Quirky & Classic Entry

Quirky & Classic Entry

via Atlanta Homes

“I’ve always loved quirky things that are mixed with classic,”

says Ann {the homeowner}.

“More than anything, I wanted this house to be fun.”

I think that is a lovely way to approach a home, don’t you? Reminds me of this post. 

Do you ever think about the words you might use to describe your home?

Quirky & Classic Entry


  1. I’d describe my home as coastal-cottage-beach-relaxed-traditional-americana looking. Even though we do live in coastal Louisiana, we’re a good 40 miles from the Gulf…so no, it’s not quite authentic. But you know, it makes me happy. ;)

  2. I’m obsessed with those floors


  3. I sooooo love that door! This is exactly the kind of door I will look for when I build a house. Now I’m torn because yellow is really great and beautiful color for a door, but I kind of love teal and turquoise. Yikes! I’ll figure it out — I’ve got years to do so. Definitely gives that otherwise very simple space an excellent pop of color!

    Today, this day, God has used you, to inspire me, a sixty year-old mother of five, Nana of five, to believe
    in myself and my own giftings. I also see everything as a magazine cover!! I just thought I was a bit weird
    but now I realize,[thanks to your blog] that I will carry on, being completely who God made me to be. Also
    for my generation, this blogging and sharing is pretty new stuff. But I am discovering it and loving it all.
    Thank you, and God bless you

  7. Hi Melissa, I am in love with the yellow front door, the floors and as you said the character overall is wonderful. I guess I would have to use the words my guest have used over the years. Peaceful, comfortable,classic, with a touch of elegance.

  8. I love the idea of a home full of classic and fun pieces. I’ve been thinking I need a little more more fun for our home in colour and pattern here and there – something to makes us smile. Thanks for the inspiration.

    I like to think of my home as a growing collection. I love to collect items on my travels and display them as memories around my mom. I especially love finding art work from local artists.

    It is important to me though that my home is relaxed and comfortable as well, with beautiful character.

  10. Love a home with lots of character…quirky included. My Home style- If I like it I make it work. =) I think at times I don’t really have a style….but then I see a pattern happening as I shop…so maybe I do. I love, old, reused, vintage, soft blue and white.
    Happy Day

  11. I’ve never seen wood floors like those before and I’m assuming they are reclaimed wood. They’re gorgeous whatever they are! I also really love the choice of color for the door. It is eye catching and fresh all at the same time!
