Other People’s Homes

3 Dec

This home isn’t from a reader, it’s from the stylish blog Design Milk. I couldn’t resist sharing it though because it’s pretty much ten tons of gorgeousness. It inspires me because it is set in a very similar environment to our house. The original color of our house was also a stained dark brown that has now been painted over with tan. My goal is to eventually re-paint it back to the brown, though it has lost that wonderful texture of stained wood siding.

I have had an allergy to using stones that weren’t geometrical for things like retaining walls, but in this context it works and I will be reconsidering that choice for sure. Especially pay attention to the stone garage.  Mid-century lines but organic stone materials. Wow. Talk about staying true to mid-century modern values.

I was less fond of the interior because I can’t imagine raising a big brood of kids there. I am finally settling into my preference of warm woody colorful interiors while some of these rooms qualify, on the whole it feels a little cold to me.  I do love the furniture though. Pitch-perfect choices for a house like this. What do you think?

    Inspirational and well done. I too really like the stone element, it adds a wonderful contrast of textures, wood, glass and stone. The setting is spectacular.

      I thought so too. It’s a perfect example of what I hope to achieve with our house.
