We didn’t know that boat house envy was even a thing until we saw this image. The walls of windows give allow for a perfect view of the water from inside, while the open balcony offers a great space to sit outside and enjoy the view.

Just because mudrooms are practical doesn’t mean they have to be boring. With natural light and detailed hardware, this space is a great example of that. You may just be passing through, but this mudroom is sure to leave quite the impression.

There’s no better way to make a first impression than with a dramatic entrance like this. The simple white coloring draws attention to the sconces and to the fantastic wood door. Touches of green plant life surround the area and complete this entrance in the most natural way.

This gorgeous white living room is completed with the perfect mix of blue and natural accents. Indigo was a popular color in 2017, and after seeing in this room we get why! The wood beams also add both drama and warmth to the space, while complementing the greenery well.

With a view like this, a window seat is a must! The details of this space – from the wall panelling to the patterned throws – make it the perfect area to relax or cuddle up with a good book.

A dutch door is always a good idea, especially when it looks this good! This door adds a farm-style touch to the home and is painted in a shade that pairs perfectly with the exterior of the house. If this is just the view from outside, we can only imagine how great the rest of the home looks.

This home is a great example of how well two different exterior surfaces can play off of each other. Both the textures and color combine to create a classic, yet unique look. Steel doors are a great accent against the stone, making them really pop. Not to mention, the vibrant landscaping acts as the perfect finishing touch for this gorgeous home.

Every detail in this kitchen is simple, yet so well thought out. From the white subway tile with contrasting grout to the farm-style sink, we love it all. Plus, lots of windows add natural light that is sure to keep the space bright and airy.

While white cabinets are relatively common, the ones in this kitchen are anything but. The unique door design adds a surprising touch to otherwise simple cabinetry. Brass hardware and a marble backsplash are the perfect details to finish up this space.

We think there’s something so wonderful about a white brick home, and since it was our most popular post of 2017, it seems like we’re not alone. Everything about this exterior – the brick walkway, the open porch, the perfect peaks – screams “welcome home.”
