830 Hungerford Place

I was browsing homes in Charlotte when I came across this one. It's 11,000+ square feet and is located at 830 Hungerford Place, on 3 acres. The front is symmetrically designed and even more elegant once you take a step inside...

I love all the natural light coming in the front doors, it reflects of the painted hardwoods which give the space some character.

The stairway has a modern sisal type of carpet, perfect for a busy family to hurry up and down the stairs.

The formal living room has beautiful 12' ceilings, as does the rest of the home. It looks slightly unused, but would be a lovely spot to host a Christmas tea party.

The dining room has a beautifully painted wall, and ample space to sit everyone around a large round table. I would have added seating by the windows for after dinner guests and maybe a small bar.

Besides the obvious, there's a bear in the room... I'd be walking through this room quickly, he looks like he climbed through the window.

And this is where I'd settle. The French style furnishings are classy, yet look really comfortable.

A dreamy white kitchen, which overlooks the breakfast room. So much light this would be a wonderful start to every day.

Upstairs is this comfy bedroom, which has soothing colored walls and nicely adorned trim. There are 6 bedrooms altogether, and 10 bathrooms (although none were pictured).

It's on the market for 3.45 million. You can visit the link here.

Full Length Movie Sunday

There are some weekends when we all need some downtime. Time to sit back, relax and watch movies. I have been finding lot's of old, but good movies on You Tube. Totally appropriate for Hallmark or Lifetime, these movies are some I've seen before, but they all carry a message.

Ordinary Miracles (2005)
is about a young girl who gets sent from foster home, to foster home, but when there's no place for her to go a judge decides to take her in. This movie teaches you about second chances.

A Child's Cry For Help (1994)
a movie that brings out the investigator in you, can a mom who seem so affectionate, and loving be the reason for her sons illnesses? This movie teaches that you have to rely on instinct.

Everybody's Baby The Rescue Of Jessica McClure (1989)
The video cannot be posted, but is a worthwhile watch. A baby has an accident and draws a nation together in her rescue. This movie teaches how we should all help each other, in times of need. 

Child Star: The Shirley Temple Story (2001)
my grandmother loved Shirley Temple, so I decided to learn more. This movie is about how Shirley was the most famous child star, most possibly in history, but after growing up, her fame began to fade.

Hope you had a happy weekend!

Built-ins and Dressers

I adore these creamy dressers and built-ins. I think the dogs approve also.

Vintage Coastal Style and Milk Bunt Cake

My style is Vintage Coastal.
I adore a pastel palette with soothing mints, soft whites and hints of blush.

Vintage entry with a mint wallpaper. The traditional wood floors, and mill work add character and the seating adds a touch of French vintage elegance.

Vintage bathroom with a roll top bathtub and clean white cabinetry. I adore the floral accents, and soft touches which make this bathroom look cozy, and relaxing.

Coastal kitchen with white cabinetry and extensive mill work. The lanterns add some character and a focal point to the room. So much natural light.
Seaside Style
Coastal living room with beautiful sea views. Could you imagine an afternoon gazing out the window? The stripe rug grounds the furniture arrangement, and like colors are repeated in the cushions and throws.
Vintage kitchen that makes you want to bring out a recipe book and bake. The open shelving in imperfectly perfect and the beamed ceiling adds the cohesive style.

How about baking a milk bunt cake. Looks delicious to me.
