City: McDougald Residence Traditional Porch

Linda McDougald, principal and lead designer of Linda McDougald Design l Postcard from Paris Home, re-designed and renovated her home, which now showcases an innovative mix of contemporary and antique furnishings set against a dramatic linen, white, and gray palette.

The English country home features floors of dark-stained oak, white painted hardwood, and Lagos Azul limestone. Antique lighting marks most every room, each of which is filled with exquisite antiques from France. At the heart of the re-design was an extensive kitchen renovation, now featuring a La Cornue Chateau range, Sub-Zero and Miele appliances, custom cabinetry, and Waterworks tile.

Benjamin Moore Bronzetone 60 is still available. Your local Benjamin Moore retailer should know exactly what it is.

It looks very similar to a Lantern & Scroll light fixture (find them on here or Facebook or www.lanternandscroll.com) I think maybe their John Street collection. Also, if they can make a custom fixture as well. They are awesome to work with and very reasonably priced. Cheers!

They are simple standard windows with transforms above. The wooden arches were custom crafted locally and placed in transoms to create the custom look.

Comfort of Sofas - I noticed you use Lillian August a lot. Her sofas are very fashionable. However, how do you find their comfort level? I am looking for a timeless sofa that is super comfortable.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kelly Porter added this to Discover White’s Surprising Power to Energize Every Room
Include the outdoors. Last, don’t neglect the outside and open-air spaces of your home. Your porch is an ideal place to go with an off-white, particularly if this area is very sunny, as a pure, crisp white could make things just too bright. For an elegant touch of contrast, paint the trim and doors black or dark gray.This paint color is Natural Choice by Sherwin-Williams.Tell us: What are the different ways you’ve used white in your home?
