My Sister's Home

Hi Bloggerettes!  I just love my sister's house.  It's warm, cozy and elegant and she loves pink.   Do you wanna see it?  I thought so. Here's a few photos just full of eye candy.
Her faux mantle really fools the eye.  We found the mantle in an antique shop.  It was that ugly dark brown but it had great bones.
She even tiled the wall behind it and inserted electric logs.
Isn't her venetian mirror 2die4!

Don't you just love the screen. 
Be sure to check out her vintage flamingo collection.

She has a huge collection of majolica, most of which is vintage.
We were out junkin when we found this fabulous french cabinet.
Just look at all the pretty majolica!

We both love silver.  Check out that mirrored chest in the background.  Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, loveliness.

Hope you enjoyed the tour.  Now excuse me while I go cry because I miss her so much.  But, I'll be seeing her in about a month and we already have some "serious sister" time planned.

How gorgeous! I love the faux mantle, saw one of those at Habitat the other day and was sooo tempted, but we already have a fireplace so I didn't think the husband would appreciate it very much! I love your blog, see you're a contributor to Belle Inspiration too? So happy to be your newest follower!

gor-GEOUS!!!! I love it Sissie. Especially the venetian mirror and mirrored chest. So beautiful. The colors are so soothing and pretty too.

Shellbelle said...

I'm drooling over your sister's room. Her collection of vintage flamingos and the faux mantle is absolutely gorgeous! Of course, you must know I love flamingos, so she should be happy you didn't publish her address.

Lovely, lovely, lovely!

Hi dear Sissie.Sorry I am so late in commenting but I do have a good reason. We sold our house a few days ago.We are so happy as the housing market is slow in this country as it is in yours.We will be moving in three weeks so busy times ahead. I will try to post and comment regularly. I love your sisters house. So beautiful and tasteful.Thank you for sharing.
Have a great day.

No surprise all is still beautiful in your world and I totally thank you for taking us to "sister's" home and letting us peek's FABULOUS!!!!!! :)
If the mirrored chest becomes missing soon...I stole it. I am totally an honest thief! haha
Miss you and I'm so glad to be home to catch up!!!!!!

Your sister's house is so elegant and cozy at the same time. Her wall color is very similar to my bedroom wall color and I love it.
