Now I know what’s inside the darkness. It’s a shell pink dressing room. Artist in Residence by Anna Standish.
Bringing my loft dreams to life in this dreamy industrial space created by Studio Bakker. In organic succession, Studio Bakker renovated, redesigned and styled this former archive attic in a historic Amsterdam canal house, transforming it into a loft style home consisting of five connected floors under two roofs. An enchanting route leads to an oasis of peace and quiet, decorated with earthy materials and corresponding color palette with natural light pouring in from various sides. A Wabi-sabi aesthetic provides the lens through which modern and vintage design pieces mix with a host of honest materials – including old and new woods, loam and granite, steel and aluminum, leather and linen. The styling subtly references the wealth of cultures housed beneath these roofs.

I’m having heart palpitations over the Guatemalan home of designer Rodman Primack. Colours and patterns and textures (and the tile!!!!!) within spacious rooms and incredible soaring ceilings make this home spectacular.

Old meets new in this bright, eclectic 100 year old home of designer Jonathan Steinitz and his husband located in Columbus, Ohio. This is what I love to see – people appreciating the history of a home and working hard to restore original features. Here they re-exposed some beautiful worn brick and original hardwood flooring. The white walls really accentuate these elements and some modern mixed with vintage furnishings really add personality.
Today’s second lake house is not only off the grid it’s off the scale for stylish, unplugged living. This weekend getaway is all about natural materials and soft muted tones. If it was mine I’d be living here more than just on weekends. New Buffalo house by Chicago-based Elizabeth Krueger Design.
