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.

Fashion Friday: A Go To Outfit

I always have few go-to outfits that are in heavy rotation in my closet. One of those is a variation of this look below- the perfect look for a night out where you don’t want to look too done up, but not too casual either. Combining skinny leather pants and a slightly oversize menswear inspired dress shirt paired with uber feminine heels and sparkly jewels. A great mix of tomboy and girly, not to mention casual

Feeding My Blue Obsession.

I saw these pictures from Mark D. Sikes’ Legends of La Cienega window design and just LOOOOOOOOOVED it.  I don’t know why I am having such a blue obsession right now- perhaps all those Y chromosomes from Baby Gates are affecting my brain- but I am loving the bright, bold blues shown here so much.  And I love the combination of all the patterns- from the tile to wallpaper, leopard and chinoiserie vases. I have GOT to work some of this shade into my living room STAT.

A Historic House with Personality

I’ve been feeling a little less than inspired by spreads in my shelter magazines lately and even on Pinterest. Have you?  I crave some more interesting spaces with personality and a unique flair- not just “pretty” spaces.  Sometimes even those that are not my personal style can inspire creative thinking and to take some design risks.

I saw this home on Atlanta Home website and thought it was just one of those spaces.  The historic Greek Revival home, called Honeymoon, was built in 1831 and has been lovingly renovated by design showroom owner James Stanton and his partner.  There is nothing like a good ol’ grand Southern mansion….

Two Fun Events!

I wanted to share with you guys two events coming up that I am a part of! Perhaps you are feeling a need to get out of the house, network and meet some fun people and see some cool spaces? If so, read on.

I was excited to be asked to work on my first big commercial project last year with a development company renovating an old school into condos in Medford, MA.  I was in charge of picking all the interior finishes, from the floor stains and wall colors to the kitchens, baths, lighting and even the doors.  Now they are ready to show and we’re having a party to celebrate (and I’ll share some pics after if you can’t make it)!  Please RSVP to the address on the invite below if you want to come see! They came out awesome!
