Kathryn M Ireland

I am not a big fan of Spanish design
Nor using a lot of bold colors together
But this house is so happy
And cheerful
I couldn't help it
But to fall in love
This once abandoned ranch in Ojai
Was restored and decorated by British interior and textile designer
Kathryn M Ireland
And since it is taking too long
For me to win lottery :)
This house has been sold
To Reese Witherspoon
And now it serves as her weekend house where she actually keeps her chickens, horses and all that
But if you love this happy and really cheerful house
Kathryn M Ireland has her new book titled
Creating A Home
Which shares her journey of finding this once crumbling ranch
To finishing each rooms of the house

I always felt restoring a house or a furniture piece
Is like a fairly tale

A fairly godmother
Using her magic
To create a beauty out of an undesired gem

And Kathryn M Ireland is my new favorite fairly godmother
Who has an invisible wand
For her incredible magic :)

  1. this is a very beautiful home she did! Kathryn M. Ireland is a great designer (although her style is not totally mine, i do like the homes she does). Rachel Ashwell once featured her on her show on the Style network! i am so jealous you live in California...winter will be soon here in Chicago! Also, there are so many more Shabby Chic, cottage style shops in California!
