We finally made it over to see our dear friends, Janet and Scott, and see how their home remodel turned out. It is fabulous! Mr. Pearl and I met Janet and Scott in college and well, the rest is history. They have three precious boys and are like family to us. They purchased an average home in a wonderful neighborhood and made that average home the "belle of the block." The home is clean and fresh and I did not want to leave!
We enjoyed some good wine, wonderful conversation and the gloriously warm, spring evening. While preparing for all of this wonderfulness, I neglected to throw my camera in the car. The result are these not so great pictures, but I think you all can still enjoy their home. Thanks for your hospitality Janet and Scott. Your home is spectacular!
The entry - my phone does not do this wonderful geometric wallpaper justice. It is to die for and really sets the tone for the entire home.
Off of the entry, the dining room and living room open-up into a large room. The ceiling treatments and chandeliers differentiate the two spaces within and make each one intimate and inviting. The walls are the most amazing white - not at all yellow but a warm grey tone. Janet is supposed to let me know what this wonderful paint is. Love the capiz shell chandelier!
Janet kept apologizing that the "decorating" wasn't finished. Looks great to me! Can't wait to see how she adds more layers.
Fabulous breakfast area built-in.
Don't be surprised if you see this look again - perhaps in my home. (imitation is the best form of flattery) Love the honed marble on the island, soapstone on the perimeter counters and that range! Janet and Scott are foodies, so I am anticipating all of the goodies to come from that puppy!
More kitchen love - the ikat roman shades
Sweet Pea joined me and Janet on the home tour. Here we are in the master bath.
rain shower anyone? - this is Mr. Pearl's number one request in our new home.
I had to show you this wonderful tile in the master shower.
