first house on home tour day

Yesterday was the day of

the Newport Harbor Home & Garden Tour,

and I wanted to share a little

bit of the day with you.

This year there were six homes featured on the tour.

and this home on Windward Lane was our first stop…

Lisa, my best friend since 8th grade,

comes down every year for the tour

and we go together.

And this year, Leslie,

another friend from high school,

joined us and we had such a blast!

This is a darling traditional style home

with really fun curb appeal

and an authentic Cape Cod vibe.

That row of red rocking chairs

reminds me of the ones we

see in Harbour Town every year

when we visit Hilton Head.

Inside, the home has been updated

and brightened up quite a bit with

white cabinets, sleek finishes and mercury glass accessories.

The tongue and groove ceiling

in the kitchen helps to define the

beachy, Cape Cod style of the home.

The kitchen island features

two of these long benches for seating

but the focal point of the kitchen is

really this spectacular chandelier.

The neon cheers sign is a fun accent!

The dining room table was set

with a little help from

Williams-Sonoma and their line of Aerin

blue and white accessories.

You get a great view of the backyard

from the dining room table.

The comfy seating out by the pool is really cute.

This house has a great back yard for entertaining.

The living room was mostly white and muted,

soft colors with just a little brightness

brought in with the plants and succulents.

I love the coastal accessories in these alcoves.

My favorite parts of the master bedroom were the

capiz shelled chandelier and the

neutral grasscloth wallcovering.

I love the sound this light fixture makes

when a slight breeze hits it.

Here’s a cozy little corner in the bedroom.

Who doesn’t love the double “C” monogram of Chanel?

The craft room in this home was amazing.

Every corner was filled

with all kinds of crafty doodads,

and sooo very organized.

The homeowner used lots of

oversizedAnchor jars

and vintage style

apothecary jars for storage.

Lisa and Leslie both loved this painting in the family room.

Here’s a sneak peek at the next home

I’m going to share…
