THE NEW TRADITIONAL- Mark D Sikes- Part 1

i want to share photographs of my house from the most recent december/ january 2012 house beautiful. not sure exactly how this happened but i’m thrilled!

the creative process of a home is very personal and specific so to have someone or a magazine of which i’ve been a follower of for many years recognize it is such an honor, and for it to be featured on the cover is unbelievable!

i’ve always been obsessed with interiors, architecture, design, landscaping and style- michael and my home is a reflection of this passion! everyday i share with you what inspires me, what i love and who influences me. i’m certain you will see all these reflected in our home.

this blog is about my favorite people, places and things. well, my dear michael is for sure one of my favorite people (our beloved french bulldog lily is the favorite), my home is probably my favorite place and it’s filled with most of my favorite things! home- where i love to be, with those i love and with what i love- i hope you enjoy it as much as i have loved creating it!

i want to thank newell turner, editor in chief of house beautiful, and scot schy, creative director, for featuring our home in this month’s magazine. sean mcgowan for making the introduction and amy neusinger for the very beautiful photography- many, many, many thanks!!!

tomorrow, in part 2 of this post, i will share more photographs and much more about the vision, inspiration and design of the house.

  1. Only gorgeous stars can live in this gorgeous home!!, I LOve every detail! from the super chic wall paper color in the dining room, to the bathroom decor which reminds me to a British colonial decadent style with a little of 20’s style. Chapeau!

  2. Beautiful inside & out! I could live in that patio.

    understated elegance & glam!

    Well done!
