As far as vacation homes go, I'm partial to the beach. But after seeing this Athens, Texas farmhouse by interior designer Marci Barnes of M. Barnes & Co., my mind is quickly changing! The home belongs to Dallas-based builder John Sebastian and his wife, Patti, who created an expansive country retreat to accommodate their four adult children as well as guests. We're talking a main house; a pool house with a guest suite, game room and home theater; a garage with a potting shed and guest apartment; a pool pavilion with an outdoor kitchen; and even a guest cabin in the woods! I'm loving the relaxed, laid-back vibe to all of the spaces and the fresh blue and green palette. So peaceful! See more photos by Dan Piassick and read the article all about the home here!
