House Tour: Martha’s Vineyard Charmer!

Martha's Vineyard House Tour entrance

We all have them, those favorite places in the world that we love to return to again and again, year after year. For our family, one of those places has always been Martha’s Vineyard. We love quaint, charming places on the water with a few good shops and a few good restaurants. When it comes to those, Martha’s Vineyard is hard to beat. As if we needed anything else to love about this wonderful town, this beautiful home by Liliane Hart Interiors has just put us right over the top–and has us dreaming about a return trip! Take a peek. We think you’ll love it just as much as we do.

House Tour: B.D. Jeffries Owners’ Buckhead Home

B.D. Jeffries owner's home entrance hall

We all have them, those favorite shops that are our must-visits every time we go to a certain town. 

B.D. Jeffries owner's living room

For us, in Charlotte and Atlanta, one of those stores is B.D. Jeffries.

So it is a particular treat to share the Buckhead home of B.D. Jeffries owners Brad and Debbie Weitz. 

B.D. Jeffries owner's abstract art

One look and it was evident that their house, like their store, was going to be a fast, fast favorite.

B.D. Jeffries owner's books

This is one of those homes that should be beside “chic” in the dictionary. 

B.D. Jeffries owner's foyer

There’s really no other word.

At once austere and well-collected,

The right mix of antique and new,

B.D. Jefferies owner's dining room

It is abundantly clear that the aesthetic that inspires the store we love so much has also inspired its owners’ home.

B.D. Jefferies owner's bedroom

Layered, soft and oh-so-cozy, this is the type of bedroom that lends itself to curling up with a pile of books and staying for awhile. 

B.D. Jefferies owner's porch

We love porches that blend the outside and inside seamlessly. Everything about this porch is perfection.

B.D. Jefferies owner's home

And the exterior is so utterly charming, a signal of the graciousness that awaits inside.

We couldn’t love this gorgeous home any more! What is your favorite part?
