My next home must must MUST have a decent sized kitchen. This one designed by Erika Powell of Urban Grace Interiors is probably the size of my house. What a dream! So much room to cook up a storm and stash away every possible pot and serving dish and small appliance you could ever need. I included some photos of the outdoor spaces too in case the kitchen wasn’t enough to make you fall in love with this home.

The rough house

You would have a difficult time convincing me there that there was anything more beautiful than exposed wood beams, trim-free plaster walls, old-world tiled and raw wood floors. This home in Limburg, The Netherlands, is breathtaking. Interior design by Niels Maier. Photos by Thomas De Bruyne.

A cozy waterfront home in Florida

Posted on Sun, 4 Oct 2020 by KiM

I spent most of the day yesterday trying to figure out how to get all of the “indoor” plants in my backyard and greenhouse into my house for winter. HOLY SMOKES what a nightmare. I have to sell some of my furniture to make room for them all. Not kidding. Anyway, I’m tired and sore AF and wished I lived in a climate where I would not have to go through this hell every year. Like Florida. This stunning waterfront home on the bayou in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida belongs to interior designer and blogger Erika Powell of Urban Grace Interiors is just what I need. Except move it further south into Mexico and I’d be all set. (Found via this article on Garden & Gun, photos by Emily Followill)

Raw and natural in a West Village townhouse

Posted on Fri, 2 Oct 2020 by KiM

This home is everything that would never come to your mind when you think of a townhouse in New York City. Exposed wood ceilings, extra wide wood floors, painted brick, concrete walls, steel and wood staircase, linen curtains, a stone tub…..this is everything you want in a raw, natural, earthy, wabi-sabi, zen-like retreat. I am in complete awe of the architecture and the incredibly well curated collection of furnishings. Designed by David Cafiero. (Photos: Stephen Kent Johnson)
