Jenni Radosevich can be called a professional DIY-er. She shares her creations on her blog I Spy DIY and it will come as no surprise that her home style is truly amazing. A few years ago she bought an 1890s home in Milwaukee that needed an extreme renovation. In just 4(!) months she transformed the place into a beautiful home and after living in it for a year she just added the finishing touches and the result is absolutely stunning.
It is no secret that I love everything that Holly Marder of Avenue Lifestyle styles. I have probably featured almost all her projects on this blog or my tumblr. Holly’s design aesthetic is just simply beautiful. With light colors, Scandinavian design and the occasional vintage items she makes every space cozy, bright and interesting. This home office is her latest project, it’s part of a penthouse redecoration whose bedroom I have already featured before on my blog. The home office has a minimalistic feel with lots of white, grey and light furniture. The lovely light green wall give the space some color. I love the brightness of this space, without making it feel cold or empty. This home office is the perfect space to get inspired and get some work done!
I’m really enjoying light beach style homes the last few days. Yesterday I showed you a beautiful bright seaside home in South Africa and today we’re going to Sydney for another bright home on the coast. The surroundings of this home are visible in the interior (which is designed by Hare & Klein) by the use of light colours, wooden pieces, various blue-tones and lots of different textures. The owners wanted an interior that is ‘authentic and not showy’ that draws inspration from the city and the ocean. This resulted in a very relaxed and sophisticated family home on the seaside in Sydney, I think you must always feel calm in a home like this.
The country home of Italian couple Ludovica and Roberto Palomba of the Milan-based architecture firm Palomba Serafini Associati is everyhting you hope for in an Italian country home. It’s hard to imagine this light home any different but the property experienced a big transformation since it was originally built in the 17th-century as an oil mill. The couple wanted to keep the space as original as possible so no new walls were added giving this home large open spaces and the floors are made of local stones. The only problem was the lack of natural light, which they created by putting in skylights. As you perhaps know I’m a big fan of renovating old buildings and this country home in Italy shows that even a dark old oil mill can be transformed into a beautiful light & minimalistic home with many architectural details (just look at those amazing arches all through this home). This 17th-century Italian country home is a dream come true.
The kitchen is the focal point in this light Scandinavian apartment thanks to the tapering walls but also because of the 1920’s style and the cozy feeling they created. The entire apartment is styled in a typical Scandinavian style with many white and grey tones and I love that they placed the sofa in the middle of the room facing the kitchen and the large windows. But the best part is definitely that lovely cozy and light kitchen.
