in love

there is a beautiful 1897 stone barn we pass on our evening walks that we have fallen in love with {so much so that we had our family pictures taken there}.  it's not much to look at but it sure is pretty in my head. it's been sitting empty for a long time and i feel sorry for it. it needs some love and attention. everytime we pass the barn, without fail, husband and i begin telling each other what we'd do to it if it was ours. i can see it with whitewashed walls, exposed beams and stone throughout all while being light and airy.

i love this Texan home featured in house beautiful. light, airy, and neutral with great architechual features.

if you're a fan of Ina Garten's, you've most likely seen her barn on the Barefoot Contessa. i love that kitchen.

 and then there is the french stone cottage, la maisonette, that Stephanie and her family have been renovating over the past couple of months. oh my, it's perfect. what i wouldn't give to have a little french stone cottage.

Do you have a house or building that has caught your eye?

I loved that barn, too! I still can't believe I didn't know it was there until you mentioned it. So beautiful. Too bad it isn't for sale, you would do great things with it!

I love that third picture...the one of the dining room. I love those chairs!

Your pictures with the barn looked so great! I agree, you'd make it BEAUTIFUL! I really like the old rocks and windows . . . and doors. I wonder who owns it now?
