Entries in trim (8)
This Amsterdam home blows my mind. If I walked in someone would need to hold me up because I would probably drop to the floor. Seriously though, the architecture, the bold colours, the herringbone hardwood floor, the checkerboard marble tile, those freaking windows (!!!)...then throw in some cool mid-century furniture and I totally become weak in the knees. Again by interior designer Roelfien Vos.
One of the blog posts I had done while I was down south was about architecture firm Creative Renovations. It seems some of the photos I had featured of a sparse townhome in Red Hook, Brooklyn, have since been transformed into an eclectic and stunning home. Creative Renovations worked on this project with architect Rafe Churchill and his wife, interior designer Heide Hendricks. The 19th century six-family tenement was a diamond in the rough, and when purchased had already been almost entirely gutted.
Lacking any character, it was repurposed into a single family home with a first floor apartment. Rafe and Heidi went a traditional route with the decor, with some loft-like qualities and a maritime theme (it is a few blocks from the waterfront). At first I was a bit put off by the somewhat odd colourful trim detail....
But with the furnishings in place - an eclectic blend of traditional and mid-century, it makes complete sense. It was an inexpensive way to add an architectural feature and make it pop. Just the right amount of quirkiness. (Photos: John Gruen)
I adore this laundry room - particularly the sink set-up and the light fixture. *drool*
Afriad to go with dark walls? Why not give it a try on the trim instead? Talk about a bold, graphic statement!
Kitchen island waterfall action.
This wallpaper is beautiful. Would be amazing with navy glossy trim. Hex tile floor is a bonus.
