Here is another example of why I am such a fan of Reath Design‘s style. Frances Merrill took another Craftsman (this time a 1910 beach house) and brought home the funk! More fun wallpaper, tile, patterned fabric and vintage finds make this home soooo much fun and a total eye candy. If you ever thought about painting your old kitchen cabinets yellow, this should sell you on the idea.

I would give anything to take a vacation right now. And I think I have found the perfect spot! Los Enamorados is located in northern Ibiza, in the harbour of the little seaside town of Portinatx. This little paradise hotel consists of 9 rooms, a restaurant, beach bar and little shop (which includes some vintage finds). The decor is colourful, and rustic and sooo inviting. Oh how I would love to spend a week here!

I’m always a fan of style mixin’, and in this apartment in Gdańsk, Poland it starts with some some classic moldings, chevron hardwood floor, a clawfoot bathtub and some exposed brick. This is all modernized in bright white with added built-ins, mirrored walls (storage perhaps?), contemporary furnishings and lighting and some funky tile work. A very dynamic and stunning space designed by Anna Maria Sokołowska. (Photos: Fotomohito)
Diana Stark is an architect and interior designer from Israel and this is her apartment in Netanya she shares with her husband and 3 year old daughter. She kindly sent over these photos for us to share with you. The space used to be several small rooms with an enclosed kitchen but she brilliantly came up with a more open-concept and kept it very modern and neutral so she could add interest in the details – a bit of bold (and not so bold) wallpaper, some really gorgeous tile laid vertically (love that!) and some glass elements. It’s a stunning mix of hard and soft, modern and vintage. (Photos: Hagar Doppelt)
I love lots of textures and patterns in a home, when done really well. This home designed by Boston-based designer Lindsay Bentis of Thread Art and Design is a lesson in how to add lots of patterns via wallpaper, tile, rugs and pillows and not overdo it. The vibrancy and energy here is really a feast for the eyes. There is just so much to look at!
