A second helping of Heather A Wilson 

There are things that sing to me. Things that sing a siren's song. Beautiful houses call to me all the time. That's why I blog. The notes ring in my ears and I'm bewitched. They don't have to be big and pretentious houses. More often than not they are simple homes. Simple and beautiful. And recently the siren's melody is about old scrubbed timbers and lime washed floors, board on the walls and high ceilings, family kitchens and porches for sitting, house plants and comfy old furniture. There is only one conclusion with this house. Architect Heather A Wilson must be a siren.

Miethe+Quehl

Envy is a deadly sin. I know because I sin all the time. Better add greed and gluttony. I could sit here and overindulge in this wonderful apartment brought to life by Potsdam based architectural studio Miethe+Quehl. With great features to build on the architects have been refined in their touch. The historical sits comfortably with the slick and contemporary. The floors warm my greedy little heart, the light makes my eyes sting with tears. The sheer beauty of its deco bones makes me choke and splutter on my avarice. I am a bad girl. I deserve to be punished ... and you can punish me ... after I lick the computer screen a bit more.

Summer sublime

The porch is perfect, the pool area splendid. The kitchen is to die for. While away the summer days in a purpose built little white cottage. It's like being on vacation all year round. This Charleston home has me all hot and bothered. Thank goodness for the pool and the porch! The architect is Heather A Wilson with interior design by Jen Langston.

Perfectly imperfect

Slick, high end furnishings sit perfectly within an imperfect shell, heightening the luxe through contrast with the rough. But the old room holds firm with its faded grandeur. Is the beauty in the new or in the old or the way they interact? By Brazilian design studio Gisele Taranto Arquitetura.

Emotion vs reason

I've got an encore of Italian architecture and interior design firm UdA (previous project featured yesterday). It's a penthouse in UdA's typical modern aesthetic, with a bit of wood accents to add some warmth. Funky lighting and furnishings, a streamlined kitchen, and WOW how I love the bedroom photo! Add in a live plant wall on the massive outdoor patio and I could DEFINITIVELY live here!
