Birthing Room: Farley Garrison House in Gilmanton, N.H.
As in most all homes of this period, just past the kitchen is a small borning room. While you may not be inclined to use the room for its originally intended purpose, it could be a cozy spot for reading or napping. Originally built in 1665 in Billerica, Mass., this Pilgrim-era saltbox garrison home is believed to be one of the oldest homes in the country. It was dismantled and reconstructed board-by-board in Gilmanton, N.H.
A wall of glass extends to the peaked, cathedral-height ceiling in this expansive Lake Tahoe great room, overlooking a view as picture-perfect as a holiday card. This mountain home is directly on the skyway, allowing residents ski-in, ski-out access. The structure's orientation on its high-elevation lot offers 180-degree views.
A neutral palette is used throughout this Texas ranch home to create a warm, welcoming environment. To create a space that is visually interesting, a mix of natural textures, from the rustic woods to the knubby fabrics, is used.

Rustic lumber is paired with stacked stone to create a stunning home exterior for this Texas ranch house. Covered outdoor living areas blend the indoors and out with comfortable seating areas, an outdoor fireplace and outdoor kitchen.
