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.

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.
my favorite thing about this studio is (keep reading) . . .
this space has me swooning. a pink chair, white beding, green plant, pretty art, wooden plank floors, a cozy gray and white striped throw, a fireplace, and a bed that is saying come relax, take a nap, watch a movie, read a book. sounds perfect to me.
it’s been a busy week painting rocco’s room and turning it into a big boy room. we are filming today and i cannot wait to show you how it turned out. kids rooms are my favorite, for sure, but now, i’m ready to spend some time in my room relaxing….maybe next month!

p.s. this whole cottage, located in melbourne, australia, is simply stunning. you can see more here.

i’m crushing big time on the home of photographer dana van leeuwen (her home + photographs) which was featured in est magazine last year. her home is located in amsterdam which makes me like it even more. i’ve never been to amsterdam, but it’s inching its way up on my places to visit list. my friend just got back and said it was magic, my sister and brother have both been, i’m part dutch, i have a dutch style bike, and when i took the facebook test (i know i know- but you take them too, right?) to figure out what city i should be living in, my results said amsterdam.
i love everything about this home and i’m certain you will too. click thru for more, including a cute cat.
i have been thinking a lot about vacation. like a real vacation. not a business trip. not a conference. not a family holiday trip. a straight up nothing to do but vacation vacation. it’s been a little too long. while my favorite places to go almost always include europe and exploring, i’ve been dreaming of a beach (most recently this pink beach) lately. sitting, listening, reading. nothing to do and no agenda.
i have no beach vacation planned, but i do like to plan all kinds of trips, even if only for my one day some day wish list. the other day i happened upon chateau de la resle, a luxury retreat in burgundy, france and i thought it looked pretty amazing and like something i needed to share. france is always a place i want to visit. i’ve only been once for a few days and it seems like that was forever ago. i’ve never been to a chateau and hadn’t envisioned a modern one, but i’m liking what i see.
this staircase is worth saving in a one day, some day house kind of design file!
thursdays always require a little escape, even if it’s virtual . . . so click through to see more of this modern chateau, complete with a sauna.
