Elizabeth Elsey








You would have to swear this gorgeous home featured in Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles and photographed by Mali Azima was the achievement of a renowned designer. Well I was surprised to learn on Verdigris Vie that it was designed entirely by the homeowner, Elizabeth Elsey, a nurse for over 20 years. Not surprisingly, however, is that she is inspired by all the colors of the beach...especially all spectrums of blue, from the water to the sky. Soul sister all the way! I'm just loving the gorgeous dining room. (Walls: Farrow & Ball Oval Room Blue over Farrow & Ball Light Blue in custom strié finish. Trim: Benjamin Moore Bavarian Cream.) And the custom hand-painted screen by Raymond Goins is stuff my dreams are made of!! Read all about the home and see more beautiful images over here!

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Memorial Day weekend!! Let the summer begin!! :)

There is so much to admire about this place. So tastefully done with a great mix of classic style. And who could resist all that blue...

Thanks for the mention too Erin.

I love the living room with the bookshelves. That artwork above the mantel makes it feel fun and cozy.

Looks like someone has been studying Phoebe Howard! I thought instantly that she was the designer! Incredible! Beautiful!

Good morning, Erin!

How are you doing today? I hope you're excited.... it's FRIDAY! I'm just can't wait to relax during this weekend! :-)

This place is filled with good taste! Nothing substitute that! Talking about that, you should see the opposite of good taste on my "cool or Fool" today! LOL

Thank-you for the closeup of the magnificent chandelier and the lovely screen. I could see myself living with just those two items and the photos were gorgeous.

OMG I love this house. I will have to get my hands on the magazine somehow. A problem since I live in Pennsylvania. I wonder if the home owner would come up here and help me decorate?

Love the luxurious appearance.I'm also planning to build a new house in Chicago foreclosure is it okay if I'll copy your arrangements?

Bria said...

Wow, I wouldn't have expected that either - but it looks wonderful! The colors are really soothing, and it actually looks livable as opposed to something just on the pages of a magazine - while still looking chic and classy. A great combination for sure.

I don't know who manufactures that crytal chandelier, but it is definitely a wow piece in the dining room.
