Joy's Chic House



A creative and dramatic home that feels so inviting.

I cannot recall exactly how I came across this amazing photographer—no doubt sometime throughout my blog visits. Nevertheless, I couldn't resist sharing this contemporary, open and chic place, that incorporates some wonderful and thoughtful details to admire...













Personally, I find the plush, slip—covered sofas, the oversized pottery, the dining room table and chairs, the hidden refrigerator, the modern and organic wood accents, and that fabulous garage door to be lovely. I love how it instantly opens up the house, brings in the fresh air, and creates an ongoing outdoor living space. Perfect for Spring and Summer days, where all you want to do is be outside and enjoy the sunshine... Which features do you like best?

Great Links for the Weekend and...

  10. SO chic. GREEN, WHITE, BLACK. It looks like a happy home and I love the wood detailing--earthy, grounded, against the fresh and vivacious. It makes me miss having a pool in my back yard as a child, too. It's funny how we take things for granted, and then when they're gone, we finally appreciate them. Beautiful shots!

  11. Linda -- I know exactly what you mean! For some reason, I was looking at it, and found it to be not as warm as the houses I typically love, but at the same time, so inviting and interesting...

  18. Courtney -- because you're local, you'll know exactly what I'm talking about -- doesn't this home remind you a little bit of the original Liberty store style?

  20. this is such a striking home. what i love the most (besides the breathtaking color palette of course) is how comfortable it all seems! you're so right about the slipcovered sofas and all the wood accents — they make a dramatic space feel very cozy indeed.

  25. Hi Sarah! Just stopping in now, been so busy this week! I love the whole boho laid back style of the home, particually the casual outdoor seating area. I love how it lies directly onto the ground, very casual.
