Here is another example of why I am such a fan of Reath Design‘s style. Frances Merrill took another Craftsman (this time a 1910 beach house) and brought home the funk! More fun wallpaper, tile, patterned fabric and vintage finds make this home soooo much fun and a total eye candy. If you ever thought about painting your old kitchen cabinets yellow, this should sell you on the idea.

I love Los Angeles-based interior design firm Reath Design‘s ability to maintain a lot of the history of a home whilst adding some funk and modernizing to keep things current. This Craftsman in Berkeley, California epitomizes this. Patterns and textures are abundant here with some beautiful wallpaper, fabrics and rugs. All of the beautiful moldings are left natural, and in this case I think they really should be. LOVE!

Diana Stark is an architect and interior designer from Israel and this is her apartment in Netanya she shares with her husband and 3 year old daughter. She kindly sent over these photos for us to share with you. The space used to be several small rooms with an enclosed kitchen but she brilliantly came up with a more open-concept and kept it very modern and neutral so she could add interest in the details – a bit of bold (and not so bold) wallpaper, some really gorgeous tile laid vertically (love that!) and some glass elements. It’s a stunning mix of hard and soft, modern and vintage. (Photos: Hagar Doppelt)
I love lots of textures and patterns in a home, when done really well. This home designed by Boston-based designer Lindsay Bentis of Thread Art and Design is a lesson in how to add lots of patterns via wallpaper, tile, rugs and pillows and not overdo it. The vibrancy and energy here is really a feast for the eyes. There is just so much to look at!

LOVE LOVE LOVE these wallpapers!!! Laura Jo Wegman of Metolius made these wallpapers in her San Francisco studio from her own hand-painted artwork and then has them printed in small-batches using eco-friendly paints and papers. Also, the coolest part is that they are customizable so you can pick your background and your pattern colour (her site shows you what your selections looks like). So fantastic!
