A Home Surprise {Home Tour}


Ever since Napoleon Avenue has been under construction, my route home changed somewhat. Instead of taking Napoleon Avenue, I have been cutting through Broadmoor (Vendome to Nashville) and taking S. Galvez to Jefferson Avenue. I immediately fell in love with a charming charcoal gray cottage on South Galvez.


The cottage style of this home reminds me of my Atlanta home. I love the cottage style. Check out my former Atlanta home, Wisteria Hill.

This home came on the market recently, but J and I were never able to make it to an Open House. Bummer!

To my surprise, the home recently sold and was featured on a blog that I follow, Shaun Smith Home.


I have been to the shop of the same name on Magazine Street but not very familiar with Shaun Smith, the designer, since he was not in the shop both times I visited. The shop is stylish, modern yet traditional. It is a mixture of antiques and new pieces. I love the mix.


Lo and behold, the home was renovated and designed by Shaun Smith himself. Surprise! The home was his own home, and I must say a work of art. I love the soothing colors used throughout. I can certainly see why the home sold on its first day on the market.

Take a tour with moi…
