Rustic Light-Filled Malibu Home

Actor Patrick Depsey (otherwise known as McDreamy) and his wife, Jillian, adapted one of Frank Gehry’s earliest houses into a rustic and light-filled family family home, and I’m in love.  Though I love modern elements in design, I’m ever a sucker for farm tables, exposed wood beams, Moroccan rugs, and a classic airstream. The couple also filled the 5-acre property to the brim with three kids, three dogs, and an “ever-growing menagerie of chickens, miniature donkeys, rabbits, goats, pigs, and one rescued African tortoise.”  The lush backyard is equipped with a broad, flat lawn for soccer games, planting beds for vegetables and flowers, an alfresco kitchen with a pizza oven, a breezy dining area topped by a canopy of woven wicker, and coops, hutches, and other enclosures for the Dempseys’ growing farm.

That kitchen is everything … seriously swooning over the floating butcher’s block, concrete sink and countertops, silver range and hood, and that awesome over-sized chalkboard.

Home Tour: Maria of Dreamy Whites

Though it should come as no surprise, bloggers always have some of the most styled, elegant homes.  I on the other hand, spread my little creative outbursts across office/craft-room (that my husband put so much hard work into … and I now litter with ribbon, glitter, stamps, needles, office files, sandwich bags, my mind), kitchen counter, dining room table, coffee tables, nightstand, and bursting out of every drawer.

Back to the bloggers with the elegant homes …

stephmodo featured Maria’s home – the blogger behind Dreamy Whites – and it is just lovely.  Maria lives on a horse ranch in Northern California, where her husband is a professional trainer.  She’s transformed her home into a French-inspired farmhouse, all awash in soft whites.  I’m thinking of asking to move in.

Interiors: Country Store Home

Interior designer Barbara Westbrook lives in the village of Whittier Mill in Atlanta, Georgia in a home that was previously a general store.  In fact, many of the re-purposed shelves were leftover from the original store. And most of the interesting pieces of furniture that Barbara has gathered over the years, from the gorgeous leather club chair to the white Klismos chairs around the dining table and the weathered blue Swedish armoire, are amongst her favorite finds.
