The first thing you notice in this Norwegian home is that the dominant color is white. At second glance you can see that the use of contrasts between different materials, textures and objects (old and new) makes the rooms lively, despite the limited color palette. The beautiful sofa in the living room (top image) is from Gervasoni, the lamp next to the sofa is from Jieldé.

terra2

This is the former home of Georgia O’Keefe in Abiquiu, New Mexico. These images, shot by Brittany Ambridge, were featured in a article about this artist’s home. O’Keeffe rehabilitated the original adobe building at Abiquiu. Influences of her 1950s modern aesthetic can be seen in the century-old structure. Adobe fireplaces and walls, and the viga-and-latilla ceilings are typical of New Mexican Pueblo-style architecture. Little of her art is displayed in the home, in stead things that touched her (such as branches, bones, rocks and other found objects that she scavenged from the landscape) are found in many of the rooms.

NORM-VEDBAEK-HOUSE-III-1

This Copenhagen home designed by Norm Architects is full of contrasts. Rustic floors, a large entrance with a classic staircase, natural materials and wooden interior all bring warmth to the light modern style throughout the house. Walls were knocked down to create a more open space. Large windows and white painted walls bring in light.

Sprawling over 500 hectares of beautiful woodland, rolling hills, olive groves and vineyards, Villa Lena in Tuscany, Italy, is much more than just a traditional Tuscan retreat. It is set up as an artist residency and a hotel where art and culture are the heart of the project. This creatively inspiring and serene place, suitable both for individuals and families, offers multiple places to stay and multiple places to rest and enjoy a break. In addition, they run an active program of workshops, lectures and entertainment formed on the basis of the ideas by artists in residence. Guests can stay in apartments or houses which are spread over the estate. Rooms are designed with an emphasis on easy chic, spaces are filled with vintage pieces, recycled furniture and art produced at the residency. For more information you can visit Villa Lena’s website.

lafarme1

La Farme is a creative and letterpress studio based in a small town right above Amsterdam (this must be in the area where I live!) run by Anne Olde Kalter. Anne lives her dream of having a design agency and enjoying ‘farm life’ at the same time. She and her family had moved to the countryside and she tries to create things by hand as much as she can. Her beautiful “Ma’am Step Away from the Computer” print says it all. The poster is a great reminder to stay on track! La Farme has an Etsy shop where you can buy the prints. The ‘It’s OK’ (3rd image) and the “Ma’am Step Away From Your Computer” are also available from online shop BijzonderMOOI.

INSPIRATION: HERRINGBONE & CHEVRON WOODEN FLOORS http://style-files.com/2015/03/18/inspiration-herringbone-chevron-wooden-floors/ http://style-files.com/2015/03/18/inspiration-herringbone-chevron-wooden-floors/#comments Wed, 18 Mar 2015 08:10:50 +0000 http://style-files.com/?p=20556 Continue reading ]]>

herrringbone-1

I love a beautiful herringbone parquet floor, especially in a large space with high ceilings and windows. Today I show you various spaces in which both herringbone and chevron floors can be seen. The difference between the two? Both herringbone and chevron floors are composed of planks of equal size arranged in a zig-zag pattern. Chevron patterns are achieved by cutting the short edges of equal size wood pieces at a precise angle. Placing these angles together point to point creates a continuous zigzag design. Herringbone pieces are also equal size wood pieces but kept straight edged at the short side – making them perfect rectangles. These rectangles are placed short side to one end of the long side and then repeated. In photos 6 and 8 you can see a chevron pattern floor. All other images feature a herringbone floor. I am curious to know which pattern you prefer!
