Im in love with your home especially the kitchen and the master bedroom absolutely amazing I could never make that color pallet work.

Lucia T. said...

Hi Stacy, I am in love with all of your rooms! I actually saw the pictures of your living room some years ago in HGTV's rate my space, and I have been wondering ever since where you purchased your large sofa (the one across from the fireplace)? I would love to know!

Thanks!

"Blossom" said...

Good morning Stacy, can you tell me where you purchased the black and tan run on the third picture in the kitchen area under the table. Thank you, I'm going to check out your services too.

Right here is the perfect website for everyone who really wants to understand this topic. You understand so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I personally would want to…HaHa). You certainly put a brand new spin on a topic which has been written about for a long time. Excellent stuff, just excellent!

Hunter Douglas said...

Post is well written and it contains many good things for me. I am glad to find your inspiring way of writing the post.

Kathryn Ferguson Griffin said...

I lurve, lurve, lurve your house! Your decorating style reminds me of my Great Aunt Carrie's style. She mixed different colors pulling them together with black and a ton of metals. I was very fond of her style and seeing yours brings back lovely memories of the summers I spent in her grand house. And, btw, you will be one of the features at this Friday's Anything Blue Friday party. I'm actually working on the post early. Sometimes I shock myself! Anyhoo, pop in and grab an Anything Blue Friday feature button. Hope to see you again at the bash! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

Hi Stacy! I am new to your blog and LOVED your Benjamin Moore lists and home tour. I am buying a foreclosed home and will be repainting the entire home. I was wondering if you could share the paint colors that you have used in your home (especially the blues, greens, and tans). I would greatly appreciate it! Karen

Stacy Curran said...

Hi Karen! I'd be happy to help you but I don't have contact info for you. Email me at Stacycurran (at) verizon (dot) net and I'd be happy to help you!

Omg!! Perfectly gorgeous.

PamLuvsPink said...

Hi Stacy!!!!

Thank you for this very gorgeous post on your home!!! I really love the "Loveseat" that was in your bedroom before your new bedroom. It caught my eye right away!!!

You always have such great posts and it's so great to look for items around where I live that could be like one you've showed.

Enjoy the rest of the week!!!

Everything is now gray. One room looks like the next. Not a fan. Now you just need to stain the house gray and no one will know if they are on the inside of the house or the outside.

Stacy Curran said...

The previous comment is not worthy of a long response. We all know what type of person writes comments like that, so I don't need to say it. What I will say to the anonymous commenter, whoever you are, is that I sincerely wish you more happiness in the future than I expect you have right now.

For everyone else, one important point that I would like to make has to do with my philosophy about decorating. I strongly believe that every person should decorate their homes with what they like. Even if no one else in the world likes it. The point of decorating a home is to make it nurturing, loving, and happy. A place you want to go home to at night. Some people don't need any decorating to feel that way, which is totally fine, whereas others, like me and a lot of you readers, find joy and happiness and peace in beauty. But of course beauty is subjective. I say if you want to paint your whole house hot pink because it makes you happy then by all means go for it! Please please please, whatever you do, don't let other people's opinions get you down. Having different tastes and having beauty be subjective is what makes everyone unique and special. And while I may not personally care for the work of some designers, I love that they are bringing what they feel is beautiful into the world and I applaud them, rather than criticize them, for doing it.

Celeste said...

Beautiful! Is the wallpaper in your powder room textured?
