I often wish I had enough will power to live minimally. This location home in the UK is a dream. It’s a bit sad to see what must have been alot of really gorgeous wood painted but WOW – all this white is spectacular. I wish I could live with all those white painted floors too but I’ve learned the hard way that they aren’t practical in my home. I’d settle for just the kitchen – TO DIE FOR!!! Via 1st Option.
Layers of colour and pattern are expertly combined with texture and styles. Modern meets vintage and traditional. Floral flirts with geometric and colours are at one time clean and cool and at another warm and earthy. Silk sits with sisal and wool washes across vintage vinyl. Pillows are plumped with down and strewn here and there are piles of books and simple floral arrangements. Casually elegance imbued with comfort. Sink into a sofa and relax. Beautiful homes by Boston based Hudson Interiors.
A big thanks to Anastasia of Faiella Design for sending us photos of her interior design work. Based in San Francisco, Anastasia’s philosophy is simple: “Living in beauty is loving the home you live in”. Her contemporary style is timeless and elegant, with muted colours that draw you in and envelops you in warmth and tranquility.
The last couple of photos are from Dining By Design San Francisco 2012 – Anastasia’s collaboration with architect Andre Rothblatt – her hubby (whom it turns out I featured on the blog a while back). 🙂
For those who have lamented in comments recently of the propensity of Australians to tack on the equivalent of a law firm’s modern waiting room to the back of an historic home here is a little traditional stalking. All be it sleek and white and cool. Woollahra, Sydney. Link here while it lasts.
Allison Caccoma, an interior designer based in San Francisco, is about colour, pattern and texture in whimsical arrangements that create inviting spaces that are classic yet contemporary, luxurious yet liveable. So pretty – I could stare at the photo above all day…
