Hello! Happy Monday. I hope you had a great weekend. Today I am highlighting the designs and ideas that inspired me the most over the past two weeks. I hope they do the same for you!
This is such a pretty entrance. It is just as pretty looking out as it is walking in. I have always been partial to a bell jar lantern and two are even better!
There is something about this mural and the nautical tones in this room that speaks to me. I would be happy to "dive" right into the sofa and hang out in this room.
Two really pretty long tables coming at you....
This vintage trestle table turned desk is perfection to me. I also love how the dark artwork balances out the window above the table.
The simplicity of the objects on this table, both above and below, is charming.
I love the faucet and handheld sprayer used in this kitchen. Unexpected and extremely attractive.
The incorporation of books in a kitchen makes me happy. As you know, I am a firm believer that bookshelves and books add charm to any space. The next three kitchens prove that point!
Minimal books in this kitchen, the curve of the cabinetry though is stunning.
The layering of this quilt behind the upholstered headboard makes for a delightful bed wall.
The utility sink used in this powder room is gorgeous! This is another example of making an unexpected and extremely attractive choice - this time in a bathroom. Love, love, love.
The symmetry in this bathroom and the use of the antique cabinet between the sinks is spot on - goals for a kid's bathroom for sure. Simple and stunning.
Moving to the outside....
These (what looks like) limestone stepping blocks are uber attractive.
These next two cottages are so idyllic I would move into either one without even knowing what the inside is like!
Last week, Robert Kime passed away. He was was an English antiques dealer turned renowned and beloved home goods store owner and decorator. He was a lover and creator of fabrics and an avid collector of any items that spoke to him. He designed spaces that reflected his loves as translated through the lives/desires of his clients. As part of his long roster of elite clients, he decorated six houses for Prince Charles over the years. His style has inspired me ever since I studied abroad in London when I was in college and used to roam through the home goods and furniture stores throughout the city. I was struck by the "classic English style" that he embodied. His style has influenced my design decisions ever since.
Here is a room that demonstrates his style perfectly, I think. Gorgeous.
Thank you for stopping by today,
