Dixie Delights

5.20.2011

A great part of hosting a linky party is that sometimes I come across a new blog full of eye candy.
That is exactly what happened this week. I was going through the links and spied this gorgeous room transformation and then that led me to studying this new blog even further.

I want to introduce you to a new young blogger, Amanda, who just happens to live right here in Georgia and her home is full of traditional southern charm with antiques plus a mix of young modern style.
Amanda says she loves delightful decor, perfect parties and being queen bee in a home full of boys.

This is the picture in the link that captured my eye. My oh my what a great banquette. This is in their basement that they have recently transformed.

This is what the space looked like before.


Welcoming entry. Love that door.

Nice big gorgeous kitchen.

 I spy antlers on the wall.
Nursery

Love these twin beds and the bedding in her boys' room.

Another part of the basement transformation is this t.v. room. They designed and did all the work themselves.

There is so much more. I asked Amanda if she was a professional decorator and she said no. She just does her house and enjoys it.

I hope you will go over and say a friendly hello to Amanda at Dixie Delights.
Just click on the house tour tab at the top of her blog for some of her transformation photos or just keep scrolling through her posts and enjoy.

Thank you, Amanda for letting us into your home.

    I will run over there now and take a look around.
    Her framed jersey reminds me of your framed antique bathing suit!
    Great minds!

  23. I know when I was her age, I didn't have a home that looks as wonderfully tasteful and beautiful as Amanda's. It took me years to hone my decor skill and she's got it so young!
