This week we’re continuing our tour inside the beautiful Victorian home belonging to Governor Roy and Marie Barnes. If you missed any of the previous posts, you’ll find links to those at the end of this post.
The Barnes’ have a dream kitchen! The red accents really pop against the cream/ivory cabinets and the black island. The island is distressed and has red tones showing through in the distressed areas. Definitely looks like UGA fans live here!
Marie’s has a fun rooster collection and you can see part of it displayed along the top of the kitchen cabinets.
The kitchen chandelier was decorated for the holidays.
The rooster painting above the stove hood was a find on a trip to New Orleans.
A whimsical display makes such a great centerpiece on the island. I love how the refrigerator is hidden behind cabinetry. That’s exactly my favorite treatment for appliances in the kitchen!
Toward the breakfast area of the kitchen I spied a fabulous hutch.
A collection of baking Santas look right at home here in the kitchen. Behind all the Santas there’s a display of cute gingerbread houses and pretty snow globes.
You may remember this darling table from a previous post. This is where the grandchildren normally have their lunch when visiting. The monogram wreaths represent the name of each grandchild..
I also shared this table for Tablescape Thursday, too.
It has the same cute leg treatment we saw on the children’s table. Table leg covers are from a catalog called Chasing Fireflies.
The kitchen tree is a candy fantasy. It’s goes beautifully with the peppermint dishware on the table nearby. The colorful glass rooster collection in each window is beautiful with light shining through. Love how Marie has those displayed. Did you notice the roosters on the breakfast table chairs?
Marie said, “I put up 14 artificial trees and two live trees, each year . Many of the artificial trees have lights that coordinate with the room theme (i.e. red lights for the boy’s bulldog (UGA Bulldogs) room theme and pink lights for the girl’s sugar plum fairy room. I do use some prelit trees, however, I usually add lights too them because the more lights the merrier. On most of the 14 trees, every light is put on and comes off to be stored each year.”
I know Marie’s grandchildren must absolutely love it all! I can’t wait to share the grandson’s and granddaughter’s rooms in an upcoming post!
Such a great way to surround this kitchen tree…with gingerbread men!
Can you read the sign Santa is holding? It says, “Grandma’s Motto: Squeeze ‘em up, Sugar ‘em Up, Send ‘em Home.”
Even the back hallway got a dose of Christmas…
Another beautiful tree…
Coming up next: Family room and beautiful backyard with two outdoor fireplaces, great for entertaining.
