Glass {House} Half Full

I know I have seen this home floating around in blog land for the past couple of weeks but I cannot NOT post about it. It is the epitome of perfection to me!!!

I am absolutely enamored by their use of color even with a completely neutral back drop. This is exactly what I am trying to achieve in my own home and this spread in Elle Decor is just what I needed to see. I love the mix of styles in the living room above. Clean and fresh with the pops of red a fuchsia. I also love the antique breakfront behind the sofa.

The library is by far my favorite part of the house. Once again, neutral, mid century style with fabulous pops of color that add so much coziness to the space. I could spend all day in here reading from the light coming from the floor to ceiling windows.
 Then when I was done reading I would hop over to this desk and get some work done all while looking at the beautiful trees outside.....

Don't you just love that wood grain fabric!? It adds the perfect touch to update the classic armchair for the space.

The kitchen and screened porch were perfectly styled for this shoot. It still looks like people live there and use the space as is.....I love that! Though I do wish my house was this clean.
The mix of both mid-century pieces and a touch of the traditional antique is fantastic and has me wanting to just move in. I love the crisp white Ikea cabinets, concrete counters, cork floors, and board ceilings.

Again, that pop of color with the red Ikea bookshelf and purple pillow on the leather chair. It really helps bring life into the otherwise brown den.

Hmmn....where have I seen this before?

Oh yeah, here......
Nice change. It has been cleaned up, simplified, and the color on that console just seems to pop more. Amazing what different styling can do!!!

And how cute is this kids room!!! The primary color pallet is wonderful but grounded by all the white and olive green. Those are some lucky kids to be living in such a perfectly designed home.

Jay Fielden and his wife Yvonne, with the help of architect Robert Dean, did such a fabulous job restoring this mid-century modern glass house all while keeping it family friendly. Their designer Jesse Carrier also conquered the always difficult task of  designing the home with things the family already owned and received from family members. Such a perfect balance of mid-century, southern traditional from Yvonne's family, and Jay's family heirlooms from Texas.

In one Word........Amazing!
