The dining area looks toward the inviting great room, outfitted with comfortable contemporary furnishings and plenty of natural light. The oversized sectional sofa is great for entertaining family and friends or just relaxing after a long workweek. Donna brought in natural, garden-inspired elements such as a wicker table lamp and potted plants.

The couple gutted and rebuilt the kitchen to suit the contemporary farm style that they love. They chose cabinets with beadboard doors and exposed the original hardwood floors, bringing out the home’s inherent character. Stainless steel cup pulls offer a quintessential country flavor in an updated way.

This print, dating back to the late 19th century, hangs low above the kitchen countertop. The Skundriches found the piece in a New Orleans antiques store during one of many treasure hunting excursions.
Red trim from the doorway echoes in the formal living room, where casual patterns lend rustic appeal. As part of the home’s original footprint, much of the space was left undisturbed. Donna found the nesting baskets at a flea market, and a needlepoint pillow supports the vintage feel.
The cool blue master bedroom provides a refreshing wake-up call each day. “My home is my sanctuary," Donna says. "It's a place where I can come to unwind and relax.”
The glass-pane door connects to the deck and allows light to stream in during morning hours. The tall iron bedframe gives the space a subtle vintage touch, and a wicker chaise maintains the home’s connection to the outdoors.

Blair and Donna chose dark wood furniture for the home office as a way to update the country style. Family photos and vintage memorabilia create interest within the bookshelves, while potted plants breathe life into the space.

It was important for the couple to provide opportunities to connect to the property's natural surroundings. Donna designed the perennial garden with “little finds” to discover along the path.
