Bloggers beautiful abodes…..Tina from The Enchanted Home

Good morning! Hope you have enjoyed my series, Bloggers Beautiful Abodes…I know I have so enjoyed getting to see all my talented blogging friend’s gorgeous homes and learning what goes on during their own creative processes. I have walked away with a wealth of knowledge so thanks again ladies!   I had many requests for me to do one so here I am. Figured it would be a fun way to close out this series. So….I will spare you a sappy introduction and delve right in, ready? Let’s go…….
 

1. How long have you been in your present home?  Is this it for the long haul? Anything you would care to change if you could?   

Just a little over a year, hard to believe! And though I like to take things day by day and not think too far into the future,  I think we will be here for a long time….would love to have an engagement or wedding here! (not that I am putting any pressure on my oldest son- he has plenty of time). At this point honestly no there is nothing I would change, we are still very much in the “honeymoon stage”.


2. If you could only live in two rooms of your house, which two would they be?

Don’ t have to think about this too hard…..the kitchen and now my loggia, since we just added the furniture, I can’t seem to stay away from it! My kitchen….. I just love and to me, its the heart of virtually every home, people love gathering in the kitchen, I get such enjoyment from cooking and entertaining and I think I could easily live in these two rooms alone! (have taken a nap on the loggia and it worked for me,  doubled as a makeshift bedroom:)

Still haven’t gotten my new stools…just visualize:)

And the loggia….


3. How would you describe your decorating style? 

 Traditional, old world, European (specifically French) inspired.

 
4. Do you have a favorite color scheme? What is it?
 


Well its no surprise to many I am sure, but  I do love my blue and white, think that’s quite obvious. Love off white, and warm tans with blues. It is important for my environment to feel soothing, relaxing and serene. I think that palette works in almost any home, is easy to coordinate with other colors if you want to bring more in and it’s very soothing and calming and absolutely timeless!

5. Favorite room of your house and why?

Lately my loggia! I think I could live there:) But I also  love my bathroom, love taking bubble baths, closing the door while the chaos ensues beyond my closed doors……..

 



6. Best two tips you can give to anyone looking to tackle the decorating of their own home? Best two things to NOT do?


Yes! Take your time (I practice what I preach, only have one really truly “done” room...lol)! Go with your instincts and with what you love. Trust your inner voice. If it is telling you yes or no, listen! Don’t be a trend follower, IF it just so happens its a look you are crazy about and it works, then so be it but don’t fall victim to a trend because you are being told it’s “in”. Chances are you will fall out of love with it well before it’s no longer a trend. Timeless classics are always a great idea!

When choosing paint ALWAYS paint a test swatch. You never know how a color will look in your room. It is amazing to me how different the same paint can look in two different rooms. Last,  invest in the best pieces you can, even if it means having only a few good things vs. a room filled with “stuff”. Quality pays off in the long run.

If I may add one more quickie…there’s no room a blue ginger jar cannot enhance! And I truly mean it, they just look great EVERYWHERE!

 

7. What do you think are the most important features for a kitchen?


Definitely an island (if the space allows for it), and if you can load it up with as much storage as possible, even better. At least two huge deep pot drawers, I love mine. A big roomy sink, for those big oversized pots, buckets and watering flowers. Windows! Good light is so important to a kitchen, if you are starting from scratch stand in your kitchen and see what kind of light you get in those hours you know you will be there a lot. 

Storage is key, and if you don’t have built in storage, then you can get small wicker baskets and store them inside cabinets, they work beautifully for organization.  

  I like unique little containers for storage…like these beautiful brass ones I am about to start carrying, wonderful for my olive oils and spices…..

I love the wooden dividers we had our cabinet maker put in nearly all of the kitchen drawers…..

8. How do you like to dress up a cocktail table and console in a living room?


Definitely adding flowers (change often with the seasons) , an orchid always works. I also like stacks of pretty coffee table books, a small crystal object or bowl. I normally have a candle or two and on  occasion a small frame. Ginger jars or a blue and white tureen ALWAYS works.  I like to experiment and “change things up”.

 
9. Any advice on the subject of lighting?



Yes, am a huge fan of lamps and sconces. We put high hats in some of rooms to have the extra lighting if we ever needed it but truth be told, with the exception of the kitchen and my boys rooms, I can count on my left hand how many times we have turned them on. We always turn on the lamps, sconces and chandeliers (way more flattering too)! Dimmers are a great idea to control the mood, love gas lanterns for outside.

 
10. Have a favorite paint color? Do tell!


This is boring, but Linen White from Benjamin Moore has gotten us through many a paint dilemma. It’s a creamy white, very neutral and just works. There’s a reason its so popular! When it feels too yellow, we cut it with one part white Dove and its a toned down version. Its a great staple color.


11. What are a couple of really simple inexpensive things you can do in your home to make it feel “homey” and inviting?



For sure, flowers and candles to start! Even getting a bouquet from your local market and putting them in a vase somewhere you spend a lot of time. Lighting a candle or two whose scent you love, nothing is as wonderful as walking into a home that smells good! 

Make a powder room feel special and dress up the vanity or whatever shelving you have with special touches like a beautiful candle, pretty soaps, elegant finger towels, these little touches really add a touch of elegance.  I think starting at the front door, a beautiful welcome mat and pretty planters planted with some kind of greenery and flowers makes a wonderful first impression to not only you but your visitors.

12. Fill in the blank- If money was no object, the very first thing I would buy for my home would be………….

This was easy! A beautiful  conservatory. I am dying for one! It would double as my greenhouse, office and secret playhouse (where I might even keep a daybed) lol.

 
So there you have it. Thanks for stopping in and paying me a visit. Hope you enjoyed the series, I certainly did and will hopefully bring it back again in the future. Wishing you a wonderful Monday and a fabulous start to the week! Hope the sun is shining wherever you are:)

One word with Tina from The Enchanted Home and a Safavieh giveaway!!

Was cleaning out my files of old posts, and I came across this post that I somehow never posted! I had done this quite a while ago and thought I might as well post it as several had asked me to do one on myself way back when.  Giveaway details on bottom So here it goes….

OK I am going to spare you a sappy intro because well, that would be well just really strange since it is about moi! However many people asked me to do one on myself so I figured why not. What the heck…..it will give my brain a chance to focus on something else other than fabrics, wallpaper, and lighting fixtures. So here we go………say hello to Tina from The Enchanted Home!

One quality I love in people is: Authenticity (no phonies or social climbers please)

If my house could only be furnished in one color it would definitely have to be: White


One luxury I cannot live without: clean water and my computer


If I had to have one designer decorate my entire house with 0 input from me it would have to be: This is so hard….there are so many talents out there!It would be a “cocktail”of a heaping teaspoon of  Kathy Kincaid, a pinch of Charles Faudree, a dab of Phoebe Howard, a smidgeon of Dan Carithers and a sprinkle of Bunny Williams. There!



If I had to choose coffee or tea it would be: Coffee! Though lately I am enjoying and drinking more tea, especially many wonderful flavored teas like peach mango and pomegranate…yum!



One place I have been that I would love to go back to: Italy (hoping to go to Positano, The Amalfi coast and Tuscany SOON)



One place I am longing to visit is: China and Greece, oops that’s two!


One talent I wish I had was: sing (even better than I do- if that is possible…totally kidding )


I think most people would agree I am very: friendly and funny 

If I could change one quality about myself it would be: to be less impatient and more tolerant.


One career I could see myself having would be: a screenwriter or producer

If food is therapy, when stressed I indulge in: chocolate, preferably with nuts and tons of caramel 


One of my favorite brands for clothing is: Tory Burch

If my life were a book, the title would be: An Enchanted Life



My favorite flower is: Peonies ( tied with orchids, hydrangeas and French tulips)



I would love to have coffee and a chat session with this famous person: Princess Diana

A favorite TV show I can’t miss: If I am to be honest….Top Chef, Million dollar decorators, any of the “housewives” shows on Bravo (guilty pleasure)Hey, at least I am being honest:)They are fun and its kind of hard to believe they are “for real”! Bravo rocks! But on the flip side, I am also a serial news junkie.

Hollywood is: Too superficial for my taste but do love a great movie so am indebted to what they do!

Tuscany or Provence? Tuscany. No Provence. No Tuscany. No Provence. Sorry either one is a dream!


The next presidential election will be: The typical explosion of fireworks and finger pointing right up until election night.

The one best thing about blogging is: the incredible friendships and connections I have made and continue to make



A guilty pleasure for me is: indulging in good food and retail therapy

A clothing designer I think that has great style: Ralph Lauren or Tory Burch



My strongest quality would have to be: That I am a loyal, devoted friend

The best restaurant I have ever been to was: A few come to mind but in recent years, dining at Le Meurice in Paris was pretty spectacular (and decadently delicious)!


Most overrated actor/actress is: Alive: Kim Kardashian (if you can even call her an actress)


If my life were a documentary, I could see this actress playing me: Possibly  Charlize Theron



One thing I like about my appearance is: my eyes



One thing I can honestly say I love about myself is: That I am very generous and love to live in the moment


Town or country: country (but having a small city place for weekend jaunts would be quite nice)



One person I admire: I have to say three, my husband and my parents. Awesome in every way.

Pick a decade to live in, any decade: 20’s, flapper dresses, amazing headdresses,crazy parties,good manners, chivalry, champagne….need I say more! Always say I was born in the wrong era!



My favorite room of my house is: my kitchen, where it all goes down!

If I were an animal I would be a…dog, Teddy of course.

A book I would recommend to everyone would be…
Cutting for Stone or The Help 

                                     



If I were planning a huge family reunion, this is where I would want to have it: On a beautiful beach in a oceanfront home in Hawaii or in a vineyard in the heart of Napa Valley!


One thing I wish everyone could be more of: compassionate and accepting. Oops…there I go again, I said two not one! Those two things could change our world.

In one word life is…thrilling!
                                 

  Ism’t she great!! JUST KIDDING!! I love these kinds of things, a fun and interesting way to get to know what makes people tick.  Thank you for reading and stopping by to hear what I have to say.

OK this is hypothetical?at this moment …..as I have eluded to in the past, I am hoping to?set up shop and start a small business selling things that are very much “my style”, think old world meets European meets French rustic elegance……best way to describe a look that doesn’t necessarily fit in a perfect neat box all the time but loosely that’s the look I am after. I am doing my “research” right now and having quite a lot of fun. I like to know what excites people in the marketplace. Below are a host of things I have my eye on to “carry” and I would LOVE your feedback. ?Just let me know what you think about the feeling of the overall vibe of the accessories here, is there an item or item(s) that you think the marketplace needs more of/is saturated with??



?Some of these things I found through my own needs and frustration in not being able to find them ……figuring if I was having a hard time finding something like this, then there must be many others having that same frustration. Would love to know what?you?like, what you don’t like, what excites you here. Thank you so very much, your feedback is appreciated more than you can possibly imagine. To thank you for your time and contemplation, I am doing a giveaway! All details on bottom of the post.?To be eligible for the ?giveaway just comment on this post and I will select a winner and post the winner on Saturday afternoon. ?If you want an additional chance to win, like me or leave a comment on my Facebook page. (can’t believe I am saying that, feel so “hip”) Click here to visit The Enchanted Home on Facebook. ?Thank you and happy make believe shopping!






This would be a labor of love and a great way for me to restart my design career slowly as I finish my own house (well we all know its never really finished but you know what I mean)!?I look forward to hearing your feedback, here we go……






Love this line of very elegant old world silver pieces, trays, cache posts, planters, serving pieces…really exquisite! Well priced too:) Imagine a pretty orchid potted in these or rolled hand towels for an elegant powder room, beautiful perfume bottles displayed on the gorgeous scalloped trays……

And for a European touch in the kitchen…some fun reproductions of old European faves, bread bowls, wood trivets and cutting boards, dough bowl, grain feeders, olive trays. These pieces are just gorgeous and are vintage reproductions finished with natural beeswax, vintage hardware and weathered detailing adds to the beauty of these pieces!

And you know I love my decorative porcelains……

How great are these pieces for the ultimate blue and white statement in a bathroom?

Can we seriously ever have enough pillows!! One of my favorite looks, needlepoint and aubusson pillows….a total classic! A little something for everyone from very traditional to more fun and transitional.

And you know how I feel bell jar lanterns, so pretty and works in virtually any space. These are offered in a host of patterns and 4 sizes, S, M,L and Jumbo.

More beautiful porcelains…..can never have enough blue and white jars!!

How about these pretty chandelier lamp shades? Again had a hard time finding some I liked so was happy to discover these!!

Love white staffordshire dogs!! Will have them in several colors, they are great decorative objects!

Painted pieces……

More cute dogs…..

?And for all you blue and white lovers…..

And for all you lovers of old world feeling linens with monograms…..(best part is this are REALLY reasonable and oh so pretty)!

This is a beautiful line of canvas art, very old world, antiqued feeling and nothing over 150 dollars!!! There will also be an option to have these framed, and on average they are about 26×19 to give you an idea of sizing..they are really beautiful in person!

Heres a picture of one in my house so you can see what it looks like a bit better..

And last but not least I will also carry a line of custom topiaries…..like the ones I designed in my own kitchen that many asked about. They will be offered in a variety of sizes and containers….

?The lemon leaf topiaries are such a classic…they work in almost any room, any interior

Phew!! This was a lot to take in. But you know I highly value your opinions so now its time for me to hear from you! What excites you here? Anything? All of it? What does the marketplace need more of/less of? Cannot wait to hear. Above all else I want to stay true to what I love, my style and stay with what I know and love. That is my mission and realize you cannot be all things to all people. Can’t wait?to hear from you!
Now to be eligible for the wonderful giveaway (below) it is simple….just leave me a comment below telling me what you love here and if you want a second chance, you can either like me on Facebook or leave a comment on The Enchanted Home’s Facebook?by clicking here. Wow, I have come a long way just saying that about Facebook!
Here’s the goodies!
One winner will receive a dozen monogrammed linen cocktail napkins!
And…..
One winner will receive 3 linen monogrammed guest towels in your choice of white/white or ecru/white.?
Good luck everyone and thank you again for your support always…I cannot think of a?”panel of great minds” whose opinions could possibly count as much as yours!
