Now that summer is brightening up our days and our spirits (was that too forcefully positive – can you tell I have a case of the TGIF’s?!), I am pretty sure I am not the only one looking forward to their vacations now that the nice weather has started to set in. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love what I do and am so grateful everyday to be doing something I love and constantly be challenged creatively. BUT there is no substitute for the weekend recharge or even better… when that PTO vacation hits and you just get to check out of life, work, responsibilities, and just about everything else for a period of time.
A vacation should be a time where you can instantly relax from the stress of work and your daily life IE DO NOTHING and not feel one ounce of guilt about it. And although I constantly find myself looking for tiny little cottages, lake houses, shacks or condos for sale that I could fix up and call my own in some day-trip lengths distance, you and I both know that is not happening anytime in the near future so until then I’ll just keep pinning away until I finally have a little piece of property to call (and vacation to) my own.
Which brings me to this boho farmhouse that I recently stumbled upon and was designed by Jennifer Bunsa. It’s crazy, it’s massive, it’s part art collector, part granny, and part anthropologie catalog, but I am into it and I could definitely get into calling this a vacation home.
As mentioned above, its got some major anthro/art house vibes going what with that massive rope installation and the factory floor to ceiling windows – and I love it.
Oh and in case you were wanting to channel your golden girls vibe you can hang out in this sunroom.
Gah. That dining room and that lighting fixture. How HUGE is this place?
The kitchen is a room that I actually get very into and behind both stylistically and functionally. I love those huge benches, the massive island and the mix of reclaimed woods, copper, mint cabinets, and blue tile. It sounds crazy, and yes it is, but it works.
Pretty sure this looks like the perfect place to stash my goods post hiking or camping with friends for the weekend.
Laundry room? Mud Room? Kitchen for washing the dishes the bus boy brings in? I have no idea.
But then you have this room which looks more like the mud room, and I obviously love – worn leather, black and white and gray… YES.
The bedrooms don’t disappoint either – although I can’t promise you will be able to relax with that trippy wallpaper.
However, this room is somewhere I could definitely wind down and relax. 10 points for whoever can tell me what that black slit in the wall is on the right hand side. Is it an AC return or vent?
Again with the insane tile, but I love this.
Assuming this is the den/media room?
This bedroom feels a bit more relaxing and manageable for a good snooze.
Who else is ready for the weekend?!
