My sweet friend Hanna of Gadabout Creative had her home (well, technically, now former home) published in Southern Living recently and I just had to share it with all of you! Hanna, her husband, and their precious daughter, Eaddy, were living in Louisville, Kentucky (they’ve since relocated to Charleston, South Carolina) and Hanna decorated the most beautiful home there. Below, explore images from the Southern Living feature mixed with some snippets taken from Hanna’s fabulous instagram account. The darling family is now expecting a little boy (a friend for baby Gabe!) and I can’t wait to see how Hanna decorates his nursery! I hope you enjoy this little tour!
I love the entry’s antique bench peeking out below the raffia covered console. Also note that lovely trio of Indian birds framed together…perfection!
The light-filled living room has curtains and chairs in Lee Jofa’s Althea chintz and a cozy velvet sofa and ottoman (you know I love a bullion fringe!).
More of the lovely living room (how stunning is the carved swan detail on the striped chair on the right?!). The seagrass lamps on the skirted tables flanking the sofa add symmetry to the space.
A wicker screen cleverly disguises an unattractive tile fireplace surround (I need this at our home!) and framed botanicals bring the eye up.
Hanna added a door to hide some of the existing built-ins. She needed the storage, but didn’t want to compromise on wall space for her art.
An instagram snippet of a console table filled with pieces from Hanna’s book and antique collections.
I love how she’s arranged the art in this sweet corner.
The handsome dining room walls are painted in Benjamin Moore’s Woodlawn Blue in a flat finish and the trim is Benjamin Moore’s Wedgewood Gray in an eggshell finish. I love the pairing of the antique mahogany table with the white slipcovered dining chairs.
Designer Olivia Brock (another talented Charleston lady I’m proud to call a pal!) helped Hanna design her farmhouse-style kitchen. I love the thick butcher block counter tops they choose.
A close-up on Hanna’s enviable collection dishes, glassware, and flatware.

An antique French table was used as an island in the kitchen.
The library is where the family cozies up to read and watch TV. I love the built-in bookcases and the blue and white Peter Dunham fabric used on the armchair, ottoman, and sofa.
An early instagram glimpse of the interior prior to painting.
A quiet corner punctuated with a fabulous dash of Scalamandre’s Le Tigre velvet (also, love the chair’s Greek key detail).
Eaddy’s room is pretty in pink. The antique bed with its scalloped detail is absolutely precious.
The dreamy master bedroom with its iron canopy bed breezy bed hangings.
Another glimpse of the bed from Hanna’s instagram.
And another with one of her sweet pups!
More of the pups, because who could resist?
Last but not least, on the home’s lovely brick patio, Hanna’s channels the late great Bunny Mellon with her impressive topiary collection. I love her black bistro chairs (they’re available in tons of colors here!).
