Ok. This is precisely why I became a blogger! THIS. How do I come across these images without sharing them with you??
Seriously, gorgeous! And it’s not just a home. It could be your home! It’s a hotel that you rent out and use as if it were your home. Or perhaps your best friend’s home! What a concept! Looks like I need to visit Stockholm. lol
The grey painted wood paneling, the beautiful white windows with brass detailing, that marble-carved free-standing tub… seriously?
Here. Click this for more. I can’t even go on right now. I’m type-less.

Warm and cozy blankets are a “must have” this wintery season – and full proof gift giving mastery no matter who you buy them for. And these Norwegian cozies are so special! Modern in design and pattern, but traditional in its material and construction.
I couldn’t decide which one I wanted more… you pick!
See these (The Power Collection and Gullfuglen) and more from Funkleshop.

Sometimes inspiration comes from the most mundane. Stacked shipping containers in this case!
On the outside, the look of these ‘containers’ are what makes the architecture of this home unique and definitely not mundane. Most especially at night, as it lights up from inside and becomes a glowing stack of translucent boxes.

I love the idea of adding a new, contemporary structure to an already existing structure. In this case, Carl Turner Architects, wrapped an L-shaped volume around the rear of a Victorian terraced home, re-imagining the kitchen and dining room into a super contemporary and minimalist space.
The best part… a humongous (yes, I said humongous) window that extends this space out to the garden and the garden into the interior. Talk about maximizing your square footage. Now you have great indoor and outdoor living. Seamlessly.
I especially love the view from inside…that thick black frame around the window opening is so very graphic and delicious to me!

A beautiful, beautiful interior. Decadent. Genuine.
Restored wood beams and ceilings, leaded windows, plaster and stone masonry walls are a backdrop to beautifully ornate furniture pieces throughout.
And then there’s the location! The Greek island of Hydra. So amazing (oh, when will I visit!!!???). Click here to see what lies outside these walls.

Ok… I know. A ‘Cloud House‘??? Really?
Yes. Really. But before I go into the pro’s and con’s of having your home become a neighbourhood attraction… I want to focus on that hallway! I love it!!! What a way to make a mostly pragmatic corridor, something to REALLY rave about!
That is… if you can stop going on about the shape of the addition you just put on the back of your house!
Me personally… I’d stick with a striking hallway. ;)

A modern interior need not be cool, edgy and stark. It can be warm, rough-hewn and natural. Case in point… Fashion designer Jenni Kayne’s home comes together with travertine, salvaged pine siding, hand-hewn oak and board-formed concrete. Warm shades of grey and tan and cream.
I love the fireplace and especially how it is mirrored on the exterior of the home. What a great setting for an outdoor room!
The artwork is key for me in the Master Bedroom. Scale… So important.
And what lucky kids to have such a great playroom! That Beni Ourain rug is simply beautiful.
