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)
🙂 I am almost done the living room and I'm so stoked so far with the result. It's sooooooooooo much better. SO. MUCH. BETTER. (sneak peek on IG)
The apartment is crazy cute!
The farmhouse is amazing – almost flawless curation. The apartment? hmm. The redo doesn't go far enough for me. If it had gone high-gloss, maybe thrown in a few curves or even nodded to the original textures — but no. Just basic drywall. The interior windows are interesting, although I would have framed everything off in black steel. (Then Santa would bring me a pony…) 🙂

Hahaha, you're welcome!
(We're looking forward like crazy to the results! Your talent + that new house? Marvellous.)
