When interior designer Brian Watford was contacted by the owners of this craftsman-style home he knew this would be a fantastic opportunity to really let his designs speak for themselves. He added pieces that have a mid-century feel and others that are completely timeless, creating a space that feels chic yet livable for all members of this young family.
This is the kind of house you get in and want to look into every detail because there’s something to learn and admire in every corner.
It’s impossible to not love this foyer! I really like the green velvet ottomans. They look perfect with the dark floors.
The dining room feels really warm. I like the textures found here and I especially like the silk chinoiserie wall covering.
A very unique and stunning chandelier of citrine gemstones cascading through the center of a silk drum shade.
This is such a beautiful room with such elegance. Beautiful furniture was chosen for this space, including that vintage daybed.
Let’s Play & Talk
I usually don’t like “game tables” but I can have this one in my place any time!
Where We Eat
I love breakfast areas that feel sunny like this one. I also like the rug, but I’ll be honest here, I simply cannot have one under my table, not with two small children and a baby on the way!
Even though I love this entire house, this is the space that speaks most to me. I really like the soft blues and the French doors. The walls are covered in a chevron-patterned grasscloth.
This master bedroom is really big, the sitting area can be seem at the top of this post (1st picture). The designer upholstered the walls in charcoal gray wool and added some white, gray and turquoise to the space. Talking about turquoise, have you notice how gorgeous the “X-legged” bench by the bed is?
What are your thoughts on this house? Did you like how chic every room feels? Let me know. I can’t wait to know if you liked it.
How are you guys doing today? Everything is good with you? I’m feeling overwhelmed today. You know, I always try to be positive about everything in my life and complain as little as possible. That’s something I’m still learning to do, but I was even telling my kids today that it seems there’s much more things to be done around me than I have time to accomplish them. Do you feel the same way? I think most of us do feel this way. The problem is, the list never ends and it keeps growing. I’m the kind of person that tries to keep life as simple as possible and “put less on my plate” when I know I already have too much, but life is life and things keep happening and we need to at least try to accommodate new changes.
So, if you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed like I am today, I hope coming here was a little break that you deserved and could forget about the things you have to do.
Have a lovely day and hopefully one with a small “to do” list! 🙂

Wow very tastefully done. Living room is my favorite room hands down and I also love that gaming table!! Yes, Luciane I am also feeling VERY overwhelmed, probably why I woke up at 4:23 am!!!!!!!! Oh boy…its going to be a looong day, I always say 24 hours is just enough hours in the day anymore, life is crazy, its too busy isn’t it? But we must pace ourselves and I always tell myself if this or that doesnt’ get done or I am late a few minutes, the world will not stop. I try more and more to put things in perspective and be realistic and not put so much pressure on myself, its just too much and I am not going to put myself under that kind of pressure anymore….join me!!
Heres to us both having a good less stressful day!!
Love all the dark wod floors and the crisp blue and white throughout, really beautiful. A place I would be happy to move into.
I know your getting close to delivering and hope you’re feeling well.
Now this house is really right up my alley!! One of my favorites you’ve posted, and at nine months pregnant no less. You astound me!! Now go take a looooong nap!
Beautiful home, although a bit too chic for me to live in 🙂 Love the living room and foyer!
I usually start to feel stressed in the middle of the night. I think about everything I have to do and get anxious. Things always seem less overwhelming in the morning when I can start crossing things off my list.
Hope you are feeling a bit more relaxed. Everything will work out as it should. Try to let the stress go, and know that your health and your baby are the most important things on “the list.” 🙂
Luciane, I know how you feel! Life can get overwhelming and having young kids isn’t always easy. There are always surprises. I miss those days. Mine are all grown now and I wish I would of been able to stop time just a little bit. Miss, miss those days!
It’s very luxe. The staircase really catches my eye! Lovely.
loving the french grey-brown on the walls. very chic indeed. my energy is low, but things are pretty dang good over here. can you believe a new life is about to be ushered into this world and will breathe the air of earth very very soon????? and all because of love.
be well and feel the peace that is just beneath the surface waiting for you to embrace it. feel it? sometimes thinking the words LET IT GO will help to release peace. sometimes chocolate does the trick.
i’ll be sending over a post very soon! love to you, mama.
I need to keep up with this designer! Beautiful clean lines without sacrificing the traditional style.
I’m with you on the game table, Luciane. LOVE. And the dining room is amazing.
Hope all is well with you. Let is hear when the little one arrives.
I feel overwhelmed about every day…This post made me happy though..he is a great talent. I love his clean style.
Hugs to you my friend!
Hugs to you Luciane… I’m with Stacy and voting for you to take a long nap!
My favorite space was the foyer. I absolutely love the contrast of the white and dark, and the way the stairs are featured is incredible.
Dear Luciane, how are you able to always pick rooms I definitely could move right into! I love all of these and I think they all have a little of my style 🙂 I’ll be taking a little blog break until 10th of December. I have thousand of preparations for Christmas to do and I really have to get started! Hope you have a beautiful week and see you in December!
Lots of hugs, Kristin
Visiting your posts are always a highlight of my day, not only for the design feast, but also for your wonderful energy that you share.
You are no doubt feeling that anxious feeling that always came for me just before the arrival of a baby; that feeling like you have to make the world perfect for it! Just know that all is well, and follow the K.I.S.S. method…(keep it simple sweetie…)
Like another reader posted, these days that seem so hectic and unpredictable with young kids…they pass so fast. Just the idea of kissing cold cheeks and freshly bathed toes….count it all joy. I miss the “messy” days deeply.
Big deep breath, in AND out…and be well. xo
*** I just fell in love, and I’m a HAPPILY MARRIED WOMAN!!!!!!!!
Brian’ Watford’s talent for beautifully edited, sublimely perfect choices of soothing, subtle colors and textures puts me so at ease…. In short, I truly love this place some uber-lucky family calls “home”!
Thanks, Luciane, for sharing it with us, ESPECIALLY considering what’s going on in your beautifully blessed life right now!
Warmest to you,
Linda in AZ *
I agree on the long nap – consider it an investment in your new baby! 🙂 This house is really sophisticated – love it!
Luciane, I love virtually everything about this house; the light from French doors, the color story, the furniture choices, the logical design flow from room to room. It shows what can happen if you hire a really talented designer with whom you can relate.
This one is a keeper for my inspiration file. Hope you are doing well.
Luciane, this house is perfection…wow what a designer, every last detail is beyond wow….I am a french country gal with a bit of tradition mixed in so this isn’t even my real comfort zone, you know all very perfect, but I have to say right down to every single detail ..(die for those rugs) I adore this home..Bravo on your talent for finding these gems…hey you are going through your nesting stage…I washed 3 cars the day before I delivered, had to clean everything, who knows you might be early this time?
The sleek hip pad is definitely what’s happening! This is a good one!
I’m reading this late — hope you are feeling more peaceful. Totally understandable to be anxious just before the baby. Don’t forget to take deep breaths 😉
Oh yeah, great house!
