I’d Live There: Neko Case’s Vermont Farm

I’m not usually one for country living (though I guess my last couple of posts in this series don’t suggest that).  But how can you not want to live on a farm in Vermont after looking at these pictures. Exposed beams, breakfast nooks, vegetable plots…. Oh, and it certainly doesn’t hurt that Neko Case just oozes “cool.”

Check out some of my favourite pictures from Country Living’s article below, or click HERE to see the whole set.

Deborah Bowness's photo-realistic wallpaper, plus a few actual bookshelves, turns the upstairs hallway into a de facto library.

The floor tile is by Daltile; the stools came from Restoration Hardware.  Read more: Neko Case Vermont Farmhouse - Neko Case House Tour - Country Living

I’d Live There: Small town Ontario

OK.  So the title is kind of a lie.  In reality, I probably never would live in small town Ontario, or any small town to be honest.  A summer living in Monticello, Utah (population 1900) cemented my status as an urbanite.  That being said, in travels across  southern Ontario for work and play, I fall in love over and over again with the gothic revival farmhouses from the 1800s that dot the landscape.

Last weekend took me to the small town of Beaverton, Ontario while shooting a music video with my band The Strumbellas.  The town of 2,500 is chock full of beautiful historic homes that I wish I’d snapped a few pictures of.  I’ve scoured the pages of realtor.ca looking for the perfect home to share, but have come up short.

If you’re interested, though, check out the Gothic Revival page at OntarioArchitecture.com.
