Yum Yum Modern Farmhouse

I am back at it after a pretty stellar vacation in Vermont. I have red barns on my mind, of course – although this one is from Iowa. What a fantastic mix of old and new care of owners Geoff and Joanna Mouming at Yum Yum farm in Wellman, Iowa. If the photos weren’t enough to get you…how about that name? Ha.

Mclean Quinlan: Stow-On-The-Wold

I spotted this country home by Architects McLean Quinlan on Remodelista. It made me want to scroll through all the project photos from this firm (which I have since done!).

I don’t know what got me first, the exposed wood beams, meticulously maintained exterior, the five Caravaggio pendants. It doesn’t really matter. This place is beautiful from any angle.

Modern Farmhouse in Northern Italy

Ok. I’m back. Those few days off really helped.

If only I could really escape, I think I’d go to Italy and would love to find a modern farmhouse like this one from Dwell.

Wolverhamptom House

I absolutely love how this old family house in Wolverhampton,U.K. remains intact on the outside and is beautifully modernized on the inside.

The glass corridor is quite something. And I love the wood chosen for most of the detail in the house (is it grey oak?? anyone know? This is the look I wanted for my house…went with walnut, but this is lovely).
