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.

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.”
