This beautiful home out in the country, is a true getaway for John and Nicole. I started cleaning for them four and a half years ago, and what changes I have seen. Many of my favorite photographs have come from their property and I find my visit each Friday, a perfect ending to my week. Here is the story of their house...
I started cleaning a warm summer a, the week Nicole moved in, back in 2008. John had owned the house for about 5 years and his life was about to change. Each visit I watched Nicole add her personal touches to the house, room by room.
Within a month, the backyard would be filled with guests, celebrating the marriage of Nicole and John. I fell in love with the house and felt so lucky to be able to enjoy the property and witness the growth of this awesome couple.
The master bedroom was then again remodeled shortly after I started cleaning. All the woodwork was painted white and a soft shade of sky blue painted on the walls. New furniture was brought in and it was done. An enormous room filled with charm and warmth. Nicole wanted it to feel like heaven, and indeed she has done that!
The wrought iron canopy bed with hand stitched flower pillow cases and soft blankets graces one side of the room and a wall full of windows with white sheer panels ties it to the sitting room area.
The dining room is attached to the kitchen with a bold splash of color. Red, velveteen chairs add a comfy feel to the area and the colorful, round rug features the quaint nook.
The windows all along the back look out over a rolling carpet of green with a huge metal arbor and filled with a large patch of daisies in the summer. The wild animals make an appearance on a regular basis as well.
The third bedroom is a small bedroom, at one time, theGreen Room, but now is being transformed into Johns office. Here is a photo of it as a bedroomstill.
Twins...a boy and girl! As always, Nicole had wonderful taste and turned the office into an amazing space for two precious babies.
Such a welcoming property deserves a couple more photos of it's natural beauty.
And then there is DoeBelle...
She came just about the time I did to the farm. A gift to Nicole from her Dad for her wedding. She was a baby...so cute and timid and fluffy! We have become friends. I bring hercarrots and feed her apples from the apple tree. She comesrunning when I stand by the fence an call her over. And in the spring, she gets a little, down right crazy!
I feel blessed to know them and take care of their beautiful home every week. It is my getaway from the crazy life of the city. And now I get to watch the two little ones grow and learn how to walk and talk and become little people! Miss Gabby gave me a kiss the other day, which melted my heart!
