Contemporary Barn

Close your eyes. That's right. Close your eyes. Imagine a barn, a big, grey barn with huge doors that silde open to reveal views of lush green woods. Imagine the space divided into rooms intimate or vast. Now furnish those rooms with simple pieces, simple, beautiful, tactile things. Think of aged timbers and white wash, stone and linens, old but new. Open your eyes. Did your dream barn look like this one? Mine did. Contemporary Barn by  D. Stanley Dixon Architect.

Magic egg guesthouse

And just when you think it can't get any better...the magic egg farmhouse has a GUESTHOUSE!!! 

A little spot just over a little hill from the Magic Egg farmhouse. The guest house was filled with spiders and piles (and piles) of books when we got there, but it was easy to see the promise of this space. We let the original floors and wood beams steer the style, and kept things simple and light. Textured linens, white plaster, brass accents, some hanging sage from the garden, and of course, some built in bunk beds. It’s the perfect sized weekend getaway. Jersey Ice Cream Co. does it again.

Magic egg farmhouse

If you asked me what type of home I would want to live in for the rest of my life if I had to choose one, this is my answer. This home and everything in it. A late-18th-century farmhouse tucked away in 167 acres of fields and forest, complete with a barn, pool, pond, and tennis court. Over its many years the house has seen plenty of renovations and, we can only imagine, has lived just as many lives. Its most recent iteration featured a rainbow’s array of wall colors and strange furniture choices. It was immediately clear that all that needed to go, and that we’d basically need to start from scratch, while keeping just a few old details like the wide-plank floors and rich chestnut paneling. Such a relaxing, serene environment filled with all the wonderful textures and neutral tones you would expect in your dream farmhouse. By Jersey Ice Cream Co. (Previous feature here)

A mountain cabin in Northern Italy

My mother is from Northern Italy and it is at the top of my travel wish list to visit (I was there once, too long ago to remember). When the opportunity does arise, I want to stay RIGHT HERE. This mountain cabin by architect Alfredo Vanotti is one of the most incredible homes I have ever seen - inside and out. A mix of concrete and wood surrounded in stone, with a magnificent view of the Italian Alps....I die. (Photos: Marcello Mariana)

And to my fellow Canadians, HAPPY CANADA DAY!
