First things first, today I’m wishing Sister the happiest of birthdays! She’s catching up to me :-)
Now, I am beyond thrilled to have bestie R of the gorgeous blog Uptown Acorn over today for Dixie Delights’ first guest post ever! Enjoy the tour of his lovely New Orleans home and then hop on over to his blog to enter to win a lovely seagrass and rope frame. And without further ado, meet Ron…
Hi Dixie Delights fans,
I was elated to be asked to guest post on the exquisite and well written blog, Dixie Delights. Today, I’d like to share some of my downstairs home tour with you. I hope you will pop over to Uptown Acorn and become a follower if you have not already. I am a lover of anything Southern and anything coastal, so I would call my style as Southern Coastal comfort.
Take a trip with me as I open my front door…
The rear of the house is an open floor plan and contains the dining room, den, breakfast room, and kitchen. The dining area is great for dinners with friends and family. The best part of dining for me is not the cooking but the styling of my table.
The Den is where J and I spend most of our time watching TV and visiting with guests. The den is a comfortable mix of elegance and coastal touches. I am in love with the bird oil behind the sofa.
The Breakfast Room
When we are not seated and eating at the breakfast bar, J and I eat our meals at the breakfast table. I am also proud of the recent update and redo of my armoire turned dry bar (You can check that out here!).
J and I are not big cooks, as we like to grill outdoors, but the kitchen is large enough and has ample storage space. The space would be the first to totally renovate if money was no object.
I hope you have enjoyed this tour of my downstairs (sans powder room under stairs). Stay tuned in weeks to come as I share with you my backyard courtyard and upstairs.
Thanks again, Amanda!
