I’ve been following artist & designer Josh Young on Instagram for some time now and realized we haven’t featured him on the blog – until now.

The bucolic surrounds and a shingle clad farmhouse silhouette set the stage for this modern take on a holiday shack but don’t be fooled. For all its relaxed simplicity this getaway on Shelter Island is a sophisticated and chic family home. By Brooklyn-based Workstead.
“Good design is in the layers of detail and the intention behind those details. It evolves. I love walking into a home, time and time again, to discover something new — a story yet to be told.”
Rustic yet sophisticated, beautifully curated with a minimalist earthy colour palette it is texture that is the star. Rough stone, smooth to the touch paster, weathered wood and the slub of natural fibres. Shady Canyon Villa in Laguna Beach by Intimate Living Interiors.

Let’s run away to this rural idyll. A meandering of rooms, a clash of wallpaper and a Togo sofa hiding from the more traditional furnishings. I’m in love. A private house in Normandie by Tristan Auer.
