A romantic turn of the century style home with a modern flair


I don’t really know how to describe this home. It’s featured in Skona Hem, so it features smart Scandinavian style, but it also looks like it could be a home from a fairy tale, or even a doll house. It looks like a home in a period film but at the same time features modern wallpaper, lighting, and fabrics. What do you think?

I really like the tall, thin cupboard in the back

*love* this bedroom

I’m all about mixing and matching chairs

Real NYC apartments and what they cost


I’m probably torturing myself by looking at NYC real estate sites, but I miss the city so much, and it just helps to tide me over until I manage to move back. Not that I’d ever begin to afford to live in one of these homes!

This home is part of a major project at 211 Elizabeth Street. The penthouse closed for just under $7 million, a neighborhood record for price-per-square-foot.

One of my new favorite house tours – a combination of rustic and luxury


It’s quite possible you’ve already took notice of the cover home of the Dec/Jan 2010 issue of House Beautiful. Well if you haven’t, you’re in for a treat. If you already have – you should have seconds! It’s one of the more memorable homes I’ve seen in awhile. You’ll see why below.

This amazing loft space graces the cover

The home is Interior designer Jill Brinson’s Atlanta cottage. Hard to believe this home is in a city!
