I hate unpainted wood finishes on walls, cabinets and furnishings. I think I may have written those words early-on in my posting days. I've since learned the errors of my naive ways. The latest proof comes in the form of this beautiful country retreat featured in House and Home this month. I have this romantic notion of winter: snow-covered pastures, evergreen woods and a traditional farmhouse, complete with roaring fire and hot chocolate. This is that house. The rustic luxe approach, keeping furnishings neutral to ensure the rough, hand-hew woodwork takes center stage.
Oh dear lord, that ceiling! It's breathtaking.
