Blogger Home Tour - Southern Hospitality

Welcome to the Blogger Home Tour series.
Featuring some of the finest homes on tour in Blogland.


A warm welcome to Rhoda from Southern Hospitality.
I adore her blog with awesome DIY tutorial,  beautiful vintage finds, stunning decor along with some amazing home renovations.

When I first started blogging December 2010, her blog was one of the many that I was enjoying.
Her home in Birmingham was beautifully styled and I was reading along as her posts came in.

 However, the winds of change blew and she found herself uprooted and moved to Georgia.
Fast forward a year later, and with the grace of God, she has a brand new project, brand new life.
A  major 1970's home renovation project.  A major make-over. 
Each room completely transformed, top to bottom.
Follow along with all the amazing renovations here.

The before and after work is just so amazing.
She and her Dad make a great construction team and have worked hard at this goal.

As the renovations start to come together,  the decorating begins.
You can see how much love she puts into each room.
One words says it all - classy.

Brand new Ikea kitchen.

Rhoda gives you a step by step instructions on how to install subway tile backsplash.
You can find it here

Just check out this meticulous upgrade to the the master bedroom.
And using her exact words, everyone needs a bedroom that envelopes and calms.  A place of peace and rest.
I would say she achieved that.  Love this room.
I may have to try my hand at her how to stencil drapes tutorial.

Everyone needs a place at the end of the day to unwind, watch a little TV, curl up and read a good book.
I think this cozy den will suffice.

Very cool gallery wall.

A savvy bargain hunter, you will find a lot of DIY projects and tutorial on this blog.

Have a look at the dining room.  My absolute favourite room.

Just stunning.

Love, love the board and batten wall treatment.
One of the first rooms to be worked on was the dining room.
If you are looking for instructions on how to, she provides a step by step tutorial here.

Head on over to her blog,  Southern Hospitality and take a detailed tour.  There is loads to see!
You will also find her magazine worthy home in the May 2013 edition of  Atlanta Magazine and an upcoming edition of Better Homes & Garden.....congrats Rhoda!

  1. What a gorgeous home tour! Her home is beautiful! Rhoda's blog has been one of my favorites for a long time now. Love your new series, Diane!

  2. THank you so much, Diane, for the tour, I'm so honored that you featured my new home. It sure was a lot of work, but I'm so happy to be here now.

  3. Rhoda's current and past homes have been my favorites for years. Love the girl's style and spirit!

  4. Thanks for sharing this beautiful home. Rhoda has done an amazing job at decorating it. Beautiful!

  5. Rhoda seems so sweet; her big bloggerness does not seem to have gotten to her.

    Her story resonates with a lot of people these days. In the U.S. many have had to start over in the middle of their lives; burned by the economy. They were successful, but go-getters,so they cleaned their skinned knees.

    It speaks to faith and resilience when we are bombarded with victims.

  6. Great home, I'm so glad you posted it as I'm going to visit Rhoda now! Thank you for sharing and for visiting made my day sweet friend. Hugs,

  7. I just found your blog through French Country Cottage! I am your newest follower. I Love Rhonda at Southern Hospitality. This is a wonderful house tour, so much to take in. Stop by my blog sometime,
