A layered home

This eye-catching design is very comfortable and welcoming, an antique table, contemporary art and a beautiful armchair provides a wonderful corner to the homes living room. I thought this home was a lovely Tuesday morning distraction....

To me the living room feels like somewhere I could pop a drink down and relax without feeling too nervous. I love the collection of global fabrics in various textures and patterns.

The timeless white kitchen cabinetry is broken up beautifully with the blue subway tiles.

The custom built shelves behind the beds allows this boy a place to store all his treasures!

The antique maps which has been applied to one of the bedroom walls add's character against the red chairs.

Boathouse Living

I came across the images of this charming boathouse while doing some international real estate searching. I think I have mentioned before that it is one of my favourite pass times....always inspiring! I love the french doors and the large deck which would be the perfect spot for summer entertaining. When winter arrives the living room has a fireplace for those cold nordic evenings!

I can imagine adding some colour and a few of my favourite fabrics to its interior spaces.
It would be delightful to decorate if only it wasn't on the opposite hemisphere to me....Ax
