Pastel blue is such a pretty color. While it might look a little too sappy sweet for a home with siding, a brick ranch is the perfect canvas for the shade. The brick texture will give it enough interest to help your exterior feel light and homey. Lots of us wish we lived in a cabin in the woods and if you’re ranch house is located in some trees, you can get that look easier than you think. Just go with a brown siding, wood or paint, and your everyday home will look like a vacation house immediately.
White ranch houses are not to be ignored. They take a normal home and make it look like a classic farmhouse that has housed the same family for generations. Plus you’ll love the way your Christmas wreaths stand out against the creamy tone. Of course if you love brick, you probably aren’t thinking about completely repainting your ranch house. Consider giving it a light brush over to soften the orange-y red shade into a welcoming country tone.
There’s also another particularly interesting detail about these spaces. It’s the way in which they’re all interconnected. The ground floor has an open floor plan so that’s a given but there’s also a connection between these spaces and those upstairs. This connection between the rooms is ensured through openings, doors, windows and even a series of unusual voids. An interesting example is the small home office which is one of the spaces upstairs. It has a wall-mounted desk which continues to the side and forms a shelf that hangs over a void in the wall through which the living area downstairs can be seen.
The Vidpusk story began in Romania ( a small country in Europe ) back in 2017 when founder and CEO Alouria Mackenzie launched a blog that would go on to become one of the most popular and successful online magazines to date focusing on interior design and architecture. Currently clocking up an impressive 3.8+ million unique monthly visitors, the site provides daily inspiration and advice to those who are seeking to improve, organise and style their homes. With an archive of 7000+ posts featuring over 90,000+ images of great interior products and architectural projects it is no wonder that Vidpusk has one of the most engaged online communities on the net.
