Eclectic Home Tour – Far Above Rubies
Anita of Far Above Rubies lives in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina on land that’s been in her family for generations.
This is the latest addition in my Eclectic Home Tour series where I feature the most amazing homes in every style from farmhouse to mid-century modern and everything in between.
Now let’s get back to the tour and a welcoming front porch that includes an old sign that hung on Anita’s great grandfathers house that once sat on the property.
An over dyed rug is a fun addition … and so is that table with horseshoe base!
Anita recently moved the pink rug into the dining room – I love the brightness under the dark wood furniture.
Anita replaced laminate countertops with 150 antique wormy chestnut that came from her great grandmothers little guest house.
I love the way she wrapped it around the front of the sink and a wire makes a simple towel holder.
An old screen door hides the pantry.
Anita is a musician and has not only sang at the White House but has backed up many singers including Vince Gill.
What a fun, fresh, colorful home! Make sure to visit Far Above Rubies …
she’s known for her amazing tablescapes!
Can’t get enough of peeking into other people’s houses?

I agree Megan!
You have so many beautiful pieces in your home. I love the way you were able to mix and match, without over powering the space. I also love how you took something old and simple, I.e. the door, and made it work in the space, as well as made it a useful piece. Good job, and very creative. Thanks fr sharing.

First of all love country music. Second of all thank you for inviting me into your home. There’s not one thing I can’t say that I don’t like. Everything is so homey and relaxing. There was a few old pieces I saw that remind ed me when I gas growing up like the radio in the kitchen. The door to the pantry. Believe or not my parents had the same couches that were I think it was your living room.I just fell in love with the porch not the front I guess the bsck or side. Love to have that. I could ramble on about your beautiful home. From one southerner to another thank you truly enjoyed it.
