It is hard to believe that this beautiful bright family home in the Los Angeles hills of Topanga was once a hunting cabin. Artist and owner of General Store (which is a stunning lifestyle shop with locations in Los Angeles and San Francisco) Serena Mitnik-Miller shares the cottage with her husband and their newborn son. The renovation of the one room hunting cabin (which was build in 1927) was a labour of love. The couple worked hard to strip the place down. And because it was so fragile they did most of the demolition themselves. I love the decor which is minimalistic yet warm. All furniture pieces and accessories are carefully selected to create a beautiful, balanced atmosphere.
I am all for simple Christmas decorations preferably made of natural materials such as wood and felt. The products of Danish brand Oi Soi Oi are right up my alley! You can see their Christmas collection here.
Christmas is just around the corner, just 1.5 week to go! Today some lovely images to get into the holiday spirit. Those Swedish cinnamon buns look so delicious, don’t they? You can find the recipe here.
This bright and airy apartment in Sydney, Australia, has a beautiful subtle color palette. I love that there is a touch of green in every space. Owner Elli and Cameron have decorated the place with such a meticulous attention to detail, sourcing a lovely collection of vintage and contemporary furniture, light fittings and other details. Both Elli and Cameron are art lovers and they have lots of art and special objects that they want to display without crossing the fine line into ‘clutter’.
This cosy home of Piet and Otti in The Netherlands was once in ruins when they bought it. The almost 100 year old building was neglected and lacked character as all authentic elements were removed. But the couple noticed the potential and decided to drastically renovate the apartment. Only the façade remained in tact, everything else was demolished. It was a hell of a job but the result is warm and cozy family home.
