Prippy of Influence... Barrie Benson

One of my favorite Domino covers featured Barrie Benson and her amazing renovated ranch home in North Carolina.

I remember being completely taken by her style, and her ability to turn an average home (with the help of her architect hubby) into a completely eclectic and warm showcase for patterns and textures. Case and point - her flagstone floored kitchen with vibrant seating.

The bedroom above is pretty much my ideal!

Her house is still one I dream about... and maybe one day I will find a Prippy palace to restore and make my own!

Love her home. Especially her use of orange throughout the house. Makes it so cozy.
