Today’s stunning home tour is not only beautiful … it’s intoxicating! Aiken House and Gardens is one of the first blogs I started reading so it holds a special place in my heart. Carolyn’s charming, romantic home draws you in and captivates your senses. Once you start exploring her home and gardens, hours pass before you know it! But don’t believe me … see for yourself!
Carolyn’s blog is aptly named Aiken House and Gardens because it’s just as much about the gardens as it is about the house. Both are stunning and when you walk through her gardens you’re convinced you’ve died and gone to heaven. But more about the gardens later …
Soft colors, beautiful florals, elegant lace, warm wood floors … all come together to create one of the most romantic homes you’ll ever see, both inside and out. Here, the dining area of the kitchen exudes flirtatious charm, complete with a chaise tucked in a bay window.
Carolyn’s home is more than just romantic … it’s functional as well. Plenty of beautiful white cabinets grace her kitchen and a large double window allows for ample viewing of the garden spaces just outside.
A cozy reading nook with lace curtains and script pillows. Carolyn’s house possesses all the wonderful architectural details that we know and love when we think of an “charming older home.”
Of course, Carolyn’s living room is just as charming and romantic as the rest of her house. Are you starting to see why her blog is one of the first I started reading and why I’m still a huge fan of hers today?
Blue and red is one of my favorite color combinations, especially when paired with white. Carolyn’s charming romantic home has Victorian charm throughout. The Victorians were famous for bringing the outside in.
This one is fresh and light with its white paint and mirrors.
The master bedroom is a beauty! The fireplace is flanked by a pretty Victorian style door.
The gardens also have a beautiful boathouse …
Here, a glimpse of the summer garden. This tour could go on and on … but you can just as easily visit Carolyn over at Aiken House and Gardens to see more. I’ll warn you now though, once you’re there you’ll never want to leave!
Carolyn, thank you for letting me feature your home. It was truly an honor!!
If you love Carolyn’s style as much as I do, you can also follow her on Pinterest.
