Sheer bliss

There was a photographer's site that led to a rep's site that led to a photographer's site that led to an interior designer's site and then it was a moment that focused in on all things zen and balanced, natural and beautiful. Michaela Scherrer mixes old with new, the simple with the complex and her work is stunning in it's simplicity. There is a Japanese aesthetic obvious in the clean contemporary lines of her spaces,the contrast of textures. So peaceful.

these pics describe my perfect living space: soothing neutrals, casual, unconventional, slightly minimal, organza and linen....plus breezy, open-air living (i feel lucky to already have that part!)

those paintings are so zen, serene.

this is one of the very best posts i've seen on interiors. seriously.

I love all of the neutral linen. It is my very favorite fabric. All crunched up and soft...

Thanks for turning me on to this designer. She creates such beautiful, peaceful spaces......I'm all about feeling good inside, and that's how I feel just looking at the pictures.

I am wondering if the white slipcover porch w/ the concrete block walls is the same material my house is made of, DAC-ART. Looks the same but I don't recognize the setting. I am just finished up and have photo journaled the process...still a lot to do tho.
