Just some photos of a lovely home, all in monochrome.

I’m loving the warm light mixed with shades of white, black, and grey. Get me in that kitchen! Or even better, get me in that tub!

Later in the week we’ll be posting another studio update from a casting Johnny did last night! This casting produced a total of 20 new pieces, ranging from rose-cut diamonds, components for broaches and earrings, and more for his latest series using the combination of steel and gold. Good stuff! Stay tuned…

I’ve been finding loads of gorgeous imagery on Pella Hedeby’s blog STIL inspiration, this home in Singapore being no exception.  I’m loving the minimal and simplistic approach to the design and decor.  And that top photo (by Rupert Singleton) might just be my favorite interior shot ever… 

See more photos right here.  Have a great weekend!

I can’t help but share this house tour from yesterday’s Design Sponge.  This is the home of Jason Gnewikow and Jeff Madelena (owner of Williamsburg’s Oak).  Located in the Catskills, their home fits everything I’m into aesthetically lately, to a T: the white tiled bathroom, hearty wooden details, glossy black doors, and neutrals set off with a pop of vibrant color (still working on getting up the guts with that last one).  I’ve seen bits and pieces of these photos floating around Pinterest but didn’t realize they’re all from under one (amazing) roof.  Click here to see more photos from the tour.

On Wallpaper…

Growing up it was so very uncool.  With all the beautiful designs out there these days, I can’t help but think about adorning some space with wallpaper, even if just an accent wall or the inside of a closet.  These designs in particular are catching my eye:

1. Polka Polka, Abigail Borg

2. White Moth, Timorous Beasties

3. Lush Wallpaper, Makelike

3. Pineapple, Timorous Beasties

4. Seascape Wallpaper-Winter, Abigail Edwards

5. see #4

6. Succulent Wallpaper, Makelike

7. see #6

8. Ms. Ward, Grow House Grow

9. Ms. Treat in Pineland, Grow House Grow

10. Hotel Fantome in Absinthe, Grow House Grow 

On Monday I mentioned that we painted our living room white.  Here’s a little taste of the before and after (click to view larger), plus a few detailed shots.  We’re so glad we took the time to do it; the entire space feels so much cleaner and brighter.  

Lately it seems I’m constantly (read neurotically) trying to refresh and renew our living arrangement. I think it’s in part due to all that lies outside our doors that isn’t easy to control (rustic boarding school living with teenagers is anything but clean or comfy).  Though this house isn’t ours to own, we like to treat it as if it is.  We’re lucky to live in this little house on the hill.       

Just Some Big ‘Ol Beams for your Monday.
The walls in our house are mostly all natural, untreated wood.  When we moved in we swore we’d never paint them.  But in the four years since our minds and tastes have changed, and alas, we spent the last couple days painting the living room white!  I’m so glad we did it- those dark corners that hide dust are now bright, clean, and fresh.  Out with the old, in with the new!  Later on in the week I’m going to play photographer and stylist and share some before and after shots.
Have a great week everybody.
