Here is yet another Hugh Jacobsen masterpiece…This one is located in Nantucket and is equally stunning. To see the previous post I did on Chopping Bottom Farm, click here. [images courtesy of barns and HJacobsen]
I ♥♥♥ this photo…actually became inspiration for my own chalkboard wall in my kitchen. And that vintage freezer door on the barn door track is fabulous!!! My apologies, but I'm not sure where I found this photo originally [I'm sure some design mag] but had to share it with you :)
Hugh Newell Jacobsen has a very distinct style and aethestic. I ♥♥♥ his use of clean, simple lines and his constant use of white. Super crisp in deed. I've been drooling over his work for years now and always come back to this residence, Chopping Bottom Farm, in Keswick, Virginia. Life on this farm would definitely be good!!! Originally discovered this home in the bookBarns.
Love these flowers from my DP! The pearl beads on the stems give them such style. These were actually for my birthday this year, but wouldn't they make a fabulous Valentine's Day bouquet???? The arrangement was designed by Seleta of Simply Seleta.
I recently discovered this great article [thanks MOM] in the New York Times where Zach Motl somehow stylishly fit his entire life into one tiny 178 square foot studio apartment in Brooklyn, NY. He decided to nix the old decorating idea that "less is more" and live life dangerously by defining his own rules. "The more stuff you add, the bigger it seems [if artfully arranged]". I'm pretty impressed with this guy. I mean he nailed it in my opinion, and he didn't even study design in college [he was majoring in theater in hopes to become an actor]. Guess when you've got it, YOU'VE got it?!?! And I'm sure it helped that he also interned with Miles Redd…LUCKY! Highlights :: Love his artful stacks of magazines, bowl full of neckties, and all the masculine details. And in my opinion, that kitchen is cute as a button! I admire compact yet efficient work spaces.
