What an absolutely beautiful and relaxing weekend home in the country. I could absolutely move right in. Kevin Dumais and his husband, Charlie, bought and refurbished a three-bedroom clapboard house in rural Connecticut. Major cosmetic renovations included a completely remodeled kitchen and installation of ebony-stained oak floor throughout. The owners made this weekend house their own with mid-century furnishings, fresh white walls, and a range of inviting textures—turning a humble 1940s Cape into a fine example of updated country chic in the process.

Lovely. A real home.
My favorite parts are the yellow exterior doors, the porch and the outdoor space. I would eat at the picnic table as often as the weather permitted.
While the house is really pretty, what I like most about this is the styling of the rooms for the photos. It still looks like the owners just stepped out of the frame to get the picture and then went back to doing what they would normally do on a Saturday morning. Nothing over the top with obvious props (except for the picnic table).
Splendid, all of it.
