So, you see that cover of this month's Veranda magazine?!?
Well, that home is located right here in teeny tiny Americus, GA!

Maybe I'm biased because I live here now, but I think this place is simply perfection.
I want this guy to design my new house.
Soooooo bad...

His foyer is amazing.
T used to sell pine straw to this guy in high school.
I wonder if he can introduce me?  

You don't see too many marble statues in Americus

Look at those painted floors!
I'm dying, right now!

And this living room?
Again, love!
The gray walls, the antiques, the use of blue and white!

The funny part is the owner/designer of this house is 90 years old!
Apparently, true style never ages!
This place is so fresh to me!

This guy lives right behind T's parents -
And he owns a bunch of peacocks, who roam the neighborhood - Btw, did you know peacocks sound like cats?  We are housesitting for my in-laws this week and I kept hearing these cats meowing.  No, they are peacocks.  Weird, but true.

This should have been my senior quote...

And here is the house!

Would you not love for this to be your driveway?
I now have a new inspiration file - 
Dream Driveways

If you get a chance, check out the article in Veranda!
Hope you peacocks had a wonderful Monday!

Well that is cool! What a gorgeous facade! But how do you keep those hydrangeas in pots watered?

It is amazing! I think I could move right on into that house and not want to change a single thing. Love the colors, love the floors, and that driveway is fantastic! It would be like driving into a fairy tale every time you came home!

Wow ... hands down, one of the more amazing homes I've ever seen. I'm seriously in love. How can he, at 90, have more updated taste than I do at 29?!?!

Pinecone said...

It is simply beautiful!!

Bethanie said...

love, love, love!! I was amazed when you said the man was 90, I hope I have good taste when Im that old!! When we lived in Savannah there were some peacocks that lived across from the boys home...they do make quite a racket!! Hope you're having a great summer!

Kat said...

Oh my goodness, I'm in love. What a fabulous house, both inside and out!!!

Aubrey {All Things Bright and Beautiful} said...

I am most impressed that this guy is NINETY years old!!! That is insanely cool because truly, I would have never guessed from the chic and fresh house...So T, you want to introduce me, too??? (c:

I'm in love with that house (both the interior and exterior)!!! So neat that your neighbor was in Veranda! And so neat that the owner/decorator is 90! I hope I'm that active when I'm 90 :)
