Knock Knock

Who's there?

Oh, it's Rachel....and she's moving in.

 I know this house has been all over the blog world and on the front of a magazine but I had to put it on nestegg. I couldn't help it! Must be love...


Jill Brinson, interior designer and creative director for Ballard Designs, has an knack for style. Her house is rustic, timeless... and effortlessly cool

I don't have time to tell you all the reasons I love this house so I'll just pick ONE favorite thing about each room. (deep breath- this is going to be difficult)

  • the feminine (almost diva) touches to this room against the rustic, masculine pieces. EX: the splash of pink, the shiny sconces. Brilliant MIX!


  • the white washed cabinets with chicken wire
  • oh and the lanterns! AND the wicker chair... this is clearly impossible.


  • the fact that she got this gazebo from the anthropologie store in the mall


  • the UH MAY ZING iron window


  • the different cased openings on either side of the fireplace. She's not matchy matchy-! We're going to get along great.


  • the old shutters used as closet doors


  • The soothing gray outdoor furniture....who is ready for spring?


  • I don't know if I can choose just one. But I think the main reason I love this kitchen is the span of windows above the sink instead of upper cabinets.


  • The fact that this beautiful wallpaper is unexpected yet perfect.


  • The chairs... and the view. Are we seriously in Atlanta??


  • The unique vanity with a small mirror (from Target) in between the sinks rather than spanning the length of the wall.


  • The tub. (Everything about it.)      *I did not notice a guest room so I'll just put my things in here thank you. Wake me up in a few days...

Did you love this house as much as I did? Would love to hear your thoughts.
