Recently I purchased a copy of the magazine House Beautiful because I did not have the power to resist the images of this gorgeous Houston home. I enjoy and appreciate many various decorating styles, but without a doubt, this is the one that is the most me.
Just look at this beautiful entry. All of the wood and stone in this house in reclaimed. This is a brand new house made of antique materials. I think I would change out the doors for something similar but with windows.
It's like being in a castle. I like the play of light from the window here.
I'm pretty sure I could be a better cook in this kitchen. My favorite part? The fridge covered in zinc. I love how rustic it is.
And after cooking a fantastic meal in the kitchen, we could retire to this fabulous dining room. I've already posted about my love affair with this clay color. I think the chairs are a bit ornate for my taste. I would replace the dining set with something more casual, a farm table perhaps.
After dinner, I would curl up next to the fire with a good book. My favorite thing in this image? Those double doors in the background.
Who doesn't want a gorgeous grand staircase like this?
And those shutters make me swoon.
I love love love the shutters here. The chandelier and chair are just the right touch in this space.
And my very favorite image:
Seriously, I love everything about this so much it makes my heart ache. I kid you not.
