Home Tour: A Peek Inside a Blog Reader's Charming House!

Home Tour

Today I am giving you a little peek into a blog reader’s house! We all love to snoop around pretty houses! This home belongs to Martha. When she emailed me the other day I almost fainted when I saw her kitchen. Hello, lovely kitchen! Since she doesn’t have a blog of her own, I thought I’d give her a chance to show us around her charming home!

Enjoy the home tour!

    What a beautiful home! I would love to know more about their kitchen island. Did they build it?

    • Hi Amber. We did not build it ourselves, but ordered it through a kitchen company, that sells solid countertops. Martha

  14. Wow! I would love to have a cup of coffee and sit at that beautiful table with the white pumpkins and flowers. It is so perfectly put together!

  15. Carolyn Maves says:

    Her bare bones house is beautiful. And then the lovely furniture and how she decorates. Just beautiful, and the best part, live-able looking too. Some house are so stiff you wonder if you would feel comfortable in them.

  16. Beautiful home! Her style reminds me of yours, Melissa! Gorgeous :)

      1. Armoire- Stratton Blue
      2. Kitchen barstools-Millsprings Blue
      3. Nook Buffet- Wythe Blue
      Would love to see if you do end up using these!!

  21. Martha is a dear friend and she truly has the ‘eye’. I hope you feature some of her Christmas/holiday decorating. It is truly stunning. Yes, Martha, you should have your own blog! Thanks for showcasing this amazing woman’s home!

  22. GORGEOUS!! I would love to move right in! And I want to see more of Martha’s house – can you invite her back sometime?

    Such a lovely home Martha. Thanks for the ‘peek’ inside.

  27. What a beautiful home to live and entertain in!! I do love the color palette and enjoyed seeing the lovely blue canning jars used. I also noticed…that there are two different pics of the same dining area with two different light fixtures overhead…I like them both and they give totally different vibes to the area! Thanks for sharing.

    • Yes, I noticed that too, and it made me laugh!! Neither my husband or I caught that when sending Melissa the pics. The permanent fixture is the white one!! :)

      • I didn’t even catch that! I guess I was so in love with every picture I overlooked that! And probably late night blogging made me blurry eyed :-)! Both are gorgeous though!

  28. oh my goodness! what a beautiful home! it looks so very comfortable! and i, too, definitely think Martha needs a blog! thank you, Martha (& Melissa), for sharing!

  29. Marcia Hron says:

    Oh, thank you so much for sharing these photos of Martha’s delightful home! How very beautiful and how creative! Love the vintage window frames in the dining room. Very nice.

  30. Wow! How gorgeous! I love her outdoor area — so pretty and styled perfectly for Fall! Thanks for sharing with us!
