And just when you think it can’t get any better…the magic egg farmhouse has a GUESTHOUSE!!!
A little spot just over a little hill from the Magic Egg farmhouse. The guest house was filled with spiders and piles (and piles) of books when we got there, but it was easy to see the promise of this space. We let the original floors and wood beams steer the style, and kept things simple and light. Textured linens, white plaster, brass accents, some hanging sage from the garden, and of course, some built in bunk beds. It’s the perfect sized weekend getaway. Jersey Ice Cream Co. does it again.
If you asked me what type of home I would want to live in for the rest of my life if I had to choose one, this is my answer. This home and everything in it. A late-18th-century farmhouse tucked away in 167 acres of fields and forest, complete with a barn, pool, pond, and tennis court. Over its many years the house has seen plenty of renovations and, we can only imagine, has lived just as many lives. Its most recent iteration featured a rainbow’s array of wall colors and strange furniture choices. It was immediately clear that all that needed to go, and that we’d basically need to start from scratch, while keeping just a few old details like the wide-plank floors and rich chestnut paneling. Such a relaxing, serene environment filled with all the wonderful textures and neutral tones you would expect in your dream farmhouse. By Jersey Ice Cream Co. (Previous feature here)
It’s no surprise that French architect Camille Hermand is one of our favourites. Her latest project sees her take on a family home in a western suburb of Paris. No suburban hohum here though. Her signature use of black and white is enriched with deep accents of blue and a deliciously tart citron yellow while a striking concrete staircase leads you up through the floors. Talk about Parisian chic in the ‘burbs!
I thought I would share some modern minimalism to ease you into the work week (for those who aren’t on summer vacation – those are the people I am hating right now). Leipzig, Germany based creatives Studio Oink is a favourite of mine for calm, beautifully styled spaces with just about the bare minimum. So peaceful. (Previous feature here)
