TGIF friends!!! Despite it being only a 3-day work week for me it felt like 12 and I am ready for a bit of relaxation, going back to sleep after the 4:30 am feeding of the herd, and some gardening. And to get this party started, here is a beautiful, bright home in East London with lots of white, a really cool kitchen (assuming a large chunk of it is behind the white doors), and some eclectic vintage furniture and lighting. Available as a location home through 1st Option Locations.
Lucyna Kołodziejska, the lovely interior designer from Gdańsk, Poland whose work we have featured for years, has kindly sent over some photos from one of her latest projects. This one is an apartment in Sopot, a resort city on the Baltic sea in northern Poland. As always Lucyna has done a fabulous job with this space, giving it an ethnic feel while keeping it modern and classy. I adore that tile inset into the floor in the kitchen and hallway and the mural behind the bed.
Take me away to a life in the Caribbean. To a holiday house that puts a smile on my face. Holiday house? Hell no I’d want to live there all year round. I’m loving this home on the Abacos in The Bahamas by Denton House Design Studio. Calm waters, warm breezes and water views forever and a fabulous fun house.
“Bold colored fabrics and finishes used in this island styled Baker’s Bay vacation home in the Bahamas made the perfect place to getaway. With deep stained wood floors and beach inspired prints, the design echoes the lush landscape outside. Our clients loved bright and bold so we really went for it in their space. Using white as a backdrop to all the color was the key to keeping this sophisticated, yet fun.”
Ah the stuff of dreams. An apartment in the Latin quarter with a view. Not just any view but large windows filled with the Panthéon in all its perfection. Double height living room or should I say salone or even more so library. Then there is the art, the clean lines of the furniture, the sweeping staircase, a simple yet stylish modern kitchen and did I mention those windows and the access to a small balcony? Yes it is the stuff of Parisian dreams. “Panthéon” by Hélène Van Marcke.
I will admit that white scares me. I very rarely wear anything white and I never buy white items for my home. This home designed by Jennifer Wagner Schmidt is refined, casually elegant and soothing and ALL IN WHITE! It is making me rethink my fear of white. Now if you could cover everything in plastic and it still look this good I would be sold. 😉
