Recently we took a tour of Paula Deen’s home in Savannah. I mentioned in that post, that though I like Paula’s current home a lot, I really loved the home she previously lived in. I had seen photos of that home in Paula’s magazine many years ago.
Also, Paula wrote a book in 2010 and when it arrived, I was happy to see she did include lots of pictures from her own home in addition to tours of several other beautiful homes in Savannah. Though I can’t share all the pictures in that book for obvious reasons, I scanned in four pictures to give you an idea of how her previous home looked. It had a more casual feel than her current home, more personal.
In the BNOTP Library: Paula Deen’s Savannah Style
Author: Paula Deen
3 Things I Like About This Book:
- Photography is wonderful! Book is divided up by the four seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Each section is divided into various topics and all are delightful and a fun read. Some of the topics Paula covers are: Porch Livin’ (loved all the porches in this book!) Courtyard Gardens, Wrought Iron, Wicker, Music Rooms, Book Nooks, Silver & Savannahians, Flea Market Treasures, Holiday Tables and Holiday Decorating, Comfort Rooms, Eat-in Kitchens, Seashell Crafts and Furniture and a lot more. Paula’s home is interspersed throughout the book with other homes featured in the book.
- In addition to Paula’s beautiful home, we get to go inside several other wonderful homes in Savannah, including some absolutely adorable Tybee Island cottages. So this book is a mixture of elegant rooms, cottage rooms, restored cabins, historic Savannah homes and wonderful island cottages. So many beautiful rooms!
- Paula takes us inside a rustic dock cabin that she restored and it’s delightful.
I love the way the book is written because it’s Paula talking to us as if we are sitting with her at her kitchen table having a chat. Her sincere personality really shines through in this book.
Below you’ll find 4 pictures from this book showing Paula’s previous home. It had me at the porch! 🙂 This book showcases a number of wonderful porches, two of which are from Paula’s home.
This was the entry foyer in Paula’s previous home.
The living area in her previous home. I love the red Buffalo Check curtains.
This was her kitchen in her previous home. I really liked the fireplace here. The hood over the stove is very different from her current custom-made copper hood. She always likes to have a table in the kitchen, the way kitchens used to be. She explains why in this book.
