Sometimes we just know which house is the right one for us and for this young family, that had just moved from California to New England, this house was the perfect one to raise their small children in. The homeowner drove by the house and couldn’t help but fall in love with its architecture and its roof lines and shingles.
The architecture of this New England home certainly grabs your attention, but the interior proves to be cohesive with its exterior. Interior designer Jan Hiltz used her great expertise to design every room of this house. She combineb summery colors with light grays and the result is a design suitable for a young family with distinct taste.
The living room is one of my favorite rooms of this house. Coffee table is by Oly and geometric-patterned drapes are by Victoria Hagan, ceiling is covered in a gold grasscloth.
Summery hues bring some happiness year-round to the space.
The designer beautifully mixed yellow, white, navy and turquoise. Art by Kerri Rosenthal.
We don’t have to compromise on style when we have small children. Jan used indoor-outdoor fabric on the bench and faux crocodile on the chair seats. Table is from Bungalow 5, one of my favorite stores.
The stools add some texture and color to this elegant kitchen.
The master bedroom exudes elegance. The custom headboard is made of white velvet and the lamps are by Festoni.
I really like the shape of this custom vanity and the gorgeous marble finishing in this bathroom, including the floors.
Art & Color
The wood-framed antique chair is covered in Aqua Trellis fabric by S. Harris and the art brings some color to the bathroom.
Love this: Hiltz added punch to a boy’s room by rimming one wall in nail-head trim. Isn’t it brilliant?
I can’t wait to hear what you think of this place! I think it’s filled with fun and beautiful colors and it feels so welcoming. Did you like it?
Talking about liking, did you like your weekend? We had a great time and I loved spending such a wonderful Mothers Day with my kids. This was my first Mothers Day with Matthew (my 3rd child_ the little one of the house_ only 5 months) and it was perfect. My husband and I used to buy things for each other when the kids were too small to understand the meaning of this date, but now, that my older kids are well, older, we let them do what’s in their hearts. This year I got some beautiful gifts they prepared at school and I’ve been receiving little notes and homemade cards all week long.
I remember when I was a kid and used to write letters to my mother. I wonder if she misses them. Maybe it’s time for me to let go of the keyboard and grab a pen, a piece of paper and some tissues.
Have a wonderful week and make sure to speak what’s in your heart. It can be liberating.
