I was so happy to see my friend Marsha Mason recently featured in Victoria magazine where she is sharing five design secrets for creating a gracious home. Marsha and I met several years ago thanks to Instagram, and I immediately fell in love with her traditional and formal, yet warm and cozy Southern style. Marsha lives in the most charming 1927 Tudor cottage in Columbus, Georgia where she receives frequent visits from her precious grandchildren.
It is hard to imagine, but this storybook cottage was not always so charming. “When we bought the house it was an absolute dog. It was in terrible shape and was ugly beyond belief,” Marsha told me. In the process of bringing the property back to life, she also discovered a new career in design as the dramatic transformation drew attention from others seeking input on their renovations. Let’s take a tour with images are from Victoria magazine and Eliza Morrill Photography, as credited below.
This home is enchanting, and I could not love it more! To learn Marsha’s Five Design Secrets for Creating a Gracious Home, please visit Victoria magazine.
