A Break.

I had a post kind of started for today.  But we traveled a lot yesterday to get to a little mini-vacay, caught up with family, then didn’t sleep last night and this morning find myself frazzled, tired and uninspired. So today I choose to take a breather.  I’m going to go sit by the pool, take a walk, stretch, eat a lot (my morning sickness finally left!) and enjoy my baby’s little kicks. And then I’ll be back tomorrow. I promise.  I hope you enjoy your day too.

Extreme Real Estate: Boston vs. New York

So we all know that New York and Boston have a long-standing rivalry, mostly surrounding sports of course (Go Pats! Go Sox!).  But as someone who has lived in both cities, I think you are either a die hard New York person, or a die hard Boston person. I fall into the latter camp.  I found living in New York to be anxiety-producing and claustrophobic- but I don’t mind a visit now and then for work or to see friends, of course! But I know people who find Boston way too small.  Regardless, both cities have awesome (and absurdly priced) real estate.  I peruse real estate listings like most people watch Good Housewives, as pure, fun, squeal inducing entertainment.  And this week I found two really cool properties and wonder, which would you choose (if you had 4-6 million to spend, of course). Let’s get dreaming…

This has to be one of the coolest listings in Manhattan– it’s basically clapboard cottages on the roof of a brick building on 13th and 3rd.  It’s not only incredibly unique, but also drop dead gorgeous inside and with tons of outdoor space (for New York).

DIIIIEEEEE over this brick work.

OH OTOMI.

I remember when Serena & Lily was a new brand years ago seeing this crib bedding set below and thinking “they will probably stop making this by the time I have a baby but I am obsessed with it and maybe I should buy it”.  Well, I convinced myself that was pure craziness/ bad luck and did not. And now that I’m designing my own nursery I am PISSED at Past Erin.

I adore the linen and white color scheme and the embroidered Otomi-inspired details. LOVE. It might be a smidge feminine for Baby Gates but hey, it’s tan and has animals. And I still love it! Waaaaahhhhhh!

A Rustic Modern Cape House

I spotted this adorable 900 square foot Cape Cod house in the Boston Globe Magazine yesterday while perusing the Sunday paper. I love not only the darling size of this retreat, but also the unexpectedly non-beachy style designed by Brad Walker of Ruhl Walker Architects.  Since the owners use it year round, it makes sense to keep the home’s decor a little less expected “summertime casual”.  I LOVE the old beams and historic details mixed with some more modern elements and color palette. Take a peek:

The guest bedroom might be my favorite room. I love the beam and antique door which is emphasized by the grey wall color (find my favorite medium grey wall colors at the bottom of this post!)

They kept the palette the same throughout since the space is small.  This helps open things up and offer a sense of continuity.

A small but rustic kitchen is made slightly sleek by the removal of cabinet doors up top and a coat of dark grey paint.

I love the juxtaposition of the modern ladnscape painting and antique portraits. This wall color really highlights the art as well as the old beams!  Since this is a second home, most of the decor was budget friendly and bought online.

Things get lighter upstairs in the master bedroom where the walls are white but hints of the grey wall color from downstairs are found in the bedding.

Another example of old meets new with a vintage desk and chair paired with a modern light and upholstered headboard.

The couple outside the cottage. So adorable.

Love this look? Here are some suggestions on how to get it:
