AN LOS ANGELES HOME WITH A SCANDINAVIAN VIBE

When I first saw this home I thought it would be somewhere in Scandinavia but I was surprised to learn that this beautiful home is located in Los Angeles, USA. The decor of the house, which was built in 1907, is eclectic, sophisticated and timeless. Carefully selected furniture and art from local galleries have been mixed with memories taken from the owner’s travels. From the large panoramic windows in the living room there are a beautiful views of the San Gabriel Mountains.

A PATIO PERFECT FOR SUMMER ENTERTAINING

Bri Emery (aka Design Love Fest) recently had her patio redesigned by Sarah Sherman Samuel. Bri does a lot of traveling and Sarah wanted to make her patio feel a bit like a boutique hotel while giving her a staycation space she wants to hang out and entertain in year round. The pink cushions, upholstered with special outdoor fabric, give a sunny vibe to the outdoor space. If you would like to add some pastel touches to your outdoor (or indoor) space you can add a few kilim cushions in pastel shades for a sunny, boho chic vibe. The lovely umbrella featured in the last image was a DIY project, you can find instructions here.

A COZY COASTAL HOME IN SAYULITA, MEXICO

sayulita5

This stunning place in the coastal town of Sayulita, Mexico, is owned by Brittney Borjeson. Brittany moved to Mexico to escape hectic city life. Last September she found her dream home: a lovely two-bedroom house overlooking the ocean in the southern hillsides of Sayulita. She also launched a shop selling Mexican crafts and artifacts, designed by herself and made by local artisans. I truly love this home as it is simple yet cozy decorated in a natural style. Almost everything in Borjeson’s two-story home is custom-made, either by herself or with the help of village craftsmen. If you like the style of this home: at the end of the post you can find some suggestions to create a similar style.

This lovely light filled home has definitely a Scandinavian feel to it but it is actually located in the Catskills Mountains in New York (USA). It belongs to Jeffrey, who runs J.M. Generals, and Clayton who is an actor working in film, television and theater. I love the sun filled open plan kitchen and dining room. The kitchen is simple yet classic with open shelves which contributes to the airy feel of the roo.
