In my searchings for country house inspiration, I have found it’s difficult to find places that achieve “country” without relying on kitschy. Unsurprisingly, Rita Konig got it exactly right on her Mill Valley project in Elle Decor a few months ago…
It’s more english-country than Texas-country but it’s layered, casual, comfortable, chic and effortless and I love it so hard.
In that same vein, Badgley Mischka’s farm has been a long-time favorite. Fancy English Country and not exactly what I am going for, but I’m not mad at it one bit.
Shot by Roger Davies who shot our farm for Country Living last year. He is fantastic. If you want to look at some beautiful images of homes and lots of things, poke around his portfolio for a bit.
Finally, I need to see more Kathryn Windley’s home that was in Country Living awhile back.
That’s all I can find on the matter, and it’s a real tease. I need to see more.
I also want to see more Texas farmhouse. It’s been hard to find. I like my country with some context, a sense of place if you will. There are endless supplies of east coast country inspiration, which I love, but we are decidedly Texan and it’s really hot here and I feel like that changes things a bit. Or it should. But everything I find that has a more western flavor tends to go really hard in that direction, which isn’t exactly the goal either. So if any of you have some good Texas farm inspiration, please do share!
