French farmhouse

Let's take a short break from all of the Christmas fanfare, shall we?

This beautiful faux French farmhouse is actually located in one of the most prestigious neighborhoods in Houston.  You might not even be able to tell, except for the perfectly manicured kelly green lawn and shrubs.  I like it for the hobbitness, which is the only word I could come up with to describe the barrel vault ceilings and cheerful rustic feel.  This "farmhouse" goes for approximately $5 million so it has its share of grand living rooms and master bedrooms but the pictures I included below are of the more homey parts of the house.  The dining room and kitchen are probably my favourite rooms in this home - can't you see Gandalf and Frodo wandering through those hallways?


  1. this is certainly an amazing house!
    beautiful blog you are having here, thank you for taking a brake from all Christams fanfanre as you put it... good to reaad about something else!

  2. this reminds me of our house. erm, not grand like that, lol, but that it's a new rustic - rustic elements but ultimately a new build. i still prefer an old house renovated. just can't fake old.
