Decorating with Color

I debated whether or not to post today. In the light of what’s happening around the world, I feel silly writing about pretty homes and fancy clothes. At some point last year I couldn’t get through the news without bursting into tears, my heart breaking for one bad thing after another so I decided to protect my sanity and stop following current events altogether (these days I rely on Facebook to tell me what I can’t avoid finding out). Writing this blog has been an amazing journey for me, and it has become part of a very fulfilling daily routine. So here I am writing about design, a luxury for so many out there, and trying hard not to feel guilty  about it.

This tiny country house has been on my mind for a long time because in so many ways it is a dream home for me (you might be familiar with it from last year’s House Beautiful-the September issue). It is simple, rustic and cozy, just the way I like it. It is bright and airy, without feeling austere. It has a lot of natural wood, rich finishes and some amazing architectural details, always a must. And most importantly, it satisfies my need of color- every room is filled with vibrant hues and the home feels  happy and youthful, and fun.


{Way too pretty sitting room}

Vermont architect and designer Ramsay Gourd designed this home with a fine blend of classical details and modern design in mind.

Don’t you just love those perfectly imperfect floors?!!



Of all the rooms in this home, the library feels least rustic. Wallpapered ceiling and coats of  high-gloss paint make the space feel polished and sophisticated.



If you’re following my Instagram account, you might have seen me post and repost this bedroom. Words aren’t enough to describe how I feel about this space, I need sounds!! (seriously, I feel giddy just looking at this picture).

Hope you liked this teeny tiny farmhouse. Until next time!
