Happy midcentury

I have a fantastic makeover to share with you today sent in by the folks at Indiana-based Susan Yeley Interiors. Let me start right off the bat with some before photos. From totally boring.....

...to totally awesome with a midcentury vibe!! Here's the scoop: This small midcentury home south of campus has great bones but lacked vibrancy—a je ne sais quoi that the clients were searching to savoir once and for all. SYI worked with them to nail down a design direction and furniture plan, and they decided to invest in the big-impact items first: built-ins and lighting and a fresh paint job that included a beautiful deep blue-green line around the windows. The vintage rug was an Etsy score at an awesome price, but only after the client spent months scouring options and sources online that matched the vision and dimensions of the plan. A good year later, the West Elm sofa went on sale, so the client took advantage; some time after that, they painted the kitchen, created the drop zone / bench area, and rounded out the room with occasional tables and accessories.

House of Folding Planes

I've always had a thing for cacti. A pot or two about the house has been more than satisfactory ... until now. Now I want  a garden just like this by Phoenix, Arizona based landscape architects Colwell Shelor. It may necessitate a move to an arid climate but I can't see that being a problem.

An industrial loft in Salt Lake City

Serious loft love happening with this post right now. Located in the Tire Town building in Salt Lake City (built in 1925 to house the Firestone Tire & Rubber Company), the current owners wanted to bring this loft back to its industrial roots and enlisted City Home Collective for the job. There is so much to love about this space - the cherry-finished kitchen cabinets set against a brick wall, the gothic industrial master bathroom, the double-sided fireplace and of course, the fabulous lighting in the bathroom and bedroom.

Hicks Street carriage house

Back in June '14 Jo featured the really beautiful Hicks Street townhouse by New York firm Kevin Dakan Architect. I thought today I would share the Hicks Street carriage house. This totally changes my perspective on what a carriage house is. This ain't no outbuilding! WHOA! The painted brick, exposed ceiling beams, skylight, and ah mah gawd the kitchen!! What a dream home! (Speaking of dream homes, I'm trying to convert mine into something I can maybe call a dream one day - check out my next post in a few hours. Slowly but surely I'm filling it with things I love.)
