Netherlands Farmhouse via La La Lovely Blog

I’m house crushing, currently, on this old Dutch farm in Workum in the north of The Netherlands.  I loved the look of this worn, warm, modern space the minute I layed eyes on it, and to find out it was in Holland made me love it all the more.  Lately, Holland has been hollering my name.  Sometimes, I seem to fall in love with places before  I’ve ever been to visit and this is one (It happened that way with England for me).  Maybe it has something to do with being part Dutch, or maybe just that my siblings loved it there and my friend told me it’s like the land of fairies with all the flowers and the bike bells ringing.

Anyhow, there is just something about this home that says…home.  Come in, get cozy, lets share a cup of coffee (or tea) with some toast (chocolate sprinkle toast to be precise).

pink floor trend via la la lovely

Have you ever thought of colored floors?  I love my white floors, and haven’t thought much of other colors beyond grey, but now I’m thinking pink.

I’m majorly crushing on this office space, located in Moscow.  The pink, although bright, really works as a neutral as well as a pop of color.  Design inspiration was drawn from Wes Anderson, so It’s no wonder I’m oohing and ahhing.

vegetarian cottage via lalalovelyblog

Don’t you love a good window?  What about one that you can see in as much as you can see out?  I’m always taken by older homes, traditional in design and build, with a very modern element or addition.  This home, called The Vegetarian Cottage designed by the English architect firm, Cousins and Cousins, caught my eye a few weeks back and I had to know more.  Clearly, I have exteriors on my mind, at the moment.  And, England on my mind, always.  Because lush back gardens.  Because they name their homes (I’ve given my home a name – have you?).  Because old cherished.  Because new mixed in like it fits old like a glove.

I love the look, I keep seeing over and again, coming out of England

Last week, i included this kitchen in an inspiring rooms post and made mention that it just might show up as a house crush.  And here we are, already, because I can’t get this pretty abode, belonging to Levi, Claudia + Eve and featured on the Beetle Shack,  out of my mind.

Everything about this space catches my eye.  It’s calm and collected.  It’s not fussy and has a touch of fun.  It’s lived in and brings life from the outside in.

emily-henderson-studio

i crush on houses, i crush on kitchens, i even crush on offices.  any space that speaks, really.   and, this studio space is speaking loud and clear to me.  i’m not surprised.  the studio belongs to emily henderson and pretty much all she does is gold (and includes lots of it.  that’s cool by me, too).

her los angeles studio was recently featured on domaine.  i’m kind of geeking out on the way she hung wallpaper.  as, in literally just hung it up.  suspended it from the ceiling.  layer upon layer.  looks like an art installation (i’m especially la la loving the pineapple wallpaper by hygge and west).

all of her props stacked, sorted, gathered in goodness.  this is my kind of shelf situation.  i’d be lost studying the details for at least a good hour.
