YES! Rooth from A Miusmie is back for another spectacular open house. This time she shared a colorful home to feast our eyes with and oh, the outdoor space filled with greens cooling the temp!
At the moment, we are indeed caught within the deepest throes of summer. I hope that wherever you are dear reader, the sun is shining and everything is lush and verdant. The greenery is literally crawling all over the exterior of this large estate in Fort Worth, Texas, which has managed to capture the bright hues of summer both inside and out. The splashes of pink, yellow, and orange throughout the home keep the house from becoming too formal. Trying to count how many brightly coloured objects are in the living room alone is like an eye-spy picture book. I’m also convinced that the most endearing thing about this house is the yellow and white striped ceiling in one of the children’s bedrooms, almost like waking up in a circus tent every morning. I can’t applaud enough the use of blue tile and blue countertops in the kitchen - it wouldn’t work in any old space but here it’s a beautiful contrast to the rustic cabinets and tile.
In the cooler summer evenings set to the soundtrack of crickets and owls, you could sit out on the back patio by the fountain (or if it’s hot enough, in the fountain) and watch the vines and ivy extend themselves over the walls and wind their way around the outdoor fireplace. Set out some mega-powered citronella candles to light the mood and deter the bloodsuckers and you’ve got a perfect summer night, out amongst the stars.
