Check out this house by Thomas Phifer and Partners located in New York. I love the whiteness in contrast with the surrounding perfectly manucured lawns. The pavilion, with a almost transparent, light-filtering canopy is perfect. The owners, a former museum director and his wife, live happily in this 4,600 SF home which showcases artwork that has been collected over the years. It’s simply stunning!
I spotted this beauty of a house over on my friend Jacquelyn’s blog, Lark + Linen. Courteney Cox’s Malibu mansion. Isn’t it gorgeous? My favourite colour palette – greys and whites paired with reclaimed woods, concrete and you must check out that glass enclosed fire pit. A frameless beauty. Wow!

y obsession with stairs! See more here, and here. No but seriously. Walking on a cool stair, just makes you feel down-right cool. Just sayin’. From art nouveau, to rustic and modern, any of these beauts will be enough to perhaps do a little dance like Fred Astaire as I walk down. Enjoy!

Two words: hubba hubba! While the actual furniture isn’t exactly what I’d be leaning towards (perhaps more of a Montauk Sofa type of dilio, but it’s not far off), can we please take a look at this house’s bones? First off, this place is HUGE! Look at the height of those ceilings! What what gets me immediately are the two-storey windows, reclaimed wood beams, white panelling, stone, marble, and oversized everything! Ah, what a dream. Bon weekend, les amis!
I love tin ceilings. They date all the way back from the late 1800s, bringing sophistication into interior spaces and I find it still true to this day. The best kind is when they’re all shiny and new or when they have an amazing patina on them from aging so well. This architectural element has definitely stood the test of time.
