Modern farmhouse cottage

Posted on Mon, 30 Mar 2020 by KiM

I love a mix of eras. This farmhouse cottage was given a dash of modern and I love the contrasting styles. By Kelly and Co. Design, this home includes some beautiful art, earth tones throughout and lots of really textured fabrics, particularly linens, that make this casual and cozy. 

Connection with nature

Posted on Sun, 29 Mar 2020 by KiM

Connecting with nature out in the country, with nothing but fields and trees and wildlife as far as the eye can see is just what I could use right about now while stuck at home. How peaceful living here must be, especially at a time like this. This is the home of interior stylist Adeline Maillet and her family, in Lyon, France design by architects Stéphanie and Damien Gallet. Via The Socialite Family.

Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 21 Mar 2020 by midcenturyjo

A lot of us are compelled to stay home in these dangerous times. Others have no choice but to go out into the big, bad world to help others or keep the wheels turning. I can’t use my usual spiel about being dragged into work on a weekend yada, yada, yada. I’ll just share this stylish workplace instead. Coppin Street Studio by Pitch AD. Stay safe.

Santa Monica Proper Hotel

Posted on Sun, 15 Mar 2020 by KiM

Kelly Wearstler is a force to be reckoned with, and one of her latest projects, the Santa Monica Proper hotel, is really something else. I would looooooove to tour this in person. It is a bit subdued in colours then she normally chooses but of course, she nailed it. The landmark building is this beautiful Spanish colonial revival style, built in the late 1920s. The hotel was thoughtfully restored and refreshed, its original rich materiality and architectural moorish details served as inspiration for the overall design. The contemporary, modern building is more monolithic in nature and a great canvas for layering with textures – natural materials, stone wood, plaster. The hotel’s palette is nature-inspired and earthy, raw materials and organic textures, art and landscape bring a rich sensory feeling in to the hotel. Wearstler intentionally worked with local artists and artisans to bring a true localized experience within the spaces.
