Southern Living unveils classic, modern Idea House

leave a comment »

Located on a Virginia farm, the house features classic southern design with a modern aesthetic.

On June 27, Southern Living, a brand known for celebrating life in the South, will debut its 26th annual Idea House, providing creative ideas and inspiration for prospective and current homeowners.  Located at Bundoran Farm in Charlottesville, Virginia, the home’s partners include interior designer Bunny Williams, Keith Scott and Julie Kline Dixon of The Rosney Company Architects, Jayson Collier of Summit Custom Home and luxury travel and real estate company Natural Retreats. The house is open for public tours until December 27.

“The 2015 Southern Living Idea House brings together some of the most talented names in the business to create a product that truly celebrates southern style,” said Sid Evans, editor-in-chief, Southern Living. “We’re excited to provide our readers with a sourcebook full of inspiration and help them create their ideal living space.”

Award-winning designer and Charlottesville native Bunny Williams approached the house’s interiors from a pragmatic, yet inspired, point of view, creating a space that blends timeless design and quality antiques with a lived-in, collected feeling. Bunny drew elements from the natural climate, such as a red-colored Persian rug in the Entry Hall that matches the red clay in Virginia, and purchased many of the accessories from antique shops in the area. Work by local artists is featured throughout the space, along with new items from Williams’ Ballard Designs line and her first-ever line of beds for Bunny Williams Home collection. The house is emblematic of Williams’ modern vision, a sense of history, and the confidence to take the unexpected path. Both a trailblazer and a tastemaker, Williams’ style is classic, but never predictable.

The 2015 Southern Living idea house is located just fifteen minutes south of Charlottesville and the University of Virginia, at Bundoran Farm by Natural Retreats, a conservation-based development where over 90 percent of the 2,300 acres are protected as a working landscape.
