Inspired Space, Beautiful Blog

I am in love with the gorgeous blog of stylist/photographer Line Kay of Vintagepiken. Her home is styled to perfection and her photographs are so beautiful! Really I could look at her blog over and over. It is peaceful and thoughtful, creative and inspired..just like her home. You must go and look at her photos not only of her home but of the many wonderful ways she styles food, flowers.....and just about everything else with the utmost taste and sophistication.

Industrial Style Home

This is the LA home of the restaurateur Joan McNamara. Really so fabulous and chic...love the black kitchen, vintage, rustic touches throughout and the fabulous industrial space. I could easily live in a loft like this no problem!

Now, it's hard not to love a rustic style kitchen. These have all the best elements of rustic style......wood, brick, rustic lighting, vintage accessories and even more. I love the wood on the ceiling in the first photo! Looks amazing with the subway tile don't you think?

Have a great weekend!

Sag Harbor Home

Love this home from Lonny Magazine that is pretty much a beach house dream. All light and airy with plenty of white up to the beams and down to the floor. Rustic touches with a little nautical add the cottage feel to this Sag Harbour hideaway. The back of the house with the pool really does it for me...great spot to spend a weekend.

Have a lovely weekend!!

Industrial Chic

Love this Industrial Chic home of a designer couple from Dallas. Rue Magazine brings us on a tour of this amazing home that has even a bit of Glam thrown in to take off the harder edge of the industrial look. The bedroom is so good the gold accents against the white...so good! Touches of black throughout to ground the space mix with wood and concrete. Super gallery wall with fun accessories that keep it new and interesting...

Have a good weekend!

Beach House Beauty

Such a cute beach house from Domino Magazine! Designed by Anna Burke, it has just the right amount of vintage, rustic charm mixed with a cool Palm Beach vibe. Of course the all white palette with accents of blue and white is one of my all time favourites, so this strikes a perfect note in my books. Love the high ceilings in the home and especially in the kitchen area....with these amazing lamps over open shelves it does not get any better!

Domino does it again for me! Always one of my go to magazines for inspiration!

Cabin Decor

This little California cabin is all vintage and a cute little hideaway for two. This couple had to be creative in their redo of the house as it is only a rental.  Nice neutral tones with touches of yellow give a good accent for the wood panel walls. A cute little wire basket is perfect for the bar and a minimalist kitchen is brightened up with colourful accessories. Feels like the perfect rustic cabin decor to me!

Inspiration in White: Painted Furniture

I love painted furniture and I have many pieces in my home. Vintage furniture painted in a rustic way with chalk paint or milk paint are my favourites. I like how over time the lightly sanded parts become more pronounced and the intentional wear and tear sanded into the piece becomes real. I have done some of the painting myself and have had a few pieces done for me.
Of course the Queen of painted furniture is Miss Mustard Seed's, Marion Parsons. She is so talented and always does an amazing job on the pieces she hunts down at tag sales and flea markets. She has a great number of tutorials so head on over if you are considering doing a little DIY on a piece you have found or something you have at home. You can even buy her Milk Paint line to help you along.

Stunning Lake Retreat

Oh this is one of those homes where I need to go through each picture to check every detail! Love, love, love....The mix of rustic yet completely elegant style is something I adore and yet it is not so easy to do well in a home. This is the home of artist Dawn Raulet Hall that I found in Atlanta Homes and you can see that she has an artists eye for detail...check out the living room! An antique red trimmed love-seat mixed with raw stump tables, a twig rocking chair and a beautiful sculpture...who would have thought it could look this good?

The log canopy bed is just gorgeous and what about the bunk room!! Oh this house is very swoon worthy for sure....

Good Book: Modern Rustic

I have done posts before about how much I love Rustic style so when I saw this book by Emily Henson at Anthropology I jumped at it. Emily is a stylist and author living in London and she has a really good feeling and understanding of this style. Rough wood, stone, muted colours and all natural materials are the essence of the rustic style and pairing them with a modern take on furnishings and accessories is really the perfect combination. Emily says, "Despite its use of recylced materials and objects, this is not a typical vintage look; it is more original than that. Modern Rustic incorporates the latest interior design know-hows and exciting, contemporary materials, and brings rusticity with all its honest, unpretentious appeal, beautifully up to date" I think this statement sums up her book perfectly!
