House Tour: Southern elegance

I have decided to make every Wednesday a “House Tour” feature. The house tour would be of a home I saw in a magazine, a fellow blogger, family or friends. I love looking at people’s homes just like everyone else.That how we get inspiration for our own homes as well as finding out how others live. If you have a home that you are proud off and would like to feature it on my website, you can e-mail me at . I would love to show it off.

Today I would like to show you the home of retired major leagues baseball player, Jeff Blauser and his wife, Andee. Their home was created to cater to the whole family which includes their two kids. “Kids’ pool parties and sleepovers, family dinners and impromptu gatherings on the loggia are the norm at the Blauser house. Interiors are a graceful blend of Southern elegance and down-home Southern hospitality, reflecting Andee’s Louisiana upbringing. “

“I love the beauty of neutrals,” says Andee, who warmed to a dreamy backdrop of cream and taupe, with blue and chocolate accents. Elegance was key, but so were furnishings that would perform. Antique beams, oiled wood floors, and nubby fabrics tone down any pretense of dressiness and are virtually indestructible. “Both Jeff and I love antiques, so we wanted to go that route,” says Andee. “We also mixed in new things because it makes rooms unique and more interesting. We don’t want to look like everyone else.”

I love the artwork and the pop of color the bases give the room.

How neat is to have the host and hostess chairs monogrammed.

I love the design on the chairs as well as the colors in the kitchen. Mmm, I see cake, I wonder what flavor it is. Such a beautiful walnut flooring.

I love the arched doors! It gives the room a feminine feeling as well as being elegant. How about the little tables? I wouldn’t mind having something like this at my house.

“The master bedroom’s custom bed has a scalloped wood canopy and headboard upholstered in blue velvet. A glazed blue linen covers the underside of the canopy and the wall behind the headboard. “
