Manic Monday

Hello. I hope you're having a great start to your week and that the pictures you are about to see make it even better! Monday is the day I share the images that made me swoon over the previous week. Let's get to it!

First, interiors.

This dining room/reading room by Betsy Brown is gorgeous. It mixes a lot of my favorite elements - wicker/rattan, large art work and books! I had not been following betsybrowninc on Instagram until last week when I stumbled across an image of her work. I could post everything in her feed because it is all so beautiful. Here is the start of what I am sure will become a very regular source of inspiration:

I love the furniture and how it is placed, the layered rugs, and wallpaper in this hallway by Oliva Outred.

I would love to be working at this desk by Ariel Okin.

I love these blue and white club chairs - shocker! Design by Kimberly Tosi of Gather Home Design.

Everything about this room is perfection (to me) designed by Serena Williams-Ellis.

Sometimes asymmetrical really works. I love how JDK Interiors placed this bed to the left of the window rather than centered underneath it. The wallpaper doesn't hurt either!

More wallpaper love for Schumacher in a design by Grapevine Interiors.

Look how shiny this black door is, it took me a second to realize it was the door to the bathroom. I love, love, love high gloss paint. Design by Paloma Contreras.

Interior glass doors and windows are so charming, I especially like them in dark paint. This is from a Humphrey Munson kitchen.

More dark paint. This mudroom at the McGee Home is a favorite. I think I save every picture of it from the inside and outside. I particularly love the black marble countertop with the black cabinetry.

Moving to the exterior now where mixed materials get me every time....

This is Walnut Farm in Canada. The stone and cedar shake is so inviting.

The touches of metal roof, with the contrasting paint colors for the siding and the brick, the dark windows, and then the wood door - holy moly - I would move into the house without even seeing the inside. This house was designed by Frazier Home Design, built by JW2 Building Co., with colors by Susan Tollefsen.

I love how this house by Dixon Kirby has siding lining the arched entryway to the front door as well as on the sides of the house. That attention to detail elevates this attractive house a big step further.

My favorite of the week is this bunkhouse on Lake Champlain in Vermont from the July/August issue of Architectural Digest Magazine. Now this is quite a bunkhouse!

Architect: Gil Schafer, Designer: Patti Smith

I will be back tomorrow with images I saved that inspire me for my own renovation. See you then!

Thanks for starting your week of with me,
