Interior Design Ideas Photo Gallery: Traditional Home with Classic Decor and Design by Phoebe Howard

This is a MUST SEE gallery of inspiration…a classic home built of limestone and adorned with the palest blue shutters has traditional, timeless, and tranquil written all over it! Surely, interior designer Phoebe Howard has a poet’s heart considering how beautifully the hushed interiors whisper. Inside, you’ll spy pale blues, light greys, honey golds, and glorious creamy white billowing throughout the interiors–serenely classic colors that sweetly purr Hello, Lovely and call my name!

Should you be curious about Mrs. Howard’s favorite paint colors – she includes a helpful palette with names in this her book:

The Joy of Decorating – Phoebe Howard

Get ready to weep though…you will not find a source listed here for the stone in this house since it is reclaimed from an abandoned Kentucky distillery. Oui! The light palette indoors is derived from the tones in this gorgeous old limestone which explains how the design feels harmonious, integrally informed, and pleasing (that, and, oh, yes, world class architects, craftsmen and designers at the helm). Most of these breathtaking images appeared in the July/Aug 2014 issue of Traditional Home.

Interior Design Ideas Photo Gallery: Living Room

So much softness, and the stone exterior can even be enjoyed inside this peaceful living room! Delicate scallops in the coffee table’s design recall ocean waves.

Interior design inspiration from Phoebe Howard. The living room’s soaring ceiling is brought down to a more intimate scale with a chandelier from Ainsworth-Noah. A tufted chair covered in a subtle fabric from Kravet and a club chair in a TylerGraphic print add bits of misty blue to the neutral tones. #livingroom #traditional #interiordesign #classic #whitedecor

For a less imposing architectural gesture, there are two matching stairways at opposite ends of the entry. I love all the play with geometry here – the curves of the archways and steps with the straight lines of the wall sconces and panels.

    I had to remind myself to breathe, it’s just glorious! Too much to mention (must give a big shout out to the sheers in the beautiful bathroom though) What must it feel like to wake in a home like that? Heaven

    What color is on the fireplace? Is it painted or does it have a wash on it. It is beautiful!

      The only description I found in the article in Traditional Home was “porridgy cream.” If you really want to know Phoebe Howard’s favorite colors, I just updated the post with a link to her book which comes with a full palette of her favorite colors to use for walls, ceilings, and trim. It may be worth the cost of the whole book! Here’s the book: https://amzn.to/2jPAU7p. Hope this helps
