Hey there, everyone — happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Ours was really nice; there was a party for Greyson’s last day of work on Saturday, which was a blast, and then he and I went out on a date last night. We saw ‘Gone Girl,’ which is not for those who spook easily, but it was really good! I read the book several months ago and devoured it, so it was nice to see it turned into a crazy good adaptation. We went out for sushi afterward — our favorite date night meal. 🙂
A few weeks ago I was looking through an old Elle Decor magazine and I stumbled upon a feature of the most beautiful and serene Hamptons cottage I’ve seen in a long time. It belongs to Malcolm Carfrae, the head of communications of Calvin Klein, and I just had to share it with you today. It’s super elegant and not at all fussy — my favorite combination. Let’s take a look inside!
I’m in love with this paint color, first of all. It’s blue-y gray and so reminiscent of the sea without being a typical blue beach house color.
Really pretty neutrals in this guest room and plenty of texture. I also love the added drama with the white lamps and black lampshades.
How cute is this kitchen? I love the mix of old and new, sleek and country-chic.
Texture everywhere — the only way to properly do neutrals like this. Lots to appreciate in this room.
Monochromatic and completely relaxed. I love the little zest of purple with the flowers — just enough to throw your eye around the space in a really interesting way.
This is the pool house — and there is a little bit of a different vibe in here. Slightly rustic-contemporary-and-industrial. A bit of all of those elements becomes pleasingly eclectic and really comfortable and fun.
What do you think of this house? Do you have a favorite room?
