kristin nicholas houseIf you know anything about Kristin Nicholas (and you do if you were here for my Color by Kristin giveaway) you know that she’s a huge fan of color. Her patterns are usually full of colorful, fun designs sure to delight the knitter, the wearer of the garment and anyone who sees it.

It comes as no surprise to me that her home looks pretty much the same. Nicholas and her husband raise sheep in Massachusetts and live in a 3,500 square foot farmhouse that is full of color and awesome antiques. You can check it out for yourself in this tour at Houzz.

The original house was built in the 1750s and it was added onto in the 1970s and again a couple of years ago. Colorful walls in green, orange and yellow further brighten the light, cheery space. I want to live in the window seat covered with Nicholas’ pillows!

If you need a lesson in not being afraid of color, check this house out!

    Thank you for sharing, love the whole house. Cannot believe people would even complain about it. It looks lived in, loved and the colors are awesome. Thanks for the link, and thanks Kristin!
    PS I keep telling my hubby, other people have lots of books too!
