At Home with Southern Hospitality

I have been working so hard behind the scenes over here to bring y’all a brand new series called At Home.  Kicking us off will be my sweet friend and fellow Atlantan Rhoda at Southern Hospitality!

Rhoda has spent the last four years tirelessly working to share a complete, top to bottom renovation of her home.  You really won’t believe all of her before and after photos.  I love her traditional style and that she shares every single detail of every room – colors, fabrics, sources and even costs.  By clicking on the links to each room, you will find entire posts full of sources and ideas.  Welcome to Southern Hospitality…


Living Room

If you know Rhoda, you will know that this space perfectly reflects her cheery personality. It is so very warm and welcoming!  I love how she took advantage of the great vaulted ceiling and I adore the ship lap over the fireplace.


Dining Room

The board and batten in the dining room is one of my favorite features in the house!!  I love the mix of old and new and am a huge fan of the statement lantern over the table.



You will never believe that this is an Ikea kitchen!!!  I loved following along with this project and couldn’t believe the results.



The den is another favorite space.  The mix of color and patterns is a little edgy, but the entire room maintains a welcoming and traditional feel.  I am a huge fan of painting the backs of my bookcases and love the color here.



Home offices have come a long way since dark wood and paneling!  I get enough of that at work.  I love that this space is bright and cheery and inspiring.


Master Bedroom

Y’all… this gingham wall is hand painted!  That’s right.  Hand painted!!  I love the art, traditional furnishings and classic bedding.  Such a beautiful place to lay your head.



This fabulous black and white bathroom is one of Rhoda’s newest updates.  She breaks out all the details on her blog and I have bookmarked this for when I start my own.  One day… far far away.



There is something quintessentially Southern about a screened porch.  This is absolutely the perfect space for morning coffee, reading a book, taking a snooze and an evening cocktail.  I love that it is furnished as an extension of the inside, with drapes, a rug, lighting and accessories.



Last but not least, I adore Rhoda’s functional and practical patio addition.  It’s the perfect place for entertaining!  Don’t you just way to lounge on that sofa?!


Many, many thanks to Rhoda for inviting us into her delightful home!

  1. I had the pleasure of meeting Rhoda many years ago when about 10 of us from Atlanta got together for a blogger dinner (way back in the beginning). She is the most genuine person. She is true to herself in all of her design decisions and isn’t afraid to stand out and be different. I know those who meet her at Haven this weekend are going to adore her!

    1. So sweet, Lauren! One of the things I love most about her is that she isn’t just a carbon copy of whatever happens to be trendy that day :-)

    1. It was my pleasure! I will miss you at Haven this year… too hard with school starting. I hope y’all have a wonderful weekend!!!

  2. I have followed Rhoda’s blog for years, and so enjoyed watching her and her father transform this home. It is lovely, right down to the landscaping. Enjoyed this post! ♥ xo

    1. Her parents are complete DOLLS! I got to meet them last year at Haven. Just as precious in real life as they are on her blog.

    1. I completely agree. She uses every space in her home well. I often think that my living room (and Whit’s room because he still shares with John) could just fall off the house and we wouldn’t even notice.

  3. Thank you for having Rhoda on your blog! I have followed her for years! She stands out in the blog world because she is true to herself! Love her!
