll be celebrating the 3rd anniversary of this blog (still find that hard to believe) and will have a giveaway too. Best wishes for a very Happy New Year!!
