This lovely farmhouse is actually a vacation rental in upstate New York. The rustic simplicity creates such a serene atmosphere. A perfect place to get away from it all.

This gorgeous kitchen remodel is the work of interior designer Lauren Leiss. I am completely in love with the whole thing. On her website she describes her style in a few words: simplicity, comfort, nature, ease, relaxed luxury. I think she has summed it up perfectly.

Happy April Fools Day.

friday favorites.

The mini stories/look books over at & Other Stories. This one is my favorite. It is called "A Parisian Short Story."

This series on Stephmodo featuring real life homes. No designers- just regular people making their house a home.

This interview with Olivia Rae James over on Tara Hurst's blog. Her thoughts on comparison really resonated with me. "I have to remind myself that it's my own life and personal journey that counts (in the words of my mom)."

Happy Friday. I'm off to Asheville today for a girls weekend. Hooray!

This natural beauty of a home was featured on Domino. I just can't get over how stunning it is. The natural light pouring in from the windows makes it all the prettier.
