Fashion Designer Jenni Kayne's Rustic Contemporary Home

12.16.2014


Jenni Kayne designed her house the way she designs her clothes, simple & chic. This house is on my top 10 list of most coveted. I love the contemporary rustic mix and the entrance in the photo above just blew me away. For the complete story please read the commentary on popsugar.




This beautiful photograph is by Richard Misrach and I absolutely love it!




Sigh......what a house

Mason Jar Magic - Holiday Special

12.07.2014

I love Mason jars and I love getting them filled with yummy things to eat and drink so I thought I'd post a few of my favorite Mason jar presents from around the web.

How about some Hot Chocolate along with some great toppings. Sure to warm you up on those cold winter nights. 
I couldn't resist this one given the play on words. It's a great idea to thank your guests for coming over and saying hello and it's a low cal snack to boot! 
Is there any better kid pleaser than a Mason jar filled with cookies and topped with a Dinosaur?
Have a Jurassic Party and give them as favors. 
and for those of you who would prefer to give something other than food, why not consider this sewing kit from anthropologie.

Happy giving!

Felt Ball Coaster

11.17.2014


Super easy and fun to make, these felt ball coasters will spruce up any decor during those cold winter months. All you need are some felt balls (90-100 1 cm balls per coaster), some cheap coasters - I used some plastic ones I found at IKEA - and some E600 glue.

Start by gluing the first felt ball in the center of the coaster and work your way around.

Rustic Inspiration

10.17.2014



This time of year always makes me wish I had a Country place. I love the outdoors and I especially love the Fall when all the leaves are changing colors and the sun surprises you with a warm day. Sitting outside covered in a wool blanket, having a cup of tea and reading a magazine or knitting is one of my favorite things to do. It makes me feel like there is an endless amount of possibilities around the corner...





Felting class Fun

9.17.2014


This is Regina who was in from Brazil to meet her new granddaughter (her daughter is sitting next to her) and she created this gorgeous bunny with big pink ears. 


This is an action photo of Isa (Regina's daughter) who decided to make this cute little Hampster. He's still a work in progress. Truth be told Isa's a bit obsessive detail oriented when it comes to her needle felting so it took her a little longer. 

and finally this is our teacher - the lovely and talented Samantha who is holding this totally real looking gnome (admit it, you'd scream if you woke up and saw him at the foot of your bed) . Sam is a fiber genius. If there was a Superhero that improved peoples lives with knitted and felted stuff Sam would be it. Hey she already does that so I think I'll call her "Fiberwoman" (sorry Sam for when you read this!).  


I have created a dinosaur whom is currently missing his pink spots but when he's finished, DINO (yes I called him Dino) is GOING TO ROCK! 

A simple pop of yellow

Het Atelier Interieur

9.10.2014


Het Atelier has done some very nice projects but this one is my favorite. The combination of rustic and contemporary as well as contemporary and antique elements has my heart beating  off the charts. I  love the textured cement floor, irregular built in shelving and black accessories combined with all that marble in the kitchen.



This glass pendant light adds just the right amount of color in this neutral space!


Totally smitten with the wood plank flooring.




This powder room is just so cool! Refined, simple and ethnic all at once. 
If I could re-do my small bathroom I would do it like this.
