Thank you for your uplifting blog and wonderful ideas. You have blessed my lonely life due to the Covid and living alone for the first time ever in 79 years as my husband passed away. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. Love, joy and peace, Nancy B.

I love your cozy round table. The snow was a perfect touch. May I ask what type snow/brand you used? I have been unable to find anything like it.
November 8, 2020 at 9:24 am
Yes, this is the best snow. I’ve tried all kinds and nothing is as pretty as it. Find it here: https://rstyle.me/+XwVXse_rMoI5jqfUGlhftg

Hi Yvonne. I happened on your blog today and started looking at your Fall Home Tour. I really enjoyed seeing all the beautiful touches you added to each room. I have a question: where did you get the window treatments in your sunroom? The fabric is something I would like to have hanging in my front entrance windows. Thanks for the tour. You have a beautiful house and your decorating style is right up my alley.

Please recheck from your end and see if there is a problem.

Hi Sherry, you are fine on my end. It’s probably how you have your email set up. Things like daily newsletters are often flagged and go into your spam or trash. If you find one in your spam or trash folder just add it to your inbox and then they should start coming there. Or better yet, add my email address to your contact list.
Hope you find this helpful.

Hello. I just found your link by searching for washer/clothing issues and ran across home made laundry detergent. Yours was recommended, but when I researched, it was not listed any longer.
Would you please email me your recipe for home made laundry detergent. Would greatly appreciate it.

Hi, Elaine I no longer have that laundry detg.posted. It was a very old post. Sorry if this inconvenienced you.

I just love your decorating style!! Where oh where did you get the black/tiger stripped table?? I absolutely love it!!
September 6, 2020 at 9:16 am
Hi Sue, I found it at HomeGoods. At the time I had no idea what I was going to do with it. So it sat in my basement for a long time and then one day when I was down there I rediscovered it and put it in one of the guest bedrooms.
September 4, 2020 at 11:55 am

Thank you Yvonne for sharing your kitchen renos. So interesting to hear your reasons for the changes that you made. Awesome!
August 10, 2020 at 7:56 am
Hi Tracy, when we were considering moving to StoneGable one of my conditions was the kitchen would need to be made over. Our home is very open and this kitchen can be seen from so many other living spaces. And it did not fit into my style, colors etc. Since we did not build our Tanglewood home we needed to make it ours.
July 24, 2020 at 8:38 am
I love your decorating style! Gorgeous home!
I vote to take the curtains down. I do not think the windows look bare at all.
I love the jute/sisal rug. Wait and put the zebra rug back in the room in the fall.

Hi Sharon, I found them locally and will try to find a source!
July 4, 2020 at 6:42 am
I really need someone’s opinion on whether I should purchase a new sofa, or have our like new 25 year old Pennsylvania House camel back sofa reupholstered. It has been virtually unused in a formal living room for all these years, so it is in perfect condition. I was wondering what your take is on having it done as some of the furniture quality today is not that great. That, plus it seems a shame to simply dispose of it . We still like the style, and will be downsizing and it would become the main sofa in our new living room. I think what is holding me back is wondering how it will turn out after it’s done. Help!
July 6, 2020 at 2:02 pm
Hi Lyn, if you reread your question I think you will find the answer. It sounds like you don’t want to really part with it. If you love it and recovering it won’t cost more than a new sofa (I’ve done that) then recover it. My best advice is to keep it light and neutral!
Our views on furniture have changed. We used to go to the local furniture store and buy very expensive, well-made furniture that would last the rest of our lives… or almost. Now, with the onset of the internet and lots of online sources for furniture that are good quality but not maybe as good as the things we bought years ago, we have options.
We no longer have to keep a piece of furniture for 25 years or more! We can buy something that will last for 10 or 7 or even less.
Here is something I hope all home decorators will remember… SPEND ACCORDING TO THE YEARS YOU ARE WILLING TO LIVE WITH SOMETHING! The longer you need to live with a piece of furniture the more you should spend to get the quality.
Lyn, you hit on a very good point and one I so strongly believe in… LIVE WITH WHAT YOU LOVE!
I know it might be hard to picture what something will look like when it is done, but keep it light and neutral and you will be okay! Hope this helps. Please send me a picture of the sofa you choose!
July 3, 2020 at 2:29 am
Hi, Yvonne. I’ve enjoyed your blog for many years! Did you re-do the kitchen at Tanglewood yet? I couldn’t find a post about it… I got behind in my blog reading and wondered if I missed it?
July 3, 2020 at 8:48 am
Hi Jackie, the makeover begins on July 21st! We had to roll back the start date because of the Covid virus. I’ll be sharing how it looks now and the 3D plans for it in a couple weeks. And I’ll be sharing lots of posts and Instagram stories about the progress.
July 3, 2020 at 11:27 pm
Great! Thanks. We just moved into our house last year, and I had to put a lot on the back burner due to Covid (paint, kitchen, etc.), so I understand! I’m hoping to get the kitchen done soon… I’m still trying to decide on a few things, so looking forward to seeing what you do!

June 25, 2020 at 9:38 am
Hi Marsha. The clock has gone through quite a transformation. I found it on a sale (big sale) at Kohls about 8 years ago. Then I painted it. You can see how I painted it here:https://www.stonegableblog.com/upscaling-and-rescuing-things-you-love/

Hi Susan, I’m thrilled you are enjoying StoneGable. I just was the floors with Young Living Oil’s Thieves. I’ve never had tile floors before and I’m not sure I love them. We have not done anything with the grout yet. I’d like to clean it and then seal it.

Hi, Yvonne…I’m hoping you can tell me the color Gray of your front door. My husband and I purchased a spec house in Loudon, TN was it was partially complete and I’m having a hard time working the white windows in with the color exterior we chose. It’s a Fiberglass front door with wood frame and we’re painting the frame white. This color gray will work well with the partial stone. Any help would be appreciated. Your home is beautiful.
June 12, 2020 at 12:00 pm
Hi Kimberly, I call this door color “Puddy”. It’s not gray but a very interesting bisque with almost a greenish tint.
We are not sure. We moved to our Tanglewood home 8 months ago. The door was already painted. I’m trying to find a source and when I do I’ll make sure to post it.

I’m inquiring on the two round pieces you have above side tables. One.. your large round clock and the two piece round mirror? Can I asked where you found these? Been on the lookout for sometime now. I do remember you painting the clock frame? Not necessarily where you found it.

Hello!! I just discovered your blog on blue and white decor. I love your photos! I have always wanted my home to be decorated in these colors sadly O have a husband who works outdoors (oilfield) and two sons so white, cream, off-white… are never going to happen. But I paint! I was wondering if you took the photos yourself or a professional photographer did. If you did I would love permission to paint from some of them. You can view my work on FB or my website (added below). Thank you!

I really enjoy your website. Your home is just beautiful and I love your design. Recently you posted some blue and white fishbowl planters on your front porch. I am obsessed with these and have been looking all over to purchase some. I find that they are outrageously expensive. Do you have a recommendation for me as to where to purchase these at a reasonable price? They are not very easy to find.
May 19, 2017 at 9:22 am
Darla, Those fishbowl planters can be very pricey. I have a few there that are quite reasonable: http://rstyle.me/~9X9VD, http://rstyle.me/~9X9VU, http://rstyle.me/~9X9WL. Make sure to look at the sizes because they are different. The larger the fishbowl the more expensive.
Another suggestion would be to look in vintage shops. They are much less expensive. Hope this helps.

I don’t know how I originally came across Stonegable, but I love your blog, your style and your podcast!
Wondering if you have any input for those of us who have (some) stained woodwork/furniture in our homes? We have a country home on 5 acres and all of our trim is white EXCEPT for our kitchen and family room. 20 years ago when we purchased and remodeled this house and were installing a custom kitchen, we felt like white cabinets were probably a trend and went with stained Hickory. Clearly, white was not just a trend! Our very nice and quite expensive custom cabinetry is still in excellent condition and there is no plan to change them. The woodwork in that entire area is stained an early American brown, and we have newer granite countertops. I was listening the other day to your podcast #3 about trends. When we did this house, we decided that traditional wood would always be in style while colors would probably come and go. But now 20 years later, here we are! Can you offer any “hope”
or suggestions for me and others like me?
Thanks so much!
March 27, 2017 at 7:30 am
Hi Paula, Stained woodwork is also a classic and has a lovely warm feel. But if you don’t like your stained woodwork you could paint it. That would mean sanding them and then priming and painting… a lot of work. Or you can replace them. I think those are the only options. You might try painting or replacing one room and see how you like it and if it’s worth changing your entire home.
I’d love to know what you decide.
March 17, 2017 at 3:26 pm
I’m very much enjoying your podcast and I wanted to make a comment about your adjustable bed and the problem you are having with your bottom sheet untucking. My mother bought a similar bed st Sleep Train, and at the time she also purchased 2 sets of sheets specifically designed for the adjustable bed. they were quite expensive but they were perfect! The bottom sheet was fitted but also had elastic straps that kept the sheet in place. ( I’m using past tense because my mother has since passed away and I donated her wonderful bed and sheets to another person who needed the adjustable bed). I think if you invested in a set of these sheets your problem would be solved!

Thanks for any advice.
December 31, 2016 at 2:16 pm
Hi Jennifer, I don’t feel I have researched rug pads to be able to give you the best advice. I would probably call a rug dealer and talk to them. I hope this helps. Happy New Year from StoneGable!

P.S. Quick design question:
What do you think about floor lamps in a living room? Yay or nay? I have mixed feelings about mine, they don’t really seem classic, I guess. It is a newer Roth + Allen floor lamp from Lowes. But I think it may be outdated already.
Thank you for your time.

As with any move, I am finding some decor no longer working and sensing a shift in my design style. Do you offer any design consultations? Your look is so classic, yet fresh and casually elegant. All your rooms look pulled together so well. Maybe a post on the essentials of a well put together room?
Keep up the great work. I admire you, your style and your lovely Stonegable.

I wonder where the hen lamp came from in the dining room in the Christmas post I just love it!!!! Thanks kathy
November 22, 2016 at 8:49 am
That hen lamp has stood the test of time. I probably have had it 20 years or so!It came from a little boutique shop in Vienna Va. I’m sorry I can’t point you to a source to find it.
Hope you have a very happy Thanksgiving!

First and upmost, I love your blog, newsletter and decorating ideas and tips that you give us from your very own personal collection, it has given me the repurpose eye even more for my own items before I invest in more. I am getting ready to distress my black urns for Fall and will send you a pic when complete if you’d like?! We are growing pumpkins this year for the first time and already having great success. My husband is so excited! I already have my Fall plan!
Now a question I have, where is a good place to find the items to make your vingettes on your tables, counters etc. I group my fav things together without on coffee table, breakfast island without it, would like one for Fall!
We have so many herbs, my husband brings me bouquets, or whatever there is an obundance of to use as a floral bouquet with my vignettes in Kitch. Green and fragrant! I am also getting ready to do your herb freezer cubes, thank you! You must of known I needed that! Thank you so much again! Love to you and family!
July 23, 2016 at 8:52 am
Jacqueline, I love that you are already thinking about fall and planning. As far as finding things for a vignette I usually “shop my house”. We all have books, so start there. Use them as risers. Did you see my post on covering books with burlap? Those covered books make a fabulous item for vignettes. You can see the post here: http://www.stonegableblog.com/how-to-cover-a-book-with-burlap/. I’ll be making a decorative orb in August. Look for the post. These orbs are such nice additions to a vignette. Thanks for being part of the StoneGable family!!!!
July 9, 2016 at 8:04 am
I love the color you chose for your walls. They look quite sunny and cheerful. What colors did you use? I’m remodeling my home and I can’t find the right color to use to get the same affect. I chose a neutral but I think its just too dark. Lovely home.

I love your blue front door. I hope you will share with me and others the brand and paint color you used. Thank you.
May 31, 2016 at 8:47 am
The front door color was a serendipitous mistake. We thought we were getting gray, but when we got home the paint was blue. I have no idea what the paint store mixed. The door must be repainted this summer and we will try to match it. Stop by sometime this summer and I’ll be doing a post about the new and hopefully closely matched door color.

My front door has an interesting story, Tina! It was supposed to be a slate gray, but I guess the color got mixed up and when we started painting it, it turned out this blue/gray. Serendipity! We love it. But I can’t tell you a color, sorry!

I love the mini Indian corn wreath so much, I made four of them: 1 for myself, two as gifts, and someone asked me to make a fall wreath, so I sold one!).
However, it took weeks and a little frustration to find the mini corn. I never did find grade A. The B (maybe) was alright and the price was great, but I want to sell some next year, and I might hold a “class”, so I’ll need nice corn. Would you share your contact information for the Amish farm?
Thanks for sharing your idea. Oh, and you wouldn’t believe my shock when I noticed the medallion on your black front door–same exact medallion I have in MY black front door!! What a hoot! Thanks, again.

It is located on 37 acres with a 1920’s Farm house. It is an amazing house with all the great architecture & would love for you to check out my website and see the photos and weddings we have had there. It was vacant for 7 years when we bought it a year ago July 2014. We knew it was special and wanted to share it with others! True Farm houses are few and far between!
