Habitat: Refined and Chic in Bucks County

Her Solesbury home is Danielle Datz’s design muse.

If you are prone to pining after a country retreat, this is your Bucks County sanctuary. This home marries Andrew Wyeth’s color scheme and simplicity with a sense of calm and comfort. Homeowner – and interior designer – Danielle Datz purchased the house in 2005 and while she said it was a “solid, well-built” home, she also concedes that it was “very ’80s.” She oversaw renovations herself and now calls the home her design muse.

More aspirational design this way.


The staircase in the foyer begs for a grand, chandelier-lit entrance.

The dining room makes mirrors out of unused doors and overlooks the sunroom.

The sunroom is just waiting for you and a book.

The family room also makes for a good reading nook if you can dare to ignore the television.

Datz said the kitchen is her favorite room because it turned out so dramatically different from its 80s roots. It was designed with help from Zak Yannerella at Z Y Woodworking in Doylestown. "It was the biggest transformation," she said. "It was hard to see the potential in that room."

    Danielle is truly the most talented designer. I wish the before photos were shared to fully reflect her vision, creativity and sense of style. Every room captivates you as you walk through, inviting you to linger just a little longer to appreciate everything there is to see. It is amazing how she can take such classic, timeless design elements and make them so unique and intriguing. Her home has an undeniable feeling of warmth the envelopes you the moment you set foot inside from the colors, textures and scents of the house. But the warmth is also attributed to the welcoming nature of the Datz family who are lucky enough to call this beautiful place home. The photos are simply beautiful. So glad others are able to view this stunning Solebury home. My absolute favorite!
