It’s going to take some convincing for you to believe that the following photos are from a vacation home outside of Beijing, China, and that was exactly the goal. This western-themed resort community nestled among the rolling hills of Jackson Hole, China is the perfect get-away that literally makes the homeowners feel like they are on the other side of the world.
For this design we pulled out all the stops and covered every inch with American charm. Because these are vacation homes, we were able to be a bit more liberal with whimsical design elements: checkered table cloths, fresh wildflowers, vintage farmhouse-kitchen accessories, and even a wagon wheel chandelier. A cool blue for the walls is a great compliment for the rich, wheat-field yellow brought in with the natural wood ceilings and accents. By using a variety of different blues, like the bright aqua side table and deep cobalt dishes, we were able to use the American primaries without looking like an American flag. Off white and rustic browns also help in creating a countryside farmhouse feeling throughout.
