Entries in small (122)
A house and a tiny apartment. Both perfectly imperfect. Yes there are gaps and cracks. White paint unites disparate surfaces and eras. Art draws the eye. Style and personality and something I can't put my finger on. The frisson of wabi sabi? One thing I do know. There are not enough photos! I need to see more. The first house is in Avalon with the link here. The second is a bijou home in Potts Point. Who needs a sofa when friends can gather round your table. Link here while it lasts.
I am up to my eyeballs in paint as I work on transforming my living room, and I would just like to say thank you to all those who told me to lose the mahogany trim. While I am still not sure about my entry way (where the majority of the wood work is) I am really happy to see the mahogany gone in the living room. I still have alot of work to do but photos to come ASAP. During a short break yesterday while working on the trim, I came across these 2 residences that I fell in love with. The first is a beautiful old farm in Denmark that has been totally renovated and filled with flea market finds. It has a really lovely neutral colour palette. (Via Femina) The other is a small apartment in Barcelona that used to be a series of dark, cramped rooms. Sergi Pons Architects created an open floor plan and inserted a white cube in the centre to house the kitchen and bathroom. Such stunning original stone walls and ceramic tile ceiling, and the result is a successful marriage of modern and rustic. (Via Living)
