Hello! How are you today? I really hope you had a great weekend and had some time to take care of yourself and could re-charge your energy for this brand new week. We had a “cozy winter weekend”, aka: stayed at home and watched the snow falling. The only thing missing was some hot cocoa. How didn’t I think about that? Maybe I’ll leave that for the next weekend.
Today we’ll see a house that has a very appealing simple, yet classic charm. Architects Smith & Vansant recreated this stunning home, but it wasn’t without facing many challenges. They had to renovate the existent building, add a garage and more space for the owners without compromise on the original architectural details and bring them to the new parts of the house. The owner’s priory was to improve the indoor-outdoor flow, use any nook and crannies for storage, create inviting outdoor space where they could spend many hours during summer and also integrate her beautiful collection of antique tiles, lighting, hardware and books.
I look at this house and see that a beautiful space is never created overnight. You need time to find yourself in the beauty of a well created home.
Everything was perfectly selected for this house.
This porch makes me miss summer afternoons. Notice the beautiful light fixtures.
The foyer is also a cozy den. Great if you’re organized. Notice the charming door and windows.
The other side of the entrance. It keeps getting better and better…
The living room feels like a library. Lovely!
This farmhouse kitchen is a dream from top to bottom.
Okay, let’s take a look at this and dream together… Stunning!!!
How do you call it? Perfection, my friends! Perfection!
I also love the floors.
Notice again the beautiful floors. This house has so many built-ins and you guys know how much I love built-ins, right?
This is the house of nooks and books!
I always like seeing framed pictures (black & white). It feels just like home.
Not big but very sweet.
The bath and ladder are the most charming elements here.
The classic blue and white. Or white and blue? You choose!
I really like this space. Can you tell the owner of this house loves books?
This is a dreamy craft room.
The mudroom/laundry room combines beauty and practicality.
These tiles are very unique.
To the Backyard
Let’s the breeze come in…
This house is one of those houses we see and know that was built with so much love and attention to detail.
What a gorgeous backyard.
What a sweet place.
Meet me at Houzz!
I love having my space on Houzz because it gives me the opportunity to pick 20 items that I have spotted and liked. This month I chose some interesting must-haves for a small space. But not any small space. I picked these items thinking outside-the-box. Sometimes you get tired of seeing the same old stuff. So, here you’ll see some really edgy, masculine and industrial elements. Imagine my picks in a New York loft. Leave the boring outside the door!
I hope you guys enjoy it. Please, click on the picture to see the rest of my “ideabook”.
Thank you all for being here today and for keep coming back. I never, ever imagine having so many of you coming to visit me everyday and the number keeps growing and growing. So, if this is your first time here, I hope you feel really welcomed and I hope you come back many more times. And you guys, that are here every single day… Well, I simply wish I could give you a big hug, thanking you for appreciating my work here. I do this for you!
Have a blessed week!
