Century meets modern style

I love the brown in these types of rooms! I think it’s like the little bit of yummy sugar in the tea. If you want to minimize brown in your home, what about using rustic woods (woods that are so worn they are almost bluish-gray) as a compromise? That would get you closer to graphite, I had a very hard time picking out just a few of the photos, but I hope you enjoy the massive picture bomb!

It sure adds a lot of warmth to the interiors, and that is always nice in the colder months.

Boho Luxe

Born in France and raised in London, stylist Marietta Beasley’s current loft in Atlanta, Georgia blends European style with New York ’70s art colony cool — when she acquired her space 15 years ago she was the first person to get a certificate of occupancy in the downtown area. Now it’s both home and studio, with an every changing collection of inspirating pieces from all over the world.

Blue Sky and Sea

This idyllic house in Cadaqués, a pretty town on the Costa Brava with stunning views of the sea, is the summer retreat of Yves and Marie, who each year leave their busy lives in Toulouse, France, and spend their time here in rustic simplicity and peaceful contemplation of the spectacular scenery. Their home, designed by the Catalan architect José Luis Aloso Eijo, is essentially two large glassed in white cubes — one for the children’s and guest rooms, the other the living room and master bedroom. A patio joins the two spaces, and the use of simple natural materials and clever sliding walls keeps things airy and relaxed. Beautiful and magical.

New Life for an Old Rectory

Dilapidated and left empty for several years before its purchase, this late 1800’s rectory in Höganäs, Sweden, is now the beautiful home of Isabel and Peter Lundahl and their two children. Instantly drawn by what she describes as the ‘harmonious peace’ she felt when viewing it for the first time, Isabel knew it was the right place for them despite its shabby state. With its original architecture sensitively restored and surrounded by a lovely garden, this lovely home is a tranquil space to live and create.
