I’m a lucky girl. I have the most wonderful and patient boyfriend who let me turn our spare bedroom into a craft room, while he suffers out in the dinning room with a table and a bookshelf. What can I say? I have more crafty crap and most of his hobbies involve the garage, so it seemed fair. But I’ve been feeling guilty lately because I’m not great at organizing, making it really difficult to actually craft in my craft room. Essentially, it’s a giant, somewhat orderly storage closet. I have a tendency to grab what I need and just craft in the living room anyway. I know. I’m a jerk. So, I think it’s time to start getting myself organized in a way that makes it easy to use the craft room. For that inspiration, I go to Pinterest (naturally).
This is apparently a summer home, however, I would absolutely live here year-round. It’s bright, it’s cozy, and it’s got some serious family style. I love it. It’s in New York state, but I don’t really care because even if winters get snowy, all the windows and skylights would make is so worth living there. Now that I mention it, how does one clean a skylight? Hmmm…questions for a different time in my life.
I’m sure by now you’re well aware that IKEA is jumping on the mid-century design bandwagon and releasing a whole line of mid-century inspired gems. Great. Awesome. Love it. Looks great. Except, when I was looking through the new IKEA collection there is only one thing that really, really stood out to me…
I think I could live on a farm. At this point in my life, I’m over the big city livin’ and I know that sounds weird to say considering that I’m only 26, but I do think I’m over it. I could slow down for a while. Especially, if farm house living meant a quaint little home with a studio space and plenty of land to run around on. Now, that I could definitely live with.
This wonderful farmhouse in Tennessee is actually on the local register of historic sites and is occupied by an artist and her family, thus explaining the studio space and the creative charm that it evokes.
There’s something so great about the interior design of this home that has a combination of old and new, classic and retro. It still very much feels like a farmhouse, but without the cheesy, over-done look of a Better Homes & Gardens photo shoot. It’s lived-in in the best possible way. I love the collection of vintage rugs and furniture that you could find in your grandma’s house, mixed in with newer style choices. Here, rustic takes a backseat and the classic style elements really shine through.
The perfect space to host a dinner party? I think so.
Between the music and the studio space, it’s obvious that this almost traditional space is the home of a lot of creativity!
Did this dash all your gallery wall dreams? Mine too. I can never compare.
Charming, elegant, classic, modern, and cool – that’s one difficult combination and looks awesome in this house!
There’s nothing I love more than a home tour of an interior designer, because I always imagine that they live perfectly – no book out of place, no dirty laundry on the floor, no dishes in the sink. This is, I realize, a perfectly unrealistic point of view, but the magazine spreads make me believe it’s true! Anyway, I found this home our of interior designer Rodman Primack, Californian living in New York, and was instantly smitten. It was definitely cleaned and staged, but something about it still feels beautifully lived in. And not lived in like my apartment is lived in, where you’re constantly tripping over someone’s shoes. No, not like that. See for yourself.
New need: a gorgeous quilted bedspread!

Plus, the apartment comes with this guy. Where do I sign up?
