Colourful cottagecore in a Michigan home

Posted on Fri, 23 Feb 2024 by KiM

This new-build home in Harbor Springs, Michigan is about as pretty as can be, and very feminine. With a backdrop of mostly white shiplap, each space is accented with colour and pattern in a super fun and maximalist way. Cottagecore and vintage auntie vibes with a bit of coastal thrown into the mix. I’d be smiling ear to ear walking through this home.

This is the South Kensington apartment of couture and interior designer Tomasz Starzewski. I am overwhelmingly smitten and could look at these photos for hours trying to soak in all of those incredible layers. Why put one small table next to your sofa when you could put three? That is not meant to be sarcastic at all as I’d need one for my magazine, one for my cup of tea and one for the incense or candle I’d be burning. This folks, is maximalism at its finest.

House of Otto

Posted on Mon, 22 Jan 2024 by KiM

A range hood and headboard created from architectural salvage from France. A French sideboard converted into an island. A lacquered yellow butlers pantry. A curved plaster staircase. A speakeasy behind a hidden door with a massive bar. A gentleman’s office hidden behind a wall panel in the dressing room. Annie Brahler of Euro Trash is the absolute queen of drama and this home is dramatic like I’ve never seen. Her jaw-dropping use of European salvage is what really sets her apart from other designers and her lack of fear and always stepping outside the box is really inspiring. I’m obsessed.

Yond Cottage

Posted on Tue, 16 Jan 2024 by KiM

Perched on the shores of Lake Superior, Yond Cottage is an expression of everything our studio loves. Influenced by nature and designed to be a launchpoint for adventures, Yond Cottage was made for you. Yond Cottage is available for short term rental.
Located in scenic Schroeder, MN, this is cottage living with the coziest, coolest vibes. I love all the warm and muted colours and abundance of textures and materials. Designed by Yond Interiors. Architect: ACDC Studio. Photos: Erin Little.

They say it’s all about location, location, location but a cool house helps too. What I love about this gentle reworking of this waterfront cabin in Maine by Angie Hranowsky is just that … a gentle hand, a light touch. It’s rental which explains the lack of big ticket, rip it out and rebuild projects but I think it’s perfect. Mind you with a view like that I’d be happy to sit on a box 😛
