This traditional Ohio house will have you pinning up a storm.

If you're a design fiend, you know perhaps the greatest brand of Instagram ecstasy is coming across a photo that offers a peek inside the home of your favorite tastemaker, blogger or designer. Sometimes it's just a glimpse of a top-down deskscape or a packing shot that reveals a killer pillow game. But sometimes, when you find yourself in the favor of the instastalking gods, you come across a crazy talent, who's made a habit of shooting every scrumptious detail of their home. Enter Melinda of House 214 Design, a decorator and writer who's Ohio home is an idea-filled dream project. (It's no wonder she's a fan of our last Instagram Home Tour subject, Eddie Ross.)

Her traditional, light-filled kitchen is without-a-doubt the centerpiece of this classic pad, awash in whites and grays, and featuring just about every detail we've been pining for (and pinning) of late. A beadboard ceiling and farmhouse sink lend a country note to the mix of old-fashioned cabinetry styles and contemporary stainless steel. Scroll down for our favorite spaces, and click over to her Instagram, @house214design, for much more. 

the kitchen

Upper cabinetry that sits on the countertop (a favorite trend of the moment), subway tiled walls that stretch from counter to crown molding, and wood-paneled ceilings—just leave us here to die. As if there were a doubt left in your mind about the A+ design choices in this kitchen, you should see Melinda's holiday tablescapes. Think tiny topiaries in iron urns and honey-colored tapers.

the living room + Mudroom

If one thing rivals the wonderfully rambling architecture in this home, it's the abundance of natural light. Check out #thatgoodlight drifting into the living room. The perfectly warm gray on the mudroom's sweet, locker-style storage is Martha Stewart's Schoolhouse Slate, and the light was a $30 antique store find rehabbed at the local hardware store.

the nursery

Two major nursery trends—the indoor teepee and the crafty garland—get fresh updates in a kids' space. A cloud-like cluster of paper lanterns in a serene, coordinating gray adds an almost fantastical feel.

The Master Suite

Classic, Swedish-leaning pieces define the spare master suite, where scalloped pillows pair with a collection of warm wood furnishings. Double pedestal sinks and marble-topped storage make the most of a bath with a small footprint.

the exterior

Of course the facade is picture perfect too! We can't get enough of that Craftsman style door, simple wreath, and sweet post box, not to mention the modern-feeling gray siding.
