Isn't this home just beautiful? I'm first drawn in by the traditional elements (like the wall moldings and classic furniture silhouettes) and then my attention is retained by the blissful, earthy color palette. So serene.

The little pops of muted green here and there add a little depth of color and visual interest with out being too jarring. They gracefully and understatedly assert themselves.

But what I love most about this space is that it honors person and place more than anything. You can tell in the way it feels collected, not designed; organic, not contrived. And that, in my eyes, is beautiful.

I love these green or mint elements on the walls :)

I love these shades of green (actually posted on the colour today too!). So nice to see boundaries on colours being pushing - not need to colour inside the lines when there is a full spectrum to choose from.
Thanks for the continued inspiration and great post!

That is exactly what I appreciate and look for most in a space... "collected, not designed; organic, not contrived". I couldn't have said it better myself!!

I am so with you on this house! That first photo of the doors - it's traditional, rustic and modern juxtaposed. It's so up my alley. I love the detailing - the history - in the open door and facing door. Then with the wood paneled rustic closet doors on the right, and the bentwood chairs - you can feel that everything in the home has a story. My fave - the wide plank painted floors.
