Hello! It's been awhile only because I'm on "beautiful photo overload" on instagram (personal) and instagram (for this blog), and I don't want to post just any ol' house! {If you're on instagram, please comment with your link so we can all enjoy your photos!) Stumbled on this cute Chicago home with character and clean lines. She describes her tendency to stock up and has to learn that slight hoarding isn't necessary. The photos speak for themselves. Adorable home. She says, "On letting go: I have come to a point in my life where I realize I don’t have to... Continue reading

I've long been a fan of Ingrid Jansen's style and work. I'm particularly smitten with her kitchen these days. She took a plan cabinet door and turned it into the cutest pinboard. Then she organized her beautiful dishes on an antique serving cart. Beautiful. All images are copyright wood & wool stool and used with permission from Ingrid Jansen. Continue reading

My friend Gina and I sometimes wish our homes looked something like creative store displays or showrooms that we've seen. My list of retail-room-inspiration with an industrial chic edge would include these locations. Photographer Paulina Arcklin took beautiful photos that captured this Amsterdam store called Good Genes and this Garage Bar in Sweden. If the designers of Good Genes and the Garage Bar would design my home, I'd be thrilled! Pretty sure neither designer does house calls to the States, but one can dream! Photos by photographer Paulina Arcklin of these two locations: Good Genes and Garage Bar Continue reading

About the Parisian home of Florence: "From her top floor, typical Parisian apartment situated at the foot of Montmartre, she can nearly touch the clouds. Because what she loves is when the sunlight breaks through the walls and explodes in your face to magnify the white. Florence loves this immaculate white and she has it everywhere, from the old ceramics in her kitchen, to the linen sheets in her bedroom and the teepee she has built in her lounge for her children. She cares for her interior with a passion and it makes you want to do likewise." via The... Continue reading

Those sound quite handy! I bet you'd find a lot of useful products in Meg's store. I just ordered some non-paper towels and can't wait to use them!!

A "newly decorated apartment proves that style doesn't have to come at a price. Sure it's small, but creative touches — like using wooden shipping pallets as a bed frame — will easily inspire your own affordable updates." I'm a fan of the brick wall, all the light, and the color choices! See the full tour here. Continue reading
