The homes of Rountree never stop fascinating me. It’s delightful to walk in the evening because (and this might make me sound super creepy) but you can see inside the big cheerful windows that are all lit up.
I’ve spotted massive pieces of beautiful antique furniture, perfectly arranged gallery walls, bold and dramatic light fixtures, and families and friends sitting around tables playing games.
Rountree seems to be a neighborhood of people who appreciate beauty and their homes reflect that appreciation.
This week I got to wander through another one.
@jennfortner let me come and walk through her home and even though it is not huge, it took me longer than it’s ever taken me to shoot a home because I was so busy staring at all of the beautiful art she and her sister have painted and her beautiful collection of plants.
She let me stroll through her backyard which is a haven of raised beds, massive hastas, and roses of Sharon.
After stopping to drool over her back sunroom and her cozy and moody tv room I thought my surprises were over.
Then she walked me into her library and there I could’ve lived the rest of my days. Scroll through the pictures and you’ll see why😍
Jen’s home is another reflection of care, attention, and love.
You can tell the difference in a plant that was bought big and a plant that has been nurtured for years and her mama Pilea hanging in the window is not only old but has become the giver of life to new babies in Jen’s home and homes all through the neighborhood.
My favorite pics are definitely the bathroom and the library, but I also love the one where you catch a glimpse of Jen. Also I love the one where you can stand in her front room and see all the way to the back of the house. Then of course the little handmade mobile in her sons room.
Actually I just love all of these pics♥️
Which one is your favorite?
