Today we’re in Concord, Massachusetts to enjoy a light filled home by LeBlanc Design that artfully blends antiques with new items. I adore this home for its use of traditional style, antiques, and soft colors that creates an elegant but also lived-in vibe that’s so artfully welcoming.
The living room features a beautiful grand piano by the window. Architectural trim work reveals the historic roots of the home while comfortable furniture gives it a fresh, unstuffy look.
The family room enjoys a wall of windows with bulls-eye trim (my favorite). A wood burning fireplace warms the light filled home. Note the layering of a smaller rug on the larger sisal rug to help define the conversation area.
Adjacent to the family room is the breakfast nook which also enjoys a bank of windows. The gleaming wood floors run from one room into the other, allowing a nice flow from space to space.
The formal dining room features green and white wallpaper with a coordinating built-in China cabinet. The homeowner incorporates antique furniture, like the dining set, throughout the home. A pair of orange flower arrangements add a punch of color beneath the pretty pendant light.
A vintage desk sits just inside the entryway creating a space for dropping off keys or a small purse. Rather than a grand chandelier, a simple globe provides all the light that’s needed. Note how there’s one, small painting on this wall. It’s okay to leave open spaces like this when decorating your home.
The bedrooms are just as charming as the rest of the light filled home with soft traditional styling. I love that the homeowners incorporated painted floors in this guest bedroom. If you’re a little timid about mixing patterns, the soft colors shown here are a great way to mix fabrics without being overwhelmed.
The master bedroom is beyond gorgeous and reminds me of a room in a luxury hotel. The bedding is simple, allowing you to take in the full beauty of this room with its vaulted, paneled ceiling and beaded chandelier.
A pretty soft blue chair with a floral pillow is tucked into a corner of the master bedroom, creating a cozy nook for reading.
In a shed on the property, you’ll find this sweet little getaway with a cozy fireplace. This would be a place I’d retire to frequently to read a book or magazine. Sometimes you just need a little quiet “me time.”
