Home Feature: Neutral Beach House

It’s officially summer (and actually in any season) I tend to be attracted to brighter colors and patterns, but when I saw beach house in House Beautiful, I decided I might be a closet neutrals girl! This is just gorgeous inside and out.

So many good things about this room like how they balanced the fans with a large pendant, all the layers of lighting, different textures.

This door is so good.

This ceiling is gorgeous and despite its height feels so cozy thanks to the dark color. Love that they did this so your attention doesn’t go up to the ceiling, but rather out to the beautiful view.

What’s better than an outdoor shower? An outdoor shower for two!

Wouldn’t mind spending the summer at this place!

Friday Home Feature

I stumbled upon H2 Design + Build last weekend and couldn’t stop looking at some of their beautiful remodels.  I was dying over this modern farmhouse.

Love the simplicity of the exterior combined with such a lush landscape.

 One of the best things about the design in this house is the mix of modern and traditional furniture pieces.  It doesn’t get much better than a rustic wood table mixed with ghost chairs.  They’ve chose to add a little softness with some wingback upholstered chairs at the end.

 The lamp, wallpaper and the rug!  Perfect combination and I’m loving the deep blue couch.

 Another favorite kitchen with no upper cabinets along one wall.  Love the windows and simplicity.  I used the same hardware in my own kitchen.

Love the layout of this room and how the TV is not the focal point.  Great option for someone not wanting to mount it over the fireplace.

That door!  Love this architectural modern detail.

There’s something so calming about the all white farmhouse with lush, greenery and no pops of color.

Enjoy the weekend!

Coldplay, but Hot House

Sorry, ridiculous title I know. This baby getting up at 4:15 every morning for the past month is starting to drive me crazy and because i don’t go to bed at 9pm, I’m getting to the point where my sentences are barely making sense. Hence the ridiculous title because it’s either that or “Great House” which seemed lacking.

So Coldplay guitarist Jonny Buckland’s amazing loft in Greenwich Village was featured in last month’s Elle Decor. So so good.

This combo of carmely leather with blue velvet is a new favorite. Delicious.

Here’s another angle of the same room from the designer Ashe + Leandro’s website which shows the phenomenal windows–gives a completely different perspective to the design than the Elle Decor pics offered I think. And you can see the windows have a little mascara on them.

You don’t have to have lots of space in order to carve out a play area for your kids. And such a good idea to raise and inset a bookshelf.

I like how this house actually looks lived in…not like a show home that may be beautiful, but doesn’t have much personality.

Speechless. You had me at the doors and then, well, the light, the tub, the tiled arch…

The kids’ room is just as well designed

Amazing right? You can read about the apartment in more detail here. Have a great weekend!
