~ Mary Carol Fall Open House Part 2 ~

Our tour continues, we last left off in her powder room. I know a strange way to end the days tour, but I wanted to start today's tour from the sunporch on. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves, I came away with "so" many ideas, I hope you do to.













I want a table like this outside the shop on the south side against the brick! 









The tour concludes today of her sweet back porch, looks pretty even  looking from the outside in. I hope you aren't too bored yet, I have pictures of the shops left. They are spell binding, I hope you find the time to swing back to view those.

Hi Lynne...

Ohhh...I have sooo enjoyed this tour of Nell Hill's home! Everything really is gorgeous! Don't you just love that white table between the two chairs on the sun porch? Love the tall scroll piece on the front! I really do love everything that she does. You know, I think that you and Nell Hill have the same design style! As I was looking through the photos of her home, it reminded me so much of your beautiful home, Lynne! And...you are every bit the designer that Nell Hill is...for sure!!! Thanks again, sweet friend...sure got some great decorating ideas from the tour!

Hope that you and Bill are having a super sweet Sunday, Darlin'!

Love ya,
Chari

All the fall touches add so much to a open house.I love that outside garden table, looks like old metal, maybe French? You sure lucky to get invited. Thanks again. Richard

Again - Thanks for sharing your visit there. I have really enjoyed the tour and looking forward to seeing more. She has so many great ideas - I just need to get motivated and do a little more decorating of my own.

Oh my, I am SO enjoying this tour!!! I could have browsed over that fabulous house for hours!!! :) So glad you took many good clear pictures to share! I've gained a lot of inspiration! Loved the way the pumpkins and gourds were displayed caddie-cornered in the urns! Swiping that idea! :)

The Decorative Dreamer said...

OMG! So much to love here! I love all the tablescapes for sure, and the pumpkins and the hutch,and the porch, etc. Can you tell how much I love this house? LOL! Seriously, I really am enjoying seeing all the beautiful architectural features and the gardens of the home though. It is just stunning! Thanks again for continuing the tour!

Lynne, the pictures are so lovely. Her house is just charming and I just adore the pumpkins she has here and there.

So sweet of you to share this wonderful experience with us.

Oh my goodness, what a beautiful home to tour, Lynne. I have to go back to what I missed, just arrive home last night from Florida. TAJ's room is more like a loud apple green on one wall but the baby nursery is more of a minty green....Christine

I loved all of it but I especially liked the idea of the moss under the pumpkins..everything is just beautiful...and of course we are not bored! Are you kidding??? :)

Rettabug said...

There's MORE??? Oh my, Lynne! I came over to tell you how much I enjoyed the first part of the tour. Outstanding photos & descriptions.
Since I doubt that I'll ever get to go visit MC's place, I truly appreciate all the effort you went through to share it with us/me. I'm drinking in each photo & making mental notes of things I'd like to try doing.

Mega Grateful Hugs,
Rett

How the heck did I miss part two? I'm so glad you posted a link Lynne! Wowser more delish eye candy! Do you see that white table/plant stand in the first pictures? Well I have almost the same one in blue. I've never seen another like it so this was a thrill to find one here! I'm also crazy about the little girl statue holding the pumpkins...Reminds me of the one in Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil (Love that movie!) *winks* Vanna
