{house tour: country chic}

I just had to share this stunning little gem with you today! It's an open concept country home belonging to designer Ingrid Oomen and her husband Asad Wali. This lovely space was featured in the April issue of House & Home, but what made me fall even harder for this home was the video walk tour featured on H&H Online TV last week! In the 5 min video segment, you can really get a better sense of how large, bright, and open this 1,200 square-foot space appears. It even captures the gleam of the gorgeous oversized floor-to-ceiling subway tiles in the Master bath! And the black & white palette brings a touch of city chic to this country charmer. What's not to love?


Believe it or not, that's an IKEA kitchen! Fitted with glorious crown moldings, Ingrid acheived a totally custom look:




An antique Mennonite armour is a stunner in the living room!






Whenever you've got 5 min's to spare, check out the lovely video tour by clicking on the image below:

Hi Nancy,

I agree with Charlotta. Those floors are amazing. Do you think anything here might compare? I'd love to do that with my home. Even without watching the video, I'd say that space looks much larger than 1200 sqft.

Very nice. I really like how the dark flooring, black fireplace, and big wood armoire add warmth and contrast to the home. It looks elegant & comfortable at the same time.

I don't think of myself as a country gal but I could be very happy in this home... LOVE the dining table, the cabinets and millwork and that bathroom is to die for! The kitchen is fantastic.

I am loving the clean look of the abundance of white, especially against the dark wood floors, but how cute is that little gnome?
