A tour of Leah's beautiful home!!

Yesterday I had the privilege of visiting my friend Leah's new home in Lake Oswego. WOW!!!! I should have worn my drool bib, that's all I can say.... After visiting this absolutely breathtakingly beautiful home, I just felt like going home, getting rid of everything and start anew.... Some of my favorite people in the whole wide world were there, and we had the most wonderful time (and some delicious food!).

Leah has the most exquisite taste, and her collections are truly lovely!!

Leah is an artist and paints the most beautiful coveted paintings, including this gorgeous cow... You may have seen some of her paintings on my previous Barn House posts...

Her collection of statues made me stop in my tracks to admire them...

Leah is also launching a new beautiful wearable collection and  we had some fun trying out her outfits
(Lara, Robin and Cindy in the boudoir...)

One of the things that struck me the most are the beautiful chandeliers and sconces Leah displays around her home...

Love this old sign in the kitchen...

Cindy getting her creative juices flowing to make an old broom tassel for the door...

(Lara, Julie, Lisa and Robin getting ready to feast...)

Sweet Natalie and her sweetie Hattie...

(how appropriate that I was wearing white that day....??!!)

I was able to snap a picture of Joe before her scolded me with his finger...

In the beautiful garden is the hidden jewel.... A darling little cottage which will become Leah's private studio...!!! It is filled with the most incredible treasures and I can't wait to see it done (I promised Leah I would come and help her get it together, it will be fun to play with all her treasures!!)

This was truly a day to remember... Leah is the most gracious hostess and a guoooooorgeous and super fun gal to hang out with... Thank you so much, Leah!!! I didn't get a good picture of her, so I borrowed this one Robin took when they were at my house... I hope that's okay, Robin!!!!

And to all my sweet friends there, it was so much fun spending time together and I can't wait to see you all again!!!! Love you all!!

  12. Isabella those are incredible photos, I totally know what you mean about purge all your stuff to get that look, oh how I wish I could make myself do it. I love the look so much. Hugs Florence

  13. Just a tenth of her talent...please, if I could only have just a tenth! Love the placement of the chandis...inspired!

  14. Leah's home and garden are absolutely gorgeous!!! What a treat for you to take us over for a visit, Isabel. p.s. I really like your new blog design

  15. Isabel...what you didn't say:

    Here's someone that offers to help someone, she barely knows, and give up a full day to help "unpack" boxes and do all the dirty work. Who does that? This is all offered on top of the fact that she has 4 incredible children and an equally incredible husband. You are a truly gracious, generous person who I am lucky and privileged to know.

  16. Now, who wouldn't want to live in this most gorgeous home? I just found your blog and what a beautiful blog it is.

  17. Gorgeous home! I so wish I could hang out with you all. ;) Thank you for sharing Leah's beautiful home.
