Just checking in since I didn't have a chance to do two posts this week like I normally like to do. So while I have a few minutes today, I thought I'd share some photos of interiors that I've been drawn to lately.
This is photo of the Fat Radish in NYC. Love the leather handles on the cabinets and look how the map is hung. Had it just been tacked up as a poster on the tiled wall, it would not have nearly as much presence. You've got the texture of wood, rope, and iron to add to the pattern and color of the map. I think I might try to duplicate something like this in our shop.
Guess I'm really loving maps and worn wood lately...
When I pinned this photo with the description "sink on the side" my sister commented that it would be a awkward to use. Well, I can see her point. But I have to say that I enjoy seeing spaces used differently. Look how the pendants are hung too.
I'm pretty in love with this pantry. It reminds me of something you'd find on an old sailing ship, minus the breakables up on shelves, of course.
So, I'm putting it out to the world: Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, Ballard Designs, you all would be wise to duplicate and manufacture this stool. And for that matter, an island they could safely attach to. I think they'd sell like hotcakes.
Moving away from kitchens, this is one I've been meaning to show for awhile. I'm pretty sure those are coffee filters on the wall. I really like them.
And that brings me to the point of this post -- coffee filters in decorating can be a bit too sweet, frilly, or cutesy for my decorating taste. Rustic/country can really easily run in two different directions and I'm finding I'm much more attracted to the more serious, spare, and modern (and neutral) variety. Which I'm sure is evident in these photos.
It's been such a busy few weeks. I'm really missing reading and commenting on blogs and am hoping to get some time to do that this weekend.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
