This or That Follow-Up: Home No. 2’s Interior

tupper lake11

I know I have said before that I love the fact that blogging has allowed me to establish connections that would not have been possible otherwise. Yesterday, I posted a little game called “This or That?: Home Elevations”. Well, it certainly is a small world because I received an e-mail from the owner of House No.2 (The Coastal House) last night and I received another e-mail from the owner of House No. 1 (The Spanish-Style House). Both homeowners were extremely gracious and gave me some great  background information on their beautiful homes.

I was elated when Virginia, the owner of the Coastal home told me the name of her architect and shared some photos of the home’s interior with me. It is even better inside! I could just picture this home on the New England Coast or even in the California Wine Country. It is classic and elegant, but maintains an inviting level of comfort, which is only natural seeing as how it is home to a family of six. This unique home was designed by architect Dillon Kyle and built by Black Diamond Builders. The interiors were designed by the homeowner, a self-professed “design-junkie”.

The house seems to flow so well and while there is a somewhat formal element, everything is so functional and inviting.}

When you posted about these two houses the other day I played along in my head and picked house number 2. It has more of a country/coastal vibe that I feel more at home with. I immediately thought it would be great to see inside! Wow! It is even better inside!! Those gray doors are AMAZING!! Okay now I'm thinking that I would like to live there. Can you make that happen too!!

How exciting that they BOTH wrote you back! That house is soooo gorgeous! I picked house 1 based on the exterior, but truly LOVE the interior of this one!

Shannon P said...

Incredible. This home is gorgeous, do you think they'll let me move in?! My husband and I are looking to buy our first house, and while it will definitely not be as incredible as this, I'm hoping to accomplish the same welcoming, light, peaceful feeling in our home. This post is definitely bookmarked for color combination inspiration!

What a gorgeous and unique house. I love the floor to ceiling windows - it does look like a house filled with light. I wonder if they use the kitchen table as an island sometimes?

Great post, I am now going to look at your original post!

Averill said...

OK so I said that I would pick home #1 (though it was a close one) yesterday but I totally want to change it to #2 now. The inside is A-MAZE-ING. I'm in love with that kitchen and master bedroom/bathroom. Stunning. I'm so glad the owner reached out to you and shared!

Marcus Design said...

Wow, that is an amazing home! I love the grey walls in the library and those gorgeous grey doors!! Grey always seem to give a classic and soft, yet dramatic look :) Quite a stunning home!

Oh well, although I called my favorite the house No.1 the interior of No.2 is totally gorgeous! Modern country sounds great and I'm amazed with the entire design!

Ralitza said...

Wow! Wow! Wow! What fantastic interiors. I aboslutely love everything about this home - the kitchen, the grey doors, the french windows, the family room. When can I move in? This house would be perfect for where I live -coastal New England.

I almost died when I saw this post. I have driven by this house a dozen times and always come to a slow crawl. I love this house and every bit of its gorgeous architectual detail. The inside is stunning and does the outside justice. Thank you Paloma and Virginia for sharing!
