“You can’t judge a book by its cover” our mother often told us when we were young… and when we saw Jane Beiles’ home for the first time last winter, we couldn’t help but be reminded of this. What seems like an antique 1916 home on the outside is definitely not traditional on the inside. Small, closed off rooms were transformed into light-filled open spaces by architect Louise Brooks and RR Builders, and filled with chic but comfortable modern furnishings by Melissa Lindsay of Pimlico Interiors. The house was the perfect mix of old meets new and we were instantly charmed.
So it’s no surprise that we are super excited to see Jane’s wonderful home featured in the April issue of HGTV Magazine (and not only because our very own fiddle leaf fig tree makes an appearance on page 110!) Jane’s sunny personality shines through in the bright and happy interiors captured by photographer Alexandra Rowley and from the moment you enter the front door, you can’t help but feel at home.
While every room is a delight, we fell hard for the back porch which was decked out with winter greens and Christmas lights when we visited; we can only imagine how sweet it would be to spend a summer’s eve entertaining friends there. Perhaps Jane will indulge our fantasies by throwing another party this spring!
