In this post: Are you inspired by a stunning house tour? If you love to get ideas to apply to your own home, you’ll love this selection of beautiful houses!
Who doesn’t love a gorgeous house tour?
Several years ago I chaired a neighborhood fundraiser where the main activity was touring lovely local homes. The response was extraordinary as it often is with house tours. In fact, they’re among the most well-attended type of function an organization can put together and one of the best ways to get people to come out and participate.
As it turns out, it’s the same way on the blog. Whether I post a link to my own townhouse tour or feature a tour of someone else’s beautiful home, these posts are always among the most popular.
So it should come as no surprise that I’ve decided this is a great thing to share for the next few weeks, as a way to bring a little cheer to the grey of winter.
Today I have 3 stunning tours to show you, each decorated in a somewhat different style, but all exceedingly gorgeous! Pour a cup of tea, nestle into the couch and join me for these lovely tours!!
A Touch of France in Utah
The first feature is an exquisite French inspired home in Highland, Utah that belongs to blogger Holly Jolley from Home with Holly J. Holly is a self-described gatherer who loves all things home, from decorating and collecting to hosting and entertaining.
The home’s design borrows both from the Gustavian and French Country genres, with a stone exterior, wonderful detailing, an open floor plan with the perfect flow for entertaining. Holly’s decor is transitional with notes of French influence. In fact it’s a must see! To tour this home click here:

SoGlam Transitional Gem
Next up on the tour is an enchanting home that belongs to the fabulously talented Jen from Decor Gold Designs. Jen is passionate about interior design and it shows through in every room of her elegant home.
Her style is a delightful mix of transitional, if not modern, with a generous underpinning of southern glam. Hints of traditional speak to classic influences, yet everything is updated in the most captivating way. Be sure to tour Jen’s home at this link, below:

European Dream in New Orleans
The final tour this week is the breathtaking New Orleans home of designer Tara Shaw, showcasing the talents she’s honed through her antiques and interiors business. The stately home reflects her taste in European design, with its magnificent accents and mix of ease and grandeur.
The serene palette is a layering of neutral tones, while the furnishings comfortably marry antiques with reproductions. It is at once sumptuous and classical, spectacular and charming. Please tour Tara’s home here:
