Southern Living Idea House… another update

Hi! Paige here! The 2012 Southern Living Idea House is moving along. AK and I headed up to Senoia to visit the site along with Frank and Jen from Southern Living. We walked the home and to see the progress…. it is looking great! Scott, John, Tom, and Terry were there to meet us. We install the house next month and we are wrapping up the final details. Here a couple shots of the home.

Scott is sporting the Southern Living 2012 Magnet on his car.

This guest bath is going to be great!

This is Tom. Say Hi Tom!

Then we went outside to unload the fun antiques and vintage finds we had in our van and we found out our van that we lovingly have named “Tracey” was dead!

Here she is being towed away!

Thank goodness we had our great Southern Living team there to help us out! So we rented a car the next morning and on to Scotts to find goodies for the house!


This chest will be in the foyer. We loved the worn white finish.


These little beauties will be in the master bedroom.


This table was the perfect find for the living room. It will be behind the white chesterfield sofa with 2 great lamps from Barbara Cosgrove.

So now we are headed back home for a couple weeks then back to Senoia for the install!

  1. It is looking great — How will you handle the plumbing situation on the floor of the powder room? I am renovating and have the same setup.


  2. It’s going to be beautiful. Love those old horizontal board interior walls.
    Do you know when the house will be open for tours?


  3. Isn’t it fun seeing a “before and after” and the “after” is really soooo much better? I am working on our family farm house, circa 1902 and wish you could see some of the before and after’s. I have been a SL subscriber for years and “I’m not “piddling” as Rick Bragg described in his article this month, I’m working on the house as a “labor of love.” Keep up the good work on the Senoia home.


  4. It is going to be so beautiful!!! I want the green table in the first bath image!! Great finds!

    I have a $100 Gift Card Giveaway from Soft Surroundings if you would like to enter!!

  5. We live 25 miles from the Idea House and cannot wait to see your decorating magic! Artfully placed shabby chic furniture will really help retain the “old” home look and feel.
