House Tour: Villanova Residence


 We’re so excited to be traveling to this gorgeous Villanova, PA home today. With the pastoral setting and charming architecture, this home had us at hello!


 And, as you can see, the inside doesn’t disappoint either! 


 The symmetry of this architecture is stunning, and cohesive design choices add to the symmetry.


 Huge living spaces can be difficult to design, but the architecture in this home lends itself beautifully to two separate living spaces.  We love that these sitting areas are cohesive without being matchy.


Fireplace sconces are so pretty for adding tons of light to a space. They not only highlight the mantle but also make the entire room feel warm and inviting.


 The windows in this kitchen are perfection, and we love the open feel. 


 This formal dining room feels special without being stuffy. The chandelier is so charming, and we love displaying all that fancy china. It’s so much better than storing it away in a box somewhere!


 This nook is such a bold departure from the neutrals in most of the house. And who says you have to go outside to see the stars?


 This vibrant color lends this room loads of energy. We’re obsessed with the leather bull by the chair!


 We love houses that take advantage of opportunities. This tiny space could so easily have been overlooked but transforms into the most charming reading spot.


 Lounging by this pool and admiring the incredible landscape truly feels like escaping to a different world. We would want to spend all of our time out here!



We’d be hard pressed to pick our favorite thing about this house, but we’d say the outbuildings might be it. They truly create that estate feel.


 Breathtaking from every angle!


 We hope you’ve enjoyed this escape to the countryside — we know we have! We’re breathing deeper and slowing down just imagining ourselves here. Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday!
