A dark 1940s bungalow in the state of New York was transformed into into a modern and bright, 2,100-square-foot house with generous windows. But a very modern looking house can feel cold so owner Sloane Klevin asked British interior designer to “make it warm’. Selina softened the monotone color palette of white, black and brown with colorful Turkish kilim rugs, which add character and warmth to the various spaces. Also some ‘country-industrial’ elements such as sliding barn doors, hand-forged iron hardware and barn lights were incorporated into the interior. Similar vintage kilim rugs can be found here.
It’s a grey Fall day in this part of the world which inspired me to do today’s post entirely in beautiful grey. At the end of the post you can find links to the various products and source. Have a wonderful weekend!
A while ago I featured a lovely Greek home shot by photographer Carla Coulson. Carla recently opened her Etsy shop Departure Lounge where she sells prints of her beautiful travel photos. There are some stunning images from her trips to Paris, Italy and Greece for sale. The photos featured in this post are from Carla’s trip to Puglia Italy where she stayed in Masseria Cimino. You can see more of this 18th century farmhouse that has been transformed in a stylish boutique hotel here and here.
This weekend I did some serious online shopping. With colder weather approaching I realized that I did not have any fall/winter clothes. I did most of my shopping at Everlane as I love their basic elegant yet casual fashion. Everlane works with best factories around the world, the very same ones that produce your favorite designer labels, but they manage to keep their designs affordable. My favorite fall pieces is the black cotton shirt (above) and their chunky knit cardigans (I bought the winter white cardigan and also one in navy).
I love this beautiful wooden and concrete kitchen. This house is often rented for commercials and magazine products so I keep seeing this lovely kitchen popping up on tv and print. The cabinets are made from old, reclaimed wood. The concrete countertops give the kitchen a raw look. Concrete stains easily as concrete is porous but you can prevent serious stains by rubbing olive oil in to the concrete. If you don’t want stains at all you can better use a Ceasarstone countertop in a grey concrete-like color (like we have in our kitchen).
