Home Tour: Family Friendly Home in Australia

November 4, 2015

Hello friends, how are you today? I received such a nice email from Stella, a blogger and homeowner living along the central coast in Australia with her family, who wanted to share her home with all of us. Yay! It is surprisingly quite rare that homeowner’s contact me, why is this? I don’t get it, I’m not a tiger, I won’t bite. They seem so shy or think I would not be interested for some reason but please don’t be, I love seeing how people live and though I cannot publish all home stories, my goal is one per week so help me people!

Studio Tour: Snug Studio in Hannover, Germany

September 25, 2015

Hello dear friends and happy Friday to you! So! I decided a few months ago to shake things up and challenge myself to a new project – to focus on my photography and build my skills in that area. I’ve been hiring photographers on projects for years but lately, I’m shooting more for clients and even for my next book which has made me happier than I had expected. My uncle and grandfather were both professional photographers so who knows, perhaps it’s a little bit of a calling? I’m not becoming a photographer but I thought I’d challenge myself to take better photos outside of my studio and home and shoot in other locations where I’d be forced to deal with different lighting, objects, people, work with others, make them happy, be in new settings… You know, stuff you need to do in order to push outside of your comfort zone.

I made an appointment several months ago with snug studio, a local design firm that I’ve been following since they launched, and yesterday I visited them to put together this little story for all of you.  This creative firm consists of three friends, Berit, Kerstin and Heiko and their assistant, Bettina. Above is a glimpse of their Continue Reading…

Home Tour: Natural Living in Finland

August 10, 2015

I came across the most beautiful Finnish home and blog over the weekend while my little one was napping, called No Home Without You, based just outside of Helsinki. First, I adore the blog name because it’s just so true. Many overlook this very simple truth about ours homes while installing new drapes and cushions: Interior objects don’t make a home, people (or pets) whom you love, who live there with you, make it a home. The material “stuff” just makes it pretty and allows you to express your creativity while also creating a space that functions well enough to serve your needs.

Of course, in addition to those you love, many of us are very proud of our domestic skills and have decorating high up on our favorite things to do list. I certainly do. The blogger behind No Home Without You, Kaisa Palomaki, also loves to decorate which is evident in the photos she shares on her blog that you will see below – it’s so serene, natural, inviting and beautiful. Kaisa has such a knack for pulling together a wonderful space with a very clear style that is all her own. I also love her DIY projects like this yarn art that she calls an Aztec Wall Hanging shown above her bed. Continue Reading…

Home Tour: Colorful Nostalgic Family Space

July 10, 2015

Are you ready for a colorful, lovely family home tour with a hint of nostalgia? Good! Hey everyone, it’s Holly Marder back again with another beautiful interior to share. And boy, do I think you’re going to love this home! Guida, who is Portuguese, and her Dutch husband Bas reside in a waterfront row house dating back to the early 1900’s with their two sons Tomás and Emílio. Against a characteristic backdrop boasting solid oak floors and original architectural period detail’s, Guida’s style weaves vintage, industrial and modern items with daring lashes of color throughout resulting in a home that is bold yet calm, collected yet clean.

In search of a home that would comfortably accommodate their growing family, Bas and Guida found their dream house close to the town center of Delft, The Netherlands. “We knew immediately that this would be our home because of the space the house offered and the peaceful views of Continue Reading…

Ingrid is the founder and maker of the wood and crochet line of homewares WOOD & WOOL STOOL. Together with her husband Henk, they were long in search of a classic Dutch style home from the 30s, finally finding it in 2004 when a neighborhood of modern homes with a post-war aesthetic went into development on the outskirts of the city of Dordrecht, the Netherlands.  Continue Reading…
