Illinois Barn Retreat from Cookie

Cookie Magazine is usually Ohdeedoh's territory, but this Illinois barn retreat struck us as a home that anyone would enjoy (with or without kids). We bookmarked this a long time ago, and re-found it in our files the other day. With the wind and weather raging outside, it seems like a great time to revisit this cozy Midwestern house...

We found this rural family home on Cookie's addictive nesting blog. Homeowner Lori Pickert gives a full interview on how she created a beautiful "vintage modern" barn house furnished from thrift store finds.
