I oohed and aahed and loved every minute while home in this perfect little town with my almost perfect family (ha ha), and finagled my sister into chauffeuring me around for a house tour. To anyone who may have seen some stranger with a digital camera in their driveway or creepily slowing down in front of their house, please take it as a compliment!
I loved the Robin's Egg Blue front door of this house... especially with the pine garland and wreath.
This is the home of one of my very very very best friends parents... I've been friends with her since 1st grade. Being the style maven that she is, she obviously had to have come from a super cute and stylish home like this!
The required white picket fence is only surpassed by the perfectly pink front door and avocado shutters. I think this paint job is relatively new and it makes the house stand out more than I can ever remember.
I love this Hampton's style painted shingle house with its natural shingle roof. Its so pretty. I feel like the Barefoot Contessa must be somewhere inside!
Caroline's Dream Farmhouse, or in other words the one house my sister did not mind slowing down for! This is an older home that just exudes New England charm. The horribly overcast light of the day is making the shutters look black, though they are really dark hunter green. I think its a slate roof (?). The rock wall is an authentic colonial wall...these run rampid all over Connecticut!
A barn near my parents house that belongs to another colonial era home. The property also has a pond which we would ice skate on when we were little, though No Trespassing signs sadly prohibit young Ridgefielders from doing that now.
This is one of my favorite houses. I've always loved its salmon pink color scheme...the Bahamas has come to Ridgefield!
And lastly, my absolute favorite - my parents home. Its been the stage for my quirky family's adventures for 20+ years and is filled with antiques, family heirlooms, and an insane amount of treasures in the storehouse that is the basement. Up next are some of the interior decorations of my mother, more affectionately known as Martha-in-the-Making!
