WELCOME to another fabulous at the picket fence…Parade of Homes Home Tour!
We are so honored to have our friend, Yvonne from Stone Gable, with us here today!! She has the most amazing style and design sensibility! Her house is always so warm and inviting….just like Yvonne herself! We had the privilege of meeting Yvonne at the Haven Conference this year and it would be an understatement to say she was one of the most genuine, kind and warm ladies we’ve met! It’s a privilege for us to share a peek into her gorgeous home with you today!
//WELCOME TO STONEGABLE//
Hi! I’m Yvonne and I’m so thrilled to be part of the At the Picket Fence Parade of Homes and getting to visit with all of you here today!
StoneGable is a farmhouse inspired home we built 18 years ago. It sits among the bucolic farmland of Lancaster County Pa… the heart of the Amish country. This land is rich in history and deep in tradition.
In making over my living room I wanted a room that was on the formal side but very comfortable. The old living room furniture was pretty but not conducive to plopping down to read a book or have a nice chat.
This furniture is comfortable… and stain resistant!
Both very important when you have light colored living room furniture!
This is a room that mixes the old and the old!!! Don’t you love giving old pieces a second decor life? I sure do!
I was most excited about updating this room!
Getting rid of my 18th Century Mahogany tables and chairs was out of the question… so I painted the chairs and reupholstered them. What a job!!!!
Truly the kitchen is the heart of my home. I love love love to cook and entertain, so this is a kitchen that get tons of use!
It has a real modern farmhouse feel.
Say HI to Earl! He is the guardian of my kitchen!
Aprons are a part of my “uniform” around the house!!! This is my “summer apron collection”! Don’t you love this fun dish hook? I got it at Luckett’s a few years ago.
I like to call our family room… cozy! That’s code for… boy is it dark!!! Taking pictures of this room is a bear!!!! I don’t think I have ever tried to get a shot of the whole (well, almost whole) room. This is a first! Do you have a room that you are always and forever will be changing and rearranging? This is mine!
I have plans to knock out the exterior wall and add tons of windows. The older I get the more I need light! But that project is down the road a bit.
This room is not done (surprise!)… keep an eye out for some big changes in the fall!!! Hint… hardwoods and painted furniture!
//J & J GUEST ROOM//
The J and J stands for Jacquie and Jon… this room was my sweet daughter’s bedroom. It was the very first room we worked on after Jacqueline got married.
Out went the pink and frills and pom-poms. We replaced her girly room with a serene bedroom for any guests… and of course our very favorite’s… Jacquie and Jon.
When the weather is tolerable you will find me out here puttering around my potting bench.
I hope you have enjoyed visiting StoneGable and will come back often….I post everyday about American Farmhouse Living!!!!
My door is always open to friends… old and new!
