Forget those cabins, how about this 70 ft stone tower in the middle of a forest!! OMG this is absolutely incredible. I could live here forever and ever. The end. (Located in Meriwether County, GA, designed by Summerour Architects)
I am sitting here blogging listening to city busses whizzing by, helicopters landing, ambulance sirens (I live across from a hospital) and the kids next door screaming and I need to remind myself why I love city living. Especially when there are beautiful, rustic dwellings like this around where all you hear are the sounds of crickets and birds chirping. I couldn’t decide between these two so you get both.

It sounds wonderful as it rolls off your tongue. “Pond Hollow Lodge.” It looks wonderful too. This is where I’ll be spending this weekend… in my day dreams. Nothing to disturb the rural idyll except the chorus of frogs and the pop of champagne corks. By Reese Owens Architects.
The renovation and extension of this Beverley Hills home included the incorporation of elements from a dismantled 19th century wood barn as well as a new entrance and landscaping. The old beams and siding add warmth to the expansive rooms. I love the marriage of the new build with the old barn wood, the mid century feel of the furnishings working back against the aged timbers and white walls and the beautiful dry climate garden.

This beautifully renovated home located in Ciutadella de Minorca, Spain makes for an ideal spot to spend the hot summers. Bright whites, tile and stained concrete floor, rustic architecture and casual furnishings have me wanting to pack my bags. This no-nonsense, leave-your-flip-flops-on decor is so inviting. *sigh* Via Micasa.
