Red, White & Green

  • Pine Adirondack chairs—painted “Mountain Stream” from Pittsburgh Paints—sit sentry year round on the wraparound porch.
  • Simple parson chairs strike a festive pose when tied with a bright red ribbon and decked with humble ornaments.
  • Lynnette uses white Stargazer lilies throughout the home as a reminder of Christmas in New Zealand, where people typically decorate for the holidays with an abundance of fresh cut flowers.

Lynnette and Mitchell Eisen created a family home that combines elements of their respective childhoods—hers, beach front New Zealand, and his, a wraparound porch in Toronto. The charming result is a practical home that welcomes family and friends with natural light and and casual comfort.

“Find something from nature like the bark on a tree, or a sentimental decoration, and use that as inspiration. Be creative and let the design reflect your individuality.” ~Lynnette 

Winter whites and natural earth tones bring nature’s palette indoors. The effect is enhanced by large windows that make the connection stronger still, infusing the country home with natural light.
