Tuesdays Tour. . .Artistic Living

Originally I was going to share the beautiful colors of Autumn in our mountains for the arrival of Fall.

We planned to take a trip on Sunday.  We woke up to rain and it continued all day.  Needless to say it didn’t happen.

So instead I am sharing a very unique and artistic home with you. Photos taken with my phone, so not fabulous.

Last June I attended a garden tour.  The owners of this home graciously opened up the inside for us to tour as well.

In the living room this gorgeous quilt block pattern was painted right onto the hardwood floor.

This home had more going on than what I would be able to live with, but I wanted to share the amazing talent of the woman that lived there.

She hand painted all of these murals on the wall.  Imagine the hours that went into this!  These were also in the living room.

There was painting in pretty much every room in the home, but I didn’t take photos of all of it.

This is the kitchen table.  Just look at the detail around the edge.

She also created this light fixture.  Not only a talented artist, but she does amazing glass work!

A real tree branch with a painted silhouette was in one of the boys room.  I thought it was so unique.

The entire room had a woodsy theme.

Three chairs formed a bench at the foot of a bed.

Quilts hung on the wall as you walked up the stairs.  Where does this woman find the time to exercise so many talents?

Another beautiful quilt draped across a bed.

A collection of hats and more quilts hung in the kitchen.

This was probably my favorite thing about the entire home.  I loved the open pantry with the jars.

Like I said, not everyone could live in a home like this, but I love that she has expressed herself in so many ways!

hugs,

Jann,
What a very colorful home and very artistic. Hey it may not be for everyone but it is for her. I feel you should decorate and surround yourself with what you love and not what everyone else thinks is the right decor. Bravo she expresses herself and loves to surround herself with the beauty of her art work.
Love all those glass containers in her kitchen and all the hats. How fun is that.

Her painting is outstanding! How fun just to tour her home and view the many heirlooms she's created! The quilts are gorgeous, too. And you said you were there for a garden tour, so that's another of her many talents. Wow!

I love unique homes and this is absolutely fabulous! What great talent she has. I especially like the tree in the boy's woodsy room and the edge of the round table. Wow!!

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

This was just amazing!!

She must quilt faster than me, lol : )

I can't get over the talent here...wow.

Nancy Reinke said...

It's a showcase for her talent, and I can certainly appreciate that. Like you, Jann, my favorite part of the house is the open pantry shelving with the jars. (Were we separated at birth or something?) Second favorite is that painted floor. Fabulous! Thanks for sharing this amazing home. xxx ~ Nancy

Oh my goodness! That gal has talent. You're right...I cannot imagine the hours that have gone into painting the walls, floors, and furniture. Thanks for giving us a glimpse inside, Jann!

Best wishes for more extraordinary adventures.
