Unlock the entire Houzz
the stainless kick plate at base of cabinets and 2 tone color scheme of the cabinets, in blue and dark brown, with the other 2 colors of white and shades of grey. The grain in the floor is perfect, too. Love the look of 3 hanging lights, over an island.
This is my idea of a grown-up club house! It looks like something out of Tin Tin. Lounge Ahoy!
oooooo, ahhh. Robin's egg blue door says, "crack me open and take a flight of fancy". It is innocently joyful.
I like the open-ness and the way the ceiling of wood can be seen to extend from outside to inside, and the other end of the hall also ends with a glass door, from all sides- creating the illusion that this hall/entry space extends on and on like a column of light. A very bright and open welcome.
the color of the pumpkin walls and the dark matte brown, up the stairs, perfectly compliments the wood tones in the floor, and is crisply contrasted in a very satisfying way, with the white built in bookcase and wall of staircase.
luxurious palette of warm white and silver grey. It is velvety and sumptuous. I love the light, shadows, texture and iridescent, glow-y, fluid light. There is so much complexity, in this look. It really is quite sophisticated. I could go on and on. So many details done with a light touch of subtlety. It reminds me of a shell, found on the beach, when it is still wet. Like a pearly clamshell, in the wet sand.
Pristine and nice use of natural elements and angles that, to my novice eye, look Frank Lloyd Wright. Love the industrial metal, with rivets, and the over sized kick plates on the front doors, and square, modern sconces, and lighting from the ground up, done with a very minimal design.

Oly Studio Serena Drum Pendant
The kind of Cadiz shell lampshade that MAKES a living room or sitting room!
Moravian Star Pendant Light - $149
This kind of sculptural star pendant has been a love of mine since 1994, and I will never, ever stop admiring it. (I have 3, already, for candles, but I NEED one that is electric.) I think it would be a great light outdoor, over the front door --- as long as a big wind did not send it swinging and crashing ----- maybe too delicate, for that? These glass stars remind me of outer space light houses, and also - the Chic Montauk Farmhouse of my old friend, Ana.
Capiz Pendant - $199
This light is so PRETTY. I want it over my rocking chair, in the corner of my bedroom, where I can sit and read to my child, or write in my journal.

multi faceted wall sconce - $289
I have loved these kind of faceted mirrored wall candle sconces since I was a wee child. The are downright MAGICAL. I want my place to have the open joyfulness of a minimal artist's studio, and the MOODY MYSTICAL CHARM of a HAUNTED FAIRYTALE CASTLE. It is a challenge I love to play with.
Faceted Mirror Sconce - $129
Very Belle Epoche. "Modern" lightbulb - electric mirrored sconce. Like something Thomas Edison would design to illuminate the entrance to the elevator of the Eiffel tower, at the 1889 World's Fair. (Thank you Magic Tree House, book number 35, "Night of the New Magicians").

Large Vintage Silver Plated Paul Revere Footed Bowl by High Street Market
Surprise! perfect for a spa or alter, filled with flower petals.
Yes, yes, yes! That is exactly what I want to re-create! THAI STYLE, LOVE!
This reminds me of a beautiful Indochine bath, like at the resort Zazen, in Koh Samui, Thailand. (It is a French place - I know Thailand was not really in the French Colonial of Indochina).
Reminds me of the many of the tropical Botanical Gardens, I have visited, and enjoyed - like the original, for me, Fairchild Botanical Gardens, near my beloved Matheson Hammock Park, both, full of childhood memories.
