Seward Park

I had to share another home filled with deep, warm colours, texture and patterns that I am absolutely in love with, by the inimitable Heidi Callier. The deep salmon colour in the living and dining rooms reminds me of my Red Earth (F&B) dining room. I love earthy terracotta/salmon/red colours that are just so yummy! And hello mustard yellow laundry! Heidi never disappoints.

Like this gorgeous house in Orient Village, North Fork, NY designed by Elizabeth Cooper.

Pinch me. I must be dreaming. Do people really live with views like this? In houses like this? Sun and sand and surf and easy, stylish living. Perfect. Stinson Beach Home by Lauren Nelson Design.

Oversaturated colours, black lacquered doors and windows, contrasts between matt and shiny, raw and refined plus an eclectic mix of furniture breathe new life into the historic rooms.
