To Style or not to Style.....Anna's Talent

Anna Speir helped with the Coastal Living Photo Shoot.  She is out of school for a few more weeks and it was amazing as always. After the shoot we decide to style some more. Here are some images from a wonderful house that is for sale . We had a ball playing with a few of   the great spaces in the house.
Note:
Surround yourself with  the things you love and it will always feel like home.

mix it up and it will never be mundane


A few things from Grandmother's house

Anna's talent made this a great  "mantle-scape"  (made up that word)
Note:
Nature is a great design tool when mixed with the things you love.
concrete counter tops, tall ceilings and beautiful black cabinets for display

a mix of the old,the  new and the  unique ..love it!!!

a beautiful master bedroom

back stairs as beautiful as the front stairs...
window boxes make everything inviting

love the different neutrals and textures (and the special Anna oyster shell lamps)


a beautiful entrance

Love it!!!!

Anna wired oyster shells to a chandelier

A "styled" pantry for the open house on Sunday

I really enjoyed looking at this house, it was almost as good as being there in person. I love the mix of the antique bed with the funky pillows and the modern lampshades. Beautiful.

I had no idea oyster shells could look so chic, almost like subtle peacock 'eyes'~

Thank you for the fabulous tour - the house is gorgeous. I love all the oyster shell accents throughout.

Hope you're having a great week, Jane!
