One house tour can give you more inspiration that a full week spent on Pinterest!
Am I wrong?
If you enjoy posts about individual room reveals, a house tour is a veritable bonanza! For me what’s most motivating about a virtual house tour (or likewise, one in person) is that when you find a designer whose style you love, seeing room after room of how they approach a space is all the more enlightening.
A cohesive home, where rooms flow cogently into one another, is a pleasure to see. Well-decorated homes make a complete statement, with a clear design style and a sense of connectedness among the rooms.
Today I’m sharing one such home, from a favorite designer whose work I’ve shared before. Her name is Brittany Jones and you can find her on Instagram. This stunning house was built for the Parade of Homes by Edge Homes, while the interiors were done by Brittany, in an overall aesthetic she calls rustic chic. You can also spot an unmistakable French influence that works surprisingly well with the home’s decidedly modern presence.
Let’s take a look.
The entry sets the architectural tone with a magnificent curved staircase, custom made welded iron railings, dark wood flooring and tall alabaster walls reaching up to the arched windows punctuated by elegant French sconces.
The space is airy and light filled, creating a dramatic introduction for what is to follow, a home that comfortably mixes masculine and feminine, light and dark, as well as modern with timeworn.
This charming sitting area at the top of the staircase borrows from Swedish Gustavian tradition with a replica Mora clock, tufted settee, gilt framed botanicals and gently patterned throw pillows.
The living room showcases the designer’s talent for reining in a cavernous space and delivering a conversation area that’s tranquil and welcoming. Taking advantage of the light that pours through sliders and windows beneath soaring ceilings, it’s nonetheless intimate and calming at the same time.
Nothing says Brittany Jones Interiors like French blue, her self-described “favorite hue in all the world”. In the dining room the color is used in lavish drapery panels that are a total show stopper. These and all draperies in the home are from Budget Blinds.
A farmhouse table from Classic Home is paired with oval backed side chairs, and at the table’s ends we find sumptuous cane back arm chairs. A lovely French Country chandelier presides over the space.
An open concept kitchen provides amazing work space with a view from kitchen to dining room, and a majestic brick wall that keeps the look warm and inviting. Yet gorgeous marble counters and white cabinetry ensure the room is, above all, light and bright. The stately vent hood is from Stone Coat, while the counters are peppered with small antique finds.
A cozy den wears a masculine air, with a plush leather sofa and wooly plaid cushions. Luxurious navy velvet chairs are sheer perfection. With pavers underfoot and a stag on the wall, the room imparts a feeling of a private men’s club. Unseen, this room also features custom wood cabinets and copper countertops.
A wonderful powder bath has a custom vanity with a vessel sink and wall-mounted faucet in antiqued brass. The warm materials pull together so perfectly and give the small space tons of character.
Perhaps the highlight of this home is the award-winning master suite, the epitome of Brittany’s rustic chic vision. Once again it features the expert mix of dark and light, hard and soft, rugged with refined, and the end result is absolutely magical!
The bed itself exemplifies this blend, comprising feminine curves and tufting mixed with rustic wood and burlap. Generous linens mirror the concept with breezy ruffles and cozy quilting, along with velvet pillows and a faux fur throw.
The tattersall chair is from Bassett Furniture, complementing the Loloi rug and chandelier from Dement Lighting.
Brittany’s signature style combines pretty French bureaus with the heavier pieces creating the dichotomy between rustic and refined that is so defining to her design.
A sweet little sitting room adjoins the bedroom, with an overstuffed loveseat that makes you want to cuddle up and take a nap. The blush pink pillow was an amazing Home Good’s find. It sits across from a bench from Hooker Furniture and an Oushak rug from Kalaty acts as an underpinning to all. What a perfect nook for coffee and a book!
Without a doubt, my favorite space in this home is the exquisite master bath!
I don’t know which detail I love the most, from the beautiful pink velvet quatrefoil poufs, to the stunning Viola chandeliers from Troy lighting, or the luscious window coverings over that magnificent arched opening or possibly the delightful clawfoot tub with its vintage telephone faucet.
Did I mention the antique door? Fabulous! There’s also a steam shower. Hard to decide which I love most when it’s all so glorious and executed perfectly!
As if that wasn’t enough, the suite also includes a light filled office with colorful artwork and French inspired lighting. The pendant is from Quorum International. Graduated gold shelves display decorative pieces and are a favorite detail of many who visit.
A peek at the guest room reveals an absolute stunner, with the loveliest bed linens and enchanting drapery panels, a delicate tone on tone white sheer made in France. The quatrefoil motif is repeated here, another nod to the French influence.
A classic bedroom strikes a more masculine tone, with pinstripe coverlet and shams, rattan shades and neutral linen panels and rug.
The combination laundry and mud room is a French farmhouse triumph, with delicious soft toned cabinets in Sherwin Williams Silvermist, a white farmhouse sink with Moen faucet, and Alpha Concrete Country Mix pavers, unsealed and unpolished with white grout.
This house is truly breathtaking and I thank Brittany Jones for allowing me to take you on this tour. I could find a year’s worth of inspiration in any one of these gorgeous rooms and taken all together it’s a genuine celebration of home design and extraordinary talent.
