This is the fourth post in a series about my tour of the Abercorn Place 2010 Southern Living Idea House in my hometown, Senoia, Georgia.
Here are ALL the Posts in this series -
House and Town details plus the Kitchen
The Top Floor - entertainment room and craft room
The Master Suite
The Main Floor - mostly the living room & dining room
Laundry and Children's Bedrooms
Family Room and More
I took tons of photos and have plenty more to share. Today I am posting about the main floor. This will mostly include the living room, dining room, and hallway. The kitchen, scullery, and keeping room photos were in my first post. Click here to see the floor plan.
When you first walk in the door, the foyer is actually a hallway and stairway. A turn to the right takes you into the living room.
The paintings in the house were wonderful. I'm not fond of the gold frames. I think I would have preferred to see them framed in dark wood. The paintings are terrific and you should notice them before the frames. To be fair to the decorator, the gold frames add just a bit of glitz and glamor. If they were framed in dark wood, the room would seem less special. I'm being overly picky here and thinking totally about personal preferences. I would love all of it at a friends house.
The main floor also has a wonderful side porch. I'll post about that and the courtyard in my next post. Let me just say, they are fabulous!
I have several more posts about the Idea House. If you are enjoying them, you really should become a follower to my blog so you won't miss them! Plus, I plan to go back again when it's decorated for Christmas. One of the guides told us a little about what's planned and it sounds wonderful.
