The Black Barn

the magic of this simple look


SOURCE: Country Home Magazine

I have long loved the classic, colonial look, of the black barn. Living in New York and often traveling to New England, this style and color of barn can easily be spotted throughout your travels. Yet in these past few years the black barn has become a modern architectural phenomenon that is now taking on the concept of 'home' for many. Here in this post I am sharing a curated collection (every image is linked) to some of my favorite black barn looks. I also see a painting project in my near future :)

Front Porch Facelift {Phase I}

outdoor sectional breathes new life into our porch


The winters in upstate New York are long and gray. Most days are bitter cold and sometimes you go a week or two without a bright sunny day. I love the change of seasons and appreciate the unique perspective and energy that each one brings. That being said, by the time Spring approaches I cannot wait to resume outdoor living. One of my favorite (and most simple) things to do is sit on my front porch with a cup of coffee and a good book or magazine. Wave hello to neighbors as they pass by (I apologize in advance for being in my PJ's most mornings) and start the day with a few moments of peace and reflection.

Paperless Post

a modern way to send invitations 


It was a lucky stumble on the world wide web I suppose. Finding this super modern and super fun company that allows people to send invitations in a way that makes sense using the technology that we all use each and everyday. Paperless Post has beautifully designed invitations for just about every occasion. When I say "designed" I'm talking brands like Anthropologie, Rifle Paper Co., Vera Wang and Kate Spade (just to name a few).
