Open House Party – Kelly of  The Essence of Home

by Sherry
Welcome to the Open House Party.
Thank you for helping make this party a success.  I am always in
awe of the creativity and talent shown by bloggers.
You guys never disappoint!
Today’s featured home belongs to Kelly of  The Essence of Home.   Kelly and Kim at
Savvy Southern Style are sisters and both these ladies have such wonderful
style.  I think they should join forces and begin a  decorating business.  I bet you
will agree when you see the tour of Kelly’s beautiful home.
The Essence Of Home  is a beautiful new blog.  I hope you will
visit to see more of this gorgeous home.
Thank you Kelly for sharing your home at the Open House Party.

This was exactly what I needed to see, Sherry! Kelly has the same armoire that I have — now why do I think mine is so ugly and hers is so gorgeous, LOL?! Isn't that how it goes sometimes. Thank you for hosting!

Kelly's home is adorable….so much personality. What I love about her place is that, altho she follows the popular trends, she still manages to make it her own and not a reflection of everyone elses. She is so talented.
Thanks, sister friend, for hosting.

Sherry January 12, 2012 - 3:53 pm

She has a beautiful home! Thanks for hosting.

Amy @MaisonDecor January 12, 2012 - 4:03 pm
