I adore converted barns. This is just charming. Designed by Emma Burns. She used a lovely color from Farrow and Ball called pigeon on the exterior doors in gloss. English countryside calling.

Renovated Barns in the Hamptons

I’m obsessed with this home. The property is made up of various different renovated barn structures from the mid-18th-century. It is owned by Adelaide de Menil (photographer and an heir to the Schlumberger oilfield-services fortune) and Edmund Carpenter. This is my dream for a mountain house. I think it is absolutely gorgeous. There are 14 barns in total scattered throughout the property; various guest houses, a main house, a pool house etc.

Elm Park Road, London

I just discovered Michaelis Boyd. He has created some of the most gorgeous London renovations and of course, can’t forget, he is the behind behind the Soho house in Berlin and LA and the Byron burger chain. This project is his Elm Park Road project…so cool.

This looks like the best room in the house. What a cool hideaway.



Which White?

I am a perfectionist and picking white paint is a major deal to me. I battle over which is the more perfect white paint for either the exterior or interior. Here are a few of my favorites.


Benjamin Moore Brilliant White Paint, Best Exterior Paint Colors, Gardenista

O’Neill Rose Architects used low-luster Benjamin Moore Brilliant White on this darling house. For the porch and ceiling, they used Donald Kaufman Color DKC-44 in semi-gloss. Love the DKC paints!


Benjamin Moore Cloud White, Best Exterior House Paints, Gardenista

Steven Harris Architects used Benjamin Moore Cloud White. This one I have used multiple times and it really is crisp.


Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee, Best Exterior House Paint Colors, Gardenista

This Santa Monica house by Tim Barber is painted in Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee which is very creamy and soft.


Sherwin Williams Pure White, Best Exterior House Paints, Gardenista

On this Brentwood, CA home, Meg Joannides of MLK Studio chose Sherwin-Williams Pure White for the exterior and Benjamin Moore Onyx for the shutters.



Some More Sara

Last week, I introduced you to Sara Story Design. I couldn’t resist…here is a bit more!


Sarah Story

Super cool tufty sofa. This room feels so fun with the striped rug and the extreme tufts of the sofa. It’s pretty much the perfect family room for a beach house.


Sarah Story

Shingles and black doors!

I am really liking this surprise of a purple ceiling! It’s a really great and unexpected way to bring color into a room…why not on the ceiling!
