Gorgeous. Gorgeous. Gorgeous. And it looks so comfortable!
Absolutely stunning!! Perfection is in the details, and you are the master of details. (Love love love the giant clam shell!)
Joan, my heaven- it is lovely!
Joan, this room is perfection!!
I didn't think it was possible to make this room even more inviting but I was wrong with the addition of more plants. The fabric on the sofa pillows is so beautiful and fresh looking for summer. Did you get a new brass tray leaning up against the barn door or did you polish all the brass?
Beautifully designed room....comfortable, relaxing.....great blend of new and vintage! Simple gorgeous! ;)
I missed your posts and so very happy to see this one! Love the sense of peace and relaxation the room excudes - well done! Catherine from Southern Ontario, Canada
Perfect summer look. I see that is where you watch TV , I never noticed it on the wall before. My cats would love to hide under the giant shell. Really my older cat would when the younger much spunkier one would decide "time to play", he does torment her at times!
Love love love. Perfect design as always. I just moved into a new house and your barn room is my inspiration for decorating our family/fireplace room. Thanks for sharing!
Very invitinf. Gorgeous
Absolutely gorgeous! Glad to have you back!!
Be still my heart!
Beautiful, as always, Joan. Good to see you back in blog land! Hope you're enjoying your summer.Claudia
Yup....everything is perfect! Fresh....and ready for summer! Love your style so much.
Lovely, lovely and more lovely. I love your barn room in any season...your home too for that matter.
Just beautiful Joanie!! The room looks so calm and cool too. Please tell the story of the shell! It is a great story.
So happy to see your post and your room is amazing! The leaf on the coffee table and the giant shell are stunners!
I love when you share more photos of your beautiful home. I really study them and learn how to mix texture, pay attention to scale, and how to add the unexpected( your giant clamshell on the floor). Now I wonder which room do you spend the most time in when they are all so lovely! I would probably have to rotate every 15 minutes all day long so I could enjoy them all!
Love the striped rug and the big shell! The whole room looks wonderful
Beautiful. As always. So calm and inviting. I'm glad to see you back!Betsy
Absolutely beautiful! You are a master of making a room lovely, inviting, comfortable and fresh. Love all the details and will come back again and again. We just got back from vacation so I am "dressing" our house for summer too. This is such a fabulous room. I also am going to go try to follow you on Instagram. XO
Oh, read some of the comments and see there is a "story" of the clam shell. Hope you'll share:)
So happy to see this. Missing your posts. The room is beautiful, of course!Kisses to Ella!
Your finished beautiful New Hampshire home gives us much inspiration as we are in the throes of the loudest/messiest portion of our reno work here in Warner, NH. We haven't missed Houston for a single moment!
It's beautiful, as always. Thanks for the inspiration.
wow, i love it - and the art work on the wall - flower prints, etc. just wondering if you made those yourself. It's all gorgeous.
...simply wonderful!...the original barn doors always make me smile...they are so perfect...have missed you...blessings...laney
Simply lovely, I have missed your post. Have a wonderful summer.
Joan,The light in the room is wonderful. It looks perfectly dressed for the warmer months of summer. I love the details on each of the tables. You have impeccable style!xo,Karen
I was so happy to see your post and have missed them. I can't even put into words how much I love your home and your style. I truly dream about it. I love when you take close up pictures of every single thing that you put on a table or anywhere. best regards, Wenda
Beautiful! Warm, yet crisp and clean...perfect for summer! Always enjoy getting a peak into your home!~CharlotteSimplyLoveDesign
Beautiful. Your house always looks so peaceful, warm, comfy and carefully put together, it's such a joy to see your posts. Thank you for sharing,
Your barn room is my all-time favorite room in the world: spacious yet inviting. I love it dressed for summer or cozied up for winter. Even though I try, my attempts to recreate your style do not translate into your magical perfection. You have a gift.
Relaxed elegance at its best.... Amazing room.XxDore
Cool calm and collected! Love it...but that HUGE clam shell. Oh. If it ever needs to go to summer camp....of college in FL. I will happily open our home to it. :) So happy to *see* you my friend.
Gorgeous! I've missed your posts and made do with your fun Instagrams, but I love seeing your home.
The room looks amazing. I'm especially drawn to the beautiful array of muted toned pillows. Can you mention where you got them? Would love to calm down our family room in a similar way. Thanks!
Joan, Your home is beautiful and the barn room is my favorite.
I especially love your vintner's table - it looks wonderful with the collection of treasure's on it. The room is bright and open with the summer sun coming in - very inviting.
So serene and airy. You are a master of "costume changes" for your rooms. I've adored this room in all the photos you've shared of it. And I'll add my voice to those who say they've missed you. Would love some pics of your garden this summer too!
Gorgeous of course I expected nothing less!
PERFECT, is the only way to describe !!!!!! #lovePaige.Rosefromwww.TheQuaintSanctuary.blogspot.com

What an absolutely beautiful space - I can picture you floating through it dressed in white linen, cool as a cucumber, as the saying goes!
As always, just stunning!!! My very favorite house on ANY decorating blog! I would love to see a list of details. I love the placement of your furniture, does Dan watch TV from the sofa? I love the furniture placement but I can hear my hubby whining! :)
my favorite room in your house - it's beyond fabulous. i would never leave - i would sleep there!!!
I love your house. That room is beyond beautiful!! I want to be there for sure. I would love to have a coffee with you!
