We brought a 1970s lakeside cottage back to life with a complete gut remodel, restoring the vintage cabin feel and layering with vintage and luxury finishes to create a boutique short term rental experience for guests to enjoy. We were going for a laid-back luxury vibe bringing in lots of our favorite vintage pieces collected over time. We used handmade tile, natural stone, and textiles in rich, earthy colors and organic textures. We let the outside in with new patio doors and windows throughout. While the main room was painted with a warm white, we dialed up the mood in the bedrooms and bathrooms with deep, earthy tones. 
If I stumbled upon this cool cottage on Airbnb I’d be booking it on the spot. Not your typical cottage vibes and definitely amping up the sophistication. Designed by Meet West Studio.

Inside an iconic landmark building built in 1908 in the Upper West Side, the home is combined by two adjacent apartments.  The goals were to reconfigure a thoughtful flow tracing the footprint of the new owner while carrying out the inherited architectural details seamlessly. The original architectural detail was carefully preserved and set the tone of the dwelling while connecting the design to the beaux arts roots of the building. Steeped in the rich history of New York, our focus was a transformative journey to reshape the historic home with a new narrative.
I am DYING over all of that original wood detail. I would have been inclined to have gone darker in the rest of the spaces so the white isn’t so contrasting but I appreciate the bold approach. Design: Bespoke Only; Photos: William Jess Laird.

A Georgian home with period features in London

Posted on Thu, 25 Apr 2024 by KiM

I had to share another Shoot Factory location home with you (this one is a Georgian 3 bedroom 1 bathroom in London) because this also tugs at my heartstrings for being so effortlessly casual and cool, with a basic vintage vibe and not being so “trendy” like the previous one. And I would have been completely sold upon walking through the front door, turning around and seeing that yellow painted landscape. Sooooo pretty!

The Sauvie Island River House project by Jessica Helgerson Interior Design saw a comprehensive overhaul of a house’s interior and exterior slated initially for demolition. Dating back to the 1970s and having undergone poorly executed remodels over time, the core structure held promise in the eyes of the design team. Their approach focused on reimagining the flow within the house to achieve simplicity and clarity. The long great room was partitioned into distinct kitchen and living areas, cleverly connected by a two-sided fireplace clad in earthy glazed brick. Responding to the clients’ request for warmth and lively hues, the walls were adorned with douglas fir panelling, paint and wallpaper in a recurring palette of terra cotta, mustard, teal and blue reminiscent of the house’s original era.

As much as I love colour and pattern, the soothing vibes of a totally neutral home like this Edwardian 6 bedroom house in rural Sussex also tugs at my heartstrings. I also thought I was completely over the lime washed walls craze but it’s soooo perfect in this home these folks get a pass. Available as a location home via Shoot Factory.
