Vintage Style Home for a Young Family

"All rooms ought to look lived in, and have so to say, a friendly welcome for the incomer." - William Morris

I am happy to share some photos with you from a young family's home in one of Chattanooga's oldest intown neighborhoods.  The Victorian style house is currently owned by an active young family with two children (and a third on the way) and an assortment of pets.  They have created a welcoming, friendly vibe that can be attributed to the mix of  antiques & family heirlooms, modern paint colors and accessories and a healthy dose of family photos and keepsakes.  Enjoy!

The home's exterior is painted in an unusual charcoal grey with white trim and accents of pink

Entryway with lovely heartpine floors and staircase

Formal living room boasts baby grand piano and the bride's portrait over the mantel

A dedicated playspace is tucked into a corner of the family room

The dining room is an artful mix with a crystal chandelier, fireplace and farmhouse chairs

Another view of the dining room in fresh green with red accents

The mostly neutral master bedroom gets a shot of color from the red pillows and piping on the duvet.

Master bathroom has heart pine floors and a clawfoot tub

Perfectly pink for the princess who sleeps here!

A favorite color scheme of the homeowner is the boy's room in green and blue

The children's bath enjoys a more vibrant color scheme. I love how the mirror reflects the colorful towels!

Ya'all come back!
