Our next home tour comes to us from the quaint hills of Fluvanna County, half way between Richmond and Charlottesville. Fred and Morgan invited us to their incredible farm house that overlooks their budding Christmas tree farm. This stately home is a reminder of what makes ranchers so wonderful, a sprawling single-level floor plan and massive covered porch are among the benefits.
Isn’t it lovely? Allow us to take a closer look of the front of this amazing home:
Ample seating areas, an amazing slate floor and rustic wood ceilings make for a relaxing environment. The couple chose vibrant colors on their outdoor furniture of purple and royal blue to coordinate with their navy front door.
The living room is a mix of neutral textures, a bold woven rug and classic country decor. A pair of wingback chairs with script calligraphy fabric and contrast black piping sit on either side of the TV. The sofa is reupholstered in a textured solid with the black piping repeated for consistency.
Perhaps my favorite detail are the custom roman shades the couple had made for their french doors. Not only do these treatments provide shade and privacy, but they add a level of class and sophistication to the already stunning doors.
The next room we’re touring is the office. A simple room with a desk and chaise. Oh, and some stunning window treatments. I love how minimal this office is, I feel like some serious work could get done in here without distraction.
Across the hall from the office is a tranquil guest room, literally a room of my dreams. I love their fabric selections so much I may recreate them in my own home. Soft blue sets the tone for pops of orange, red, chartreuse and turquoise create a vibrant color pallet while crisp white linens and classic furniture keep the room feeling elegant and comfortable.
Fred and Morgan’s master is simple without being understated. Again a beautiful Persian rug sets the foundation for a stunning space. Their crisp draperies have a simple navy banding to add detail while keeping with a clean feeling. My favorite detail is the pair of lime buffalo check chairs, which are a family heirloom and the next project the couple will be sending to U-Fab. While I’m happy to have their business, I love the chairs as-is! Aren’t they stunning? However in this space I can see why they would make a little too much of a pop.
The kitchen is the next stop, and one that would probably be hard to leave. Sprawling counter tops, stainless appliances and rustic touches create a perfect blend of harmony. My favorite detail is the incredible wood stools. Beyond being beautiful, I believe they are hand carved and the swivel really makes them functional.
I’ll leave you with the final stop of the tour, and perhaps my favorite room in the house, their beautiful dining room. Take a peak at the funny pet artwork and at all the little nooks in their built-ins and you are sure to catch a glimpse of their humor and personality. This room is warm and inviting and looks like a beautiful space to host a dinner party (especially in the warmer months with those french doors open to their amazing front porch).
Morgan and Fred, we cannot thank you enough for inviting us into your incredible space.
