The house's main level centers around an open air living and dining room that seamlessly joins with patios and the gorgeous infinity pool. On either side of this space is a bedroom; the master suite perches on the floor above.
This stylish bedroom is kept clean and simple with white walls and curtains; zippy personality comes from pillows in bold colors and patterns. White nightstands are outfitted with sleek blank lamps making the decor pop.
While quilts and blankets are best kept indoors most of the time, bring them out on breezy days or brisk evenings. They definitely inject farmhouse style to a porch, and they are an easy accessory to transport in and out of the house.
As summer is winding down and garden pots are vacated, stack them up and use them as sculptural accessories. They can be strikingly beautiful, even empty. You could tuck a pinecone, mini pumpkin or gourd inside as well.
By removing a wall, what was once a small room feels much larger, offering a comfortable flow between the living room and the dining room. In the process of removing the wall, HGTV Fixer Upper host Chip Gaines found the original fireplace underneath, and decided to keep it as a unique design element. The original shiplap was revealed and kept as wainscoting around the house, and natural wood awnings were installed around the windows.
Purple coneflower, daisies, foxglove, black-eyed Susans, astilbe and hollyhocks fill this garden. "More than half the plants were split from perennials in other areas of my garden," says the homeowner, "and this turned out to be my favorite bed."
