American Farm House

By on January 22, 2013 in Gardens, Inspiration, Interiors, Kids, Lifestyle, Pretty Places 4

In my dreams I live in a beautiful old farmhouse with a rambling garden and a hammock to swing in. Somewhere in the South of France maybe? Preferably with a view of the sea from the vine covered patio…. You can picture it can’t you?

When it comes to interiors and homes I’m far more sure about what I love than when it comes to fashion. And I far prefer the relaxed, country style end of the spectrum to the sleek, modern style. Which is why I am LOVING this gorgeous home…. Would you believe it is in fact a 4-storey home located in Brooklyn, New York?

This “American Farm House” belongs to Miranda Brooks and Bastien Halard and they share it with daughters Poppy and Violette and 2 bunnies who live in a hutch on the roof! Miranda is a landscape designer and Vogue Contributing Editor, while Bastien is an architect.

I am in love with the wooden floors in the kitchen, the overgrown small garden with secret spaces and the ramshackle potting shed! And don’t you just adore the bookshelf in the bathroom – what a great idea.

So, where do you live in your dreams?

She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!
