Barn Beauty

January 21, 2011

A Happy Home Tour Friday y’all!

Today, were headed out to 1,600 acres of oak-covered land in California’s Santa Ynez Valley.  This barn-styled home is easy on the eyes – I can just imagine living there!

So without further adieu…

Isn’t she gorgeous?

Someday I soo need these barstools in my home.  They are antique tractor seats, fyi.

The color palette was inspired by the surrounding land: warm off-whites, various browns and sage greens, paired with subdued red accents, such as kitchen cabinets whose crimson paint is mellowed with an earth-toned glaze.  The coffee table is an antique Indian cart.

I just love this room!

Oh that view!  Floors and cabinets are built from reclaimed tobacco-barn oak to give the appropriate rustic feel.

Sliding closet doors mirror the look of the home’s exterior barn doors.  That’s a reclaimed wrought-iron gate for the headboard.  In addition to the warm color palette and gorgeous furnishings, t’s the beamed, vaulted ceiling and that make this room spectacular for me.

Here, neutral-colored tiles set off the warm tones of reclaimed wood, while complementing an array of unique mirrors and light fixtures.  Splendid.

I love the white bedding, it feels so pure and western.

Again, these cabinets are masterful, without being too much.

I had to save the bunk room for last.  Perfect!

Many thanks to Jessica Helgerson, of Jessica Helgerson Interior Design in Portland, Oregon, for this amazing home tour!
