There is no denying that home decor trends come and go as quickly as the rainy whether here in LA (which in case you haven’t guest is very often). But there is something that will never get old, or feel trendy about a beautifully antiqued and worn farmhouse. When it comes to farmhouse style, the traditional thought is, rustic, reclaimed woods, rugged, and a slight influence of americana. Maybe it’s an old converted barn, a rugged log cabin, or even a little cottage with squeaky hardwood floors out in a field. But Masseria Morasetta in Italy has thrown the farmhouse cliche in the pizza oven and popped out this stunning little cannoli for you to feast your eyes on.
As they put it, “As you drive down an old country road lined with century old olive trees, you will come to Masseria Moroseta, a white stone house standing proudly on a ridge overlooking the Adriatic Sea and the nearby town of Ostuni. Built with local materials and using traditional techniques, its modern architecture was influenced by the great estates of the Puglian countryside. Surrounded by five hectares of organic olive groves, the farmhouse is an enclave of tranquility and rural simplicity.”
Um… when can I book myself a room.
The rooms are simple, graphic, and all tones of neutral which is obviously tugging at my colorless heartstrings.
And in case you are wanting to channel your inner Boy Scout and build your fireplace whilst cuddling up with a striped Pendleton inspired blanket they have you covered. Just don’t forget your backpack when you push your way through the wood framed doors to do some foraging in the olive orchards surrounding the grounds.
Every room seems to have the perfect mix of – my great, great, great grandmother handed this down to me, I bought this at one of the charity shops down the road, this is from a high end designer showroom, and I found this out in the countryside. AKA basically casual, effortless-chic in all the right ways.
And if the rooms don’t do it for you then the architecture alone should. The crisp white walls, the hard edges, and the juxtaposition of wide open spaces and narrow passageways make for the perfect place to get lost… or have a photoshoot.
