A not-so-cottage-y cottage

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.

A rustic home with contemporary style

I have featured projects by Vancouver's Fox Design Studio in the past (here, here and here) and I continue to marvel at their talents at creating contemporary, eye-catching, spaces with incredible attention to detail. Each room in this home shares a similar colour palette of greys and white with touches of black and then pops of blue. It's a soothing, relaxing vibe that flows throughout this beautiful, rustic home. I want those sheep statues on my porch too!

Working on a Saturday

It's on my bucket list to visit if I ever get to New York but can you imagine if this was your workplace? I'd never want to go home. I'd work for free. A florist shop makes me happy even if it's just a blank room and some buckets of flowers but this, oh this is so much more. Saipua, design by Tacklebox Architecture

Industrial chic

When I spotted this home on Shoot Factory I thought I had died and gone to heaven. Industrial chic style with beautiful architectural details with white painted exposed brick and wood panelling and moldings in every nook and cranny. Paint some of it black and I am having heart palpitations. Add a marble countertop and I can hardly breathe. (Blakes London seems to have had something to do with this).

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.
