House Tour: Leontine Linens Owner’s Home

Leontine Linens from Jane Scott Hodges Home

Heirloom quality and forever chic, we didn’t think we could love anything more than Leontine Linens. We didn’t think we could love anything more until we saw the founder of Leontine Linen, Jane Scott Hodges‘s, fabulous New Orleans home, that is!

Leontine Linens from Jane Scott Hodges entry

Jane Scott told One Kings Lane that her “theme for this year has been confidence.” 

Leontine Linens from Jane Scott Hodges entry

As such, she and her husband decided to buck convention and make this fabulous historic home something that would suit the needs of their family, friends and entertaining lifestyle.

Leontine Linens from Jane Scott Hodges living room

As big fans of breaking the rules, we’d say that they did so the very best way: beautifully and well. This gorgeous green? Case and point.

Leontine Linens from Jane Scott Hodges kitchen

A boldly modern kitchen with the fun stools to match is perfect for hosting family and friends.

Leontine Linens from Jane Scott Hodges living room

Abstract art and bold fabrics make this space feel fresh and modern. (Don’t miss that fabulous end table!!)

The more subdued spaces also offer plenty of panache.

Aren’t the bunnies terrific? The perfect splash!

Leontine Linens from Jane Scott Hodges bedroom

If you thought Leontine was only for staid, subdued spaces, think again. With bright colors and choices galore, these heirlooms are great for any space.

Leontine Linens from Jane Scott Hodges bedroom

Stun-ning. Seriously.

Chic, chic, chic, for sure! But would you expect anything less from the founder of the fabulous Leontine? We know we wouldn’t!

White House, Big Charm

White House
New England Home Magazine

 

Good morning, chic readers! We hope you are having a wonderful day and that, if you are in the path of Irma, you are staying safe. And friends affected by Hurricane Harvey, our thoughts and prayers are with you as you rebuild. 

White House
Architectural Digest

 

All of this crazy weather really has us thinking lately about how important our homes are to us.

White House
Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles

 

These stunning white houses are full of charm and character. They are welcoming spaces that we are certain beckon their owners home each night. While we focus a lot on interiors, on how our favorite cozy chair and that painting we couldn’t take our eyes off of make us feel a certain way, the exteriors of our house can–and should–do that exact same thing. 

White House with dormers
Patrick Ahearn Architect

 

If a home should be anything at all, we think it should be welcoming. Window boxes and a trellis covered in vines are two of the best ways we can think of to take a home’s exterior from plain to positively darling. It’s simple touches like this that make a home feel loved and lived in. And don’t our special spaces deserve to be cared for?

Rob Lowe's White House
Architectural Digest

 

We all know that bigger isn’t always better and good things can come in small packages, but this stunning facade is positively breathtaking. The symmetry is spectacular.

White House with hydrangeas
New England Homes Magazine

 

That being said, there’s something undeniably charming about a lack of symmetry. Maybe it’s because hydrangeas our are favorite flowers, but we think this giant display is breathtaking. We love them in any shade, but these pretty blues and lilacs top our list.

white house
BHG

 

Landscaping is obviously one of the most important ways to make your home feel unique. While we love flowers and big blooms, there’s something stately about a classic cluster of Boxwoods flanking the front door. Well-maintained foliage always contributes something special to a home’s exterior and gives the sense that there is a staid, lovely interior beyond the front door.

White House with red door
Architectural Digest

 

We are suckers for black and white, but a splash of color is always welcome. A set of red front doors adds an undeniably farmhouse feel to this impeccably manicured lot.

White House
BHG

 

There’s no doubt about it: Adding exterior color increases curb appeal. Plus, it’s easy to tell visitors that yours is the house with the red roof! Porches add character in droves and make for great porch sitting, especially during the cool fall months. 

 

What are your favorite ways to add character to a home’s exterior? Do you have any home improvement projects on your wish list?

Thank you so much for stopping by today. We always love seeing you!
