This is such a fun, colorful flat with original charm and feminine accents. I love the pops of color and variety of patterns. It pretty much has everything I love…..wallpaper, vintage mirrors, chandeliers and furry throws. The mouldings, weathered floors, and moody colors give this space some serious charm.
Spaces like this give me the same feeling as when I see a women with short boy hair or tattoos all up her arms and I think to my self “ I want to be that kind of girl”….but Im not…..I am a long haired, virgin skined, white couch kinda girl….for now.
Maryam Montague gives Lonny Magazine a tour of her home/boutique hotel/guesthouse in Marrakech. I love the colors and culture of Moroccan design and if anything would convince me to completely change the asthetic of my house, it would be the textiles from Moracco. When I play my pretend game of “I have an unlimited budget in life” I imagine buying a berber rug and morrocan wedding blanket….then I come back to reality where my rugs are from Overstock and blankets are from Homegoods…….no offense overstock and homegoods I still love you. Here are some bedroom pictures to swoon over……..
As the weather here in the East Coast becomes warmer, outdoor living obsession is in full effect. Since I am in the outdoor spirit I am doing what is only expected….sitting in my home goggling images of outdoor spaces. I came across a house in Italy with the most breathtaking views ever! This is where I want to retire. What’s the retirement age now…..like 80?? (I guess I should get me one of those pension things everyone is talking about) Ok, another 52 years and here I come Tuscany!
P.S Look out every window in every picture….it literally brings a tear to my eye.
The place is called Spinaltermine and it is on the Castello Di Reschio estate in Umbrian Italy, which borders Tuscany. It has 2,700 acres which has vineyards, olive groves and oak and chestnut woods. When renting this house, or others on the estate, it comes with 5 star concierge service, maids, cooks and drivers. It also has activities such as, horse riding, mountain biking and hiking. Also, the main town is only 20 minutes away, but who cares about that?
Long time couple, writer Brad Goldfarn and Ralph Lauren’s visual designer Alfredo Paredes, gives Arcitectural Digest a tour of their east village penthouse. formerly a hospital in the 1920′s then music school, before being converted into apartments in the early 80′s. At first sight they envisioned what would be their New York City escape, their home. The balance of masculine and cozy, vintage and industrial is so perfect. I don’t know if it’s bad saying this as a New Yorker, but the best part is you would never think this home is even in New York City. They hit the NYC Jackpot, getting the amenities of the city, with the perks of having a house.
Floor to ceiling windows with no window treatment that allows light to fill up the apartment….exhibitionists maybe??? Either way good for them….I love naked windows!
Warm neutral tones…brown, orange, mustard, gray, cream…..
