we’re often asked how we pick the homes that land on these pages.

P.S. We’re thrilled to report that Country Home® magazine is available four times a year. As always, it’s on newsstands, and we’ve added a subscription option so you don’t miss a single issue. Visit TheMeredithStore.com to sign up today. Good question! For each issue, our mission is to seek out the most stunning examples of home design that fall under our magazine’s banner.

That’s because we aren’t simply looking for houses in the country; we are on the lookout for country homes. These places not only are aesthetically rich, but also share certain personality traits. Chief among them are originality, sentimentality, and authenticity. Country Home people are collectors who would rather…

DESPITE ITS NICKNAME, “STARK VEGAS,” STARKVILLE is not exactly a metropolis. Home to Mississippi State University, the city does offer plenty of culture, big-time football, and small-town charms, but unlike the city in Nevada, there’s more countryside than glitz and glam—something that has always been just fine for Kelli and Drew Anthony. The ability to work on campus and in town yet still find acreage to build a house just 10 minutes away is just one of the reasons the couple decided to make their hometown the site of their dream home after they married. Drew, a family practice doctor, and Kelli, a communications instructor at the university, met in high school and reconnected as adults. Farm life was one of the many things they had in common. Kelli grew up…

a dream in bloom

KERRI TABOR LOVES CUT FLOWERS. For years, she picked up store-bought bouquets to bring fresh flowers into their home. Then one day she thought, Why don’t I just grow these myself?

She wanted a backyard escape. Something like the English-style greenhouses she saw on Pinterest. “I was bugging Barry to death,” she says. “I would show him photos of every greenhouse I could find and tell him, ‘Wouldn’t it be cool if we could build a…
