I came across this photo a while ago and have had it on my inspiration board forever. It's simplicity without sacrifice.
It's a simple, white house, but the slight architectural detail in the porch and windows make it pretty. There's a simple, white picket fence, but the detail around the top adds so much charm. There is little landscaping, but the simple stone pathway and potted hydrangea shrubs add whimsy. And the view - simply breathtaking!
I often feel that "simple" means bare and slightly boring, but that's not always the case. Sometimes, the slightest detail is just enough to achieve the simplified look, without compromising personal style and character.
Have a lovely week!
