Glebe House Tour 2016 – part 2

Posted on Tue, 23 Aug 2016 by KiM

Part 2 of my Glebe House Tour feature.
The study, where pieces of furniture end up that the homeowners cannot agree upon. The desk is a 400 year old Dutch captain’s desk that Corinne did want anywhere else in the house. The painting is by John’s dad and the rug was given to him by a Uzbekistan General. 

I love it.

This French Rococo settee is from 1790 and was bought in the Hague. It has since been recovered in this stunning brocade fabric. This piece John is not really a fan of. I SURE AM!!!

I was drooling over the details. So much so I got down on my knees and elbows to get this photo. 

This small hallway consists of about 5 doors, so the homeowners thought it would be cheeky to hang art featuring doors (see far left for one of 2 pieces). 

The boys’ rooms were off limits because YOU KNOW. BOYS. But their 13 year old daughter’s room was totally adorable and photo-ready so I snapped a few. 

I admittedly was in awe when I realized the master suite had it’s own hallway. *bedroom goals*

I wasn’t supposed to photograph the master suite but I insisted because it was sooo big and beautiful. Thank you Corinne for dressing up the bed for me!

Two of these fixtures hang in this room. SO PRETTY!

The exterior. XOXO

PORCH GOALS! Husband and I were ready to crash on this swing when the tour was over. #ihavethisthingwithporches

Even the porch was styled to perfection.

Pathway leading to the backyard.

This backyard was ideal. Little zones to do everything you could want. Lounge, have a fire, grow some tomatoes….

This was my favourite spot. Under the shade of the trees in the far corner was this fire pit hangout area that utilized some large stones for seating that were formerly part of the stairs at the front of the house. 

Those are sunflowers. The one on the left is 11′ high and isn’t even blooming yet!

Eco says:

I have to say that the house didn't look like much from the outside, but I loved that bedroom!

Elisabeth Mestlin says:

it looks great inside and out.

Summer says:

Have you read Anne Tyler's 'A Spool of Blue Thread' yet? The porch swing is like another character in the book!

KiM says:

I have not read that but I want to now!
