Yes yes it’s a fabulous kitchen with beautiful stone but it’s the mudroom come landing strip next door that I love the most. Look at the mail slots! Ah snail mail you may be dying out but some designers still appreciate you. Garden District Kitchen by New Orleans-based Logan Killen Interiors.

Highland minimalism

Posted on Wed, 16 Aug 2023 by midcenturyjo

“Highland House is a contemporary, new-build holiday home in the Highlands of Scotland, designed with Tektonika Architects. The interior design roots the building in its setting, while also offering protection from it – this is a place of extreme weather and beautiful vistas of a loch.

Design details reflect the home’s use as a place to escape, unwind and be at one with nature. Minimalism meets cosiness in a material palette that includes chunky concrete with exposed aggregate, warm Douglas fir wood, handmade zelliges and flattish-toned encaustic tiles, and textiles that are comforting to touch. Everything is built on a palette of green, yellow, navy, pink and brown (the sludgy versions), allowing the rooms to bleed into the land they overlook.”

“The strokes of the subtly undulating lime-wash plaster dance across the angled walls. An original wood beam powdered by historic touches of dehydrated lime stands reminiscent of the old sea captain who built this place. Sanded back wide-planked floors strengthen the home’s rustic nature. And the plethora of windows, custom cabinetry details, massive center island, and vintage wood stove, this kitchen is a broody bold coast dream come true. We brought this kitchen back to the 21st century without losing one bit of its historic charm.”

Is it wrong to crush on a kitchen so badly that you want to tear yours out and start all over again? No? I didn’t think so. Coasters Chance Kitchen by Moore House Design.

It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. NYC Office by Corey Damen Jenkins.
