A Rural Connecticut Farmhouse

Monday, March 9, 2015

Hey guys!  I thought we would kick off this new week with a pretty farmhouse tour featured in Country Living.  What I love about this house is the neutral base (duh) that is layered in textures and collected pieces that add warmth and interest.  Chic yet really comfortable and livable.  Take a look.

I love everything about this entryway!  The grass cloth, the topiaries, loads of texture, and collected pieces that tell a story.

You know me and my love of the fiddle leaf fig.  (See this post and this update.)  That wicker day bed is pretty special too!

This makes me want to add to my wooden cutting board collection.

The banquet and green glass are what I love here.  Also, note that the shelves are natural wood which makes perfect sense because there is so much white already.  Balance is a good thing.

The paneled walls add a nice bit of interest here.  And the brass andirons are a bit unexpected and really lovely!

Any time you have a collection, display it together.  This has a greater impact than lots of similar items scattered throughout the house.

That stripe runner is perfect here!

This is my favorite room in the house and quite possibly my new favorite bedroom!  Notice that this is not a bedroom set and the woods don't "match", and isn't it beautiful!?


  1. Hi Rene, beautiful home! The bedroom is my favorite too! In fact, it completely reminds me of this bedroom: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/142004194476990755/ which is my SILs inspiration for her bedroom that I am helping her with….. I'm wondering if it is the same room, but just with different fabrics, paint, etc.

    1. Fran, there are so many similarities that has to be the same room. Pinned it!

  2. so pretty! i especially love the kitchen nook with its pillows and the pretty collection of glass.

  3. This is such a gorgeous home! I love all of the fiddle leaf fig trees too!

  4. Oh, the bedroom is especially beautiful. It has a very Swedish country look with the gingham and secretary, don't you think?

    Thanks for sharing, Rene!

  5. OMG....I had not seen this and I am officially in love! Gah................thanks for sharing Rene!

  6. This whole house is perfection.
