Those of you who love design blogs have probably seen the Michigan home of Michelle Adams in House Beautiful a few times in your internet travels, but that doesn’t keep me from wanting to post it here too and discuss her charming abode. You must remember Michelle as the editor of Domino, back when Domino was DOMINO- so we all know what a great eye she has from all those dog eared old copies of the magazine. And if you’ve been following her on Instagram, you know she’s been renovating this house back in her home state of Michigan for a while. And the final result did not disappoint any of her fans, especially me! I love the palette, the mix of high and low and the personal charm each space exudes. It’s a great example of what I think a youthful, well designed home should look like. And at the end of the post, I have lots of sources for finds just like those shown here!
I just die over the marble mantle she brought in to replace her dated one with. Those graceful, traditional lines in combination with the (replica?) Serge Mouille ceiling fixture is French perfection.
I especially love the color palette of white, blue and black. Especially since I am tryig to figure out how to combine blue and black in my own living room update. This provides ample inspiration for me! And that glass pendant? RAWR.
Her kitchen is simple, classic and timeless- which is how kitchens should be- in my opinion!
I recognize those Hollyhock Pyne drapes from her old Manhattan place- so it’s fabulous to see items re-used in a new home. Proof even the super fashionable don’t see the need to toss something perfectly lovely just because it’s been “done” before. This is one of my all time favorite fabrics too (it was the pillow in my guest room in the book). I love the mix of the floral pattern with the steel, streamlined cabinet!
An eat in dining area in the living room with great leather side chairs.
Her master bedroom has moody navy/black walls which offset the drapes and bed perfectly.
Love that she tricked out the shallow walk in with custom built ins- make every inch count in a small closet by investing in this kind of thing!
A gorgeous mix of a traditional chest with modern art.
Love this guest room with the tabriz rug, overscale photo and leopard accents (hello.)
I also LOVE that she painted the outside a super dark grey color. Modern yet classic.
Want to find items that look like those shown in her home? Here ya go!
