It's been quite a while since we posted a home on here that I would describe as 'stately', but this home is just that. Refined and indulgently romantic, this classic house tour is giving me all the on-the-verge-of-spring feels. While my personal style skews just a bit more casual, given the right home (a space with more historic detail, high ceilings and plenty of square footage), I could happily dwell in this kind of design.
What I love most about the style of this home is that while it is incredibly refined, the pieces are still an approachable mix. For example - that organic coffee table is not what I would have guessed would grace this gorgeous living room, but it's absolutely the perfect touch. And instead of a gilded coffee table (which is what I would have expected) we have a gilded etagere.
There are also some playful elements like the chandelier and the mini velvet stool that keep things from feeling too precious.
Sidenote: remind me when my climbing roses come out to snip a branch of them like this!! So romantic!
In the dining room, I love how every piece is classic except the super modern lines of the dining room table. A lovely juxtaposition of style! Plus another touch of organic with the vase full of wild florals. That ochre yellow color keeps things feeling happy instead of stuffy, if you ask me!
I wish I could see more of the kitchen! It feels a little hodgepodge, in the most charming way. Painting everything white keeps it cohesive, but how funny are those cutesy open shelves? Not at all what I would have expected! Again, the touches of modern in the stools and even the sink faucet help balance things out.
And then there's the bedroom. Romance alert! I so wish I had space for a four-poster bed in my own home! I loved the turned wood on this one. Refined elegance is the name of the game here, and in the bath as well...
When you're keeping each room this simple each detail stands out and this home make sure that it doesn't go unnoticed. How to get the look of this stunning space? Well, we can only try our best...

I'm surprised by how much this classic style feels like a breath of fresh air. It makes me realize how repetitive a lot of the homes out there are right now! I couldn't even pick a favorite element, because each one feels so essential,
