Victorian Beauty

This Victorian home in the English countryside is available for rent from Light Locations. Each room is an example of how to modernize these homes without losing their incredible charm. I love the old stoves in both kitchens and the light floors and walls. The living room feels cozy and warm in grey and is quite a contrast to the all white interior in the rest of the space. The outdoor patio is just the added touch to this lovely home.

The Intern Sets

I am a huge fan of Nancy Meyers movies and have It's Complicated and Something Gotta Give on repeat. Not only are they great movies but the sets are amazing! Such wonderful homes in all of Nancy's movies and any of them I could easily live in. Well her new movie, The Intern, does not disappoint with great actors and gorgeous sets (the kitchen!!). The office set is modern and cool and the main character, Jules, has such a fabulous brownstone that is featuring all of the latest home design trends. Take a look....






Sweet Renovation

I am in the process of looking for a new home and there is so much that appeals to me about this wonderful renovation. The home is small but so well designed. It has a nice flow that makes the space feel larger and the open stairway keeps it from feeling closed in. Small scale furnishings are perfect for the living area and the kitchen...well now that is sweet. I am so into this blue kitchen, subway tile combination and with brass handles it just takes it to the next level. Nice large farmhouse sink so complete the transformation......I think this may be what my next kitchen looks like!

Back on Trend: Butcher Block counters

I have been seeing a trend on Pinterest these past few months of butcher block counters. It seems this look is back and I find it looks really fresh again. When combined with the warm metals like brass it especially shines! It feels warm yet modern and is something to think about if you are renovating your kitchen. Here are a few great examples....

Pretty Plants

I am currently helping my daughter decorate her first apartment and plants seem to be very much on her mind. Since it is a very small apartment with little room for decor and expensive accessories, house plants seem like the perfect solution. They also feel surprisingly modern considering the fact that they seemed to be in style when I decorated my first apartment. Big or small they add some life and colour to any space...

Beautiful Brownstone

This is an amazing brownstone in Brooklyn New York that is simplicity and style at its best. The gorgeous chandeliers, simple furnishings and clean white walls are brought to life with pops of blue. The floors are kept a very natural pale colour which I am seeing more of these days and really loving. The entry with the moroccan tile introduces the blue as you walk in the house and gives a preview to the lovely home that awaits.

Moroccan Pom Pom Blankets

I love these Moroccan Pom Pom Blankets I am seeing everywhere! I want to order one and I found a great shop on Etsy that has some but….. I think I could also make one that would not be too far in look from what I see here. I learned to make pom pons for another project and they are surprisingly easy to make and lots of fun too! I will give it a try to show you the results!
