Such a well considered balance. All chocolate box thatched cottage on the outside. All modern living expectations on the inside. Icing on the cake? More than enough historical character internally preserved to keep you smiling sweetly. Gloucestershire Cottage by Sarah Delaney Design.
I spotted this home on Residence Magazine and immediately fell in love. The vintage, feminine, time-worn vibe of this home is the perfect dose of Sunday eye candy. Let this be a reminder to always look at the back of canvas paintings. You never know what you might find.
TGIF! Time to getaway from the rat race. Perhaps an island escape. Time to day dream about owning a home like this Nantucket beauty by San Francisco based interior designer Katie Martinez. Her work is relaxed, classic, natural. No fuss, no cliché just summer house simplicity and style.

Kim and I get to share some of the most inspirational homes from around the world but the best homes of all are our readers’ homes. I loved it when long time follower Jagoda Owczarek from Gdańsk, Poland sent us photos of the home she shares with her husband, 3 children and cat. Design has always been her passion and now having completed her studies she has opened her own business O!studio. If her stylish home is anything to go by then she will have nothing but success.
We don’t typically post renderings but when it’s this fabulous I’m making an exception. Utkan Gunerkan is an Istanbul-born architect based in Milan, Italy, and this bathroom and kitchen are for projects in Puerto Vallarta, my favourite place on earth. They are SO much fun and graphic and creative. If I could make these come true in my home I’d die. And I think it was meant to be seeing as I just replaced my dining room chandelier with one that is turquoise, a colour I never use.
