When vintage meets bohemian meets traditional in a cabin-like, autumn setting. This 3800 sq ft home in Marin County (San Francisco Bay area) was renovated and expanded by G.P. Schafer Architect, who retained the original 1870’s cabin elements. It is so inviting and full of charm. I could not love this more. Interior design by Rita Konig.
Simple style, rustic romance. Who else would like to run away with me to Spain’s Balearic islands, to tiny Formentera and ignore the worries of the world in this white washed stone cottage reimagined by Francesca Oggioni?
Loving the cabin-in-the-woods, hunting lodge, boys-only-club vibes in this home. This former home of hám interiors Co-Founder Tom Cox in Barnes reflects his character and talent for design at every turn. The colour palette and his eclectic private collection of artwork and curiosities give a nod to his passion for the great outdoors, as well as his tendency for the unexpected. This masculine scheme pairs pops of colour with a refined elegance, and reveals our expertise in creative spatial planning. The rear extension transforms the space, while the bespoke kitchen designed and built by our team is finished beautifully with meticulously sourced reclaimed items such as the sink, wall lights and stag water spout.
It’s not for everyone I will give you that. Some of you will be reaching for a paintbrush or even a contractor to rip it all out but there is a simple, rustic beauty in these rooms that really appeals to me. I love the honesty, the history, the patina of each space. As for that little kitchen … swoon! And it’s for sale (in London at London prices). The Coach House via The Modern House.
I had to share another spot-on project (located in Oxfordshire, England) by the incredible talented firm of hám interiors. From a 1950s property with limited architectural character, we undertook this full design, build and interior design project to create a modern country home. Open-plan living spaces with pitched ceilings are given warmth with an eclectic collection of antiques and specially commissioned large-scale artworks, while reclaimed sinks and fireplaces were sourced on buying trips to Belgium. Our signature shiplap boarded ceilings, textural flooring, bold pops of colour and handcrafted furniture give this country home an established elegance.
