I have an unhealthy love of avant-garde clothing, most notably from 2 designers, one of them being Barbara Í Gongini (the other is Rick Owens). One day I discovered Femina had done a story on Barbara's home in Copenhagen and I was pleased to see her minimalist home was as stylish as her clothing. I love the simplicity of it, the contrast of black and white and the subtle textures and patterns.
I spotted this home on the website of Atlanta Homes & Lifestyle magazine and had to share because cottage season has begun and this cottage (while not your average "cottage") is about as gorgeous as they come. This 1930's, 3,000 sq ft Nantucket style home is the cutest thing on the outside and full of contrasting goodness on the inside. Shiplap siding in white is fresh and lends to the Americana feel and looks incredible with the contrasting dark stained hardwood floors. The dining room I swear was plucked from one of my dreams I have had for the past 20 years. (Interior design: homeowner Meg Harrington of Huff Harrington Home. Architect: Linda MacArthur Architect.

When modern mixes with classical design, and black, white, brass and marble comes together to create the most incredible kitchen. That antique painting is ideal in this space and makes the brass details pop. I could not love this kitchen more. Except if it were mine. A Jason Arnold project fit for a queen.

"Sleek and minimal with a limited colour palette" could be design-speak for "hard and lifeless" but not with this NY apartment by 1100 Architect. Accents of wood and jute with layering of textures create a warm, modern home. Anyone else go weak at the knees for walls of steel and glass windows?
