“When design minded individuals connect in the way we did with our Rotterdam Terrace client, magic happens.”
From the six-meter windows and pooling linen curtains to the oak fronted kitchen with its green and caramel coloured stone countertops. From the white painted, exposed rough brick to the expanse of smooth concrete floors. Brass details, vintage leather, filmy track screening of windows and wardrobes. Pared back with a wabi sabi meets modern vibe. Rotterdam Terrace by Dutch firm Avenue Design Studio.
Old versus new. American desert and French Provincial. Rustic stone juxtaposed with smooth plaster and tiles. Inside reaches out through walls of steel and glass and climbing through it all is a sinuous staircase of wood and iron. Rough luxe versus sophisticated modern living. At its heart this rambling stone edifice is first and foremost a gathering place for family and friends. Private residence #4 at Silverleaf Scottsdale, Arizona OZ Architects.
I love a mix of eras. This farmhouse cottage was given a dash of modern and I love the contrasting styles. By Kelly and Co. Design, this home includes some beautiful art, earth tones throughout and lots of really textured fabrics, particularly linens, that make this casual and cozy.
Connecting with nature out in the country, with nothing but fields and trees and wildlife as far as the eye can see is just what I could use right about now while stuck at home. How peaceful living here must be, especially at a time like this. This is the home of interior stylist Adeline Maillet and her family, in Lyon, France design by architects Stéphanie and Damien Gallet. Via The Socialite Family.
