Over 8 inches of snow fell in northern Illinois this weekend and I’m ready to head some place warm and sunny. How about Australia? We’re trekking to the land down under to tour a beautiful home by Adam Cox with both beach and farmhouse appeal!
The entrance of this Australian beauty gives a glimpse of its country charm and rich detailing. The front door is uniquely amazing while the straw hats provide a down-home charm.
Inside the foyer, you can see the pretty colors of the leaded glass. An art deco pendant light enhances the look of the door. A glimpse of the ceiling shows the intricate detailing there, as well.
A pretty crystal chandelier hangs in the living room from another embossed ceiling. Box windows with unique trim let in plenty of natural light.
A comfy reading chair creates a cozy spot for reading. The leaded glass theme continues inside the home on transom windows.
A high ceiling in the kitchen provides ample space for an overhead pot rack.
Step back a bit for a better view of the Victorian style pendant light in the kitchen.
Black cross-back farmhouse chairs cozy up to a simple dining table. You’ll find more architectural detail in this space – no need to have a lot of embellishment on the walls. Keeping it simple allows the beautiful bones of this Australian beauty to take center stage.
So far, this is my favorite office space that I’ve ever seen. A tall bookcase comes with a handy ladder and tall doors let in plenty of light.
The handsome desk faces another box window with unique trim. Touches of blue add just the right touch of color. This is definitely my dream office.
A simple bedroom enjoys graphic sheets and pillows.
A gorgeous marble floor sets the stage for a spa-like bathroom. The dark navy paint adds warmth to the space.
This Australian beauty truly has it all! An ample porch is shaded by palm fronds creating the perfect space for a tropical getaway.
True to form, the exterior of this classic home is dedicated to pretty details.
