Beams

One of my (many) requirements for our next house, or at least one of our houses in the future (because I can't see us staying in one place for too long) is to have exposed beams on the ceiling. These pictures easily explain why.

Did you gasp a little when you saw these? I did. Ugh. To find a barn with bones like this and renovate = dream project.

 Classy and glamorous beams, with equally dramatic windows. Amazing.

 The beams don't have to be everywhere, but are a must-have in at least one room. The bedroom would be a great place, as seen here.

 When I say "beams", I prefer existing, and ancient ones. But newly built like these aren't too shabby either.

 I came across this picture during my "country" phase (which is still going strong, by the way). That wood with that stone fireplace- heaven!

 Again with a fireplace in the bedroom- sheesh! Now I want it all!

 Such a statement in a dining room!

Love them paired with a wall of windows, and simple wood finishes and white fabrics. So clean, yet cozy and inviting.

Something to think about while searching for the next place, whenever and wherever that may be!

  1. there is something about a soaring ceiling, wooden beams and a stone fireplace that would do beautifully in any era...proven timeless for a reason.
