The Entrance

A home’s main entrance is definitely important. After all, it tends to be the first space that guests will enter! And, oh, boy does this foyer pack a punch!

A beautiful wainscot treatment appears in this space of the home, which is crafted by using chair rail and Fashion Forward Scene III baseboard. Not to mention, it also incorporates shiplap installed vertically for added visual interest!

Also, can we take a moment to appreciate the grand, yet rustic entryway mirror?

The Mudroom

Mudroom’s don’t have to be dingy, dull and dirty. Just take this one as inspiration! The sea of soft blues and easily washed tiles give this space its character! And what’s not to love about the floor-to-ceiling tongue and groove wall paneling, which offers this space a country, farmhouse feel!

The Living Room

The living room is where people will spend a great deal of their time and where they socialize with their guests, so why not give it the attention it deserves by making it lavishing and gorgeous? Well, that’s what Sarah did! Between the coffer-styled ceiling and the show-stopping marble fireplace, the architectural elements in this space are marvelous!

The Powder Room

It’s time to powder your nose in this opulent powder room! This space not only looks but also feels like a treasured jewel box due to the gold-accented faucet, marble countertops, star-inspired tiling, and rustic wood finishes.

Grand interior finishings encased around the vanity offer a custom and luxe look without breaking the bank! Fun fact, you can get the same look by using a combination panel mouldbaseboard and chair rail!

We love how the crown moulding pops with a crisp-coat of white paint which perfectly contrasts with Sarah exquisite wallpaper selection on the ceiling. However, the power of crown moulding not only lies within its ability to offer a luxurious and grand appeal, but how it also offers a deceptive heightened-illusion that makes the space appear taller than it actually is! So, now you can look up and gaze at the starry ceiling.

The Sunroom

Whether it be the flowers blooming, blue skies roaming, autumn leaves falling or snowfall dwindling, there is no better room to take in the views. The stunning elements in this sunroom are sure to impress. From the champagne colored drapes to the tongue and groove wall paneling and the gorgeous seating arrangement, this timeless space will never go out of style.

Sarah’s home exudes a luxurious beauty that really highlights how it is truly down to the details.
