I usually spotlight interiors of homes that I would like to live in. I get inspired by the furniture styles, paint colors and fabric patterns, architecture and artwork that is featured in the room. This time, however, I am going to focus on the exterior of a home and all I can say is “Please let me live here!”
This gorgeous farmhouse style home, designed by Millhaven Homes, is located in one of my favorite places-Utah. It is so serene I can almost hear the silence! Here are a few reasons why this home appeals to me:
- The mountain backdrop is heavenly! To quote John Muir “The mountains are calling and I must go.” A little bit of snow is nice but imagine how beautiful these mountains must be covered in snow. I could build my own ski lift and shoosh down those runs and bowls any time I wanted.
- All of that green grass is so appealing to this girl from southern California who almost never sees a large expanse of beautiful green lawn. However, after a record breaking winter of rain, the experts tell us that the drought is over so maybe people will start planting grass again. After all, does anything smell better in the spring and summer than freshly cut grass?
- The simple black and white color scheme is classic and timeless. And the beauty of our American Flag set against that simple backdrop is wonderful. The only change I might make is an unexpected pop of color on the front door and perhaps a more comfortable pair of rocking chairs on that front porch.
- The metal porch roof is a nice and somewhat modern touch to the otherwise classic farmhouse style.
How about you? Could you live here?
