Located just over an hour away from Dallas, Athens is a beautiful East Texas town and a popular city getaway. When repeat Dallas-based clients of designer Cathy Kincaid purchased an Athens farm in need of TLC, they asked her to create a true weekend family retreat. The bucolic setting boasts winding roads, bridges, a lake, and barns, and the oak trees and red soil reminded the husband of Virginia, where he is from. The couple has collaborated with Cathy on multiple projects and love creating beautiful homes. Both husband and wife were very involved in the creative process. With a mix of soft florals, antiques, painted furniture, and rustic accents, I cannot imagine a more perfect country home! Let’s take a look inside…
To read more about this home, I highly recommend Cathy Kincaid’s book, The Well Adorned Home. You can also see more of her work by visiting the following features by The Glam Pad:

Thank you so much for this beautiful post. That incredible gingerbread door surround! I’ve never seen that particular detail before. So quirky but in the right sense of the word. Serendipitously, I have Cathy Kincaid’s book by my bed at this very moment, but have yet to reach this farmhouse. I couldn’t agree more with your high recommendation of it.
She is another favorite designer of mine. Her book the well Adorned Home is so beautiful inside. Thank you for showing all these beautiful homes especially at this time.
I love everything except the quilted twin beds. They look too 1970s and seem out of place in this beautiful home.
But, Ms. Kincaid is very talented and I always get ideas when I see homes that she has designed/decorated.
