Step into the light-filled entryway and be greeted by rich wood floors, interesting art forms, and a velvet settee.

White walls accentuate the woods and modern neural decor. I’ve always been a huge fan of white and natural wood together.

I wish every vaulted ceiling was flanked with natural wood. The wood treatment creates a cozy feeling in the living room with its floor-to-ceiling fireplace.

Even the home’s vignettes include touches of wood.

Modern neutral decor and a wood ceiling continue into the family room. My eye was drawn to the artwork above the mantel that features a whirling dervish. I’ve always been amazed at this spiritual dance and find it quite mesmerizing.

    love it

  2. Are we witnessing the evolution of a neutral gal to a color/natural wood gal? 😜 It was rather refreshing seeing an unpainted/natural brick fireplace! I LOVE all white/neutral spaces but also love and appreciate how patinaed wooden decor seems to β€œcenter” us. Thanks for always offering us beautiful varieties.

    • Hi Deb! Yes, my tastes are definitely changing. I should do a blog post about the evolution of style (my first home was decorated with an Asian theme). I think you termed it correctly when you said the wooden decor “centers” us. That’s exactly the feeling I get from it!

  3. This appears to be a comfortable and livable home, although due to its contemporary feel, I would have chosen something other than brick for the fireplaces. I used to believe that brick should, in all instances, remain natural, but I do longer subscribe to that. I too enjoy the light neutral walls with light to medium wood accents and wish I could re-do my entire home accordingly. Sigh…..

    • Hi Pat – I agree – the wood and light walls is so captivating, in my opinion. I wish I had more natural wood pieces in my home. For now, I’ll just have to enjoy the look in photos of other people’s houses! πŸ™‚

    Gorgeous naturally designed home. Wouldn’t mind having that home on land we had in MT, would be perfect there.

    Happy week

    I am not a modern decor kind of person but, the fireplace, floors, and ceiling were truly beautiful.

  6. The home looks contemporary, clean and calm. Love to spend time all day there:)

    So pretty- I love the white and wood together too. And, when I looked on Houzz for more details, I found out that it is in my town! I always love to look at the homes you feature on Sundays. πŸ™‚

    • Hi Hilary! So glad you enjoy the home tours. And what a surprise to find out this one is in your town! Thanks for letting me know. πŸ™‚
