The Countryside Blues

I just came back from spending a glorious holiday weekend in upstate New York in a dreamy farmhouse we rented. I simply fell in love with it. It was all I expected it to be and more. So now I'm in a country state of mind and I'm having a hard time snapping out of it. I had stumbled upon this charming house a few weeks ago and thought today would be a perfect time to share it with you since it sort of fits my mood. This scruffy 1862 Swedish brew house was recently revamped into a functional and cozy family home to be used only as a Summer house. However, its lucky owners loved it so much they decided to make it their permanent residence. The whole renovation was done by them, including most of the furniture which they built. They intended to keep the raw industrial feel of the old house, dominated by concrete, steel and polished stone floors. But they absolutely made it warm and inviting with all their personal touches used around the home, like the soft, organic lamb skins they used on their dining room chairs.
