My friend Roseline sent me a message the other day that her friend’s mom passed away suddenly and her beautiful farmhouse in The Netherlands has been put up for sale. Built around 1910 on the border of the towns of Knegsel and Veldhoven, it has been renovated and rebuilt several times over the years yet still maintains a time-worn look and appears to have been given a bit of an ethnic facelift recently. This home is absolutely stunning and what a dream it would be to put my mark on such a space. Listing details can be found here.

White and vintage in an East London home

Posted on Fri, 25 May 2018 by KiM

TGIF friends!!! Despite it being only a 3-day work week for me it felt like 12 and I am ready for a bit of relaxation, going back to sleep after the 4:30 am feeding of the herd, and some gardening. And to get this party started, here is a beautiful, bright home in East London with lots of white, a really cool kitchen (assuming a large chunk of it is behind the white doors), and some eclectic vintage furniture and lighting. Available as a location home through 1st Option Locations.

An apartment in Poland

Posted on Fri, 25 May 2018 by KiM

Lucyna Kołodziejska, the lovely interior designer from Gdańsk, Poland whose work we have featured for years, has kindly sent over some photos from one of her latest projects. This one is an apartment in Sopot, a resort city on the Baltic sea in northern Poland. As always Lucyna has done a fabulous job with this space, giving it an ethnic feel while keeping it modern and classy. I adore that tile inset into the floor in the kitchen and hallway and the mural  behind the bed.

White on white on white

I will admit that white scares me. I very rarely wear anything white and I never buy white items for my home. This home designed by Jennifer Wagner Schmidt is refined, casually elegant and soothing and ALL IN WHITE! It is making me rethink my fear of white. Now if you could cover everything in plastic and it still look this good I would be sold. 😉

Another dreamy apartment by Gisbert Pöppler

Posted on Wed, 23 May 2018 by KiM

I am a major fan of the designs of Berlin architecture and design firm Gisbert Pöppler because of their bold choices for furnishings, art and colour schemes. This apartment is typical of their work with drama in all 3 of those areas. I featured photos from this kitchen several years ago but its time to share the entire space. It’s museum-like yet has a coziness to it which I love.
