Some homes simply require that you stop and take notice. This Buck County house and garden, complete with its stone facade and charming gate, is one of those enviable spots. And its storybook exterior is only the beginning.
This gorgeous light-filled living room beckons anyone who enters to stay awhile. A glass-top table combines perfectly with beautiful upholstery for a cozy feeling.
And nothing could make for a cozier living room than a crackling fire and a little corner chair.
We love a sofa table for creating the feeling of distinction between rooms in an open floor plan. A pair of lamps lights the space perfectly.
We’ve always been throw rug people, but more and more, bare wood floors seems to appeal to us. They contrast beautifully with light furnishings and make everything feel fresh and clean.
Displaying the work of a fabulous artist is one of the chief jobs of a great piece of furniture. And it’s all the better when the chest could be art as well!
The wood cabinets in this kitchen contribute to that country farmhouse feel.
A canopy is one of our favorite ways to add luxury and glamour to a bedroom.
That pale blue is the perfect, soothing paint color and those wide-plank floors are perfection!
A chaise in a bedroom would be our favorite spot for lounging.
There’s nowhere in the house that we love more than porches and patios. Entertaining would be a snap on this amazing slate patio.
A charming, well-manicured garden is great for whiling away an afternoon and some good, hard thinking time.
The view of the garden from this sunny spot is just perfect! So relaxing! We hope your Wednesday is the same!

Here’s What’s Next from the Murphy Women:
From internationally bestselling author and “rising star of Southern fiction” (Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times bestselling author) Kristy Woodson Harvey comes the third novel in her Peachtree Bluff series, in which a secret threatens the tight-knit bond between a trio of sisters and their mother.
With the man of her dreams back in her life and all three of her daughters happy, Ansley Murphy should be content. But she can’t help but feel like it’s all a little too good to be true.
Meanwhile, youngest daughter and actress Emerson, who is recently engaged and has just landed the role of a lifetime, seemingly has the world by the tail. Only, something she can’t quite put her finger on is worrying her—and it has nothing to do with her recent health scare.
When two new women arrive in Peachtree Bluff—one who has the potential to wreck Ansley’s happiness and one who could tear Emerson’s world apart—everything is put in perspective. And after secrets that were never meant to be told come to light, the powerful bond between the Murphy sisters and their mother comes crumbling down, testing their devotion to each other and forcing them to evaluate the meaning of family.
With Kristy Woodson Harvey’s signature charm, wit, and heart, The Southern Side of Paradise is another masterful Peachtree Bluff novel that proves she is a “Southern writer with staying power” (Booklist).
