A traditional green, marble and brass kitchen 

I found this deVOL kitchen the other day on JJ Locations and I was completely shocked to discover how much I really REALLY love it. It could be because living in a traditional home for a couple of years now is rubbing off on me, or the fact that my kitchen can barely fit 2 people standing in it so anything roomy makes me envious. This kitchen is situated in a 1846 Victorian in London, and while I would consider changing a couple of things (that sofa in the corner isn't working - I love the idea of a settee just not that one, the table is missing a bench and I would paint out the inside of that hutch black and fill it with white dishes), this is the best take on a traditional kitchen I think I have ever seen. I don't even really like green and I love this. Crazy!

Glen Iris House

This post is for the folks who have commented lately that we've been too many posting been-there-done-that, white houses lately. This house has accents of turquoise/mint green in almost every room and I absolutely love it. Fresh and fun and paired with some red and black it is HOT. Thank you Nest Architects for showing us how to do colour.

Ilaria Miani

Taking an old structure and, restoring the beautiful original details while giving it an eccentric modern vibe in the decor is something I gravitate towards and I am doing with my own home. Rome based interior designer Ilaria Miani takes this to another level with her spaces. Miani’s passion for restoring abandoned farmhouses, palaces and villages is inspired first and foremost by the building itself. A bit of colored plaster still holding onto a crumbling wall; a stone niche carved by ancient hands; or the sagging massive wooden beams that once supported an existence that has long since faded are her starting points. Tiles are handcrafted of clay and baked in nearby kilns; tables and beds are forged with the same hammers that have been used for generations; and chairs carved by carpenters using ancient tools. The landscape too, informs and inspires. Whether it is the rolling hills of Tuscany, the gentle waters of a Venetian canal or the cobbled streets of Rome, Miani’s treatments speak the same language, evoking and reinterpreting a timeless language. While Miani’s creations are rooted in the past, they are very much a thing of the present. Her own designs – modern, sleek and colorful – encompass every detail of her projects. From the chairs and the lamps to the forks and the linens, the effortless casual sophistication that has become her trademark, creates a uniquely cohesive whole.

Simply lovely

The serenely beautiful, plant filled house shared by Kim on Sunday (here ... swoon) belongs to stylist and art director Liza Giles and her architect husband. It's easy to see that she worked for Designers Guild for many years. That lovely green, the freshness, the botanicals. I couldn't help myself. I had to share a little more of her work with Tricia Guild. Simply lovely.

For the love of plants...and anything green

Happy Easter everyone! This holiday weekend for some of us signifies spring and welcoming warmer weather and some green outside. I found this location home on JJ Locations and thought this was the perfect time to share it. Apparently someone loves plants even more than I do. This home is filled with them and it is absolutely beautiful with tons of artwork and accents of green to bring it all together into a cohesive spring-y vibe. I adore every bit of this Victorian house - it gives off so much positive energy. I think I'll move into the kitchen.
