I’m back, house hunting in the Berkshires on realtor.com.
This house is so plain Jane, but it couldn’t appeal to me more!
I do love a white house, yes,
but it’s the details of this one that drew me in,
especially this modern trellis hung over a wall of windows:
Love it! Look at the wire cables! How “NOW”!
A standing seam metal roof outside has to mean more awesomeness inside.
Let’s check it out to see if my theory is true
re: the exterior + interiors being equally groovy.
There’s that beautiful wall of windows we saw earlier:
My gosh. What a beautiful space.
I would never leave!
While all-white’s not for me, it really works great in this house, don’t you think?
In the kitchen + dining area, they’ve exposed the original, rustic rafters + beams.
The texture they add, even after being painted white,
keeps things from being too sterile . . .
. . . as do the natural wood dining table + brown leather chairs . . .
. . . + all those books!
I love the black floors + black cabinet handles + light fixture hardware.
Okay. Now we’re headed to sterile town (below), but still.
I’m a huge fan of the small exposed rafter, that day bed + the rolling table.
If it was my house, I’d add a colorful rug + artwork,
some pillows + window treatments.
I am digging more nautical-style wire cables on the exterior staircase,
+ the deck is well-designed + very beautiful.
But wait. Here’s a question.
Why am I drawn to such minimalist houses
when ours is anything but?
This might prompt me to ask myself “is less more?” once again.
