Inspiration | California Farmhouse with East Coast Architecture

I can't even remember the last time I posted a home from a shelter magazine versus just pinning images, but this one, from the April issue of Country Living, was so charming, I couldn't help myself.  It was styled by Heather Bullard, so of course it is going to be blog-able, pin-able, and lovable.  The whole house is pretty, but the images I have here are my favorites.  I love the mass of potted white flowering plants on the steps.  It is my inspiration for our back patio this summer.  

^ Shades of apricot and off white are warm yet fresh at the same time.  And that sofa!  I'm off to look up more details after I publish this post. The brand is National Upholstery.  The ottoman is Lee Industries ^

^ The built-ins and millwork here are perfect.  Pure inspiration for my one day dream home.  I wish the lantern had not been cropped out of the image b/c it looks pretty amazing! ^

  1. Gorgeous dining room. The black chair is super cute.

  2. Thanks for sharing, Tessa. I hadn't seen this feature - so incredibly beautiful!!

  3. It's just lovely. The team at CL is really doing something right lately and have picked beautiful-but-comfortable homes to share with their readers. Kudos to them!

  4. i think you're totally right--it's all about the millwork! what a dream to live in a home with such incredible details. my only concern is the jute rug--i have what i think is the same rug, and it requires an enormous amount of maintenance. BUT i could probably live with it if i had that soaking tub :)
