When it comes to decorating her home, Chris Shands knows classic design with a modern twist. Chris and her husband Tyler live in Richmond Virginia and they have three beautiful daughters. An artist herself, Chris has skillfully and successfully created a chic and stylish home with a comfortable and relaxed feel. From the moment you step into the gorgeous foyer {with the pearl chandelier}, your eyes can’t take a break from looking at all of the amazing pieces she has collected.

Chris states, “I like to mix it up. I place sentimental items next to modern home decor. It gives the vignette a unique quality and adds meaning to the room.” The neutral colored living room is so delightful and comes to life with pops of pink and green and the fabulous zebra rug!

The family room is bright and cheerful with a periwinkle blue and lime green color palette. Chris has a keen eye for art and color, and it is present in each and every room of their home. I could sit in this room all day long! I love how Chris creates the most beautiful vignettes for every space.

Her elegant dining room is filled with more beautiful artwork against the saturated green wall backdrop. I love the plates arching around the beautiful portrait of one of their daughters. The mirror with an antiqued finish and the chandelier both reflect the light around the luxurious room.

And we are not done yet. Wait until you see the beautiful backyard gardens complete with cascading roses and a lily pad pond with goldfish!
